To transfer data via the computer’s serial port and the PSR-2000/1000’s TO HOST terminal, you need to install a speciﬁed MIDI driver (Yamaha CBX driver for Windows). The Floppy Disk that came with your PSR- 2000/1000 contains the compressed driver ﬁle “mididrv.zip.”...
Using the MIDI terminals When using a MIDI interface device installed in the personal computer, connect the MIDI terminals of the personal computer and the PSR-2000/1000 with standard MIDI cables. • When the computer has a MIDI interface installed, connect the MIDI OUT terminal of the personal computer to the MIDI IN terminal.
Using Your PSR-2000/1000 with Other Devices Now let’s examine what happens when we play back a recording. When you playback a music CD (for example, a solo piano recording), you’re hearing the actual sound (vibrations in air) of the acoustic instrument. This is called audio data, to distinguish it from MIDI data.
I Example Keyboard Data Voice number (with what voice) 01 (grand piano) Note number (with which key) 60 (C3) Note on (when was it pressed) Timing expressed numerically (quarter note) note off (when was it released) Velocity (about how strong) 120 (strong) Panel operations on the PSR-2000/1000, such as playing the keyboard and selecting voices, are processed and...
Using Your PSR-2000/1000 with Other Devices As you can see, it is essential to determine which data is to be sent over which MIDI channel when transmitting MIDI data (page 146). The PSR-2000/1000 also allows you to determine how the received data is played back.
