Well, you have to get into the keyboard. There will be screws or latches that hold the case together.

SOMETIMES screws are hidden beneath stuck on rubber feet.

SOMETIMES plastic latches are where there are slots... have to be careful as they can break if you don't open them right.

WORST are latches along the sides that you have to pry open... knowing where they are is key.

You will probably find that the keys consist of conductive rubber "pills" that are in silicone rubber domes that the keys press against finger-like circuit traces on a board under the keys.

Clean BOTH the pills and the traces with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and a Q-tip.

    One final thing... SOMETIMES a screw is HIDDEN under a label that you have to puncture to get at. This serves as a detector for warranty tampering. Find these by rubbing the back of a pen over suspected labels and look for denting.

Why are the Keys on my axiom pro 61 not sending MIDI messages?


Does your keyboard have a "MIDI OUT" port? If yes, then
there is a selection to choose between USB or MIDI OUT port.
For my M-AUDIO oxygen 61 (silver), I must press the [Advanced] button then Note F3 on the music keys manual to toggle the MIDI-OUT.
If set to INT, it will not sent via USB. If set to USB it will not send via MIDI-OUT port. To use MIDI-OUT port I need external 12V DC adapter.

Windows 7 64 can not install the driver


Windows 7 64Bit requires signed drivers. Try looking on vendor's website otherwise I am afraid you need to either get a new controller or disable this requirement (not supported by MS)

While using korg m50 editor using usb data cable there is no sound from my lap.the sound is only from my head phone connected to my keyboard directly?


Are you connecting to the laptop and using it as a midi controller? You can record midi notes from the keyboard and send them to your laptop via USB using any midi sequencer program (reason, logic, etc). Create a midi track, select the input of that track as your keyboard, then hit record to play some midi notes. To hear what you record, you have to set the output of the midi track to whatever midi sounds or instrunents you have installed on your laptop.

If you are trying to record the actual audio sound the keyboard makes, use an audio program such as cubase, sonar, audacity, pro-tools, and either mic the keyboard, or connect one of the other audio outputs (1/4" TRS) to an audio input on your DAW, and record an audio track that way (as opposed to a midi track).

Akai MPK mini MIDI Controller Keyboard, 25-Key ... my keysare broken from were it clips on


I have the same keyboard, what do you mean from where it clips on. Do you mean the keys itself are broken? I'm not sure how you did that, but you can contact Akai and see if they will send you a new one. Those keys are supposed to be pressure sensitive and unbreakable. Please rate me for assisting you today! :-) PS I love that little thing!

I can't get my Yamaha WX5 to sustain, or play more than one note. I got it to do it long ago by accident, but can't seem to get it to do it again. I think I was using a Yamaha Keyboard for the sounds at...


Reread your manual pages 14 and 15. Note page 14 tells you that "When using a monophonic tone generator such as the VL70m, the Normal Hold and Follow Hold functions CANNOT be used." I have both the WX5 and WX7. I also have both the VL70m and the WT11. The VL70m has a lot of better sounds, is editable and has better effects the WT11 allows you to use both follow modes. Any polyphonic midi keyboard with a midi in jack will allow you to use the follow modes. Read the directions on page 9 of your WX5 manual to hook your WX5 to the keyboard. Set your keyboard to receive all midi channels. I think it is Omni On, Poly. Hope this helps.

Casio Privia PX-120 cannot be connected to Reason or FL


When you are using midi the sounds from your keyboard aren't sent anywhere. What happens is control messages are sent over the midi cable from midi out to midi in on the other device which must have midi sounds on it (in your case the sound card) to make any sounds. The messages can be things like note on/of or pitch bend etc. If you want to send messages to produce a result on your laptop and still here something you can loop the messages by running from midi out on the device end ( your laptop) back to midi in on your keyboard. A much better explanation is available here:http://www.indiana.edu/~emusic/etext/MIDI/chapter3_MIDI.shtml I also signed up to this site (its free) that has great people and lots of info:http://www.recordingreview.com/ I recommend downloading Killer Home Recording setting up which at this time is also free and has the best advice you could want in it. I'd also recommend checking out Reaper which is comparable to Reason, Cubase or Protools. If this helps please let me know.

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.

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.
