Question about Korg Legacy Collection

7 Answers

Intermittent problem with an electric piano.

While playing instrument, sound will either suddenly seise or the last note played will sustain and reverberate indefinately even when key is released. turning keyboard off then on again resets most of the time, other times keys produce no sound. Intermittent= one second to hours between glitch. Note of interest; instrument performs flawlessley while controlling other synths thru midi. any ideas?

    this problem has nothing to do with the legacy, this unit is apprx 20 years old, it is played through an amplifier, not a computer.

    sounds probable except the fact it plays perfect while controlling an e-mu proteus 2000. keys work fine.

It sounds like a keybord failure. The keys of the keyboard can wear out over time. This might result in keys that don't make good contact (you have no sound) or that remain in contact (last note played will sustain ) even when pressure is removed. Probably there is no easy solution for that. I may suggest to disassemble the unit and clean the contact surface under the keys and keys itself with degreaser (40 % ethyl alcohol or 70 % rubbing alcohol) and let it dry for couple hours or dry it with hair dryer. In most cases it helps. If no help you need to replace the unit
Good Luck

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, I would suspect the effects processor rather than the keyboard itself.

If you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself), the unit must be opened to access the effects processor board. It is also required to have familiarity with electronic components (digital & analog) and circuitry, use of a DVM, logic probe and even a soldering iron. Access to a service manual would be to your added advantage or at the very least a schematic diagram. Of particular interest to your diagnosis would be the phase shifter and the effects generator/processor.

Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    The service manual would provide you with the block diagram, the signal flow, where the PCBs are located, test modes, function test, how the MIDI is implemented and therefore why the MIDI is good but analog audio has intermittent issues. Service manual maybe purchased from here and/or here.

Yes this is because you are not connecting it to a computer that has a USB 2.0 port, you are using a USB 1.

USB 2.0 is a much faster connection just like firewire.

so your only option is to use another computer, a new up to date one.

hope this helps

I want to plug my keyboard into my USB port


I just found the same program with the same cables. I am going to try a usb to midi cable made by m-audio only because I have it hooked up right now to laptop running xp and the old version of Mircacle Piano which is the best by far and it works great. It is an M-Audio usb to midi cable called the UNO or something like that. its the one for 39 bucks very simple. It should work as long as your computer is running windows OS thats compatable or try running in 95 mode. Also some of these programs recognize processor speed and dont work on the newer systems. Good luck with it. have you ever used seen this software before? Ever see Miracle Piano? wondering how they compare.

Midi vs. Sound


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?

Midi keyboard sound quality bad


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

Just get clean tone through NI Rig Kontrol 2


you need an asio driver for your rig kontrol.. you are probably set to use DirectX drivers, which will give you latency of 50ms and waaaayy beyond... By contrast, ASIO drivers will give you sub-10ms latency... Most people can play at around 7ms, but im picky, and no more than 5ms will do for me..

Go download the drivers from NI site, and try those.. if that doesnt work, there is ASIO4ALL... google and read.,. this will help ya

keep playin

Playing Roland RS50 through Cubase SE on a PC


Sounds like you may have a MIDI loop. If the Midi I/O Meters on the transport bar ar all the way up then that's the case. Uncheck the speaker Icon next to the track when you are playing.

It's also usually a good idea to have each track set to have it's midi input be just your controller, not "All MIDI Inputs" which it is by default.

Finally, make sure your instrument has "Local Off" configured under its MIDI settings. This prevents it triggering its internal sounds directly and forces everything to go through the sequencer.

If my advice was helpful pleae vote for me!
