  1. Multitimbrality

    Hey, folks. I'm preparing to buy a PX-5S. primarily to have a great-sounding piano that I can tuck under one arm. One thing that is still unclear to me is how (if) it works as a MIDI sound module. Can it sound on multiple channels that are not in the current Stage setup? Are any effects available for incoming MIDI data? I have a nice 4-channel 61 note controller keyboard (with aftertouch and a volume pedal) that might be fun to plug into the PX, if there's anything to be gained by doing so. -Tom Williams (so new that I don't have a signature block defined yet)
  2. Hi everyone, 1.Can I use the Mixer/Drawbar Organ Sliders to mix in real time a played MIDI file? (Lower or increase a specific/individual channel volume). 2.I have a lots of MIDI files where… bass guitar (for example) is on channel 2. Is there a free software to easily change MIDI to default MZ channels? Channel 9 = Percussion Channel 10 = Drums Channel 11 = Bass Channel 12 - 16 = Accompaniment 1 thru 5 Because in the SMF import tool, I have to manually change the channels so the rhythm can be imported/heard/played successfully with all the instruments. Even when I play them in player, they sound funny (not right). See this Romanian folklore Batuta - Taraneasca.MID (play it on PC and MZ). 3.Besides renaming .sty to .mid and SMF import to MZ series, is there another way to import styles from other keyboards (aka Roland, Korg…). A software? Free maybe? Thx. Maur.
  3. Is there any way to send a MIDI file from my computer over the USB ports on both so that it will play on the CDP-130? In other words, I have a MIDI piano file on my Windows 7 computer that I want to hear played on my Casio digital piano. Any way to do that? Thank you in advance.
  4. Hello everyone, I'm a little stuck on how to transfer midi files to my keyboard. It doesn't have a usb port, but I have the midi ports. I'm confused as to how I can transfer Rhythm files to my keyboard from my computer. I have the files that I need, but I'm not sure how to copy the files over to my keyboard. Many thanks Sarah B
  5. I seem not able to find any help in the manual on how to use PX560 as a master MIDI controller. Any help would be really appreciated! Thank you in advance!
  6. I have a Privia PX-200 that I have owned for many years, but only played it as a standalone piano. I now have it in a MIDI studio setup and want to use some of the great sounds in my productions. Only thing is, it seems to be responding to every MIDI track (Cubase) that I create. There doesn't seem to be a way to select which channel it receives on - it takes in everything my MIDI thru box is putting out. For instance, I assigned a pad sound for my Juno 2 on channel 2 but the Privia is just playing the standard piano preset 1 along with it on this channel. Is there a way to defeat this? I noticed it will do the whole production for me if I assign instruments/channels in Cubase, which is cool, but I wanted to use my analog synths along with it too. Help!?
  7. Hello there I am recording my new stuff with Privia and doing it first time using MIDI recording section. Since I have no satisfactory VSTs on my PC, I'd rather use Privia's interface and then work on it further. I like to work on some tones but later I often change them, when all paths and items are recorded and put together to change overall sound and blend. So my questio is: Is there a way to CHANGE TONE OF ALREADY RECORDED 'solo track' in Privia's MIDI interface? It would be helpful as hell. I even hoped for changing in 'on fly' to hear how the tone changes the piece. But I cannot find answer in internet or manual :/ Thanks in advance
  8. Hi there! Confession up front - I'm a MIDI newbie. I'm trying to get my iPad (Onsong app) to fire off MIDI commands to my PX-560M to change the following based upon the song I pull up: Tone (Upper/Lower 1&2) Split Point Levels I know the MIDI connection is working fine but the tone change command doesn't seem to do anything to the keyboard. Here's the steps that lead to the problem: 1. Set Onsong to Listen for MIDI commands 2. Change tone on keyboard --> Corresponding command shows up in Onsong (so it definitely receives ok) 3. Turn off MIDI "Listen" in order to do a Test 4. Manually change Tone to something elese on keyboard 5. Click "Test" in Onsong (which fires the same command back to the keyboard) --> Result: Nothing happens. When I do the same process, but with Playing a note as the command, the test is successful and Onsong is able to play the note back through the keyboard. So I know the communication is fine. That means the problem must be around the other commands that don't seem to work when Onsong fires them off to the keyboard. Does the PX-560M support what I'm trying to do (in theory)? Are there any troubleshooting tools on the PX-560M to see what MIDI messages it's receiving? Am I missing some setting or something to allow these settings to be changed remotely via MIDI? Thanks for any help!
  9. I can't send MIDI messages to my DAW on my Privia PX-350M. The audio from the piano to the DAW plays and records fine. I hooked the MIDI DIN plugs to another keyboard and it sent MIDI messages to the DAW just fine. So there's no issue with the DAW. I've also tried disconnecting the DIN plugs from the Privia and just going with the USB MIDI, but still no transmission. Has anyone else run into this problem?
  10. What I'm trying to do using the 7200 is to record a tomtom drumbeat that I can export in a format that I can use on my laptop. Then I can use it as a background beat for my ukulele group. My problem is that I only use the various functions very rarely so I don't get the chance to familiarise myself with them. Consequently I find myself struggling (again) when I come to use them again. Think of the tomtom in the opening sequence of Apache. I have the voice that I want to use but I just haven't succeeded in recording a sequence of it. Yes, I've looked at the manual but all I got was a headache. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  11. Help with MIDI for lk280

    Hello, I bought the Casio LK280, I would like all the keys from the keyboard to light up, but until now not all the keys do so... and I tried to adjust the MIDI file, with changing channels to 3 and 4, but something went wrong. Does anyone have an idea what to do to make all the keys light up? Any help is appreciated, I am looking forward to learn to play this song (see the attachment). This is the version I didn't adjust. Thanks! 1_SHES_LIKE_THE_WIND.mid
  12. is it possible to use the xw as a controller for soft synths with studio one. I have it hooked up to a firestudio interface via the midi in out into my macbook pro. I can't seem to get it to work. the software receives midi signal but it won't play the instrument. Are there drivers that are needed? are there settings on the xw that need to be adjusted?
  13. WK 200 and iPad

    New here. Where can I go to learn how to set up my WK 200 to work with my iPad. GarageBand and other iOS apps? would like to experiment with midi but don't know where to start. Thanks in advance. Pete
  14. Roland A500 MIDI'd to PX5S

    I've just bought a Roland A500 Pro to hook up to my PX5S (and of course a DAW at some stage) and am starting to work on the basics of driving zones - so I've managed to play with setting the zones off/on for the PX5S but realising that, even when off on the PX5S, they can still be driven by the A500. But does anyone know if it is possible to assign a PX5s tone/stage setting to a channel other than 1-4 so that I can then drive that from the A500? In my limited logic, this would mean that I could assign up to additional "patches" to be driven by the A500. Or is it not as simple as that? I've exchanged some points on the FB page and it seems it may not be possible but just wondering if I can get a definitive answer here/ TIA, Kev
  15. Hello everyone. Can someone please explain how to convert yamaha sty files to casio MIDI for my Casio Privia PX-150?

  17. CDP-130 MIDI issues

    Hey everyone, I'm having some MIDI issues with the CDP-130. I am trying to send MIDI information from Ableton Live into the CDP-130. I have the keyboard set on the "strings" setting, however the "Grand Piano" sound is what is recorded in Ableton. The MIDI notes are reaching the keyboard properly, but the wrong sound is coming out. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Thanks for any and all help,
  18. Want to play a MIDI file from SD card through px-410r keyboard with the selected tone. I have the MIDI file playing from the card just fine, but it is using the "standard" MIDI synth sound. Want it to play using whatever tone is selected at the time, OR, let me choose what tone to play it through, such as 363, Space Voice 2, or 000 Grand Piano. Thanks for you help
  19. Hello all, I have a very old Casio CTK 611 with midi outputs. I have a midi cable to USB. When I plug it in the midi cable lights up, and my Win 10 computer does indicate that a USB2.0 midi device is connected, and my music program (Sibelius 7.5) sees that device, but I can not get Sibelius to receive midi input from my keyboard (the test fails). I am assuming that my keyboard is way too old to work with Win 10 and there probably are not any compatible drivers. I just want to be sure before I sink money in a replacement keyboard. The midi cable that I have is a Sanoxy USB MIDI Cable Converter and has a dual in/out 5-pin DIN and a USB on the other end. I have searched the internet for possible answers, and have not had success. Any ideas?
  20. This one has me completely stumped - I use my PX-5S as a controller and live instrument. The internal sounds are functioning great. I've got plenty of velocity curve to play with and can produce quite expressive sounds on a slightly tweaked Concert Piano Stage Setting. However, I've recently noticed that the sounds produce by PropellerHead Reason (some synths and a few pianos) feel muffled and muted as compared to when I use a different controller. And, oddly, when I hold down the sustain pedal, the sounds in Reason return to being clear, bright, and significantly louder. Here's what I've tried: 1. I tried numerous different custom and purchased patches in Reason. They are all exhibiting this problem. Therefore, I think it's the PX-5S. 2. I've tried a number of different stage settings on the PX-5S to see if it was something I accidentally triggered - nope. It occurs on a lot of them, even ones I didn't build or fiddle with. 3. I've tried different USB cables. Still does this. 4. I've disabled the internal sounds (local control) on the PX-5S. Didn't help. 5. I've disabled High Resolution Output. Didn't help. Other than my PX-5S is malfuntioning, any ideas guys? I can still use it to control Synths and Pads, as they are much easier to control with longer attacks, but this problem has made playing a midi piano of any kind impossible. Thanks in advance.
  21. I loaded a custom midi into my CDP-230R using data manager. The problem is when I hit the rewind button it always goes back to the start of the midi instead of back one measure. Anyone know how I can fix this?
  22. Hi All, I'm struggling working out the best way to setup triggering the px-5s drums from an external drum sequencer within a stage setting and was looking for some advice please. I've recently bought a drumbrute for live performance with the PX-5S. The drum brute has a global midi channel setting which I've set to 1. It seems to be limited to either send note data or not and this is done via the app rather than on the unit, so not convenient for switching on and off. Therefore, when I'm using the drum brute's sounds, it will trigger whatever tone is in zone 1 on the PX-5S. Of course, if I have a synth in zone 1 (when I'm not using the px drums) it will trigger that, which I won't want. I can configure the output note values from the drum brute, and I tried setting them to values >88 and setting the px KEY RANGE HIGH in zone 1 (for sounds I don't want the drum brute to trigger) to C8. The idea being that I would create drum kits on the PX with note values >88 and put them in zone 1 when I needed them. However, it looks like KEY RANGE HIGH only affects the actual keyboard and not the incoming midi (I guess the clue is probably in the name , therefore the synth sound will still trigger the higher notes from the incoming midi. Is there an easy way around this? I could dedicate zone 1 for all of my stage settings to drums, and only have a kit present in a stage setting when I need them. Is that the way I need to go, or can I stop sounds in zone 1 from being triggered by incoming midi for certain stage settings? Hope that makes sense. Thanks
  23. PX 860 won't talk midi to my Nav

    I can't get my new Px860 piano keyboard to register on my MacBook running OS 10.12.x (latest always ) in Notion. I have a connection to the PX 860 in the MIDI Utilitybut not from the 860 to the Mac. The Casio tech said the PX 860 was incompatible with the Mac after OS 10.9.x! MIDI doesn't change that much. I thought I saw people on here using the 760 with MIDI thru Windows 10. Are there ways to get the PX 860 to transmit to the latest Mac OS or do I have to send this otherwise excellent keyboard back?
  24. Hello everyone. This is my first time posting here, and I hope I have posted in the right place. So, my problem is that I own a CTK-519 piano that needs drivers in my computer in order to use a MIDI-USB connection cable. I have searched through google for the last 12 hours without any luck. I was hoping someone could direct me to the right direction. I am frustrated now. I desperately need the MIDI connection to work for the sake of an app that I am intending to use to practice playing. Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks all.
  25. Good morning everybody I would like to use my PX5s in live situation both as a stage piano and a master keyboard. At the moment I am using it only as a master keyboard controlling MainStage because I don't know: 1) how to to change stage settings on my Px5s from Maintsage (though I know I can send program change, MSB and LSB messages from it). 2) if possible, how to mute and activate the local sound generator from MainStage via midi message. In fact when I want to play Mainstage's plugin and VSTs the sound generator should be, of course, off. But when I want to play my PX5s sounds I should change stage setting (as requested in point 1) and at the same time, of course, activate the local sound generator. Could you suggest me a way to do this? PS I have also a Korg R3 and an iPad running through my PX5s line in connections...I am wondering what happen to their signal if I turn on and off the local sound generator...will I be able to listen to them?
