Windows 7 midi

My midi hardware it working nice in my DAW home studio but today I noticed that I do not have the ability to change the default midi out device in Windows 7. After googling around it seems that this was also the case in Windows Vista. But luckily there are options to configure the default out device!

The first that I found was the Windows Vista MIDI Mapper control panel and minutes later the Vista MIDI fix. The control panel application fixed my problem but only lists hardware midi stuff like my MIDI USB keyboards and the hardware midi output of my Creative card as the Vista MIDI fix application lists more midi out options but I haven’ not tested those yet.

Both applications run without any problems here on my Windows 7 RC x64 installation.

OpenSUSE 11.1 VirtualBox additions

I tried to install the virtualbox machine additions in my OpenSUSE guest but had some problems. Mouse integration worked but display resizing did not. It turned out that I just didn’t read the output from the additions package well.

Remove all "Modes" lines from the "Screen" section and any Option "PreferredMode" lines from "Monitor" sections.

Did that by removing the Option from the Monitor section and all Modes lines from the subsections of the Screen section and it now working as it should with display resizing. The only thing that does not work is clipboard sharing.
