Synth willplay stereotones but will not record in stereo

I am from Australia and no-one at Casio Musical Instruments Australia can help with the problem I have. I recently bought a Casio WK-8000. It plays great and sounds great through headphones or it's onboard speakers. However as I only use it for recording I have found a problem that I can't overcome. Despite using 2 into 1 stereo cables into my recording computers, it only records on one channel and as the tones are stereo tones I can't record my favorite tones. Even if i put the cables through a mixer it comes in on 2 channels but each channel replicates the other. Can I record 2 stereo channels - an example of this is the tone synstep1 where the piano is recorded but not the strings behind it (which is the tone I want). Please advise?

Maybe the audio amplifier IC are damaged.

SOURCE: I have a SA-203 receiver.

I did hook up my PC to my SA-203 successfully. I noticed the amplification was weakest when I hooked up through the "phono" connection but in all cases both speakers worked. Be certain you have plugged in the cables completely and the contact points are clean. If you open your Technics SA-203 you will see it is apparently not very complicated so if the connections are the problem you can probably even fix it yourself. Go to Radio Shack online as it is unlikely the sales help knows s**t about there electronics part bins and probably neither will the manager. But once again, I really believe you just need to fiddle with the plug at the "phones" connection on your receiver. Good Luck and sorry I took so long.

SOURCE: I've got a Pioneer PL-300

Hi Mikey. I shure hope you have solved your problem by now, but for everyone else, I woud like to shead some light on this matter. What you need to do is to adjust the auto-return lever that is located between the center of the platter and the tonearm, underneath the plastic cover. To do so, you first need to remove the platter so that can reach the adjustment-screw. 
This is how the lever looks like in my PL-300X and it should look the same for you. I've marked the adjustment-screw that can be reached through a hole under the platter. 

and this is what it looks like with the cover on:

Hope this can solve your or anyone elses problem.  Ciao / Albin

I think the problem you are having is that you are not getting a true 5.1 channel source. You have to be using a digital cable from the source to get the 5.1 speakers to show on the receiver. I had the same issue for a day then figured it out.

For example to get 5.1 speakers from my PS3 blu ray I had to connect the hdmi to the receiver then to tv and then also an opitcal cable to the receiver from the PS3 to get the 5.1 channels.

SOURCE: need help recording in stereo (sound only coming from L spkr)

You generally need two microphones to record in stereo. If you have only one microphone to use, you have to make sure that the pan pot for the channel you are plugged into is set in the center of its range.

I want to record from my Korg M50 to Cubase LE4 on my laptop.

Hello, To record into a lap top you will need a USB mixer, your audio output from the SYNTH will go into the mixer, you use the midi USB cable from the mixer to the lap top. this will help pre amplify your synth to normal audio levels. hope this helps.

I turned my Casio px575r on, after working fine for a couple of years, and get random synth sounds and volume blasts instead of the chosen sound.

You may be running out of internal memory. Try deleting, songs & SMF etc that you may have recorded to INF AFTER moving them to an SD CARD first.
IDES4 can also be used to move user tones etc and do a factory init.

I once had this problem with another Casio synth.
I hadn't the power adapter ant I tried with an other one, with the same specifications : the synth was apparently powered but it didn't work.
I finally understood that it was a problem of polarity (+/-). You may just have to cut the cable and resold it inverted.
Hope it could help!

The output of the casio may only be mono, you can buy splitters to create a 2x channel output. Is there any other outputs from the casio other than headphones, usually there are red/white RCA outputs (Phono's) which would be better for connecting to your soundcard.

Hope I was of use to you, good luck.

Pat, the USB output on the Casio WK-210 is only capable of sending and receiving MIDI information. It's not sending any digital or analog audio. Audacity is primarily for sound file editing.

In order to use the keyboard to record onto your computer you can connect an audio cable from the 1/8" stereo mini-jack to an input on your computer. Then you can record into Audacity.

Or you can acquire MIDI recording software (ie. Logic, Cubase) and then using the USB output on the keyboard, you can control and record multiple MIDI instruments in those programs.

I can´t find CASIO CTK-810

Vista has SO MANY compatibility problems that it MAY be futile to try finding a specific driver for thaat synth. Consider going to Windows 7. HOWEVER, a MIDI driver is a MIDI driver and anything specific to the synth is really not truly just a driver as such, but a user interface type program that may contain things like voice editors and other functions specific to the synth.

NO power to my Casio CTK 671

OFTEN the power connector in the synth get broken from the circuit board connections.

ALSO verify the adapter is actually putting out the correct voltage or slightly above it..

How do i hook up my casio wk3700 to an interface for computers?

If you just want to record, use a cable with the proper ends to go from the stereo lineout jacks on your Casio into the soundcard line in on your computer. Use recording software such as Audacity. If you want to connect using Midi you will need an adapter such as this product: You use it to connect the Midi In/Out jacks on your Casio to the USB port on your computer. Using midi opens up a world of possibilities. Please let me know if this helps.
