Question about M-Audio Session KeyStudio USB Keyboard

1 Answer

Everything sounds chopped and screwed

When I import an instrumental into sessioins, it will pop up on the track, but when I play it, it becomes either real distorted, staticky, it sounds "chopped and screwed", it cuts in and out,pretty much anything you can think of and then it becomes normal. It does all this either during playback and /or while recording. When I export the finished song into Windows Media Player to burn, it sometimes comes out on CD decent. It's real frusterating.

I had the same problem when I first got the program. I found that the program makes you use the provided USB adapter for both recording and playback.  Now, in order to let the program know that it is plugged in for playback(in your case,)  when the program starts, select the option for ASIO and select the one with the USB in the drop  down menu.  If the program starts without it, then go to options, audio hardware, and then this will pop up following one of the selections.  Now, mess around with some of the options in the ASIO settings(like I did) and eventually the lag will not be so bad, if that is your problem, I'm not next to you, so I can't help that much, but I hoped I helped a little.

MIDI Basics


MIDI is the language used by electronic instruments to tell each other what to play. When you press a key on a musical keyboard this keyboard will send a MIDI message to a computer or a musical instrument connected. The message says something like: start playing this note at this volume. When you stop pressing the key a new message is sent which says: stop playing this note.
MIDI messages can be transmitted using MIDI cables or USB. Old instruments had MIDI ports (round with five connectors inside) so a computer had to have a MIDI interface. Nowadays it's almost all done with usb.
The important thing to remember is that a MIDI message (and a MIDI cable) are just an instruction to play, they don't contain sound. The sound you hear when you press a key comes from the computer or the instrument connected to the keyboard, not from the plastic key you have pressed.
There is a lot more to say, but I would suggest you check wikipedia first and then come back with more specific questions.

Hi i can't get my m-audio oxygen 8 minni key bord to make sound when i plug it in to my proo tools 8 m-powered essential can you please explain to me how it works


Oxygen 8 is a MIDI keyboard only.It does not produce any sound of it's own.
It opperates with instrument software that either plays as a standalone(a self contained program)or as a virtual instrument(VST,DXi)in a Digital Audio Workstaion(DAW).Sonar,Cubase,and Ableton are examples of DAWs.

My bathroom drawer used to stay closed, but with pulling by my toddler, it now slides open on its own. How can I adjust or tighten to make it stay closed?


the track rails appear to have come loose. Remove the drawer place a level on the track rail and tighten or reinstall the screws which held it in place. There will be one set of screws for single track drawers or one on each side of a two rail drawer.

No sound in my yamaha clavinova cvp 85a electric piano


Ok i hear ya my mother had a clavanova one and i really wonder why the people dont service them at the home. I would check to see if they have a service person within days travel and evaluate the cost. I would way it between the effort to move it and the cost for their visit.the electronics on the keyboard are very complex and i would hate advising someone to do more damage.

Kitchen drawer glide jumps off track


There should be stopers at the end of the track to prevent it from becoming overextended. In the last desk that I assembled I think they looked like little pegs that were placed at the front part of the track.

Sounds like your keyboard is sticking

Unplug the keyboard and do the following

Look on the bottom you should see some screws, remove the screws and leaving the keys facing down, pop the two pieces apart.

Leaving the electronics aside you can now continue with the following instructions
Ok, once you have the two pieces, all of the keys should stay in there proper place, take and soak that in the sink with some soap and water.
Moving all the keys to get the water to flow through.
Then dry off the Keyboard and vacuum all the excess water off, then replace and screw back together, you should be good to go.

I wouldn't recommend a dishwasher, this could get to hot and melt the keys

To work around this problem, turn off the Enhance pointer precision feature: 1. Click Start, click Run, type control mouse, and then click OK. 2. Click the Pointer Options tab, click to clear the Enhance pointer precision check box, and then click OK.
Also see this article from Logitech.

The surface on which you use the mouse plays an important role in its tracking. The optical sensor must use the pattern on the surface to track the position of the cursor. Therefore, using the mouse on a glass or otherwise see-through surface will inhibit the ability of the sensor to track the cursor. Also, if you are using the mouse on a reflective surface, such as a mirror or shiny metal desk, you may experience tracking problems. In both these situations, try using the mouse on a mouse pad or piece of paper. By using the mouse on a white sheet of paper, you can also conserve battery life. Other surfaces that have been known to cause tracking problems are:
  • Some wood grains
  • Grooved surfaces
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
