Installing SCS3 DaRouter in Windows Vista

DaRouter is Stanton's powerful MIDI translation software.  It allows you to use presets to configure your Stanton controller for use with a number of applications.  It also allows us to give our controllers features that would not normally be available (like MIDI feedback in applications that don't directly support it).

DaRouter always has the latest presets included (at the time of release) so these will install automatically as well. DaRouter will install the application and presets, as well as a “Virtual MIDI Driver” which allows DaRouter to communicate with the application it is controlling.

The first step is to download the DaRouter software.  It's likely that you received an email with a link to download DaRouter.  You can also go to the respective product page and follow the DOWNLOAD link on the right side navigation.  To find your product page, start at and click on the controller you own.

Run the .exe file, you may be prompted by a Windows Vista warning dialog. Simply click “Run” to start the installer. Windows will display
a “User Account Control” dialog. Press “Continue” to start the installation.

Once the installer is running click “Next >” past the welcome screen.  Then Read and agree to the license agreement and click “Next >”.

The next screen will allow you to choose an installation path.  We recommend keeping it at default.  Click "Next>".

The next dialog will let you set installation options.  Here you can set which icons to install. We suggest always creating the start menu shortcuts. If you are experiencing issues with the virtual MIDI driver there is also an option to do a clean install of the driver, only click this if you are experiencing issues or prompted to do so by Stanton support. Click “Next >” and the application will install.

After the application is installed, you'll be prompted to install 2 virtual MIDI ports.  Vista will display a security warning and ask you if you'd like to install the driver.  Click the "Install" button.

Next you will be prompted with a dialog asking where to find the driver software. Select “Locate and install driver software (recommended)”
to continue. Windows will then pop up a dialog asking for permission to install, click “Continue” to allow the driver to install.

At this point, the driver files will be copied over.  Once done, click the "Finished" button.  Wait a few seconds and the whole process will start over for the second virtual MIDI driver.  Once done. you'll be notified that your hardware is installed correctly.

At this point, DaRouter should be properly installed on your computer.  If there was a problem with any step of the driver installation, please refer to this KB article for possible causes.

    The x1300 is rather out-dated and unrdepowreed by today's graphic card standard. The game you want to play may simply need more graphic power than that chip can provide, or a hardware feature that simply doesn't exist. You can use the regular XP drivers for that hardware. In general, however, new drivers can't add functionality that didn't already exist in the graphics card.
