As i purchased oxygen 8, a midi keyboard, it came with a acid express demo. I have the regular acid, so how can i incorporate my midiman keyboard with acid. It would be great if it worked out , thank you

Fist install your midiman software. If your going usb, make sure you turn on your keyboard before booting up acid. In Acid: Options> Prefs.>Midi then put a check in the usb keyboard boxes to utilize your keys. Apply it, then OK.
Click on insert softsynth then click on Sony DLS softsynth if thats all u have. That should open a window called softsynth properties. Pick a sound from that list of sounds and enjoy! Oh, make sure you click on the enable real -time midi button (looks like a little clock w/arrows) to be able to hear what your playing. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the adivce, but it seems to me that i might possibly have an older version of acid, ( since the instruction you gave me only went up to a certain point ), is there still a way for me to get around this, thankfully, i am now able to further imply oxygen in other programs, its just that acid is buggin me,

thank you
