Your USB/MIDI interface is this model: which does not work: not only does it garble any messages using running status, but it also corrupts SysEx messages. Buy any other USB/MIDI adapter.

Windows asks if what I am plugging in is a headphone or "speaker out". I would have expected you had three options, not the two that you mentioned: "headset", "headphones", and "speaker out". The "headset" option should let you record sound, but... Like many laptops, according to this page https://www.asus.com/sg/Notebooks/UX51VZ/specifications/ your ...

If you want your kids to practice a lot, it would probably be best to get an acoustic piano, and then transcribe into piano role on your computer (I use FL Studio, so using piano roll w/ mouse and keyboard is very easy, and I recommend it). Now, if you really want to play directly from piano to computer, I know there are electric pianos that can easily be ...

If your daughter has to practise on it, the ideal would be to have an accoustic piano. Then, if you want to use it for electronic music maybe you can have a look at pianos with "silent" mechanism. I know Yamaha makes them; I don't know about other brands, but probably they do also. They are normal accoustic pianos that incorporate a mechanism that, when ...

As technical exercises, you normally do scales, arpeggios and chord progressions. If you want to do a richer combination of those, like doing different things in different hands, etc... you normally don't do exercises, but play Studies. Czerny has hundreds of them, for different levels, and some of them might be useful for what you want. Problem is that ...

If you are trying to prepare a piece for performing, certainly taking a slowed-down look at it is not just "allowed" but advisable so that you can work out its intricacies. If, on the other hand, you are practising sight-reading corepetition (quite a different skill from prepared solo performing), the speed has to be correct right away, the articulation ...

If you are playing one section slower than the rest because of technical issues: no, you shouldn't do that. Of course you can do it when you practise, but then the goal is to improve it so that you are able to play it all at the same tempo. It's not that you can never change the tempo, but any change should be controlled, within the style (so in the case of ...

How do you know you actually played it slower than 'allegretto'? The term is quite vague, as in slower than allegro, which on one of my metronomes is 180 - 150 bpm.So, if you were at, say, 140bpm., then that would be a fair allegretto. Having said that, the tempo mark is there at the behest of the composer, Mozart, who, at the time, felt the need to give a ...

ORGANIZED TRÍO is the best VST, use it with your DAW (i use it with FL Studio), it comes with a demo mode window but after a few minutes playing its disappears and you can review the program and save your preset.

According to the manual http://support.casio.com/storage/en/manual/pdf/EN/008/CTK6000_WK6500_EN.pdf the USB port on the keyboard is for MIDI data only. That is consistent with Windows recognizing it as a MIDI port. The MIDI data transmits commands that say when notes start and end, but it doesn't transmit the audio that you want to record with Audacity. ...
