If you are playing several keyboards in your setup I would recommend a mixer. You can insert the E.Q. in the effects loop of the mixer or if you want to control the E.Q. of just one keyboard it is easiest to go from the output of your keyboard to the input of your E.Q. and from the output of your E.Q. to the input of the amplifier or P.A. you are using. If you run stereo out you will need a stereo E.Q.

If you're only using the keyboard, connect the keyboard output to the EQ input, and EQ output to your amp.

If you have multiple instruments and a mixer, run mixer output to EQ input, EQ output to amp.

More info, let me know.

    EQ's are not effective if only connected to an effects loop. In that case the EQ'ed signal is being remixed with the non-EQ'ed signal which is going to produce only partial EQ'ing of the signal -- this is usually not the result the user is trying to achieve.

Alesis QS8 keyboard. The volume of the organ is much louder than the keyboard when I switch between both modes without touching the volume slide. How can I fix this.


On organ mode, in general, almost all brands of the modern keyboard, velocity setting is not enabled. Setting velocity is used to determine how much the level of the sound that follows how strongly you press the keys. It is really just to imitate the sound of vintage organs, which in the past, electronic organ technologi not use the velocity on the keys. So, how strong / slow we press the keys, the sound level will remain the same.
At the Piano mode,modern keyboard using setting velocity. This also to imitate an acoustic piano, which, if we press the keys slowly, the sound level will be slow as well, and vice versa.
So, in your case,at the same volume slider, try to play on the organ modes, note level. Moving to the piano mode and press the keys securely powered (full power). Then the sound level should be equal to the organ mode.
On modern keyboards, also included organ sound that added velocity setting. Usually found on the user bank.

MOX6 won't turn on. When switch is pushed, it makes a brief faint electronic sound and nothing else. Tried a different power supply block of equal values (12v 1.5A) and still no power up.


You might have an internal fuse blown. If you are capable, open up the keyboard and visually look at the fuses. If one is blown, replace with the same amp rating. Good luck!

Keyboard stand by casio seems to have no support to hold the keyboard. The keyboard slides from side to side on the stand


Just add some adhesive Velcro (hook and loop fastener) The industrial rated for 25 pound should be good for most players, 75 pound rated minimum for Jerry Lee Lewis type players.

Set the stand at the height you want, put the hook tape on the stand leg top and then target the fuzzy strip to the piano. Be aware the pound rating is rated per square inch- so you will want to put a 10 or 12 inch strip of fuzzy on the piano, and 1 or 2 inch strips on the stand leg.

Which system do I need to be able to trigger loops/textures/pads from the lower 2 or 3 strings of my guitar (kinda like one finger accompaniment on cheap keyboards), while soloing on the higher strings?


You could hook the output of the GR33 to something like an AKAI MPC (http://www.akaipro.com/mpc) assigning different notes to trigger different samples or sequences.

How do i hook up my Ultragraph Pro 6200 equalizer to my Europower PMP5000?


You use special "insert cables" to insert the EQ into the path from teh mixer to the power amps. Thee cables have three 1/4 inch jacks and are a Wye type cable that connect the TIP of the TRS jack to the TIP of the plug to be plugged into the OUTPUT of the EQ channel. A second cable ties teh RING of the insdert jack into the TIP of a plug that lugs in the INPUT of the EQ. You need two of these special cables for stereo operation.

Hi, I don't know how to hook up the compressor and the graphic equalizer to my Mackie mixer. A diagram would be appreciated. Thank you!


There are so many possibilities for connection it is not practical to try other than a very cursory explanation.

The first thing is WHAT channels (usually only microphones) do you want to have the compression on?

Then do you want the equalizer for all the output, or jsut parts of it. for all channels you cn take the outputs iof the board to the equalizer, and the output of the EQ to your power amps.
NOTE: all these interconnect should be balanced connecs either TRS or XLR cables.

For the compressor, you will probably select the mics into one of the SUB busses and send that to the compressor, then feed the output of the compressor back into the board on an auxilary channel input into the main mix...

For the mic channels you will NOT have the L-R button selected, but instead the desired Sub Buss.

Sending diagrams are near impossible on this system...

Fruity loops old version with casio keyboard


You haven't said whether or not you are using a demo ,version of FL. If you purchased they have Lifetime Free Updates here:http://flstudio.image-line.com/documents/lifetimefreeupdates.html If you didn't purchase, try downloading the newest demo version here:http://flstudio.image-line.com/documents/download.html Some features of demo programs become disabled after a certain time period. I don't know if midi device recognition is one of them for this program. Try hooking your keyboard up first, making sure that you have the correct drivers for the keyboard, your USB adapter etc. Then start FL and see if the program lists your keyboard in the midi device list.

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.

Popping sound through sound system speakers


make sure that the trim (gain) isnt set too high on your keyboard's PA channel. it might just be clipping due to input levels that are too hot.
