Yamaha 61 key keyboard midi usb connected but what next

Hi

I tuned off power and connected the midi usb cable to the Yamaha 61 key keyboard and then to my PC - what do I do next?

I switched on RecordPad as I thought it would work the same as when I speak or sing into the microphone - RecordPad did not record the music from the keyboard. Do I need to get some sort of software to transmit from keyboard to PC

Hope you can help
Many thanks
Jaya

Depending on what you want to do...

If it's only music Mixing, you will have to plug your keyboard via audio jack to the line in of your computer. Then Audacity (free soft) can do the job.

If you want to edit midi file with your keybord you will need midi editor software like Linux-Rosegarden or if under windows try LMMS (all free soft of course).

Good luck

Why are the Keys on my axiom pro 61 not sending MIDI messages?


Does your keyboard have a "MIDI OUT" port? If yes, then
there is a selection to choose between USB or MIDI OUT port.
For my M-AUDIO oxygen 61 (silver), I must press the [Advanced] button then Note F3 on the music keys manual to toggle the MIDI-OUT.
If set to INT, it will not sent via USB. If set to USB it will not send via MIDI-OUT port. To use MIDI-OUT port I need external 12V DC adapter.

How do I fix my Loose USB port on a midi keyboard?


If the port is still intact then it might just need to be resoldered. USB ports however to get strained and basically fall apart. Purchase another and solder it to the board. If you are not confident about doing this take it to your local Yamaha service centre.

Which midi cable or USB midi cable should I use for Yamaha DGX 520 model.


It doesn't use a USB to MIDI adapter (such as the UX-16.) It has an onboard MIDI controller and uses a standard USB A-B cable. You just need to install the driver from the CD-ROM or here, and plug it in. You can get the manual from the same page or here. Setup is on page 99.

While using korg m50 editor using usb data cable there is no sound from my lap.the sound is only from my head phone connected to my keyboard directly?


Are you connecting to the laptop and using it as a midi controller? You can record midi notes from the keyboard and send them to your laptop via USB using any midi sequencer program (reason, logic, etc). Create a midi track, select the input of that track as your keyboard, then hit record to play some midi notes. To hear what you record, you have to set the output of the midi track to whatever midi sounds or instrunents you have installed on your laptop.

If you are trying to record the actual audio sound the keyboard makes, use an audio program such as cubase, sonar, audacity, pro-tools, and either mic the keyboard, or connect one of the other audio outputs (1/4" TRS) to an audio input on your DAW, and record an audio track that way (as opposed to a midi track).

I cant connect my yamaha ypt 320 to my pc using the midi


Assuming you have a MIDI interface on your computer, you need to connect the MIDI cables between the keyboard and the PC. You cross connect, that is, in to out and vice versa. You will ALSO need the driver software for the interface in the PC AND most importantly, some software in the PC to handle the MIDI for instance to record.

I have yamaha PSR-i425 keyboard.can i conect it with my pc to play midi files stored in computer memory?


Yes. You will need to have a MIDI interface on your OC and also select in the sounds control panel of windows that you are using the external synth. The MIDI will expect the PSR to respond to the "general MIDI" assignments.
