Yamaha 61 key keyboard midi usb connected but what next
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

Download USB MIDI driver for yamaha from yamaha website,and install to laptop.
Make sure the POWER switch on the instrument is set to OFF,then use an AB type USB cable to connect the instrument to the laptop.
After making the connections, turn on the power of the instrument.
Laptop will immediately notify that new hardwares is connecting and automatically install the drivers. Wait until the process is finish.
Thats all. In Ableton,the setting MIDI input must be set to USB MIDI.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
You can connect it with USB connection to your computer. It should be plug and play, but some drivers might be required.
You can connect it also via MIDI interface:
- you will need sound-card with MIDI input connector, or you can use special MIDI device like M-Audio UNO.
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.
we should have a mic pin and audio cable as shown in this pic
connect these cables,and connect big pin to the piano and small pin to the computer (mic or input jack)
now take windows movie maker (start-all programs-windows movie maker). click on narrate timeline (as a mic icon below windows movie maker).
now click start narration on the pc and play your song on the piano. you can see input level highlights. now your song is recording. when your song completes click stop narration and save to the pc. walah if you can't understand this say to me. i can add video. sry for my worst english
