Hi there, check over all your MIDI leads also. MIDI is a current operated system and is very prone to misfiring if all connectivity is not A1.

Make sure that you have the correct midi mapping for your Yamaha. There should have been a software program, called a mid map editor (MME), that came with your keyboard. If you are unfamiliar with this, it is used for changing the values that are sent through the midi cable into your computer (for example, you can change the C0 to be C#0, or any other value, including a numeric value instead of a tonal value). If you bought it used there may have been values changed on midi-trigger presets, which would cause this. If you do have the program, use it to at least investigate that all of the values are in the right places. Often times when someone who is unfamiliar with an MME installs it they open it to see what it is. They change things (not realizing they have done that) and then can't figure out why there is a problem.
Also, make sure your midi cable has the same connections as your keyboard. Some brands make very slight variations to avoid patent issues that may make some cables and instruments incompatible. I have two cables that work fine with certain midi controllers, but when switched they both fail. It's good to make sure the plug ports are clean of dust/dirt, too.
If you are familiar with these problems and they are not yours, you may need to get a different cable. Try to borrow one from a friend to see if the cable is the problem before you buy one. If that still doesn't fix it you may have an internal software or hardware issue. Good luck! I hope I could help.

MIDI Basics


MIDI is the language used by electronic instruments to tell each other what to play. When you press a key on a musical keyboard this keyboard will send a MIDI message to a computer or a musical instrument connected. The message says something like: start playing this note at this volume. When you stop pressing the key a new message is sent which says: stop playing this note.
MIDI messages can be transmitted using MIDI cables or USB. Old instruments had MIDI ports (round with five connectors inside) so a computer had to have a MIDI interface. Nowadays it's almost all done with usb.
The important thing to remember is that a MIDI message (and a MIDI cable) are just an instruction to play, they don't contain sound. The sound you hear when you press a key comes from the computer or the instrument connected to the keyboard, not from the plastic key you have pressed.
There is a lot more to say, but I would suggest you check wikipedia first and then come back with more specific questions.

How can I send recordings to my laptop? I have a usb connector and i want to connect my portable grand to my laptop but the laptop does not detect the piano and i don't know what to press on the piano...


Hi mjaynneb,

I could be wrong here but I have a number of keyboards and the USB connection is usually for Midi control from software like Cubase and the like. If by recording you mean recording Audio then I think you'll find that it won't be possible using the USB port.

Midi is great and I use it a lot. It enables you to arrange music using your computer. Also you can record the music you play on the Keyboard on the computer as Midi. This means that the computer can play back through your arranger what you just played. Bear in mind though that Midi is purely numbers that represent notes, velocities and note duration so is not actually audio.

My keyboards have the ability to record to SD card or a Hard Drive, however if this is not a feature of your arranger then probably your best bet for recording audio from it is by using the Audio out ports of your arranger and using a connecting lead to a good low noise sound card on your computer. As you are using a laptop you can find external usb sound cards/interfaces so that should do fine. Then you could probably use something like Audacity which is free software, to record to a wav file.

I hope this helped.
Kind Regards

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.

I have yamaha PSR-i425 keyboard.can i conect it with my pc to play midi files stored in computer memory?


Yes. You will need to have a MIDI interface on your OC and also select in the sounds control panel of windows that you are using the external synth. The MIDI will expect the PSR to respond to the "general MIDI" assignments.

Can I change a plain keyboard into a MIDI-enabled one?


Normally, no. They do make MIDI controller keyboards that don't make a sound, but will input note info into your computer's software program....just a thought. Personally, I've got an old Yamaha DX-7 Series 1 that I use to input and listen back with.

Notes don't stop even after I release the key


The keyboard  is not sending a note off instruction after the key is released. Try checking midi preferences in reason.If your using a Mac check that the edirol is present by launching Audio MIDI Setup utility located in the utilities folder.

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!
