Cant hear USB Keyboard through sonar

I have a small Korg K25 Midi studio controller. When it is plugged into my computer I am Able to hear it. When I open Sonar and set it to a channel I can see the levels moving up and down from me hitting the keys, but there is no sound when the program is open. when I record with the keyboard Lines or notes show up where it is to be recorded but when i playback, no sound occurs. (all volumes are up) I have also inserted many soft-sythns and set the channel i'm usings input to USB sudio Device OMNI and the output to the Synth that I had Imported. I've also tried using other outputs and inputs and that does seem to make a difference. I also use a USB M-Audio device where I plug guitars and microphones etc. into and I have no problem using that. If you could share any advice with me, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks you, JV

SOURCE: Sonar 6 Producer - palyback quality issue

I had this problem today whilst installing Sonar on my new laptop. It wasn't the click track. It was the playback glitching, clicking and rattling. I put the buffer size to maximium but it was still happening.

I got round it by downloading the latest version of ASIO4all (2.9 beta4) and installing it. I then opened Sonar 6, options, audio, advanced, then selecting ASIO in the driver mode drop down box. Then I closed Sonar and reopened it.

If you use one device for recording and playback it should work now but if like me you use seperate devices or if it doesn't work click, options, audio, general, ASIO panel, advanced options. Here you can select your inputs and outputs. Play around a bit here. Mine worked when the output of the playback device was selected and both the input and output of the recording device was selected.

ASIO4all sorted out my latency issues as well.

Hope it helped.

Sounds like what is called a latency problem. You need to go into the settings in Sonar and under audio, adjust the Latency to a higher number...I don't know sonar home studio, or I would tell you the exact area to go in the menu's to adjust latency..Hope this helps!

SOURCE: sonar 4 and midi sound cuts offat start of playback

If you are recording from bar 1 at time 1.00 you might want to start recording one or two bars later. So try starting your song on bar three istead of bar 1

MD-1700 keyboard. How do I connect it via the USB port on the computer?


MIDI(Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a standard data transfer system used exclusively for instrumentation. A side from amps 7 recording equipment many PCs, laptop & TVs have MIDI access built into them. If they can interface with a UBS connection it is more likely the exception rather than the standard. Below is a link to the users manual for your keyboard. Start reading on page 39.

How to connect a MIDI keyboard to computer


There are quite a few ways to do this.The simplest way is to just use the USB port on the keyboard and run that into the computer. If your keyboard has a USB, then you dont need the midi to connect to a computer. You would still use the midi however for other sound modules and items that do have a midi in port however. If you dont have a midi in then you need to get hardware that does as a computer will not have a midi in. There are basic adapters that you can get that just have a midi connector to usb adapter. There are external sound card devices that will do this like the tascam 144. There are also simple devices made my midiman such as the 2x2 midisport that allows you to connect up to 2 midi devices to a computer. The cheapest quickest method if you are just starting out is the midi to usb cable though. Places like walmart, best buy, and radio shack will generally have these. However with making digital music the cheapest is not generally ideal but will get you by in the meantime.If you ever plan on recording audio like vocals or guitar then I would recommend just getting something like the Tascam 144 MK II as it will allow you to input midi, spdif, vocals with phantom power, guitar line in, through it with 24/94 bit conversion, audio drivers, and a bit of software for simple settings configuration. This would be more of an intermediate interface. If you want some pro solutions, then I would recommend going to the pro's at a musician store and talking to them.

Korg triton studio Change voltage input from 110v to 220v


Safest thing is to use a transformer. If it is only 35 watts, that is pretty small.

Often you can find a small "control transformer" that has dual primaries for 120/240 volts.

Connect it as an "Autoformer". In this connection you would only need one thaat would handle half the 35 watts... However, the smallest is probably 5 watts giving lots of capabilty. Google "autoformer" to see how to connect it. Essentially the primaries go in series and you take you 110 from one-half this combination.

The secondary of a control transformer used this way would NOT be used but just taped for insulation.

You might contact a heat and ventilation company as they may have one... even one that was removed for very low cost.

Still dont get it


Hi Mark.

Siorry, but because of a fault with the system I am not able to reach you on the other thread.

Normalizing tracks means leveling volume settings for a group of tracks or samples to mix or combine them together without troubles like the ones you got.

to normalise tracks you can use the function built in on the Korg studio, see normalize in the software help.

When operating on MIDIs also remember that MIDIs are recorded on different channel (example drums, guitar bass guitar).eg:bTd Aerosmith MIDI archive
When you use them on a sequencer, and you operate on the volume, ensure

Triton Le


when you are setting your midi track on the mpc are you changing to 2A-Device02 for the 2nd track? 3A-Device02 would be the 3rd track and so on. Let me know if that helps. you should make a new track for each instrument you record from the triton to the mpc, helps when dumping.

Sticky keys on Korg extreme


I just changed the key on my Korg Triton Studio 61. It took some time, but it wasn't that hard. You'd better have a power screw driver. I had to take out at least 30 screws.

Do this at your own risk. Don't blame me if you mess up your keyboard. I'm telling you. If you're not that handy, don't try it. Pay attention to detail and be careful.

The Steps that I took

1) Turn your keyboard face down. Make sure you put it on something soft so that you don't scratch the face of your keyboard or damage your knobs or the pitchbender.

2) Remove all the screws on the bottom panel and remove the panel.

3) you have to take the entire keybed out. Lots of screws! I had to remove the "assignable - midi input/output board" to get it out. MAKE SURE THAT YOU DISCONNECT ANY CABLES THAT CONNECT THE KEYBED TO THE REST OF THE KEYBOARD. I had to disconnect the keybed at three different places. These connector cables are NOT strong and if you pull too hard, you WILL break them.

3) Once you get the keybed out, you have to remove the plastic binder that goes at the back of the keybed. It holds the keys in place.

Then Snap the old key out. snap the new key in. Before you unpack your new key, make sure the old one is really broken. I had a key that wasn't broken. It had just come unsnapped. I snapped it back in and it was fine.

Put it all back together again.

I had a broken key before. i got it repaired and it cost me $150. This time I fixed it myself and it cost me $7.50
