In Device Manager (I am assuming you are using Windows XP) you will find your MIDI devices under Sound, Video and Game controllers. It is possible that the MIDI port has not been enabled in BIOS, I have had some PCs where this had to be done first. If Fruity Loops doesn't give you any available MIDI port to use it does not sound as though the PC knows it's there or has installed the driver properly. Start in Device Manager - if there's no MIDI port there or it's not working for some reason you'll have to fix that first.
Signma Tel is notoriously bad for recording. It often doesn't work. But try changing your driver mode and then running the wave profiler. restart everything and make sure that your sound card is chosen under playback timing master and recordi timing master so that it is the chosen card. UNLESS- the keyboard has it's own sound card or interface built in, then its a different thing. You'll have to find out what kind of drivers THAT card uses and do same thing choosing that as card with correct drivers. Also check MIDI devices and make sure its in there. U might wanna email tech cuz this is a little more complicated than a regular set up
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?
Check this out and see if it solves your problem. http://www.yamaha.com/yamahavgn/CDA/KnowledgeBase/KnowledgeBaseDetail/0,,CNTID%25253D10150%252526CTID%25253D,00.html Also, Cakewalk has a forum and here is the hardware section: http://forum.cakewalk.com/tt.asp?forumid=8
you have to check your driver node. Change to MME, run wave profiler and restart application. Also check playback timing master and record timing master and be sure that your sound card is listed under both. That will do it
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
o always run at 0 on play back recording -3 with drums use anlog cables then select anlog 48000 24 bit if u can if its digital cable might use 96000 bit rate ok spdif watch it close on digital for digital clips never go in red keep steady balence cheak your sorse tape how loud is that adjust your stuff to sound good at peaks never hit red in digital mode does this help sum
Certain early models of the Sound Blaster
cannot do both MIDI input and wave (audio) output at the same time. Thus,
if you've selected "Creative Labs" as a MIDI In device in Cakewalk’s
Options | MIDI Devices dialog, wave audio output won't work. Note that
MIDI output will work fine along with wave audio output: you can select
Creative Labs from the list of MIDI Out devices. The problem occurs only
when you've selected the Creative Labs MIDI In device.
