MIDI Keyboard - Connecting Casio Keyboard to Lenovo Z51 Laptop

Q: MIDI Keyboard - Connecting Casio Keyboard to Lenovo Z51 Laptop

Hey guys!

I recently got a Casio keyboard, with a new MIDI cable.

I'm a music artist and I'm totally new with this 'keyboard-to-computer-via-MIDI' stuff.

I don't know how to connect my Casio Keyboard to my computer with a MIDI cable. I've mostly been using Mixcraft's music library, but I want to start something new with my new keyboard.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how I can connect my keyboard to my laptop via MIDI?

I've looked at other forum posts and contacted a few music artists..........they had nothing.

Please help!

Thanks!

My son has been using a Casio keyboard along with the Finale music composition software with Windows XP. We have switched to Windows 7 (64 bit) and have a compatibility problem-- Casio says that none of their products support 64 bit. However, we have seen a Casio keyboard at Costco that says on the box that it supports Windows 7 64 bit. What we would really like is a 64 bit MIDI driver that would permit us to use the existing keyboard with Windows 7. Any suggestions?

Hi:

Problem: Canít receive music from my Casio WK-1630 keyboard to my PC using Microsoft XP.

Sending audio midi file from my keyboard to PC successfully, according to my manual. Problem is on computer receiving end. I don't know what to do next.

Audio software: Acid 4.0 and Soundforge 1.1

Instructions in both have no reference to how to receive midi files. I tried using the new MS Player 10 (with new recorder capabilities), and the standard MS Recorder. I just can't find any reference on how to receive keyboard or other device input and save it as a file. If I can get to that point, I know how to use the software.

Note: Device manager did show a midi device until I upgrade my operating system from MS 2000 to MS XP. Now it's gone. DXDIG (XP diagnostics) say my midi device is connected and working but I don't know how to access it.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.
Kindest regards,
Maverick

Hi forum,

Hi,
I got your device information through the link below:
http://www.casio-intl.com/in/en/emi/mini/ma150/
In my opinion, it should be driver problem. If you were using MIDI port to connect to computer, please restart PC after the connection, then check if it could be work.
If no use, try to switch to USB port for test.
In addition, you may need to install its official driver firstly, please access to the link below to download and install the driver firstly:

So I finally am settling on a resolution for this problem I've been having with midi not working. So, I found out that my digital piano, a Casio Privia PX-120, has it's own driver, but the driver is only for 32 bit computers. My computer is a 64 bit. Casio does not have the 64 bit driver yet. So I need an alternative driver for my digital piano. BUT, the midi interface (USB-MIDI cable) I'm using has to be able to go with it also. I'm using a Yamaha USB-MIDI Interface UX-16.

So I need a driver for my digital piano that will be compatible with my Yamaha USB-MIDI Interface UX-16 cable. Thank you!

A:Casio Privia PX-120 needs driver to go with Yamaha USB-MIDI UX-16

Welcome to SevenForums

Since you have a 64bit system and Yamaha doesn't have a driver for it, one of the things you can try.

Go to device manager>click on the device>properties>details tab>drop down menu>hardware id.

Copy and paste the hardware id string into your browser and search fo a compatible driver that way.

Or post a snip of it on here and we can look.

You can also search the Microsoft catalog for one, but I'm thinking your going to have trouble with this one.

I currently have a Yoga 2 Pro laptop that has Bluetooth, 2 USB ports, 1 micro HDMI port, and a 3200x1800 resolution.

I want to connect it to a pair of desktop monitors (lower resolution) and a wired USB keyboard as effortlessly as possible (since I will be moving the laptop back and forth a lot). What hardware is needed to accomplish this?

Let's say I wanted to connect it to this EVGA dual-monitor stand (haven't purchased it yet), which appears to use two DVI inputs, would I need some dual DVI into HDMI adapter (if such a thing even exists)? Or would I be better off just trying to connect it to a laptop docking station?

If I don't go the docking station route, I would like to connect to my wired/USB keyboard via Bluetooth if possible. Just googling around came up with a few USB -> Bluetooth adapters (1, 2). Does anyone have any experience with these or better recommendations?

Lastly, will jumping from 3200x1800 resolution to something like two 1400X900 resolutions cause any issues? I don't care if the picture quality is lower on the monitors, but I do want to make sure they're working full-screen.

I have no experience connecting a laptop to normal desktop hardware in this way so I'd really appreciate any input or suggestions. If you have any hardware recommendations (including a docking station or better dual-monitor setup), I'd love to hear them. Thank you.
 

A:Solved: Connecting laptop to external monitors/keyboard

Take a look at Lenovo's USB 3.0 docks here, type your model in to get the recommended ones: http://shop.lenovo.com/ca/en/accessories/dock-port-replicators/
One USB cable will connect everything back to the Yoga.

The converting to Bluetooth makes no sense, you're just adding more devices and hassle. A simple USB hub would be better if you didn't go for a full dock. Connect the wired mouse and keyboard to the USB dock or buy a new Bluetooth keyboard/mouse.

Once you undock the Yoga's screen should kick back in and work at it's supported resolution.

Hi there! I have a Labtec Wireless Desktop Keyboard/Mouse Combo. Now, I know it says "Desktop" in its name for a reason, but I'd like to use this combo for my laptop if it's possible. The combo comes with a 25 Ghz wireless receiver (2 PS/2 Port), a wireless keyboard, and a wireless mouse. I connected the wireless receiver to my desktop which is very close to my laptop. Then, I connected my mouse and keyboard with the receiver. On the receiver, there is a light called "Act". Whenever I press any key on keyboard or click my mouse, that light blinks so we know the combo is connected to the receiver;however, both keyboard or mouse don't work. I have Windows 7 on laptop and Windows XP on desktop if that helps

Also, my Desktop is very close to where I usually use my laptop so frequency range shouldn't be a problem (right?)

Is there additional steps to be taken next?

I know you can use PS/2 to USB wire, but is there any other way?

I am considering getting rid of my CME-UF5 Midi keyboard since there is no possibility of running it under Windows 7 and purchasing something new.

Anybody have any suggestions as to what I should be looking at? Besides this make, and M-Audio I really don't know what my other options really are. Although I did like the quality and weight of the keys with CME vs M-Audio, I suspect M-Audio would have much better driver support and customer support for future updates, CME was certainly lacking in this department considering they didn't even provide a Vista driver for this damn thing. I browsed through forums and it seems that someone had created their own Vista driver for it by modyfing the XP one while others claimed that due to the hardware inside this keyboard, there would be no way to run it outside of an 32bit XP environment.

Why would you think this? MIDI is MIDI and the model keyboard you have is irrelevant. It's all about the MIDI interface you have. If you are using an old interface through a game port you just need to upgrade to a USB port interface or purchase a card that has MIDI ports built in like some of the M-Audio cards do. If you buy a new keyboard and use the interface that doesn't work with Win7 you'll be wasting money.

I have an old windows 98 computer and am trying to connect a MIDI keyboard to it. The trouble is, the keyboard just isn't being recognized and used by my sequencer program, Jazz++ (www.jazzware.com). The soundcard is an on-motherboard ESS Solo-1, and I am using an intelligent game port to midi in/out cable. I have installed the drivers off the disk that comes with the motherboard, and midi playback through the line out (speaker) port does work. I've tried messing about with a few other drivers, but no luck.

I have a Roland PC-200 mkII midi controller connected to the PC via a MIDI to USB converter. The system claims to recognise it, and sets up a USB2.0-MIDI device with two hardware items: USB Composite Device and USB2.0-MIDI (sound, video and game controllers).

The keyboard is recognised - and sends MIDI signals. However, it will only send one at a time now, meaning it will only play single notes rather than chords. This is independent of whatever programme runs with it, indicating that it's a problem between the keyboard and Win7. The keyboard worked properly on Vista32 and previously on XP.

My mobo will not accept a direct MIDI (game port) connection, so I have no choice but to use the converter.

Am I missing any settings in Win7?

A:USB-MIDI keyboard controller

hey

i hear what you're saying. i own two controller keyboards with a usb interface, as well as a digital piano with midi in/out.... yep, winxp worked great when i plugged in either my EST (or is it ESI? their logo is hard to read) 49 key controller, or my M-Audio 49 key controller. I can't vouch for vista - installed it once. hated it.

When I first started using windows 7 I thought wow, this new OS is great! much faster than vista, more intuitive blah blah, then i loaded up all my music software, vsti plugins etc, and the final bit - plugging in the m-audio usb keyboard. "searching for hardware" - at this point i thought oh-oh as i remember on xp it instantly recognised it. so i waited, thinking ok its a different OS, maybe it needs to dig deeper to find driver, then i was faced with the devastating news that the device was not functioning, let alone being recognised. FORTUNATELY however, i bought a piece of sh*t USB to MIDI IN/OUT dongle from ebay. it was very cheap, the wiring is way too thin but hey it did the job for my digital piano when i needed to, so NOW, regardless of which USB keyboard I use under Win7, I must use this gay dongle. As for your issue - the mono polyphony - weird. My advice? Hit ebay. Buy another one from hong kong, just not the one you got originally. If you want, I am happy to provide a photo of the one i have - which works wonderfully and yes, it has full polyphone (ie i can play chords).... sometimes its not worth the headaches of wait...

Hey guys,
I am running Win 2000, and just bought a MIDI Keyboard to control a music program. The keyboard hooks up USB. On install, it is installing and reconizing the piece as a USB device. However, in order for it to work properly, it is supposed to also reconize it as a MIDI/Sound device in the Device Manager. It's not doing that. In previous Win 9X, it would let you first search for hardware, and then if it didn't find it, it would let you find it manually. But in Win 2K it dosn't do that. Is there a way I can install this keyboard to have it reconize it as a MIDI device?

I have ran through the install instructions many times, and nothing's working.

Any ideas????

earlier today I messed up with the sound drivers. I haven't installed motherboard drivers or sound drivers, cause Windows XP seemed to work without them. Today I tried to update the driver, but the computer crashed during the update. I restarted and there was no sound. I did the "Rollback to previous driver" thing and got sounds back. I tried again to update the driver via Windows Update. Again it crashed. Again no sound. This time I couldn't rollback, because "no previous drivers have been backed up". So I had to find the motherboard CD-ROM under a ton of garbage. I inserted the CD-ROM and again tried to update the driver. There was no sign of any data transfer between the CD-ROM drive and the hard disk.

A:MIDI keyboard problem

update: It says this on some FAQ page:

Q: I am having a problem with MIDI sound and I have AC97 onboard sound.

A: The VIA WDM driver does not support playing MIDI files. The midi file is translated by Microsoft's SWMIDI driver. SWMIDI.SYS passes midi files to PCM data and then send it to portcls.sys for playing. So this is not a VIA WDM driver issue. People with MIDI file issues should contact Microsoft for advice.
Wow, if it can't even play MIDI files, what chances are there that it could detect a keyboard in the gameport. The information coming in is MIDI after all... or does it have any effect? I don't know, I'm a super-noob...

From past experience, music software often seems to have configuration issues. Start with the basics. Uninstall the app. Ensure your system/motherboard drivers are up to date. Then ensure you have the latest audio drivers. Reinstall the software and install any available updates.

Aside from that, contact the manufacturer. It is likely a conflict with audio card/drivers or a bug in the software.

Any suggestions?
 

A:Recording from a MIDI Keyboard onto a PC

I haven't used cool edit recently, but last time I did it was only a audio editor, not midi. To record midi from your keyboard you will need a midi sequencer. Personally I use cubase, but if you search there should be some freeware sequencers available.

hi,

2 days ago I bought a CME VX7 keyboard. This thing does not come in with a driver, instead it’s a plug and play. So, I plug it in to the computer using the accompanying usb cable, and then windows XP (SP2) detects it and recognizes that it’s a CME audio device. It is then listed in the device manager.

But here is the problem, it is only listed in the device manager, nowhere else. This keyboard has a built in sound card. In the store, the guy there tried it, and it worked, it was listed in the sound and audio devices, and it was visible in audio programs. However, for me it only appears in the device manager, and no where else. I tried many things, reinstalling drivers for motherboard, restarting million times, using different usbs, same results.

Could this be a plug and play problem? The plug and play enumerator is listed in the device manager. I tried installing SWENUM.INF, but didn’t help; I even reinstalled SP2, still no results. What should I do? Should I reinstall windows?

Thanks

What version of windows are you running?     If you have windows 8.1 or 10, there should be an Ease of Access icon in the lower right (lower left in Windows 8.1) of the login screen, and if you select that icon you can turn on the On Screen Keyboard (OSK.exe), and use your mouse to type in your password.     You should be able to access the On Screen Keyboard in Windows 7 as well by using the icon at the lower left of the login screen. Cheers,

I have a Lenovo Laptop IdeaPad, and I spilled water on the arrow keys yesterday. Now only about 10 keys on the entire laptop work, so I was wondering if there was anyway of fixing this without having to go out and buy a new keyboard, or if I should just replace the keyboard entirely? Thanks.
 

A:Lenovo Laptop Keyboard Not Working

If water was spilled on or in the keyboard theres not much that can be fixed on it. it will have to be replaced and checked out to make sure nothing else got damaged by the water such as the motherboard etc.

Hello I'm having some issues with my MIDI keyboard.

I use Ableton Live on my PC and I hook up a Alesis Q25 MIDI keyboard to it and I haven't had any issues using it until the last few days. Whenever I plug it in now it says the device isn't recognized and there's a Code 43 saying the device isn't working basically. There hasn't been any major changes with my computer over the last few days except that I got a new Logitech keyboard and mouse. So unless that somehow has messed with it then it happened randomly.

Here are my specs...
Windows 7 Home 64 bit

ASUS M5A97 LE R 2.0

AMD FX-4130 Zambezi 3.8GHz Socket AM3+ Quad-Core

HIS iCooler H775FS2G Radeon HD 7750 2GB 128-bit DDR3

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB

Rosewill Green Series 630 watt

I've tried to re-install the MIDI driver, I've tried updating my USB drivers, I've checked for driver updates on the MIDI keyboard, I've tried installing new mouse and keyboard drivers, I've tried using Ccleaner to clean my registry and I've tried different USB ports. So I'm stumped.

No one has been able to help me yet on other forums I've tried so hopefully you guys can help. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Alesis Q25 MIDI keyboard Code 43

I have a home studio, using Sonar X3 (and ProTools).

When you reinstalled the MIDI driver, did you uninstall the old driver and restart the PC BEFORE reinstalling? If not give that a shot.

Another thing to try, connect the keyboard, go to the Device Manager and the device (with the error code). RIGHT click on the entry for the Device and then LEFT click "Uninstall". Disconnect the keyboard from the PC and then Restart the PC. After Windows starts, connect it and Windows should detect it and reinstall it as a "new" device.

Hello again,

I have a Yamaha YPT-300 model keyboard that I am attempting to hook up to my Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit machine via a MIDI-to-USB cable. (The cable came with this eMedia USB MIDI Keyboard Interface Kit.) The drivers for the USB/MIDI cable installed without issue, but my system does not appear to recognize the Yamaha keyboard. I attempted to install the Yamaha USB-MIDI driver, but it raises an error. ("Error 25001. No device is connected. Connect a device, and try again.") The MIDI/USB cable has two lights that blink when everything's working properly; one of the lights is blinking, the other is not. The light that isn't blinking appears to be related to the plug for the MIDI IN jack on the keyboard, if that helps.

Some of the simpler stuff ... I've got the MIDI IN and MIDI OUT cables plugged into the right jacks on the keyboard. (i.e., the MIDI IN plug goes to MIDI OUT jack, and vice versa -- it makes sense when you think about it.) The cables are not loose. I've googled all around for an answer, but I've found nothing but dozens of topics with no solutions or topics addressing something else altogether. And yes, I have tried turning it off and on again.

This may not even be a Windows 7 issue specifically, but poking around Windows 7 a bit, I can't even seem to find the controls for MIDI volume that always used to be available in WinXP. I even tried this MIDI Tool meant for Windows Vista. But nothing seems to help. Does anyone have any experience... Read more

A:Yamaha MIDI Keyboard Issue

Hi, I have the same issue you described.
Can you tell me if your procedure, beyond allowing to use the Musicsoft Downloader, enables also the general midiin/out capabilities (for instance, can I use my keyboard with a software such as Cubase as an input?).

Thanks in advance for your answer.

PS: when you say "plug" or "unplug" the keyboard, you are referring to the midi cables, aren't you?

Hi! I bought this one 2  days ago and I'm amazed how bad the keyboard is. Just check the video:https://youtu.be/n4oN6H3x2nQThe keyboard actually doesn't match the photos: enter key is weird form and there are two \ keys. Space key sticks depending on which part of it you click. It also makes a weird noise. Definitely not the quality you expect from a premium model. I would actually be happy to return it, but I'm in another country for a while so looks like I'm in trouble. This is the second Yoga I have, but seems that I will never buy a Lenovo again.

A:Lenovo Yoga 710 - the worse laptop keyboard ever

Yeah, you see a lot of complaings about those keyboards, they are trying to make them too thin in you ask me. I would return it if you do not like it, even if you have to pay shipping.   The Thinkpad line have much better keyboards, and in my opionion are far more durable too.  Good Luck,

So I've been asked to give my Mom a hand with her laptop. It's a Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13, though the website seems to drop or parenthesize the IdeaPad part of that, running a 64 bit version of Windows 8.1

Two keys aren't working, the F12/increase screen brightness key and the PrintScreen key. (This is why we just discovered it, no idea when the error cropped up.) I've found workarounds for all of the things the keys do - brightness can be adjusted in Power Options, and the F12 and PrintScreen functions can both be duplicated using the on screen keyboard function. But they're kinda annoying and cumbersome, and the error may be symptomatic of a larger problem.

I've tried rebooting the computer and cleaning the keyboard thus far, to no avail (though it is using one of these stupid new chiclet keyboard styles, which makes popping off keys and cleaning the actually functional part of the keyboard impossible through the normal, convenient method I've used in the past.)

The keyboard was replaced relatively recently, and I will be getting in touch with the gentleman who handled that when his store is open tomorrow. I'll also be checking with the official tech support people at Lenovo, but I find this and other fora are usually much better at cutting through that ploddingly systematic approach that big tech support divisions use and finding the real problem in a reasonable timeframe. If either of these resources pays off, I'll post the solution here as well.

Thank... Read more
