When setting up a new system or installing P5 and using the first few times you may notice that the volume is very low or non-existent in your speakers. You may have tried ASIO vs WDM and experimented with volume settings and such but have not found a solution to the problem. You should try these two suggestions:

MIDI Controllers

Korg Kontrol49

M-Audio Axiom Keyboards

M-Audio Trigger Finger

Novation X-Y Pad

Qwerty Controller

External Synths
