Advertise on the most comprehensive and widely viewed musicians’ website. Help me Obi-Wan Kenobis. I have connected it to Garageband and got it to record. I own one, I’ve done it, but the internal sequencer memory is only 1. I’ve been using a USB cable to connect them. If I could get four voices over the full range then I can make them work on different midi channels..

And yes, manuals can be confusing, but they typically have most or all of the answers if you’re willing to exercise a little patience and invest the necessary time.

I guess I should have kept my midl a bit more specific regarding what my keyboard should do or not do. You’re my only hope! The manual is pretty rubbish in that area.

Expanding on that, you have two types IIRC. It’s not in the manual.

Midi Settings—basic Operation – Yamaha CP Owner’s Manual [Page 64]

I’m new here to the forum and new to using computers mldi keyboards and need some serious help with basic questions. The only way I can think of to do two voices and two other zones only transmitting midi data would be a workaround that will not be found specifically in the manual.

Then you could just use that for your backing tracks and plug it into the CP’s internal speaker inputs if you wish for a nice combo. I must say, having played a Roland RD they manage this much better with buttons under the sliders, but perhaps I’m just missing something. I’ll mici some reading on it. Yamaha does make software for transferring SMF files to it’s mido memory – but here’s the kick in the teeth – it’s for Windows XP only.


Plug a midi cable from the CP midi out jack to the CP midi in jack. View the Media Kit.

You may need to install CPspecific software – consult the manual. DerekparametricMivi. If you’re looking just to “do something with MIDI,” well mostly programs like GarageBand and Cubase are used to create your own songs or arrangements of other people’s songs and then play them back using the sounds in your keyboard s.

Thank you all for the reply.

The other has 16 tracks, and 16 instruments. Since SMF’s can be pretty small you can put a dozen or more files in there but not enough for a gig. How can I do this?

Now for two internal and two external voices, this work around may be possible at mldi according to how I read and interpret the manual.

The CP is a superb piano but Yamaha cut it off at the knees in terms of midi file playback capability and they didn’t bother with putting anything about how to load files into the mjdi memory in the owners manual to save the embarrassment of admitting the sequencer memory is so small.


Thank you again Pro for being patient with a newbie, even though I’ve been mudi the piano for 27 years. My Kurz can only read Type 0 with it’s current OS.

Type 0, and Type 1. This means that the files can’t be shared between different platforms. I own one, I’ve done it, but misi internal sequencer memory is only 1.

Have you installed the driver? I believe an upgrade allowed it to read Type 1s.

I’ve managed to get four voices at once, but only two on each half of the split point My question is therefore, can I have the following configurations, and if so.

In theory this should be doable and work, read the sections of the manual closely that pertain to editing functions and setting up zones. I have connected it to Garageband and got it to record. Set up a four zone performance with the mici two being the two voices you want to use, set up the other two zones with voices that you don’t want and assign their volume settings to zero and with different midi channels than your other two voices.

We’ve had a CP for a while and you can set up voices for each zone, the owner’s manual should detail this my setups are splits or single voices, so I have not done c300 yet, but it should be possible.
