Question about Yamaha PSRE413 Keyboard
I'm trying to connect my PSR E413 to my laptop. I have a USB kabel for both ends. I want to record stuff with ableton.
Hello, for recording into your lap top via the midi usb, you will need a small 4 channel "USB" mixer or more if you prefer, I have a 6 channel usb mixer with rca and xlr connectors, you plug your synth into the mixer via the synth's out put main xlr or rca connectors. Then from the mixer you connect the midi to usb cable to the lap top. you now can record via your lap top or amplify your synth to speakers or monitors the mixer works as a pre amp for normalizing midi sounds to the lap top. . you can also use your DAW's installed on your lap top this way just switch your audio work stations input to usb. if you want to control your audio work stations software instruments or added soft synths then you have to connect a synth directly from the midi cable as a controller. for simply recording from the synth to your lap top I recommend using a usb mixer. hope this helps http://www.briostudio.com.my/onlinestore/images/XENYX%201204USB%20Live_Recording%20Hookup%20Example.png

Download USB MIDI driver for yamaha from yamaha website,and install to laptop.
Make sure the POWER switch on the instrument is set to OFF,then use an AB type USB cable to connect the instrument to the laptop.
After making the connections, turn on the power of the instrument.
Laptop will immediately notify that new hardwares is connecting and automatically install the drivers. Wait until the process is finish.
Thats all. In Ableton,the setting MIDI input must be set to USB MIDI.
