HOW TO USE THE KEYBOARD

CONNECTION OF THE KEYBOARD TO A PERSONAL COMPUTER What is MIDI? The acronym MIDI is the abbreviation of "Musical Instrument Digital Interface" and represents a standard for the transmission of data via cables between an electronic musical instrument and a personal computer or another electronic musical instrument.

The Midi system This keyboard adopts the Midi system, a standard which allows users to receive or send data in MIDI format to a personal computer or to another keyboard without compatibility problems between musical instruments of different brands. The TK628 keyboard is equipped with a USB-MIDI plug for connection to the personal computer. The connection takes place using the cable supplied as shown in the figure:

Minimum system requirements Personal computer with Pentium 3 800Mhz processor equipped with USB plug.Windows XP or later operating system.

Procedure for connection to the computer Prior to connecting the keyboard, make sure that the computer is switched on and the keyboard switched off. Carry out the connection with the cable supplied. Switch on the instrument. After a few seconds, a series of messages will appear on the computer:

New hardware found

New hardware found USB Speakers

New hardware found The new hardware has been installed and is ready for use

At this point, the keyboard is correctly connected and recognised by the computer. Note:The recognition of the keyboard by the computer takes places during the first connection; in subsequent connection no message will appear. Only the characteristic sound produced by the computer to indicate the insertion of a USB device will be heard.. Attention: â&#x20AC;˘ If the keyboard is not recognised by the computer and a USB device not recognised error message appears, repeat the operation. If the problem persists, check that the minimum requirements are respected. â&#x20AC;˘ if the operating system is later than Windows XP (Vista ...), it is necessary to download the respective drivers from the internet, using the site www.bontempi.com.

HOW TO USE THE KEYBOARD

“Windows Media Player” is included in the Windows packet. It is a program that can read Midi files and send the notes to the keyboard connected to the computer. To perform a MIDI file using “Windows Media Player” follow the operations below: • Open the “Windows Media Player” program • In the most recent versions the program does not have the “Open file” option. In this case, press CTRL M (Control M). This control shows a classical menu in which the open file option is displayed. • Select File | Open | nomefile.mid where “nomefile.mid can be any MIDI file (as for example the file C:\WINDOWS\Media\fluorish.mid, present in Windows XP can be selected) and send it to be executed. • To listen to the piece, press the Play () button situated in the lower centre; Press the Stop button () to stop it. • The keyboard will play the selected sequence.

Usable Programmes In addition to WINDOWS Media Player, many other computer programmes are commercially available.They offer the possibility to expand the range of functions of the keyboard. Some allow the registration of pieces in Midi format. In other cases, it is possible to register on the computer what is being played on the keyboard. Later, the piece can be replayed, and its musical score can be visualised or printed. It is also possible to correct errors, change sounds, etc. Many of these software programmes are also available on the Internet in Demo or Shareware format.

How to find the Midi Files On the Internet or in music stores, countless Midi Files can be found for modern or classical music of all kinds. They can be played with the keyboard, or used as an orchestral base to play a melody. Note: The Midi Files available on the Internet have sometimes been made for specific instruments. Some are Midi devises that do not respect the MIDI standard, others have their own specific additional functions. In such cases, it is possible that the musical piece will not be played with the same sounds and effects that are supposed to be used. In any event, the keyboard respects the standard MIDI, and has many commonly used functions that can be seen on the map on the instrument’s manual. Attention: • If the keyboard or the computer freeze, switch off both devices and then switch on the keyboard again. • Correct operation cannot be guaranteed if the instrument is switched off or the USB cable disconnected while a MIDI application is operational. • Leave at least 10 seconds between switching off and switching on the keyboard and between the disconnection and connection of the USB cable. • Make sure that the Midi application is closed prior to switching off the instrument of disconnecting the USB cable. If this should happen, close the Midi application, switch off instrument then switch it back on again and restart the Midi application.

FREE MUSICAL SOFTWARE DOWNLOADABLE FROM INTERNET On the www.bontempi.com site, free musical software is available, with instructions in various languages, to download onto your computer to record, modify and listen to MIDI musical tracks again using the keyboard. 15
