Downloading user songs

by Matt M.
(Chicago)

How do I get songs *I* have recorded on my keyboard off of the keyboard's internal flash drive and onto my computer?

Have tried for hours, and searched online forums for more hours, but can find no answers.

-- MusicSoft downloader and midi software installed;

-- cables connected and connection confirmed;

-- am able to transfer a pre-loaded song from keyboard to computer, but can't locate any of my own (actually my daughter's) pieces;

-- When I click on the flash drive folder (in Musicsoft app) nothing appears.

Pulling out my hair. Have read many posts that say this just isn't possible, but that seems unbelievable: why would Yamaha let you record your own compositions, but then prevent you from transferring them to your computer?

Any help would be deeply appreciated. I love Yamaha products, but this one has me baffled.

recording to make CD
by: Dick Rector

Hi Folks,

Don't make it so difficult!!!
Recording songs -THE MUSIC- that is!! from the keyboard into a pc is a piece of cake!

If you want to transfer the MIDI-songs you have recorded, from the keyboard to the PC and make it audible and save it for example as WAV or MP3 to make a CD or whatever, you need only a simple cable and the free programs AUDACITY and LAME.
Send me your email-address (NOT ON THE FORUM) and I will send you a step by step letter how to do that. It is simple and it is fun. But this letter is too large to put on the forum as it contains also a few example pictures.

recording User songs
by: Jeremy

I have some songs I recorded on my DGX 505, and what I have done is use the sound recorder on my laptop. I use a standard audio cable and connect through the microphone input. Start the recorder, and then the recorded music, stop when finished. not the Greatest way, but if you have other software at least it gives you something to work with.

Matt,

User songs are saved in the USER area. After that you can save/transfer them onto a stick, card or drive and empty the user area as the memory is very limited.
You will not see the recorded songs on the stick before you have saved them there.
Go to the user area and IF the songs are saved you will find them there.

Regards
Dick
