I have the mid-air 25 keyboard i think the interface and compatibility with windows xp is awesome! easy to use easy to program settings into and tons and tons of neat features built into the keyboard itself....hrmm upon looking it seems the series has been discontinued for some reason... under that knowledge i would suggest one of possibly these systems for price and quality

Ctk 810in not able to read or play midi files


If you connect to PC using USB interface, then use a commercial midi player - e.g Melody Assistant or Harmony assistant to play MIDI files to it.

Or else download "SMF convertor" to convert midi files and download compatible file to keyboard.

Do not get MIDI signal via EDIROL UA25




Midi is data only, there is no actual sound to the midi tracks themselves. They need to be assigned to either a software synth or an external synth to actually make the sounds you want to hear.

For instance if you load a demo of a midi sequance you will need to add a software synth such as the TTS-1 or Roland sound canvas which are general midi compatable and will play the instruments sounds assigned to the demo's midi channels. Use the Synth Rack feature in Sonar to open one of them. Then you will need to assign the output of each of the midi tracks to that particular synth and you will get sound. Make sure to assing the synth's audio track to you UA-25 as its audio output.

I would suggest reading in the manual and following the tutorials included in the manual to get yourself familier with how this is all done. spacer.gif

I cant connect my yamaha ypt 320 to my pc using the midi


Assuming you have a MIDI interface on your computer, you need to connect the MIDI cables between the keyboard and the PC. You cross connect, that is, in to out and vice versa. You will ALSO need the driver software for the interface in the PC AND most importantly, some software in the PC to handle the MIDI for instance to record.

How do i hook up midi equipment?


Dear Armada 500 user:

The previous posts I have seen in response to your question both offer good answers as to USB hardware.

I would like to elaborate a bit on your quest by advising you of some very important facts regarding the total scenario as it relates to MIDI processing for your consideration, before you invest much more time or money in your endeavor.

Not knowing your particular desired "end-result" or ultimate intention is a bit of a challenge because there are some essential O/S, processor, memory and storage requirement limitations you may encounter depending on what you are wanting to accomplish. Current MIDI sequencing application solutions are much more demanding and intended for more current system platforms that support more memory, offer faster processors and larger hard drives.

Having said this, please must consider the following if you have not done so already.

  1. You should be at least on XP SP 3, although WIndows 2000 Workstation SP 2 is an acceptable minimum O/S platform though not preferred.
  2. The Armada 500 is limited to 512 MB RAM. This is a problem w/XP as a min. of 1GB RAM is recommended for XP SP3. It was introduced in 2002, so it is 7 years old!
  3. You'll probably need to upgrade your hard drive as the standard configs for this model maxed out at 30GB. (Note: you will probably only be able to upgrade to maybe an 80 GB HD due to BIOS limitations on supported drive capacities for that unit.) Check Compaq Armada 500 BIOS upgrade specs before you do this. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=96717&lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=96231&taskId=135
Unless you are planning to use an older (5+ years old)
sequencing application which supports the limitations I have previously cited, you cannot efficiently implement a MIDI sequencing solution without experiencing limited performance, time-outs or possible compatability problems on this system.

Though MIDI data processing itself is NOT processor intensive, the applications associated with current MIDI sequencing solutions may well NOT be very compatible with this system due to the O/S, processor and memory support limitations.

I have addressed this very issue with numerous clients over the years, and it is at best, a frustrating endeavor.

Check this PCMCIA to USB 2 adapter as another option: IOGEAR GPU202 2 Port USB 2.0 PCMCIA CardBus Card You'll also need an A to D convertor/mixer/interface like the M-AUDIO Fast Track Pro 24-bit 96KHz USB Interface 4 x 4 Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface with Preamps. I recommend these interfaces almost exclusively to our home studio clients. Go to www.newegg.com for these and other adapter options.

With some tweaking and a little give and take, this can be perhaps accomplished with what you have, but I would recommend a newer notebook or PC & Windows O/S platform for best results with MIDI sequencing. I wish you well...

Can't get Casio CTK 601 / 611 to function as MIDI Contrller


I'm not at home right now where all my manuals are so I'll try to explain with out. You will have to set it so that the keyboard is the slave device. Try setting it to Omni receive. It has to be able to listen for all midi channels at once. You have to write a sequence on your computer and hook it to your keyboard by using midi out on the computer to midi in on the keyboard in order for you to use the computer as a controller. If you need the keyboard to create the sequences then you have to hook the midi send on the keyboard to the midi in on the computer play/enter your notes into individual tracks in your software then assign channels, voices etc to each track and save the sequence. Then when you hook it up the other way the sequence will play just like an audio recording except the sound w2on't be there. What you have recorded by creating a sequence is a series of midi messages that the keyboard will receive if you have it set properly and hooked up ptroperly which it will translate into sound. This is a minimalist explanation at best. You will have to have a better understanding of not only your keyboard but also your software and midi in general. There are some pretty amazing things you can do with midi. For instance if you have a lighting controller that is midi capable you can i,mbed all the lighting scene changes for your song in order on one track. You can also control your guitar effects pedal to change effects automatically while your playing. Once you get a handle on it you are only limited by your imagination and your budget. Hope this helps in some way.
