Weather Report MIDI operates on the same basic principle. The transmitting instrument sends MIDI data on a speciﬁc MIDI channel (MIDI Transmit Channel) via a single MIDI cable to the receiving instrument. If the receiving instrument’s MIDI channel (MIDI Receive Channel) matches the Transmit Channel, the receiving instrument will sound according to the data sent by the transmitting instrument.
In order to use the instrument with a computer via a USB connection, you will need to install an appropriate USB-MIDI driver. You can download the proper driver from our website: http://www.yamaha.co.jp/download/usb_midi/ Compatible versions are available for: Windows XP Professional/Home Edition/Me/2000/98, and Mac OS X 10.2 –...
Precautions when using the USB connector When connecting the computer to the USB connector, make sure to observe the following points. Failing to do so risks freezing the computer and corrupting or even losing the data. If the computer or the instrument freezes, turn the power to the instrument off or restart the computer.
Appendix Troubleshooting Problem The CP33 does not turn on. A click or pop is heard when the power is turned on or off. Noise is heard from the speakers or headphones. The overall volume is low, or no sound is heard. The Sustain pedal has no effect.
