Finale 2008 MIDI Set up

I am having a devil of a time getting my MIDI set up properly for Finale 2008. true, I am a neophyte and need help. So, here I am. Help me Obi-Wan, you are my only hope!

Here's what's up:

1. I am using a Korg K61 MIDI Controller Keyboard. I have installed the drivers.

2. I am using an Edirol SD-20 Studio Canvas Sound Module. I have installed the drivers for Mac OSX.

3. I am using a Mac Book laptop computer.

I would like to be able to use the K61 to enter Finale in Speedy Entry, and then access the sounds on the Edirol SD-20 in studio view or in the Instrument List window so that I can assign sounds and hear them.

I would like to get to work on many projects that are lined up and calling my name. Please talk me through this so that I can get going.

Thanks so much for your help!

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO SET UP MY ROLAND JUNO D WITH MY AKAI MPC 1000, PARTICULARLY HOW TO SET UP THE MIDI ON THE ROLAND.


Simple way is MIDI out from Juno to MIDI in on MPC, then (depending on how you want to work), connect MIDI out from MPC to the in on the Juno. If you do this you MUST turn local control off on the Juno or else you'll get double triggers (internal + msg in from MPC). Now to record sequences on MPC , set MIDI to as track in setup window (on the 2500, this is accessed by pressing MODE then pad 9, then press button under the corresponding tab [on LCD]) then set your MIDI channel by port, meaning if your MIDI cable is physically connected to out A, in your LCD in bottom right corner it will show as follows: 1A. This indicates you are transmitting on MIDI channel 1; port A. Remember, MIDI IS NOT AUDIO!!!!! Since the Juno is a synth and not a workstation, all transport controls are handled by the MPC, that's pretty much it... Hope this helps a little, enjoy!

P.S. Go to mpc-forum.com its THE sh**! They also have links for their e-book I have one for the 2500 and its awesome!!!

I would like to record my songs compositions in the computer system. pls advise which software and accessories to use. i would also like to have the notations for my compositions, which can be changed...


You haven't said what kind of computer you have but I will recommend a program called Audacity which is very good. It is freeware.You will need a stereo cable with plugs that match the line out jacks on your keyboard on one end and an 1/8" stereo plug on the other. The 1/8" should go into the line in jack on your computers sound card. Audacity is available here:http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ That is to get you started. If you want notation software, I would recommend Finale which you will have to purchase for a full version. Their website is here:http://www.finalemusic.com/ They have trial versions available. Here is a link to another program that might be good although I haven't tried the program:http://www.techspot.com/downloads/1831-magicscore-school.html If you want to use a program to record the midi output of your keyboard, you will have to use a midi cable from the midi out on your keyboard to a midi to usb adapter to your computer. That is the easiest way if your sound card has no midi in/ out jacks. Here is a good link to info about all that:http://www.indiana.edu/~emusic/etext/MIDI/chapter3_MIDI.shtml Let me know if this helps.

Recorded midi, output set to dtxpress channel 10 no sounds is gen


You have to discover the receive channel for the dtxpress. Try downloading Midiox which is a freeware app that actively displays everything that is happening midiwise in real time.

Can't get Casio CTK 601 / 611 to function as MIDI Contrller


I'm not at home right now where all my manuals are so I'll try to explain with out. You will have to set it so that the keyboard is the slave device. Try setting it to Omni receive. It has to be able to listen for all midi channels at once. You have to write a sequence on your computer and hook it to your keyboard by using midi out on the computer to midi in on the keyboard in order for you to use the computer as a controller. If you need the keyboard to create the sequences then you have to hook the midi send on the keyboard to the midi in on the computer play/enter your notes into individual tracks in your software then assign channels, voices etc to each track and save the sequence. Then when you hook it up the other way the sequence will play just like an audio recording except the sound w2on't be there. What you have recorded by creating a sequence is a series of midi messages that the keyboard will receive if you have it set properly and hooked up ptroperly which it will translate into sound. This is a minimalist explanation at best. You will have to have a better understanding of not only your keyboard but also your software and midi in general. There are some pretty amazing things you can do with midi. For instance if you have a lighting controller that is midi capable you can i,mbed all the lighting scene changes for your song in order on one track. You can also control your guitar effects pedal to change effects automatically while your playing. Once you get a handle on it you are only limited by your imagination and your budget. Hope this helps in some way.

My MIDI won't play back even when I play the file, no matter which program I use to play it. The computer I use is a Compaq Presario, I have Cakewalk Home Studio 2002 on it, and my sound card is SB X-FI...


The default MIDI setting of your PC may have been set for another MIDI device (for example, if Cakewalk Home Studio has been used with a MIDI compatible keyboard). Go to... Control Panel / Sounds and Audio Devices / Audio / MIDI music playback and change the setting back to your soundcard (and set as default if you prefer).
