Using Your PSR-2000/1000 with Other Devices
6 Connecting to a Computer
(MIDI terminals/TO HOST
Connect your PSR-2000/1000 to computer and take
advantage of the wide range of powerful and versatile
software for creating and editing music. The PSR-2000/
1000 can be connected in three ways.
Using the TO HOST terminal
Using the MIDI terminals
Connecting to a USB terminal by using an optional
USB interface (UX series)
• You'll need an appropriate music/MIDI software program (such
as a sequencer), compatible with your computer platform.
• When connecting the PSR-2000/1000 to a personal computer, ﬁrst
turn off the power to both the PSR-2000/1000 and the computer
before connecting any cables and setting the HOST SELECT
switch. After making the proper connections and settings, turn on
the power of the computer ﬁrst, then that of the PSR-2000/1000.
• If you do not use the TO HOST terminal of the PSR-2000/1000,
make sure you disconnect the cable from the terminal. If the cable
is left connected, the PSR-2000/1000 may not function properly.
• When the HOST SELECT switch is set to "PC-1," "PC-2," or
"Mac," you can use the TO HOST terminal, but the MIDI connec-
tors are disabled since no data transfer occurs via the MIDI con-
nectors. On the other hand, when the HOST SELECT switch is
set to "MIDI," you can use the MIDI connectors, but not the TO
HOST terminal since no data is transferred via the TO HOST ter-
Note for Windows users (regarding MIDI
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." After extracting the ﬁle, execute the
installation by double-clicking on the "Setup.exe" ﬁle
in the "MidiDrv" folder and follow the on-screen
directions. In addition, you can download this driver
from the XG Library on the Yamaha Web site:
Using the TO HOST terminal
Connect the serial port of the personal computer (RS-
232C terminal or RS-422 terminal) to the TO HOST
terminal of the PSR-2000/1000. For the connection cable,
use the appropriate cable below (sold separately) that
matches the personal computer type.
If your system does not work properly with the connections and
settings listed above, your software may require different settings.
Check your software operation manual and set the HOST SELECT
switch to the proper data transfer rate. (Data transfer rate of "PC-1"
is 31,250 bps.)
