Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

Playing midi files on Toshiba A100

I have 2 music sequencing programs.Band in a box and Sonar cakewalk. The B in a Box program works fine, proving the sound card can output midi, but the sonar program only gives me the option of "midi mapper" as a default midi output. My question is, how do I check out my sound cards midi options? I realize this may be an issue with the program, however I would still like to know about my sound card.
Regards

Jeremy

While using korg m50 editor using usb data cable there is no sound from my lap.the sound is only from my head phone connected to my keyboard directly?


Are you connecting to the laptop and using it as a midi controller? You can record midi notes from the keyboard and send them to your laptop via USB using any midi sequencer program (reason, logic, etc). Create a midi track, select the input of that track as your keyboard, then hit record to play some midi notes. To hear what you record, you have to set the output of the midi track to whatever midi sounds or instrunents you have installed on your laptop.

If you are trying to record the actual audio sound the keyboard makes, use an audio program such as cubase, sonar, audacity, pro-tools, and either mic the keyboard, or connect one of the other audio outputs (1/4" TRS) to an audio input on your DAW, and record an audio track that way (as opposed to a midi track).

Goodmorning, I'll try to explain the problem: when I listen to the files (MIDI and MP3) directly with Cakewalk sd-50 using the USB Key the playback is correct. When I listen to the files playing them...


You have to make sure that the clockspeed of the program that you use to play the files back with matches the clockspeed of the program that created them. I might be wrong about that. Here is a good resource:http://forum.recordingreview.com/f18/midi-troubleshooting-101-a-5208/ You will have to join to access but its free and the Killer Home Recording setting up is also free from the site and is full of good info.

On sonar home studio 6 xl. If i play something i hear only 3 seconds music and than it stops. What can i do?


This sounds like the software still thinks it isn't registered to you.

Do you have a registration button in the program interface?

If you have already registered the program or registration isn't required, try loading Sonar on another box and see if it's just a compability problem with your hardware.

Casio PX-320 Keyboard has no MIDI driver for MacOS


It would not be a "driver"... if anything you would need a music editing program. Some examples are like "Cakewalk", "Sonar" etc. This assumes you have a MIDI port on your PC. If not, a driver will come with the MIDI interface you need and buy.

Stuttering during audio playback in Sonar


The stuttering is caused by excessive CPU usage, in other words: you have too little CPU power to play the file with the inserted synth smoothly. You could try inserting a different synth or play with the rendering-options of the synth (like disabling aliasing, etc.) or increase the audio buffer size (under audio options ?), but the only longterm solution is upgrading to a much faster computer.

Even when you find some tweak which lets you play the file (just) smoothly, adding another effect or synth is likely to cause it to stutter again, since your computer doesn't meet the official (!) minimal requirements for running Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is at least a Pentium 4 1.3GHz computer (and you have a 1.0GHz computer).

I would recommend upgrading your computer to something which at least meets the "recommend requirements" of Cakewalk Sonar 6, which is a Pentium 4 2.8GHz or newer (like any Intel Core 2 system), when you're serious about composing music.

My MIDI won't play back even when I play the file, no matter which program I use to play it. The computer I use is a Compaq Presario, I have Cakewalk Home Studio 2002 on it, and my sound card is SB X-FI...


The default MIDI setting of your PC may have been set for another MIDI device (for example, if Cakewalk Home Studio has been used with a MIDI compatible keyboard). Go to... Control Panel / Sounds and Audio Devices / Audio / MIDI music playback and change the setting back to your soundcard (and set as default if you prefer).

Midi vs. Sound


Think of MIDI like the old time player pianos where you put a roll into it and the punches on the paper roll told the piano what notes to play. MIDI is a way for computers and musical instruments to communicate what is being played. When you plug your keyboard into your computer and enable it in Cakewalk, then Cakewalk records what notes you are playing on your keyboard (makes a piano roll file). Then when you tell Cakewalk to play this file back it communicates to your keyboard and says play these notes just like a person was sitting there playing these notes. The distinction here is you are recording and playing back your performance (which keys you pressed, how hard you struck the keys, how long you held the keys for sustain, etc...). No sound is actually being recorded, just the PERFORMANCE. When you play it back, the keyboard regenerates the sounds on the fly just as if you were actually sitting there performing the music again. Same thing applies to other MIDI enabled instruments (drums, guitar, saxaphone, etc...). This opens up all kinds of possibilities, you can redirect the recorded MIDI file to a completely different sound or instrument. Example... you record MIDI of you playing piano song, then you have Cakewalk play this MIDI back to your keyboard but you change the sound on your keyboard to guitar, it will play the same song, but now you will hear guitar instead of piano. Get it?

Problem with stability


Celeron CPU's will struggle with making music and limit what you can do with audio. Celerons are ok to play music but nor really for making music. Firewire is a better option for making music as it's really fast unlike USB. An option would be to get a faster CPU and try the soundcard again. But i would not use USB audio and would use an Audiophile 2496 soundcard as they are really cheap. Also midi is data and not audio, midi just works virtual instruments and is able to control keyboards through midi out. But first try a better CPU as a celeron isant that good for makign music. I know becouse i've been there done that and go really upset with the same problems your having at the moment. I played the midi files on cuabse and recorded it onto an audio chanel.
