Yes you can. You will need to set one device to send midi clock and the other to receive midi clock. Then attach via the appropriate "out to in" sockets with one midi cable. I found this information on page 49 and 50 of Maschine manual v1.5.

There is a Synthesia (or a Linux variation - Lynthesia). It will do exactly what you want, will allow you to select a midi file, practice the notes, then practice the rythm, then practice altogether rythm+notes in a final melody. Each step of practice might be separated by hands (practice left-hand only or right-hand only). It can hide some instruments and ...

The chart you have is useful, but the way they put the staff is slightly confusing. The lower octaves (lower frequency pitches) have the lower numbers and on this chart the lower octaves are on top which is odd. Here is a slightly better chart that tells you where all the C's lie on the grand staff and what octave they are in: From your score, you can ...

The D after the "start here" arrow is "D4" (MIDI note 62). Higher notes in the sheet music (which will have larger numbers) are confusingly located lower on the chart (which is why the staffs are upside down). You'll also need to know that the "F#" (pronounced F-sharp) is located on a black key, between F and G. The MIDI numbers for the white notes vs. ...

I assume that you have already checked the manual of your Yamaha keyboard and it states that it can be used as a MIDI keyboard. I am not sure about Cubase but it works fine with NUendo. And someone has told me that Cubase and Nuendo iterfaces are same. Try the following Add an Instrument track, then Select one of the available synths.e.g. Embracer Now under ...

In Sibelius, you can open MIDI file, ask to show the keyboard view and while replaying, the keyboard view shows keys being pressed and the sheet view highlights the notes being played. Even free demo version can do this (nothing can be saved, however). MuseScore seems lacking the keyboard view but definitely can convert MIDI file into sheet music, and ...

Pure speculation on my part but from what I know about the 555 chip a "gunshot" is a pretty easy sound to make with a basic electronics setup. After a siren it's one of the first sounds people make when they're learning how to create sound effects using electronics. For instance: http://www.555-timer-circuits.com/machine-gun.html

I can't comment on why the committee decided on those particular sounds as I wasn't there, but I will say that gunshot sound effects are very common in musicals, and until recently it was common for any kind of timing sensitive sound effect to be in a synthesizer book. Now we have laptops and software like QLab so it's more practical for it to be fired from ...

The General MIDI sound set was influenced by what was implemented by existing sound modules. Since musicians were expected to program their synthesizers anyway, the application where standardization of a sound set would make the most sense was games. At that time, the most widely used device was the Roland MT-32 or its compatible modules. The original MT-32 ...

The MIDI Manufacturer's Association released the General MIDI Specification for hardware sample players and sample-based keyboard synthesizers in 1991. Read about it at the Wikipedia article, which includes reference links to the actual published specifications. I do not think there is a definitive answer to your question. I believe the industry committee ...

Alternatively, you could look for software that imports MIDI files and automatically transcribes them to sheet music. This is quite common for guitar, like Guitar Pro which also has a sheet music display. You might try: http://midisheetmusic.sourceforge.net/ or http://musescore.org/ This approach, of course, implies a more traditional way of learning than ...
