We're talking about audio recording. If so you must conntect your piano by using the L + R outputs with your sound card or mixer line inputs (that's how I do this). USB is ok if you want to use your piano as a master keyboard (MIDI). Another important thing is that you must have an additional application installed called sequencer ( for example Cubase Sx, Sonar...) which will let you store your digital music. I'm not talking about the proper settings of them because it could take a day or so...:)
Overall, you will have to learn a bit about the home studio, home recording techniques. There are tons of informations on web. A great thing is that you can use your CP33 as a master keyboard to control additional virtual instruments (VST) or for example play different piano samples (check Synthogy Ivory). Possibilites are endless!

Hey idiots, that's cause USB is for MIDI. Plug a 1/8 stereo cable from the headphone jack on your keyboard into you're BLUE "line in" jack on your computer (next to pink and green i would hope) and select "line in" on your recording program.

I can't connect a usb device with music on to the clavinova.


You have to format the USB stick using the Yamaha Clavinova. The reason is that the keyboards expects certain file/folder structures on the stick. If you format it on the computer, the computer will not know what files or directories to create for the Clavinova when it formats the stick.

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

Yamaha CP33 Studio Piano won' turn on. Was thinking maybe the power chord overheated but really have no idea


Make sure you have the CORRECT adapter for the unit. It should say Yamaha on it and match the voltage and polarity. Thest the output with a meter. Common problems that happen to the piano itself causing the symptoms is a broken power connector or broken solder at the connector. Use a meter and verify the adapter is producing output. Expect the output to be a bot higher than listed when not plugged into the piano as there is no load on the adapter.

Where can i find windows 7 x 64 drivers please help mee !!!


Your Yamaha DGX 203 Portable Keyboard - USB-MIDI Driver Version 1.2.2 ie. for OS Win9x/ME.

Yahama site does not have the Win7(x64) Drivers ie. USB-MIDI for your Keyboard Model DGX-203

But you can try the USB-MIDI Driver Version 3.1.0 for Windows(R) 7/Vista/XP 64bit for Model DGX-520 @ http://usa.yamaha.com/products/musical-instruments/keyboards/digitalkeyboards/dgx_series/dgx-520/?mode=model

I can't assured you that it will works on your system. Since your Keyboard is no longer in production, I doubt Yahama will provide you with the official USB-MIDI drivers for your Keyboard even you requested for it.

I guess this is an option you can try and hope it works & good luck.

Regards.

Please teach me how to do a recording of bits with the keyboard PSR S710, it uses a USB drive, but i don't know how to use it


You need to have a basic recording program installed on your computer. If you use Apple you can use garageband. If you use Windows you can install audacity http://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/
You will have to install the drivers of our yamaha keyboard than connect it with the usb cable to your computer and select the PSR S710 as an input in your recording program.

Yamaha DGX-620 blank screen or screen with vertical lines


I`ve had a similar problem with a Korg that I use at the club and on gigs, I don`t know whether Yamaha use a similar method or not but when I stripped mine down, I found that the glass LCD panel is connected to the PCB via a ribbon cable which gets sandwiched between the PCB and the LCD panel when screwed up, It`s not soldered or hard wired to the PCB, It was producing intermittent connections between the uPC and the display panel where parts of letters and symbols were missing. When I removed the panel, I found that it was oxidized so I used some switch cleaner which doesn`t leave a residue (Don`t use lubricant or WD40 as this will destroy the LCD panel by penetrating between the layers of Liquid Crystal rendering it useless) and gently cleaned the contacts on both the LCD and PCB panels (Don`t spray the panel or this could penetrate) by spraying a small amount onto a tissue then gently wiping this into the nooks and crannies with a nail brush then wiping off the excess with another tissue. I`ve had no problems since, (touch wood). Please use extreme caution when working with these panels as they are dedicated to your keyboard and therefore extremely expensive to replace. If yours has an extension lead from the LCD panel to a plug on the PCB, it should be a lot easier to clean this one cable where it enters the plug on the PCB than mine was, but still use extreme care. Best of luck, Ian

Yamaha psr e403


Wow, this site actually works, that's cool. Well, truth be told, I aborted the mission. I tried everything I knew how. I'm fairly savvy w/music gear, as I produce my own music in my studio here. I just couldn't get the driver to install. Granted, I'm new at Vista and it's my wife's kickaround PC, so I didn't bother getting to the bottom of it. My gut feeling, however, is that there is an answer. I don't know if it's a problem with Vista or the software. Yamaha might have a customer service number. Perhaps the vendor you bought it from? I buy all my gear from Sweetwater and their free tech support is worth every penny I spend there. I have no answer for you, unfortunately, but as someone who deals with tech issues regularly, I know that the answer is out there for you. Best of luck.

Yamaha 61 key keyboard midi usb connected but what next


Depending on what you want to do...

If it's only music Mixing, you will have to plug your keyboard via audio jack to the line in of your computer. Then Audacity (free soft) can do the job.

If you want to edit midi file with your keybord you will need midi editor software like Linux-Rosegarden or if under windows try LMMS (all free soft of course).

Good luck
