    What kind of computer are you using?

    Windows or Macintosh?

    Desktop or laptop?

    If it is a windows machine, do you have input for a microphone? It may be a small red or pink connector.

You need a Sampler. Either software or Hardware will work. A sampler is the device that will make it possible to play your voice on your keyboard. There are many software samplers available, take a look at websites like sweetwater.com or musiciansfriend.com and have a look at the pc software section. You will also need a MIDI connection for your computer to enable the keyboard to talk to your computer (runs around 50 bucks). I would look at a program like Sampletank or others.

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).

HOW DO I RECORD MY VOICE ON THE CTK-900 CASIO KEYBOARD?


Not according to the manual. It was not made that simple.

However, there are a few ways you can produce a recording of the music with your voice. Either mixing with the PC or Mac sound program, or using the output of the keyboard into a suitable mixer with preamp so you can get your levels correct- then record the output of the mixer to computer, or to tape.

Audacity is a wonderful little Sourceforge program to consider using along with the suite of programs and widgets Casio includes with the 900.

How can I send recordings to my laptop? I have a usb connector and i want to connect my portable grand to my laptop but the laptop does not detect the piano and i don't know what to press on the piano...


Hi mjaynneb,

I could be wrong here but I have a number of keyboards and the USB connection is usually for Midi control from software like Cubase and the like. If by recording you mean recording Audio then I think you'll find that it won't be possible using the USB port.

Midi is great and I use it a lot. It enables you to arrange music using your computer. Also you can record the music you play on the Keyboard on the computer as Midi. This means that the computer can play back through your arranger what you just played. Bear in mind though that Midi is purely numbers that represent notes, velocities and note duration so is not actually audio.

My keyboards have the ability to record to SD card or a Hard Drive, however if this is not a feature of your arranger then probably your best bet for recording audio from it is by using the Audio out ports of your arranger and using a connecting lead to a good low noise sound card on your computer. As you are using a laptop you can find external usb sound cards/interfaces so that should do fine. Then you could probably use something like Audacity which is free software, to record to a wav file.

I hope this helped.
Kind Regards

I want to transfer some midi files to my Casio LK-230 keyboard. When I plug in the usb cable it does recognize the casio unit but it does not show up on my computer...like there is not unit... How do...


The keyboard will NOT show up on MY COMPUTER as it does not have memory to record and save MIDI files... It will PLAY them real time as the computer sends the data to the keyboard. You can't transfer and save the files IN the keyboard. Some higher level keyboards do have memory and even hard drives... this one does not. This one will have some built in,that you can play but even those you cannot access as if they were memory.
With the USB cable connected, you should be able to see the device listed in the device manager section of the control panel under system hardware.

How do i record drums from drum kit


Hello nastyneph320:
Computer connectivity (via USB, Ethernet or the FW16E FireWire option) and DAW integration features like 8 zone Master mode, DAW remote control and cross platform editors let you seamlessly integrate the Motif with any DAW software, including the bundled Cubase AI software.

Translated it means that you can use USB, Ethernet, or FireWire connection to your PC and use DAW or Cubase AI software for recording. But I'm pretty sure you could use some other type of software for recording as long as it accepts your Keyboard.

Don't forget to vote with a thumbs up if this helped.

How can I save my recorded track in CASIO CTK 810 IN for future use. I can record one performance but cannot save it for ever, if I record another one track the previous one is got deleted. Is there any...


Recording a new tune automatically deletes the previous one.
Solution transfer the recorded song to your computer via USB cable.
It is also possible to store up to 5 additional tunes in the song bank

I am trying to record sounds from my keyboard into my MPC 1000. I have what I think is the proper set-up. MIDI sync...softthru as track...etc. Problem is when I set it up I can play one sound and record...


It is not clear whether you are recording audio or MIDI. If you recorded Audio samples, you will get the same sounds back even if you change the voice on the keyboard.

If you record a MIDI sequence, and then play it back you will STILL get the same sounds UNLESS you also record the MIDI voice or patch changes so the voice is changed as it occured when you recorded it. Usually there are options taht you can enable or disable voice changes.

I want to record vocal voice trhought mic on psr 9000


You could record short "samples" to be used in building new voices, however, it does NOT appear that you can record a vocal song with the PSR9000. The Tyros II and III have the capability to record vocals but the PSR9000 and Tyros I do not..

When playing back an arrangement, you can re-sing the song and have the vocal harmonizer track the arrangement.

Recording on my Yamaha CP33 keyboard using USB


We're talking about audio recording. If so you must conntect your piano by using the L + R outputs with your sound card or mixer line inputs (that's how I do this). USB is ok if you want to use your piano as a master keyboard (MIDI). Another important thing is that you must have an additional application installed called sequencer ( for example Cubase Sx, Sonar...) which will let you store your digital music. I'm not talking about the proper settings of them because it could take a day or so...:)
Overall, you will have to learn a bit about the home studio, home recording techniques. There are tons of informations on web. A great thing is that you can use your CP33 as a master keyboard to control additional virtual instruments (VST) or for example play different piano samples (check Synthogy Ivory). Possibilites are endless!
