SOURCE: yamaha kx88 keyboard midi controller problem.

Hi there, check over all your MIDI leads also. MIDI is a current operated system and is very prone to misfiring if all connectivity is not A1.

Make sure that you have the correct midi mapping for your Yamaha. There should have been a software program, called a mid map editor (MME), that came with your keyboard. If you are unfamiliar with this, it is used for changing the values that are sent through the midi cable into your computer (for example, you can change the C0 to be C#0, or any other value, including a numeric value instead of a tonal value). If you bought it used there may have been values changed on midi-trigger presets, which would cause this. If you do have the program, use it to at least investigate that all of the values are in the right places. Often times when someone who is unfamiliar with an MME installs it they open it to see what it is. They change things (not realizing they have done that) and then can't figure out why there is a problem.
Also, make sure your midi cable has the same connections as your keyboard. Some brands make very slight variations to avoid patent issues that may make some cables and instruments incompatible. I have two cables that work fine with certain midi controllers, but when switched they both fail. It's good to make sure the plug ports are clean of dust/dirt, too.
If you are familiar with these problems and they are not yours, you may need to get a different cable. Try to borrow one from a friend to see if the cable is the problem before you buy one. If that still doesn't fix it you may have an internal software or hardware issue. Good luck! I hope I could help.

My P85 digital piano have not a good trasmission with midi cable USB, in particular when press the sustain pedal trasmit a note to pc. Thanks


It is IMPORTANT to realize that the SUSTAIN is NOT attached to a note, but is an independent MIDI message. Hence it is up to the external MIDI device to associate the sustain with whatever notes are still active.

How to open 3 demo pieces of Technics SX-PC10 Digital Piano?


Usually you just select which demo BEFORE starting the demo.

If you are meaning to try to DOWNLOAD via MIDI or other those demo pieces that is USUALLY not possible as the pieces are stored in a ROM which is inaccessible via MIDI or USB.

They OFTEN don''t even send them out on the MIDI port when playing them.

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?

Midi keyboard sound quality bad


you are likely running it thru a soft synth. Check the help files there is a section in there on "using soft synths" that will explain it more fully. Plus a usb connection can sometimes be problematic (not always). But the tutorial in the help files will tell u how to use the sounds from the piano instead of the MIDI sounds
