Remap missing midi port M-Audio FW 410

Postby Andriessen » Sun Jul 06, 2008 3:27 pm


For some strange reason M-Adio have decided to rename their Firewire 410 soundcard with a firmware update. It now no longer is recognized as M-Audio FW 410 Midi but as FW 410 MIDI by my computers.

As a result Forte now displays the Missing Midi Port message everytime I open my rack. What can I do to get rid of this message?

Probably the easiest way is to open the RCF file in a good text editor (after making a backup of course) and doing a text search and replace on the port name.

THe RCF file is an XML file, so its human readable.

Some improvements in this area are in the works.

Having a similar problem transferring a rack to another system and getting a remap missing midi port message. Instead of replacing I need to remove this port. Tried the text editing and deleted every instance of the mention of the device but then couldn't open the rack. could you be more detailed about how to edit the file for this and save in the same format.
