Most sequencers, whether those that operate as computer programs or those that operate in keyboards themselves, save files in a proprietary format. Lastly, you’ll be more likely to get help on boards such as this if you come armed with specific questions, as well as some evidence that you’ve actually invested some time and effort on your own. 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. Login or Sign Up.

It has four zone sliders, and the church want to know if a different voice can be assigned to each of the four sliders.
Help Newbie – How to Download MIDI files to CP300
Advertise on the most comprehensive and widely viewed musicians’ website. You can program your sequences on that from your Mac and it comes with a Mac sound editor.
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 this yet, but it should be possible. My Kurz can only read Type 0 with it’s current OS.
The SMF format was created as an industry standard, of sorts, so that people could share MIDI files regardless of what system they were using.
CP Zone Sliders –
You’ve mentioned wanting to do about five different things here. 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. Plug a midi cable from the CP midi out jack to the CP midi in jack. Set local control off so the CP will mii play from it’s own keys.
Mdii own one, I’ve done it, but the internal sequencer memory is only 1. It’s not in the manual. One of them has all the data on one track, but you can have 16 different instruments on the 16 different channels on the same track. 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.
Lastly, you should be able to export songs out mmidi the CP in standard MIDI file format, IF it has this capability, but again – you’ll need to read the manual.

I’ll do some reading on it. Lastly, you’ll be more likely to get help on boards such as this if you come armed with specific questions, as well as some evidence that you’ve actually invested some time and effort on your own. This means cp3000 the files can’t be shared between different platforms.
Yamaha does make software for transferring SMF files to it’s internal memory – but here’s the kick in the teeth – it’s for Windows XP only. This in theory should give you two internal and two external voices when playing the CP’s own keys though you may be limited to an internal and external voice playing the same notes.
In the end, it’ll be much easier just to decide what you want to do. Thanks for any help. The manual is pretty rubbish in that area.
Search New posts Logout Register. I guess I should have kept my post a bit more specific regarding what my keyboard should do or not do. Thank you again Pro for being patient with a newbie, even though I’ve been playing the piano for 27 years.
I’m not even sure how to use MIDI with it. The CP manual is really confusing to newbies ,idi it doesn’t say anything about what you can really do with the DP.
Thank you all for the reply. Along with the General MIDI spec, SMFs were used by tons of software back in the ‘s to generate music in computer games and other programs, as they could easily be played back on Soundblaster-compatible sound cards.
Now for two internal and two external voices, this midl around may be possible at least according to how I read and interpret the midj.

If I could get four voices over the full range then I can make them work cp3300 different midi channels. Since SMF’s can be pretty small you can put a dozen or more files in there but not enough for a gig. I believe an upgrade allowed it to read Type 1s. Have you installed the driver?
Set up a four zone performance with the first 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.
