Question about Steinberg Cubase SX3

1 Answer

Playing Roland RS50 through Cubase SE on a PC

I have started having problems with the consistency of the notes sounding when playing the keyboard. For example when playing stocatto chords (like Supertramp) the notes start to sound randomly like the system can't handle it. the key board plays fine through headphones so it must be something to do with the MIDI set up.

Can you help?

Thanks

Paul

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!

I've recently purchased a Roland foot pedal for my casio privia px-300 keyboard. When playing a note, even though the pedal is not pressed, the note sustains. When I press the foot pedal down, it cuts...


Sorry, but Roland uses the opposite sense switch. They use normally closed where Casio requires normally open contacts. SOMETIMES one can rewire the pedal internally, but you have to be mechanically and electrically inclined to do that.

Got a Roland GW-8. I've had it for almost a year and a half. The problems consists on the fact that the keyboard gets out of tune while playing. Its not even a full note. After that I have to shut it...


OK... It is literally impossible for the unit to "go out of tune" as it is crytal controlled... HOWEVER what is probablly happening is the PITCH BENDER is getting into the mix somehow.
If the centering on the pitch bend control is sticking or is loose, this would likely be the problem.
Do some tests with the pitch bender to see if you can detect either a mechanical or offset condition of the control.

Read page 135 regarding the note range settings. Look also for keyboard split information. You may have the keyboard set to NOT play notes in the top octaves for the particular voice you are using.

When I connect my midi cables to my PC and use Fruity Loops or Mixcraft and I play notes on the Roland Juno D keyboard, some of the notes stick and dont stop playing once released and others are played...


You need to turn off the echo of the MIDI that sends the signals back to the Juno. When near simulataneous MIDI signals are mixed the decoder can receive "partial" messages that re-trigger the notes and then miss the note off commands. If you can't find the setting in the software, disconnect the input to the Juno MIDI while recording it.

The name for the notes that don't stop playing is "Dreaded MIDI Drone". It is caused by multiple note on commands and lost "mating" note off commands.

Also read "c." on page 80 regarding buffer length and "choppy" sounds.

Cubase se problems communicating to Casio keyboard LK45


I aint much of a keyboard person but I'm assuming you'd probably have to plug it into a mic slot in the computer...if it doesnt play try the volume settings to see if the microphone is muted or anything... As long as the keyboard's got some form of amplification it should work... then again... Bill Gates does **** all right

I don't have Cubase myself but there must be a track setting that allows you to monitor what you are playing live. Also make sure your keyboard shows up as the midi controller on the software. Your receive channel has to match the send channel of the keyboard. Make sure that synthA or synthB shows up as the sound source (audio out). XFi Midiport is your midi in but since Cubase already sees your keyboard your problem is an audio one not a midi one. Hope this helps.
