    Hi,

    I think i haven't written properly what was my problem, so I'll try again.

    What i need is infromation about what the pins on the miniDIN 6 port on
    the card are for (which is for ground and which are for in/out signals)

    I couldn't find that kind of information in any audio store nearby.



    Regards, Adam K.

I'm quite confident it goes like this (probed it recently in case I lose it) :

PS/2 pin 1 - MIDI IN pin 2 (ground)
PS/2 pin 3 - MIDI IN pin 4 (signal)
PS/2 pin 2 - MIDI OUT pin 2 (ground)
PS/2 pin 4 - MIDI OUT pin 4 (signal)

Am awaiting delivery of an AS full size silver keyboard from Argos. I need to get the right midi lead to connect to my computer. Is it a standard DIN socket?


OFTEN the keyboards come with the required cable. Some require only a A/B USB cable. If it uses the 5 pin MIDI type cable, you will need a USB to MIDI external adapter for your computer.

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!!!

Hello I own an mpk 49 keyboard now I'm new at this and I can't figure out if it's internal or external sound the mpk49 gives off. Long story short how do I get the sound out of the keyboard do I have to...


You could look in the manual on Page 5 for connections to external equipment...

Connect a USB cable from your computer to the MPK49. The unit will be powered through the USB connection. Alternatively, if you do not wish to use a computer in your setup or if you wish
to power the MPK49 externally, please plug in a 6V-1A DC power adapter.
2. If you would like to use an external sound module, connect a 5-pin MIDI cable from the MIDI OUT of the MPK49 to the MIDI IN of the external device.
3. If you would like to use another MIDI controller in your setup, connect a 5-pin MIDI cable from the MIDI OUT of the controller to the MIDI IN of the MPK49.

On Page 13 the first of the FAQ's is:
Question: Does the MPK49 have internal sounds?
Answer: No. The MPK49 is a MIDI-controller, which means that it does not contain any sounds inside but is instead used
to control external sound devices, such as hardware and software synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines.

If you lack the manual you can go to retrevo.com and download it for free after you register.

Motherboard Pinout - Please Help


here are some sites that may help you.
all these should be marked power switch may say pw,prs,ps, power led may say pld, pl,led, hhd say hd, reset switch maysay rs, set, these connection will be grouped together, and pin layout 1 red or hot wire, or the main wire for the device you are trying to operate.
www.motherboards.org
www.tomshardware.com
www.twinight.org/chipdir/
www.anandtech.com

the connections to the back plate is standard the amount of pins match up the cable, the number 1 pin will be marked some how and or the cable will only be able to plug in one way.
with an exception if you are using serial connector and we hardly use them. the rules are the same as above, and plug ins maybe one way also.

the ribbon type will have a marking on the cable or ribbin line or dots or hasshs marks that is pin #1
match with pin out on motherboard pin1 or pin 0,

Tascam 144 sony acid pro 6 no sound from midi track


It sounds like you may be confused on what the MIDI part actually does. MIDI records your performance, not your sound. Then you assign and play back the recorded performance to either a virtual instrument (in which case you should here sound from your computer) or to a real physical MIDI capable instrument (in which case you would here the sound coming from that real instrument instead of the computer).
The ends of the MIDI cables themselves are identical, not IN or OUT.

I have a triton LE Korg workstation. I have the MIDI interface cables from Yamaha. I would like to record straight to my computer using these cables. Is this possible?


Hi

Yes it is possible if you have a MIDI breakout lead. This lead plugs into the game port on the back of your sound card(if you have one) If you do not have a game port, then you will need a midi interface that can be plugged into your PC via USB port. USB Midi interfaces can be bought from most music shops.

What does the lead that you have look like? If it has a 180 deg 5 pin DIN plug at each end then you have a standard midi connection cable. Useful only for plugging into the MIDI interface I just mentioned. If you have any questions about this,I am happy to help you out. A "FixYa" rating would be great for my advice and future efforts to help you resolve this:)
