How they expect you to find the information is beyond me!!! I downloaded the manual and it appears that the information you want is on page 57.

Near the bottom, and the only way I spotted the parameter of MIDI channel number setting is seeing the range as 1 to 16.

They list this as L part and R part channel/track setting... these will be for the left and right parts of the split keyboard... that is you can set a MIDI channel to between 1 and 16 for both the left and right division of the split keyboard.

I don't think many people would find this... AND shame on Yamaha, there doesn't seem to be a MIDI implementation chart, which you should get familiar with for any MIDI devices you might have... the chart is a quick access to the MIDI capability of MIDI devices and they didn't include one in the documentation for this unit...

I have a casio privia px-130, and I'm trying to use it as a MIDI on FL Studio, but it won't show up in FL Studio. Is there a driver that I have to download?


Check the midi channel. It needs to sync to FL Studio. Channel settings you'll need to look up in the privia manual...can be laborious - but worth it in the end :)

I am assuming that you are imbedding the changes in the midi sound files themselves. They will need to be on a separate track with the correct midi channel assigned at the beginning of the track.

I have the yamaha dtexpress and a midifase conect but cant get anny sound to the computer??????????????


try a midi loopback device or a viruual midi cable such as sonys virtual midi cable: http://www.johnrofrano.com/tutorials/virtualmidirouter.htm

i dont know if this one will work, you could also search for loopb1 and hubi's midi loopback device, one of these should work.

what you have to do is use one of these programs, or something similar, to connect your midi input to the soundcard's midi wavetable or to your midi/synth/sequencing software's midi input.

also, the drum machine should be set to output to midi channel 10. make sure that your software is set to recieve on midi channel 10, if applicable.

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 don't no how to record in split layer. And do I twerk this keyboard


I don't know what you are using to record with but if you are recording audio try sending half of the split right and the other half left or use two separate channels to record each half. Mix as needed. If you are recording midi using a DAW assign each half of the split to a separate midi channel and assign the receives to separate channels in your DAW. If you are recording onboard your manual should have the solution and you might just have missed it so far.

I'm trying to midi from my mm8 into my mm6,but will not receive the midi signal,i went into utility ,and all the settings seem to be set right,what am i doing wrong?


I assume you have MIDI out MM8 cabled to MIDI in MM6?

You also have to setup the MIDI to be emitted by the MM8 and define the MIDI channel(s) to be used at both ends.

I assume you are sending note on/off, etc. information and not Sysex which MAY NOT be compatible between these units.

I'm in the studio using LogicPro with my MO8 -


In General MIDI, the grand piano is defaulted to MIDI channel 1.

IF you have a device that responds to "General MIDI" format, just send the MIDI data to channel one and you should be fine. Remember that pianos are VELOCITY controlled and usually don't use after touch so you have to generate appropriate velocity for EACH note if you are using an editor.

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.

Problems setting midi channels using KN3000 and Cubase


If you are sequencing midi tracks you can imbed the patch change in the track and the midi channel assignment and when the sequence plays the info will be sent to the keyboard. Do you have it set to receive Omni?
