Yamaha S90 midi/USB ???
I have connected a Yamaha S90 with an USB cable to my PC. After installing
the drivers there are some midi ports available in Windows. Now I try to
produce some sound from the S90 to my PC or I try to play a midi file from
my computer on the Yamaha S90. But nothing happens at all.
- How can I use the yamaha to send midi notes to my computer? (to record
with an external program like cubase).
- Is it possible to send midi files from my computer to the internal
storage of the S90? (I also have a smartmedia card installed)
Thanx in advance for your replies!
...yamaha shs 10e and midi channels
I've just started using an old yamaha shs 10e to send midi signals to
my keyboard. Does anyone know which channels the shs 10e uses for its
pitch bend, sustain, tremelo etc'.
any help appreciated.

I'm playing around with an old Yamaha QY-20... I'm having no problems
sending commands (from a microcontroller to the midi input) for
playing notes and setting which voice to use. I was hoping to be able
to trigger the patterns (i.e., drum riffs) through the midi input, but
I'm now thinking that it isn't possible.
I've spent some time reading the data format document (which isn't
particularly clear in its information)... and I'm now thinking that
the SysEx commands are only for triggering data dumps. The document is

I connected my Yamaha PSR E313 to my PC through M-Audio MIDI to USB
cable. I am able to play music and record MIDI through Ableton Live.
But the velocity of each note recorded in Ableton is very low, i.e.,
80 . I tried disabling touch response, harmony, reverb etc. in my
keyboard, but the velocity is recorded as 80. I tried the same thing
in FL Studio 6. Here too, I got low velocity recording for each key
pressed in my keyboard.
Is there a setting in Yamaha PSR E313 to increase the MIDI velocity
for each note (say 120) ? Or, is this something to do with the MIDI
cable? Any advi...Yamaha MU-90R MIDI ports
I recently purchased an MU-90R, hoping to use it as not only a tone

...Yamaha DD55 MIDI receive problem
I'm trying to set up my Yamaha DD55 drum pads (actually a more recent model,
the DD55c) to work with MIDI properly. I've got it connected to my PC's
Creative Live!Drive via a pair of MIDI-to-MIDI leads, and I've also tried
using a MIDI-to-gameport lead, but the results are the same.
My sequencing software (Acid Pro 4) picks up data from the DD55 fine. But
it's the playback that's the problem. Either it plays back using through

horrible default percussion kit (channel 10). In ot...Yamaha PSR280 in combination with USB MIDI cable...

However, I tried to use the MIDI in to take over the bpm of Cubase SX

I setup my Cubase that it sends out MIDI Clock to my MIDI port (LED is

We have a Yamaha PSR-290 keyboard, and have just bought a UX16 midi
interface which I naively thought would make it easy to transfer midi
files to and from the keyboard and PC (notably, recording songs played
on the keyboard to memory, and then sending them to the PC for storage.
Yamaha's Songfiler utility seems to make it easy to send midi files
from PC -> keyboard, but not in the other direction AFAICS.
Surely that can't be right?
Anyone using this keyboard managed to solve it?

...Midi out problem with Yamaha EZ-30 and OPL3-SA card
Hello. Hopfully sombody can help me out with this. I've got a Yamaha
EZ-30 keyboard and an ordinary computer with an OPL3-SA card. When I
play the keyboard the sound can be heard in the computer, but it
doesn't work the other way round - no sounds from the keyboard when
playing something in the computer. I've already tried two different
cables, incluiding an interface that follows the specs outlined in the

computers (Acerpower SK), and nothing helped. As I said, it works

I've written some simple Perl scripts that can analyze midi Note On
data to see how closely they match an input template over, say, 8
beats. The idea is to study my timing / consistency as a keyobard
player, and see if I can tighten up my timing. Say I'm trying to
play straight quarter notes. I will create a template of quarter
notes over a single measure. My scirpts will take a MIDI file as
input, fit each Note On data to the nearest quarter note, and continue
over all the measures until I end up with 4 distributions, one for
each quarter note. At each distributio...Yamaha DGX-205 Keyboard & Linux usb-midi

Can anyone give me a straight way of doing this? I shall be using an
Edirol UA20 interface which has one in and one out. The QY70 has in and
out and the Yamaha keyboard only an out. So I'm puzzled. Could the
keyboard go out into the QY70 which goes out into the UA20. But how
would I then get MIDI back from my Mac to the QY70? This is driving me
nuts, so please help someone. Would I need to use a second interface
(which on the Mac cna also go to a serial port)?

Hi, I'm trying to use a Yamaha P-120 KB with a Audiotrak MidiMate
USB/MIDI adaptor in Garageband but I cannot for the life of me figure
out how to use the KB with Garageband.
A new MIDI input is detected by Garageband when I plug in the MidiMate
connected to the KB, but I cannot see where to go from there. MidiMate
has zero useful help (it just says create a software instrument and
start playing - well that doesn't work!) on this matter and I'll be
damned if I can find anything online.

"No MIDI input"
Why does my computer hate me so much ?

Why is Apple making this so hard? There's no useful info at all.

I am trying to get OMS to recognize my synth modules with no success.
OMS is loaded properly on my G4 (I know the standard MIDI interface
driver is there...the one that should work with my Midiman MacMan
serial port MIDI interface). All my modules are hooked up to two Yamaha
MJC* MIDI interfaces in serial, but when I create a new Studio Setup in
OMS, the search sees nothing there. The serial to USB connector is one
by Belkin, and I loaded its drivers into the G4...still no cigar.
