Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced problems connecting their newer Privia to Finale, and particularly if anyone has solved their problem and managed to connect the two somehow. I have a new 750 which I'm enjoying, but if I can't connect it to Finale for use as a midi controller, I may just have to take it back. (I *really* didn't anticipate this being a problem!)

I gather the issue might have something to do with 'High-res' midi being used in the Privia keyboards: http://forum.makemusic.com/default.aspx?f=6&m=388377

Thanks!

The issue is Finale, their software for some reason is ignoring the note on information when accompanied with the extra info for high-resolution velocity. They are aware of the issue and are working on a fix.

Thanks Mike, that's helpful. I wish I knew when said fix would be available, and whether it'll be rolled out in updates to existing software or included in new versions only, though I imagine nobody really knows yet. If my current version is to remain broken, I'll either have to find some way to downsample the midi signal from the casio to 'standard res' or look for another kb. It's a drag b/c the kb works fine with my other software.

Hey Mike, can you by any chance tell me whether all the newer Privias (x50s) feature high-res midi? The 850 has just come available locally, maybe I could trade up. (Kind of a long shot, but worth a try!)

Yes all the PX-X50 series Privias support the high res midi specification.

If you do not need the speakers the new Privia PX-5S (according to the manual) allows you to turn high resolution velocity off.

But thanks for pointing out the problems with Finale and high resolution.

Wow, I wish that was possible on the 750!

Is it possible with AP450/AP650 too ?

An update, of sorts: I thought maybe I could route the midi signal in through Logic, send it out from there to the Mac's IAC bus and then use that as an input on Finale, as a way to 'strip out' extra high-res velocity info.

It kind of works, but it seems to be so resource intensive that I can only get one note to sound before Logic hangs. Still, that one note does print in finale's Hyperscribe, so something like this seems theoretically possible.

Perhaps my version of Logic (Express 9) doesn't really support 'high-resolution' values either, or maybe I'm doing something wrong - either way I'm not much further ahead frown

Hopefully Finale will get back to me about the status of this issue sometime this week.

I spoke to the people at Finale yesterday. They're working on it.

Cool, thanks Mike! That's encouraging.

I emailed with some folks at customer service this week myself, and the representative I corresponded with said any fix will likely roll out with the new version of Finale due this summer. He suggested that this issue will not likely be fixed for older versions (no surprise there).

I think I can probably wait 'til the summer to see what kind of fix might emerge. Fingers crossed!
