Question about Creative Labs Computers & Internet

Open Question

I used Orchestrator Plus software with a Casio CT-670 keyboard to control both the Creative labs MIDI sounds as well as the CT-670 sounds via a MIDI in/out cable connected from the keyboard through a joystic port on the PC. I now have a Windows 7 64-bit, and it appears that there may be MIDI cables that will connect my keyboard via USB to my PC. However, I can't seem to locate any software "like" the voyetra Orchestrator Plus for this application. It allowed me to create my own MIDI files and edit them. My sound card is a Creative SB X-Fi with MIDI capabilities. 1. Is there a MIDI cable that will connect my CT-670 from the keyboard in/out to my Windows 7 64-bit PC via a USB connction? 2. Is there software that will run on my machine that is similar to the Orchestrator Plus software? Thanks for any information.

SOURCE: Problem with Windows XP recognizing Creative Sound Card

It sounds like a software problem. Though you did the right thing by entering the bios & disabling the onboard sound. That should have been enough. Did you uninstall the old intergrated sound drivers before adding the 24bit card? Just about all the drivers & upgrades for your 4600 through Dell is Creative software & thats why your having a tough time. I would put everything back to how it was. Re-enable the intergrated sound & reboot! Run system restore & check that every thing is running right!! Look at this dell web site for the sound drivers you have at this link:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_P4_4600&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
If you must, install a upgrade for your intergrated sound. Just so you can uninstall it after a reboot. Re disable the sound in the bios. Do not install your new card yet. While back in windows device manager you should be missing a PCI device. Shut down install the new sound card. Hopefully windows will want the drivers & all runs fine. If still no it could be a bad card (i know what your thinking but it's possible). The only thing left is the regestry is using the wrong PCI device.

well the ports on the card could be shot and the card might have been installed by a person with a static charge built on thier hands without them knowing, which can cause the card's electronics to fry and be ALMOST completely disabled. try using a different mic or taking the card out and re-installing it.

Try downloading MidiOx and troubleshooting with it. It will show you if you have any midi activity and which channel your Casio is transmitting on etc.

How link my electronic keyboard MK 939 to compurer? what drivers are necesary?


I see the MK 939 has a midi out port. This can be connected to a midi in port on your computer via a usb to midi connector ( as shown in picture)davemello_1.jpg

Usb connectors have built in drivers so all you do is plug in, select the usb-midi device in music software.
A reasonably cheap one can be found here

OR

Connect keyboard via a soundcard eg soundblaster fatality with built in midi portsdavemello_0.jpg

Have a casio px 320 and trying to use it in GarageBand on my Mac OS X. Connecting USB cable from USB output on Casio to USB input on Mac doesn't work. Any help?


use the audio output to send the keyboards internal patch sounds, or use a usb midi adapter to use the keyboard to trigger the garageband midi sounds, if the keyboard has a midi output, that is. the usb output requires software drivers to use, and IS NOT mac compatible. You may have to select a midi source in garage band preferences or settings if you are using midi.

Casio Privia PX-120 cannot be connected to Reason or FL


When you are using midi the sounds from your keyboard aren't sent anywhere. What happens is control messages are sent over the midi cable from midi out to midi in on the other device which must have midi sounds on it (in your case the sound card) to make any sounds. The messages can be things like note on/of or pitch bend etc. If you want to send messages to produce a result on your laptop and still here something you can loop the messages by running from midi out on the device end ( your laptop) back to midi in on your keyboard. A much better explanation is available here:http://www.indiana.edu/~emusic/etext/MIDI/chapter3_MIDI.shtml I also signed up to this site (its free) that has great people and lots of info:http://www.recordingreview.com/ I recommend downloading Killer Home Recording setting up which at this time is also free and has the best advice you could want in it. I'd also recommend checking out Reaper which is comparable to Reason, Cubase or Protools. If this helps please let me know.

Hi need sound


Certain early models of the Sound Blaster cannot do both MIDI input and wave (audio) output at the same time. Thus, if you've selected "Creative Labs" as a MIDI In device in Cakewalk’s Options | MIDI Devices dialog, wave audio output won't work. Note that MIDI output will work fine along with wave audio output: you can select Creative Labs from the list of MIDI Out devices. The problem occurs only when you've selected the Creative Labs MIDI In device.

Hope that helps!
