Question about Abit NF-M2SV Socket AM2/ MCP61S/ DDR2-800/ A&V&L/ MATX Motherboard

1 Answer

Midi Driver I am trying to connect my Yamaha keyboard to the PC and record sound, I am running windows XP with Cakewalk Pro Software and connect to the yamaha keyboard to the PC via a USB cable. On my old PC when I had the same setup (older motherboard though) when you press a key on the Yamaha keyboard a symbol would flash red in the menu bottom right of the screen. Now although the symobol is there it just stays 'grey'. I checked Device Manager and was expecting to see a midi driver, bu there is not one listed, I am assuming that this is my problem. Can I get a new midi driver anywhere ? Thanks in anticipation

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.

Hello, I have the MIDI kit and it is pluged in, how do I get the music to the keyboard or keyboard music to the computer? I want to recoard some music for singing, please help. Thank you, Princess


In Device Manager (I am assuming you are using Windows XP) you will find your MIDI devices under Sound, Video and Game controllers. It is possible that the MIDI port has not been enabled in BIOS, I have had some PCs where this had to be done first. If Fruity Loops doesn't give you any available MIDI port to use it does not sound as though the PC knows it's there or has installed the driver properly. Start in Device Manager - if there's no MIDI port there or it's not working for some reason you'll have to fix that first.

I am trying to install yamaha usb-midi driver software on my laptop powered by windows vista. getting this error 25001 (no device connected message). help please


I know this sounds weird, but make sure you connect the MIDI-OUT cable to the MINI-IN port on the keyboard, and the MIDI-IN cable to the MIDI-OUT port. Backwards and illogical, but there it is.. I had the same problem; now it works flawlessly.

MY MIDI NOR SIGMA TEL HAS SOUND OUTPUT


Signma Tel is notoriously bad for recording. It often doesn't work. But try changing your driver mode and then running the wave profiler. restart everything and make sure that your sound card is chosen under playback timing master and recordi timing master so that it is the chosen card. UNLESS- the keyboard has it's own sound card or interface built in, then its a different thing. You'll have to find out what kind of drivers THAT card uses and do same thing choosing that as card with correct drivers. Also check MIDI devices and make sure its in there. U might wanna email tech cuz this is a little more complicated than a regular set up

Midi vs. Sound


Think of MIDI like the old time player pianos where you put a roll into it and the punches on the paper roll told the piano what notes to play. MIDI is a way for computers and musical instruments to communicate what is being played. When you plug your keyboard into your computer and enable it in Cakewalk, then Cakewalk records what notes you are playing on your keyboard (makes a piano roll file). Then when you tell Cakewalk to play this file back it communicates to your keyboard and says play these notes just like a person was sitting there playing these notes. The distinction here is you are recording and playing back your performance (which keys you pressed, how hard you struck the keys, how long you held the keys for sustain, etc...). No sound is actually being recorded, just the PERFORMANCE. When you play it back, the keyboard regenerates the sounds on the fly just as if you were actually sitting there performing the music again. Same thing applies to other MIDI enabled instruments (drums, guitar, saxaphone, etc...). This opens up all kinds of possibilities, you can redirect the recorded MIDI file to a completely different sound or instrument. Example... you record MIDI of you playing piano song, then you have Cakewalk play this MIDI back to your keyboard but you change the sound on your keyboard to guitar, it will play the same song, but now you will hear guitar instead of piano. Get it?

Cakewalk software: Midi vs. Sound


You can get a music keyboard for around $200 and up.

Or use it as is, with your computer keyboard. There should be a printable template on the disk, if not in the package.

Yamaha 61 key keyboard midi usb connected but what next


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
