OFTEN the keyboards come with the required cable. Some require only a A/B USB cable. If it uses the 5 pin MIDI type cable, you will need a USB to MIDI external adapter for your computer.

How to connect Gk3 equipped guitar to Electric Piano or Synthesiser ?


A Gk3 cannot be connected directly to an electric piano or synthesiser. The 23 pin DIN connector connects the GK3 / GUITAR to a Roland guitar synthesiser which produces the synth tones . This unit can be connected via midi cable to any external keyboard or synthesiser...to produce different or varied tones from the external synth ........provided the devices are able to communicate with each other...see the midi implementation charts for each device for information....

How to connect Yamaha per 630 keyboard tot PC connection to Yamaha per 630 keyboard PC


Assuming it is a pSr630 keyboard then there are 2 ways to connect depending on the computer you are using. The 630 uses 5 pin din midi in and out.

1) If you wish to connect to USB then you will need a USB midi interface such as

or

2) If you are connecting to a desktop with a 15 pin socket you can use a cable

Your software then should recognise the input type in use and allow you to connect it accordingly.

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.

I cant connect my yamaha ypt 320 to my pc using the midi


Assuming you have a MIDI interface on your computer, you need to connect the MIDI cables between the keyboard and the PC. You cross connect, that is, in to out and vice versa. You will ALSO need the driver software for the interface in the PC AND most importantly, some software in the PC to handle the MIDI for instance to record.

How to connect psr-3000 to computer


You can connect it with USB connection to your computer. It should be plug and play, but some drivers might be required.
You can connect it also via MIDI interface: - you will need sound-card with MIDI input connector, or you can use special MIDI device like M-Audio UNO.

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).

Yamaha Clavinova CLP 260


hi...
Your L/R jacks in the back need to connect to the "line-in" connector on your sound card.
I think the jacks on the Clav are 1/4 inch. Go to Radio shack and ask for an adapter that will take two 1/4 inch plugs/cable and convert it to a 1/8 inch stereo plug.
The Midi connects From (keyboard) To (soundcard)
Cables are available at any music store
