  Useable live?        Go on top to this Page

My (musical) keyboard is a piece of crap, with very pedestrian presets. I love the sounds that I can create in Psycle so...

I was wondering if

A) I can control the sounds that I create in Psycle with an external keyboard (yamaha psr-290)?

B) It is possible (or advisable) to use these sounds in a live setting (just playing the sounds without using the sequencer to create songs)?

If so, would I need one or two midi cables? Would the sound come out of the computer or the keyboard?

I read some of the faqs, but but I found them a bit confusing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

hello and welcome!
i don't know about yamaha psr-290 but if it is a midi keyboard you can easily control your psycle with it.
you can of course use psycle for live music or dj session,you can also make some jingles and play live around them at the same time or use it just for introducing some music for example in some mixed tracks you can insert a special fx or play an instruments or a drum....there are endless way to use psycle imho!
concerning midi cables i'm not sure about the cables because i use usb connection,maybe they are 2
of course the sound will come out from the computer.

CHEERS MfM

First of all, yes, you can.

Next, Psycle only supports midi Input, so you really only need to send midi to psycle, not receive it. (one cable)
Of course, this implies that the sound comes out from psycle, and your soundcard.

Your keyboard uses standard midi connectors, but i see in the manual ( http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/emi/...ort/PSR290E.pdf )
"When connecting to a computer with a USB interface, use the Yamaha UX16 USB/MIDI Interface. Connect the UX16 and the computer with a standard USB cable, then make the proper MIDI connections between the PSR-290 and the UX16."

If the package includes it, use it, else, I guess you' will have to use the standard midi cables that go into the the game/midi port, or into the dedicated midi connector (if your soundcard has any of them).
Then, you would select in psycle the standard "Midi Input".
(in the Configuration, inputs )

Nowadays, keyboards connect via the USB port, which simplifies enormously all these, and creates a dedicated port for them. This means that in psycle you could select the keyboard.

Finally, in psycle, you will have to disable the checkbox in the configuration that says:" Enabled: sequenced with...."
