I recently bought Cubase Pro 10.5 and am trying to connect my Yamaha MX88 keyboard to it as an external instrument so I can use the MX’s tone engine. I have installed the correct USB driver and MIDI input is working fine when writing in VST instruments.
When I try to set the MIDI output to the Yamaha MX within the ‘MIDI Device Manager’ I only have output options of ‘Yamaha MX Series 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5’. According to this website: https://yamahasynth.com/synths/setting-up-a-yamaha-mx-with-cubase-on-windows-computer?format=amp
There should be an output option called ‘Yamaha MX49/MX61 Port 1’ but this is not displayed on my MIDI Device Manager. I have attached a screen shot of this.
If I use any of the Series 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 options the MIDI output option for a MIDI track when routed through the MX is ‘Yamaha MX (Yamaha MX Series-1)’ instead of ‘Yamaha MX’. Using this output I get really bad audio playback when playing the keyboard and exported audio from the project becomes a semitone and a bit sharp with very bad audio quality.
Would anyone know how to fix this problem as I have tried reinstalling the driver and attempted to connect the MX to two separate computers, neither of which has fix the issue.
