LAPTOP/KEYBOARD MIDI (NON) CONNECTION: I have a Williams Allegro keyboard and am learning to play it with Emedia Piano and Keyboard Method. My laptop with this software is connected to the Allegro via MIDI input/output cables. However, the laptop says the "device is not connected" even when it is, and suggests I "replace the device," not really a feasible option. Surely there is a way to troubleshoot the problem and get the laptop abd the keyboard to communicate better via MIDI. Any ideas?

Assuming this has worked in the past (otherwise if you have changed to different pedal that is the problem) the usual thing is the machine samples the state of the pedal at power up and assumes the polarity of the pedal is at rest. Make sure you are not pressing it as you power up. Also verify the pedal is COMPLETELY plugged in... sometimes they are not quite fully in and that causes a problem, especially with the two stage versions that are sometimes used.

Pianos do NOT respond to keys pressed hard... they respond to FAST presses. If you have an issue with the piano, first go on record to activate your warranty. Most of these electronics DO have a setting that adjusts the "feel" which affects the loudness versus key velocity... Now here is a secret??? Shh... The manufacturers turn up the demos just like the advertisers turn up the commercials on the TV... I would suggest looking for the adjustment of feel, and if that doesn't get satisfactory results, find another and compare yours to another... if yours is still underperforming, exercise your warranty for repair or replacement.

Hi Kyle:
Have a look at your manual.
Sometimes you'll find that there will be an "input" setting required.

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

My Williams Allegro 88 keyboard sustain pedal is doing the opposite of sustaining. I lost the manual so I also don't know how to reset it and if this will fix the problem.

I want to use my sd card to put my own songs and when i change the song from an MP3 to MIDI file using the program WIDI 3.3 Pro. When i put the MIDI file which is the song, into the Sd card and then into...


You need to understand what the program is doing.
An MP3 file is a recorded music performance like a phonograph record. A MIDI file is a set of instructions for performing music, like sheet music. The converter program is an attempt to turn the record into sheet music. There is no perfect way to do that. You should have gotten something out of the program, though. It sounds more like a computer problem. Try a very simple sound file, convert it to MIDI, and see if you can get something out. If your keyboard can't read it, try putting any known good MIDI file on the card and read that. Possibly your keyboard will only read certain formats or sizes or speeds of cards. See if the manual tells you anything. It might read FAT16 regular speed cards under 1 GB, for instance, and balk at a SDHC 16 GB NTFS formatted card. So, do some detective work.

Here is a link:http://www.williamspianos.com/products/encore.cfm If you don't have one, download the manual. If it still doesn't play correctly with the pedal connected according to the manual you will have to contact them to see about servicing. The information is also at that link.

Recording on my Yamaha CP33 keyboard using USB


We're talking about audio recording. If so you must conntect your piano by using the L + R outputs with your sound card or mixer line inputs (that's how I do this). USB is ok if you want to use your piano as a master keyboard (MIDI). Another important thing is that you must have an additional application installed called sequencer ( for example Cubase Sx, Sonar...) which will let you store your digital music. I'm not talking about the proper settings of them because it could take a day or so...:)
Overall, you will have to learn a bit about the home studio, home recording techniques. There are tons of informations on web. A great thing is that you can use your CP33 as a master keyboard to control additional virtual instruments (VST) or for example play different piano samples (check Synthogy Ivory). Possibilites are endless!
