keyboard's midi in plays no configurable voice.

by Adam


I have an old Yamaha keyboard with these features
and specifications related to this question.
It features T.R Touch Response,
O.T.S One Touch Setting,
S.S.P Stereo Samples Piano and
Y.E.S.2 Yamaha's Education Suite 2
My keyboard has a 5-din midi jack pair for in and out,
and when I use the keyboard's out midi it works well,
but when I use a preset aka
"Programmable ONE TOUCH SETTING"
and use midi in, it does not respond to either the M voice,
nor D voice
nor S voice.
It always plays the same piano when midi is fed into the keyboard.
But these presets work using the physical keyboard exclusively.
This keeps me away from recording quantized or otherwise edited midi
I record and play during a recording of this keyboard, meaning I am locked with what I played LIVE.
Is there a way in the FUNCTION menu or any other interface,
to let me play my own ONE TOUCH SETTING sounds using external midi?

It sounds like you are trying to use external MIDI to trigger the "Programmable ONE TOUCH SETTING" sounds on your Yamaha keyboard, but it is not responding as you expect. I will try to help you troubleshoot this issue.

One thing to check is whether the external MIDI device is sending the correct type of MIDI messages to trigger the ONE TOUCH SETTING sounds. The ONE TOUCH SETTING feature on your keyboard likely uses specific MIDI messages to select and play the different preset sounds. Make sure that the external MIDI device is sending the appropriate messages for this purpose.

You may also want to check the MIDI settings on your keyboard to ensure that it is configured to receive and respond to MIDI messages correctly. You can access the MIDI settings through the FUNCTION menu or other interface on your keyboard.

If you are still having difficulty getting the ONE TOUCH SETTING sounds to play using external MIDI, it may be helpful to consult the user manual for your keyboard or contact Yamaha customer support for further assistance.

Hi! The MIDI in of the cable needs to be connected to the MIDI out of your keyboard. Connect the USB end to a computer's accessible USB port. You can now press the keys on your keyboard and look at the adapter's indicator to see if a MIDI signal is being sent. I hope that it will help you.
