  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. 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?
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Hello everyone. Can someone please explain how to convert yamaha sty files to casio MIDI for my Casio Privia PX-150?
  7. hi everybody i'm a new owner of the xw-p1. i followed the instructions to get the xw-p1 control logic x via usb. I succeeded once, and then cannot work it out again. can anybody help me pls. Hicham
  8. 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,
  9. 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
  10. 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?
  11. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. Hi everbody ! Connecting MZX with other keyboars via MIDI connections ( MIDI IN / MIDI OUT) and trying to transmit or receive the clock signal to synchronize the rhythm , the MZ didn´t do nothing.... I tested both connections : MZ as master( MIDI OUT) or slave (MIDI IN) with other keyboards and brands that I have and only the tones are transmited or received. It´s a basic function that the first keyboards with midi connections did (like CT, CZ series). I really need to use this resource with my other keyboards but the MZx doesn´t work...... The 1.4 release contemplates this setting (clock) but setting on or off in the menu display, the situation doesn´t change. Someone can help, or test again to prove this problem ??? Perhaps a new release is comming and this specific problem could be solved, ok ?? Repeating....... It´s a basic, basic resource of the "old MIDI architeture" and the MZ needs to do this!!! Sorry because the text but I don´t speak english very well Waiting replyes , thanks a lot !
  18. Version 1.0.0


    This is my Stage setting for PX-5S, designed to control the Galileo organ app. I have mapped it in the following way, so that the PX will control the following things in Galileo: Slider 1: Upper drawbar 16' Slider 2: Upper drawbar 51/3' Slider 3: Upper drawbar 8' Slider 4: Upper drawbar 4' Slider 5: Upper drawbar 22/3' Slider 6: Upper drawbar 2' Knob 1: Upper drawbar 13/5' Knob 2: Upper drawbar 11/3' Knob 3: Upper drawbar 1' Knob 4: Vibrato on/off Pitch bend wheel: Pitch bend Mod wheel: master volume. I have set this for a range from 50 - 100 (I anticipate using it at about 50 but it is early days yet. Be sure to adjust it if necessary to how you want it.) Pedal 1: Rotary fast/slow Pedal; 2: Rotary brake This is my first venture into the realm of midi, and also my first attempt to properly map organ controls. Please let me know if I need to make any changes - especially if I have left out something important. I hope to end up with the definitive Galileo controller at some point......... I also hope it may be of some use to you.
  19. I am considering purchasing a PX560 but could use some help understanding it's midi capabilities and limitations. Though I've read it is not a Midi Controller, it see it does have midi in and out ports, and I've read it can be connected to a PC. I assume to use a software package like Sonar or the like, correct???? Sorry for the stupid question, but what functionality would this keyboard be lacking that one, like the PX-5S which IS a midi controller be capable of? Thanks in advance - as you can tell, I'm a newb
  20. Hi everyone! I need your help because I'm not able to set the PX5s as I want. Basically, in my Yamaha Motif's SONG I have programmed 3 channels in which the channel 2 is totally played by my Motif, the channel 1 is totally played by PX5s and channel 3 is layered with channel 1 on the PX5s but I would like that the CH 3 is enabled when I increase the slider number 1. I think that it's possible, but how can I do it? Thanks! Francesco
  21. I have Ableton Live configured to send MIDI to my PX-560 for playback. However, I can't figure out where in the PX-560 is the mapping between what tones are assigned to what MIDI channel. For example, when Ableton sends MIDI to channel 1, the PX-560 plays Grand Piano. Channel 2 plays percussion. Channel 3 plays Warm Pad. I've looked at the "MIDI Channel Assignments" table at the end of the User Manual but I'm not seeing the answer. What am I missing?
  22. Suddenly no midi out from my PX-5s. When I open Midi Monitor, it shows the 5s. But no note on and off. This is true whether I'm taking the signal from the midi ports or the USB out. Any ideas? JD Logic X Mac Yosemite
  23. Hi People! I recently purchased a PX5S and love this forum along with the Facebook page. It's been a huge help getting started. I am learning my way around, and finally starting to get the whole stage setting thing. I have a question. I have read that I can use a specific stage setting... say 1-0, that be be completely for MIDI and control MainStage. I was using MainStage before buying this keyboard, using a simple MIDI controller, and it was plug and play... very easy and never had to worry about MIDI channels or any of that. I am a complete idiot when it comes to MIDI, and would like someone to explain specifically in detail, how to set a stage setting so that I can jump to that, and have control of my MainStage concerts and patches using all the sliders and knobs on the PX5S. Again, I am new and don't know much about MIDI, so if you can, please give me step by step, or point me to where that step by step process exists. So far, I have not even got into any editing of stage settings, other than I know how to change tones. I use USB for the MIDI and have a Pre-Sonus Interface along with a Macbook Pro. I did find the download for the PX5S layout, and that's awesome. I just don't know how to set my PX5S to use it for MainStage. Thanks in advance for all the excellent and wise advice from all you experts out there in Casio Land. J-MO
  24. Hi guys, I need these function, to control FilterAmp Rate with the mod wheel. I don't know if it is possible. With standard control assigment for mod wheel there isn't this parameter. But maybe with RPN, nrpn, or something similar it is possible, but I'm not very shod in advanced midi. I read the midi implementation of px5 but I don't understand how to do. Thanks all
  25. Hi everyone, I'm new in this forum, recently I bought a Casio LK 280 to start playing piano, but I don't know if there is a midi secuence library to this keyboard, I tried download a diferent MIDI songs from the internet but the lightning key board doesn't light only plays the song. I configured the songs to the channel 3 and 4 but it doesn't work, so thats why ask you, if you know some songs for this keyboard that I can download? Thanks
