Multiple ports for Livid instruments

Why are there 2 input and output ports when connecting Livid controllers to software? I am using Pro Tools with a Base 2 and Code 2...

It shows as such; Base 2 [Emulated] MIDIIN2 (Base2) [Emulated]

Looks the same for the Code also.

Also in Bome Midi Translator each device shows 2 input and 2 output ports. The reason I ask is because I believe they are responsible for other midi devices to loose sync with Pro Tools. If I remove either my Base 2 or Code 2 from the midi devices list, to make their ports available for other software, my HUI Controller looses sync with Pro Tools and becomes non functional.

Is there firmware available to make Livid controllers multi-client?


  • Thanks Moon, I understand about the second set of ports now and they are left disconnected from any software.

    My system is Windows 7 64-bit and when the Code or Base 2 are plugged in to the system for the first time, I cannot connect either device to two software programs. I assume as you mentioned that it has to do with the version of OS and the fact they are class-compliant midi devices.

    I did find an older x-emu driver and actually updated the Code and Base2 drivers with this, and it allowed each device to open their ports in 2 different software programs.

    They still function properly and connect to their editors, but I'm interested why installing different drivers allows me to use them in such a way.
