Generic Midi Usb Driver

-->

This article helps to fix an issue in which Windows 10 doesn't install specific drivers for USB audio devices on the first connection.

Applies to: Windows 10, version 1703
Original KB number: 4021854

Install any USB drivers that came with your controller. Many controllers use the standard OS drivers and will appear as ' USB Audio Device (generic controller) ', see the Input list. Connect the controller to your PC, turn it on and follow the Windows installation procedure. The standard USB ' connected ' process should happen.

Symptom

When you connect a USB audio device to a Windows 10 Version 1703-based computer the first time, the operating system detects the device but loads the standard USB audio 2.0 driver (usbaudio2.sys) instead of the specific device driver.

An event type called a MIDI Continuous Controller event (or MIDI CC) allows you to control parameters on the VI. The Acorn Instruments Masterkey USB controller keyboard series for example has two wheels labeled pitch bend and modulation. When you move the pitch bend wheel, you will increase or decrease the pitch of the note. Sep 05, 2015 After connection, windows 10 detected the device as a USB Composite Device. I could not set or add a new device for the recording device. Is there a specific driver you can recommend for me to install so as to enable windows 10 to detect the MIDI input from my piano keyboard. Sep 20, 2011 Since USB device name changes are permanent and won't be overwritten by bootloader updates, this issue was really hard to find;) I also checked the SysEx issue with some new debugging methods, but without success: it's clearly a legacy driver issue. When I'm using MIDI-Ox and sending some MIDI events to trigger SysEx messages.

Cause

This issue occurs because the USB audio 2.0 driver (usbaudio2.sys) isn't classified as a generic driver in Windows 10 Version 1703. Therefore, the system assumes that a compatible, nongeneric driver is installed for the device even though the driver is generic.

This issue also causes Windows 10 Version 1703 to postpone the search for other compatible drivers through Windows Update that typically occurs immediately after you install a new device.

Resolution

To fix this issue, use one of the following methods.

Method 1

To resolve this issue, install update 4022716.

Method 2

If the device-specific driver is distributed through Windows Update, you can manually update the driver by using Device Manager. For more information about how to do this, see update drivers in Windows 10.

Method 3

If the device is not yet connected, first install the device-specific driver, such as by using the appropriate installer. After the device-specific driver is installed, Windows 10 will select that driver instead of the standard USB audio 2.0 driver when you first connect the device.

Note

See the device manufacturer's user guide for specific instructions about how to install the driver.

Method 4

If the driver isn't distributed through Windows Update, you can manually reinstall the driver. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Install the device-specific driver (see Method 2).
  2. Open Device Manager.
  3. Right-click (or tap and hold) the name of the device, and then select Uninstall.

When it restarts, Windows will try to reinstall the device by using the device-specific driver.
