When you are using midi the sounds from your keyboard aren't sent anywhere. What happens is control messages are sent over the midi cable from midi out to midi in on the other device which must have midi sounds on it (in your case the sound card) to make any sounds. The messages can be things like note on/of or pitch bend etc. If you want to send messages to produce a result on your laptop and still here something you can loop the messages by running from midi out on the device end ( your laptop) back to midi in on your keyboard. A much better explanation is available here:http://www.indiana.edu/~emusic/etext/MIDI/chapter3_MIDI.shtml I also signed up to this site (its free) that has great people and lots of info:http://www.recordingreview.com/ I recommend downloading Killer Home Recording setting up which at this time is also free and has the best advice you could want in it. I'd also recommend checking out Reaper which is comparable to Reason, Cubase or Protools. If this helps please let me know.

You have to install the MIDI type software in the PC to trigger the sound card's voices. You may also need a driver for the keyboard. Search the Casio site for downloads pertaining to your keyboard.

Check the midi channel. It needs to sync to FL Studio. Channel settings you'll need to look up in the privia manual...can be laborious - but worth it in the end :)

My oxygen 49 3rd generation (m-audio) midi keyboard just stopped working for me. Ive tried changing the usb lead, and I've tried it on a different computer, and it still doesn't work. I have a macbook pro,...


If the keyboard is lighting up, there is a 90% chance the problem is in the software in your MAC.

Hint: Software "breaks" easier than the hardware !!!

Re-install your software as a first step.

Fruity loops old version with casio keyboard


You haven't said whether or not you are using a demo ,version of FL. If you purchased they have Lifetime Free Updates here:http://flstudio.image-line.com/documents/lifetimefreeupdates.html If you didn't purchase, try downloading the newest demo version here:http://flstudio.image-line.com/documents/download.html Some features of demo programs become disabled after a certain time period. I don't know if midi device recognition is one of them for this program. Try hooking your keyboard up first, making sure that you have the correct drivers for the keyboard, your USB adapter etc. Then start FL and see if the program lists your keyboard in the midi device list.

Can't get Casio CTK 601 / 611 to function as MIDI Contrller


I'm not at home right now where all my manuals are so I'll try to explain with out. You will have to set it so that the keyboard is the slave device. Try setting it to Omni receive. It has to be able to listen for all midi channels at once. You have to write a sequence on your computer and hook it to your keyboard by using midi out on the computer to midi in on the keyboard in order for you to use the computer as a controller. If you need the keyboard to create the sequences then you have to hook the midi send on the keyboard to the midi in on the computer play/enter your notes into individual tracks in your software then assign channels, voices etc to each track and save the sequence. Then when you hook it up the other way the sequence will play just like an audio recording except the sound w2on't be there. What you have recorded by creating a sequence is a series of midi messages that the keyboard will receive if you have it set properly and hooked up ptroperly which it will translate into sound. This is a minimalist explanation at best. You will have to have a better understanding of not only your keyboard but also your software and midi in general. There are some pretty amazing things you can do with midi. For instance if you have a lighting controller that is midi capable you can i,mbed all the lighting scene changes for your song in order on one track. You can also control your guitar effects pedal to change effects automatically while your playing. Once you get a handle on it you are only limited by your imagination and your budget. Hope this helps in some way.
