    Hi Experts,

    I have a PSR E 353 Yamaha Keyboard and would like to connect to PC and use it as MIDI input to either Audacity, FL Studio or Cubase. I would appreciate your help on this. Currently i bought a connector Printer scanner connector USB 2.0 but when I connect the keyboard to PC, nothing seems to happen. My aim to to program or arrange the music in my PC and my keyboard can work as MIDI input to the Music/ Song arrangement software(any one of them).

    Also could you suggest what is the best song programming software available for Windows which is open source or free.

    Regards,
    Randeep

    Have you downloaded and installed the driver for your Yamaha?

    Audacity is not the best for multitrack work, try Cockos Reaper.

    With DAW software you do get what you pay for, I only use mine occasionally so Ableton Lite works well for me.
