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)

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: i am trying to install yamaha usb-midi driver

I know this sounds weird, but make sure you connect the MIDI-OUT cable to the MINI-IN port on the keyboard, and the MIDI-IN cable to the MIDI-OUT port. Backwards and illogical, but there it is.. I had the same problem; now it works flawlessly.

SOURCE: i have yamaha PSR-i425 keyboard.can i conect it

Yes. You will need to have a MIDI interface on your OC and also select in the sounds control panel of windows that you are using the external synth. The MIDI will expect the PSR to respond to the "general MIDI" assignments.

SOURCE: I Have a yamaha dx7 fd with 2 broken keys, they

Open the unit CAREFULLY to avoid damaging cables between top and bottom. Inspect the defective keys. It may either be a broken part on the key OR the silicone rubber key contact carriers that can act as springs. Get repair parts from Yamaha America in California. Find number online and call the "parts department"

I get random unwanted midi notes triggering while I plug my dd-55 into my emu x-midi 2x2 with my Reaper DAW. I don't know if this is a problem with the emu or the dd-55 itself, but it doesn't...


Check that you don't have MIDI echo on in the DAW. If the MIDI data is echoed, it MAY be merging with the outgoing and when MIDI signals are merged in pieces instead of whole messages the data is corrupted. If you can look at the data stream with software, you should be able to spot the problem. Another problem might be excessive latency of the recording software. Make sure you do not have antivirus or antispyware programs running or network running. The Roland will spill data at much less rate and while the dd55 may overrun the DAW the Roland might not be able to. The key to the problem is to analyze the MIDI data stream that is being recorded.

I'm trying to use the pads of my Yamaha DTXplorer drum kit as triggers for the sounds stored on my Alesis SR-18 drum machine. I have seen that Alesis markets a trigger module of their own which they...


you need to determine what midi note the DTXplorer is using for the snare, kick and 3rd tom, and set the SR-18 accordingly, or vica-versa. the midi notes for each instrument has to be the same.

if you cannot change the midi note in either unit to make them correspond, you can download a "midi mapper" program (i think e-drum might be one), there is freeware available if you search CNet. with a midi mapper program, you would have to get a midi/usb adapter for your computer and rouite the midi signal through a computer. midi mapping software allows you to change the midi note, when the hardware itself is incapable of doing so.

I have the yamaha dtexpress and a midifase conect but cant get anny sound to the computer??????????????


try a midi loopback device or a viruual midi cable such as sonys virtual midi cable: http://www.johnrofrano.com/tutorials/virtualmidirouter.htm

i dont know if this one will work, you could also search for loopb1 and hubi's midi loopback device, one of these should work.

what you have to do is use one of these programs, or something similar, to connect your midi input to the soundcard's midi wavetable or to your midi/synth/sequencing software's midi input.

also, the drum machine should be set to output to midi channel 10. make sure that your software is set to recieve on midi channel 10, if applicable.

I have PSR-i425 Keyboard from Yamaha. I stored the music piece played by my in the keyboard memory. After that I downloaded the stored file to my PC The file is in this format: 06PK61.BUP. Kindly tell me...


The BUP is an archiving format proprietary to the Yamaha apparently containg styles as well as note data and conversion is really not easy.

If you can get the instrument itself to spill out MIDI and use a MIDI interface and software to capture it on the PC is the best plan.

Once it is in SMF format you can play it on the PC.

Does it have the option to load other sounds in it?


Here is the manual if you don't have it:http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/emi/english/ssdrums/dtxp4_en_om_d0.pdf The set comes with 427 drum/percussion voices and 22 keyboard voices. If you use a midi cable plugged into the midi out on the sound module you can control other midi sound modules and midi devices by plugging into the midi in on them. Page 30 of the manual describes some of the parameters. If this helps please let me know.

ALWAYS to answer your question, refer to the "MIDI IMPLEMENTATION CHART" for your MIDI instrument.

This chart can be found USUALLY near the end of your user's manual.

This chart, among other things, will tell what can be transmitted and received by the MIDI device.

Refering to the chart for your DX21 it shows that the DX21 can both receive and transmit program changes.

If you don't have a user manual, download one here:

I want to connect my YAMAHA DTXPRESS IV SPECIAL to my PC


Any pro-audio interface with a midi input would do the trick. There are numerous products out there that offer this. You can get a simple usb midi interface, and connect the Yamaha up with a midi cable running from the midi out of the drum module to the nidi in of the interface.

one of the simpler ones:...
