Where can i get a ctk 481 driver


CTK 481 only has MIDI-IN and MIDI-OUT ports & no USB. So you need to buy a USB-MIDI interface (cable-like) preferably one that is class-compliant for you OS. Class-compliant device do not need drivers (PCs, MACs, IPAD).

I am using CTK-810 Casio. I want to use it for MIDI on my Laptop.What are the various ways , I can do that? Do I need any addition drivers and Physical cables..? Will I be able to use MIDI for CTK-810?


You need a MIDI to USB cable. I use the M-Audio Uno. I would recommend this--very reliable. Check it out here's the link: http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Uno.html
This will allow you to send and receive MIDI between your laptop and Casio Keyboard.

Casio Chord is internal to the keyboard and doesn't come out on MIDI. Transpose is similar and while the button may send a MIDI transpose type signal out, the notes will not transpose in your computer...

Oh, oh... that is often called the "Dreaded MIDI Drone".

There ccan be more than one causes, however two of those are this:

1. The receiving device either does or does not respond to the note off command or only responds to the note on command with zero velocity, which is also now interpreted as note off. Check the MIDI implementation chart to determine this.

2. Two MIDI commands have merged without using a MIDI merger which makes sure ONLY complete MIDI commands are sent. If the commands are mixed, dreaded MIDI drone is assured.

Casio CTK 810 with Windows 7


Hello,

You need a midi to usb interface, otherwise it is quite simple. I personally have an M-Audio interface that plugs into my midi out and plugs into your usb port on your computer. Once done, you can create a profile in Reason for your CTK. Windows 7 will notice the M-Audio device and then you will be able to use midi. You may have to install a specific driver for the particular M-AUdio device (or another midi to usb interface) but that is simple. You do not have to worry about a driver for the keyboard.

In my experience, M-Audio makes about the best midi/usb interface, and they come in all popular configurations. I use a very small 1-to-1 interface, though there are multi port interfaces one can buy. I purchased mine on eBay, though you can find them at Guitar Center if you have one in your City, or alternately Musiciansfriend.com web site. Many online stores sell them though. You amy want to use Amazon or a price comparison web site to find your best deal.

Thank you for using FixYa, and good luck.

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).
