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 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.
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.
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.
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.
we should have a mic pin and audio cable as shown in this pic
connect these cables,and connect big pin to the piano and small pin to the computer (mic or input jack)
now take windows movie maker (start-all programs-windows movie maker). click on narrate timeline (as a mic icon below windows movie maker).
now click start narration on the pc and play your song on the piano. you can see input level highlights. now your song is recording. when your song completes click stop narration and save to the pc. walah if you can't understand this say to me. i can add video. sry for my worst english
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.
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.You can download the latest Mac driver from Roland below:EDIROL PCR-300 32-key MIDI Keyboard Controller :: Download
