Hello ! I recently own yamaha psr e453. I have encountered the same problems with installing the USB driver. I tried 2 AB 2 cables with which the printer works. I bought a new cable. It looks like I would have installed Steinberg Driver (It's seen as a program but I can not be sure it's okay). I downloaded the Musicsoft downloader. I loaded a song with the middle extension in the first window but the two big blue arrows do not answer. Messages are: '' Make sure that instrument set to allow MIDI transmission and reception ‘’. (I do not know what to do to set) but and ‘’ Cannot communicate with the instrument’’

The Yamaha USB-MIDI driver won’t install unless the installation program can detect that a compatible Yamaha keyboard is connected to the computer and is turned on.

Also, there are— and have been— different versions of the Yamaha USB-MIDI driver, and the driver won’t install if it’s not the correct version for your computer’s operating system. What operating system is it (Windows, macOS, etc.), what version is it (e.g., Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10), and how many bits is it for (32 or 64)?

Note that if there was a CD-ROM that came with your keyboard and it has a USB-MIDI driver on it, it might not be the correct version for your computer’s operating system, especially if it’s an older keyboard model. It’s always best to go to Yamaha’s website and make sure you download the latest version of the USB-MIDI driver that’s compatible with your OS.

hey, im 15 and i still have problems with this. I have a Clavinova CLP-430 and i want to connect my macbookpro to the piano so i can play on the piano and it will be read onto the device. I am currently on windows on the mac but i can switch to IOS at any point if needed. But I have connected my usb to midi cable to the digital piano and i have the same problem that kevin has had. Is this something with being on windows or my piano itself? Someone help me please. :D I also need to use a program to do this but i dont know how to.

Welcome, @martin_madness!

Are you using Windows on the Mac for a specific reason? I'm thinking you might want to see if you can get things working in the macOS first, and once you've done that you can try getting things working in Windows on the Mac. I'm primarily a Windows user, myself, and you should be able to get things working in Windows, but running one OS inside another adds another layer of complexity for things to go wrong with-- if you're running Windows on a virtual machine. Or do you have the Mac set up so you can boot up in Windows if you want?

If you're using a MIDI-to-USB cable, rather than a standard USB cable, then either you shouldn't need a driver, or you should use the driver provided by the manufacturer of the cable-- not the driver from the manufacturer of the keyboard. What brand is the cable? I've read that some MIDI-to-USB cables can be problematic as far as data errors, so if the computer is receiving MIDI data then you might want to use a MIDI monitor on the computer to make sure the data looks okay.

By the way, one very common mistake when using MIDI cables is that IN should go to OUT, and OUT should go to IN, which seems contrary to what you might expect. That's because the keyboard's MIDI OUTput will be the computer's MIDI INput, and the computer's MIDI OUTput will be the keyboard's MIDI INput. So if you're using a MIDI-to-USB cable, the two MIDI plugs on the cable will be labeled IN and OUT, but you want to connect the IN cable to the keyboard's MIDI OUT port, and connect the OUT cable to the keyboard's MIDI IN port.

Doesn't the CLP-430 have a USB-to-Host connector in addition to its MIDI IN/OUT connectors? If you have trouble getting a MIDI-to-USB connection to work, you might consider going the straight USB route. However, you should check the CLP-430's manual to see what it says about USB cables. I believe you need to use a USB 2 cable, not a USB 3 cable, and you should make sure the cable isn't too long. If you do use a straight USB connection, you'll need to install the Yamaha USB-MIDI driver for Windows if you're using Windows, but if you're using the macOS then I don't think you need to install a driver because the macOS should have suitable built-in drivers. However, this is where things could be confusing, because the version of the Mac's OS may be relevant. What is the OS version that's installed on the Mac?
