Question about Yamaha Full-Size Keyboard

Open Question

I have purchased a Yamaha S08 along with SQ01 software, midi connector, USB cord and have put the software onto the computer. I can not get the piano's music to play onto the computer. I have never done anything like this before. My computer is a Dell with Windows XP. When I turn the piano on, the computer recognizes new software. What am I doing wrong?/right?

SOURCE: Yamaha clavinova won't play C natural in any octave

Hi ...
There are flexible cables that connect the keys to the main electronics. The connectors for those cables sometimes age poorly..
It is fixable. But dont "get taken" on a repair.
If it's just resoldering a few points,it shouldnt be more than $100.00
to fix

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Needs USB-MIDI Driver For WK 110 Piano for Windows 7(64 Bit)

Here is tie official site for the driver ... http://driverwhiz.com/drivers-en?brand=Casio&logo=Casio&subid=1001-us-en-10000000394&gclid=COT9m4uGhKACFdx05QodUT3Zkw

Evidently Casio has not written drivers for Windows 7/64 if I understand your comment. I am not that familiar with 7 but I do know in past versions, Windows has offered "compatability mode" so older devices might work with newer operating systems. Have you explored this possibility?

Here are the options I see:

Look for compatability mode on your new computer.

Ask Casio for a driver.

(I'm not a big fan of third party drivers - maybe you are - you can look for a third party driver)

Continue to operate your WK 110 using a 32 bit computer.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

SOURCE: i have yamaha PSR-i425 keyboard.can i conect it

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.

Will a midi interface allow me to play downloaded music on a yamaha clainova 305


Yes, with some preparation. The music will have to be in a standard MIDI file format or a format that results in standard MIDI over USB output when "played" by computer software or an external sequencer. Within the software you will probably need to create a new "instrument" if there is not already a template for the CVP 305, otherwise the tracks and sub channels in the MIDI file will be patched to GM, probably not what you want to hear.

How do i connect my keyboard and my laptop?


Download USB MIDI driver for yamaha from yamaha website,and install to laptop.
Next:
Make sure the POWER switch on the instrument is set to OFF,then use an AB type USB cable to connect the instrument to the laptop.
After making the connections, turn on the power of the instrument.
Laptop will immediately notify that new hardwares is connecting and automatically install the drivers. Wait until the process is finish.
Thats all. In Ableton,the setting MIDI input must be set to USB MIDI.

Which midi cable or USB midi cable should I use for Yamaha DGX 520 model.


It doesn't use a USB to MIDI adapter (such as the UX-16.) It has an onboard MIDI controller and uses a standard USB A-B cable. You just need to install the driver from the CD-ROM or here, and plug it in. You can get the manual from the same page or here. Setup is on page 99.

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
mparkyn

I have a light snake midi to usb cabel an its suppossed light up when you plug it in but when i plug it in the computer dosnt recgonize the connection at all and the cord does not light up indicating that...


You MAY need to connect a MIDI device to it to get it to light, not just plugging into the computer. The MIDI communication current comes FROM the device being driven an ONLY flows when a device is CONNECTED.

Connect usbtocomputer


Hello - I am too a personal owner of a CASIO CTK keyboard, a little older than yours (model CTK-601) a great keyboard BTW, and I have connected it to my computer successfuly.

There are 2 ways of connecting the keyboard to your PC......Using the MIDI outputs and a special MIDI to gameport adapter - if you have a very old system and have a joystick port (D-sub shape) on your soundcard or PC, then you use that cable. Of course this is legacy and stopped existing in newer computers, now USB is used.

Only the professional line of soundcards have direct MIDI inputs. For most of us, with consumer soundcards and PCs, there are no MIDI inputs.

The good news is that newer keyboards support USB MIDI and features direct USB connection - so all you have to do is install the drivers that are provided with your keyboard, usually a CD, and follow the instruction to install the USB drivers for your casio keyboard, BEFORE you plug in the cable (very important!) once installed you reboot and connect your keyboard using a USB cable

Now if your keyboard is older and has MIDI outputs, like mine for example, you will need to purchase a MIDI to USB adapter, those have MIDI cables in one end that plug to your keyboard and the other end a USB connector....... I don't know about the rules if I am allowed to post websites, but the product i'm using is the Uno from M-Audio - in google do this search:

"m-audio"uno

(exactly as shown above with quotes, and uno outside quotes)

Your CTK-810 may alreayd have a USB connector on it, as it is a newer generation keyboard - I am pretty sure it does - what you will have to do as stated above is located your bundled CD-ROM and install the USB drivers - you will need to purchase a USB cable (seperately).
