I would expect that to work fine. I have used several USB to Midi adapters with good results.

Do not get MIDI signal via EDIROL UA25




Midi is data only, there is no actual sound to the midi tracks themselves. They need to be assigned to either a software synth or an external synth to actually make the sounds you want to hear.

For instance if you load a demo of a midi sequance you will need to add a software synth such as the TTS-1 or Roland sound canvas which are general midi compatable and will play the instruments sounds assigned to the demo's midi channels. Use the Synth Rack feature in Sonar to open one of them. Then you will need to assign the output of each of the midi tracks to that particular synth and you will get sound. Make sure to assing the synth's audio track to you UA-25 as its audio output.

I would suggest reading in the manual and following the tutorials included in the manual to get yourself familier with how this is all done. spacer.gif

How do i connect a mac to a Yamaha DGX 650 Portable Grand


For your reference, a list of downloads for this instrument may be found here: Downloads for DGX 650 Digital Piano

It has a standards-based MIDI-USB interface, so no additional driver is required. If your computer does not detect the device, the cause is almost always a bad physical connection, ie faulty USB cable or dirty contacts at the physical port.

Apple's "Audio MIDI Setup.app" can be launched to configure how the device interacts with the computer while they are connected. Most DAW and music publishing applications provide preference panes and additional settings .

Casiotone ct630


I haven't been able to find documentation to be sure if the CT-630 has MIDI ports on it (my guess is no, but please check). If it does, you can get something like the Yamaha UX16 USB MIDI Interface cable to connect the keyboard to a PC.
If not, sorry, it seems the only thing you could do is record the audio output.

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'm having problem connecting my Casio Keyboard with my Edirol MIDI Interface, I can't get a connection and the lights on my interface will not go on. Please any suggestions will help.


You have to have the driver for the interface installed CORRECTELY. Make sure you followed directions as sometimes you have to have device p;lugged in while installing and sometime not.

Then you will need the user software in your machine to talk to the interface as well... The interface PROBABLY must be directely connected to your machine, not through a USB hub.
