The mixer is the device that interconnects your keyboard and drum machine. The receiver is just your sound output, and doesn't combine inputs, e.x. drum machine, keyboard, mic, etc.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

When i play the keyboard and record it. it does not playback what i just performed when i record drums it plays back fine only the keyboard. im using the mpk49


I'm not familiar with Reason 5, but many midi track recorders need each instrument assigned to different midi chanels to be heard back. Check the manual in how to assign the midi tracks. Also, the playback has to be through a unit that is multi timbrel capable. Good luck!

okaye, i justt figured itt outt, hopefully you gett an email aboutt this postt...

so anywayz yo,

how many instruments you have hooked up to your mixer? thats the key, #1.

make sure you have atleast ATLEAST 2 mixers in your start up program, once you use the max output input for your original mixer, the next instrument patch you load will not be routed, (no more space), you'll have to route it manually (press Tab) *get familar with routing your own devices, for reverb/chorus and such,

this applies to everything about recieving sound from your project/keyboard. and just route your extra devices on the new mixer --they go up to 14 channels, i have like 22!
so thats my solution, hope itt applies.

I like the sound of my practise amp but it's not powerful enough can i connect it to a larger amp without getting feedback/distortion?


you can use the record outputs to run the signal into a stereo receiver without problems, though it would likely sound better with a shure sm57 microphone hooked up to a mixing board or other instrument amp.

the record output should be PERFECTLY balanced to hook up to a consumer-level stereo reciever with NO distortion; however, this record output might be too loud for another instrument amplifier or a mixing board; hence, the microphone in the latter situation.

short answer- "yes, but..."

If your CD player works hooked up to the DJ board, then try hooking the line out of the board into a auxiliary in or line in in or record in on your receiver using the appropriate cables.Try the CD in first and if there is too much signal then use the CD/Tape in. You need to match the output signal of your board to the input signal of your amp. Hope this helps.

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?

Is the Boss Dr-5 compatable with the Boss BR-1180 mini studio?


Midi doesn't actually "make sound". If your trying to record the patterns you made on the DR-5 to the recorder you need to use an audio output(I don't remember if they are RCA or 1/4" on the DR-5.) The midi output would be used to"trigger sounds" in another device that has sounds built in, or you could also trigger sounds in a program that supports midi input.

Recording on my Yamaha CP33 keyboard using USB


We're talking about audio recording. If so you must conntect your piano by using the L + R outputs with your sound card or mixer line inputs (that's how I do this). USB is ok if you want to use your piano as a master keyboard (MIDI). Another important thing is that you must have an additional application installed called sequencer ( for example Cubase Sx, Sonar...) which will let you store your digital music. I'm not talking about the proper settings of them because it could take a day or so...:)
Overall, you will have to learn a bit about the home studio, home recording techniques. There are tons of informations on web. A great thing is that you can use your CP33 as a master keyboard to control additional virtual instruments (VST) or for example play different piano samples (check Synthogy Ivory). Possibilites are endless!
