I plug my midi to USB cable in the midi out of my keyboard, and then plug the usb into my laptop.

The cable that I am using came with Guitar Hero, so I select the GH MIDI INTERFACE option when I select what i am arming my track with. Then nothing happens, when I press keys it wont record anything and I dont know what to do.

I set the midi out to channel 1, and set it the same in the program on my laptop but still nothing happens.

I am using Acoustica Mixcraft, doI need some sort of plugin (VST) that allows me to play keyboard? What can I do to make this work?
Also I just tried to connect it in Poizone, and it says there are no midi inputs available..?
