I have a Casio Privia PX-310. I recorded a tune onto the song memory of the keyboard and want to transfer it to the computer, but I don't know how. This keyboard does not have a memory card slot, but I have a midi cable to connect it to my computer.

Does anyone know how to transfer a song from the keyboard to the computer with a midi cable?

I am confused because I can use the keyboard as a midi controller in Sibelius, but when I press the start button to play back what I've recorded on the keyboard, Sibelius won't notate what's played.

Check your manual. In PX-110 you have to press function + F#7 (rightmost F# on the keyboard) key to send memory playback to midi out. Then play back the song.

Edit: corrected the key

In PX-110 manual it's: other settings->using midi. The PX-310 manual may have a different layout as it has a lot more functions though. Did you try pressing these keys? Maybe it works the same for both models.

I tried that but it didn't seem to work, and then I just pressed abunch of random keys. Somehow in the end I got it to go into Sibelius in the right rhythms, but when I tried to play back the file after exporting it, it was just silence.

Any ideas on that?

Look into "Sounds" from control panel.

Choose "Audio" tab and check to see if output is to USB/Midi device.

I downloaded the px-310 manual and it sure seems to be the same as px-110. Its on the page E-26. You have to press and hold down the function button and then press F#7. But I understand that you got the midi data to sibelius already. So it should be a different problem with playback on your computer. Does sibelius itself play back the file, or any file for that matter? Also into what format did you exoprt it and where did you attempt to play it? Perhaps there is a problem with your midi device configuration.

I have a px310 and didn't realize you could export midi data once recorded internally...I'll have to check this out.

If you just want the audio, you can take the Casio line out into your computers line in and record into a program like "Audacity" which is free off the internet.

I used Audacity and I got it to work! Thanks everyone =]

One quick question though: Do you know how to fix the volume level of the recording? When the keyboard was playing for audacity to record, it was really loud, but when I played it back on the computer, it was barely audible.

That could be for a number of reasons. If the wave amplitude in audacity is fairly big (ie a thick looking wave pattern) then it is a computer output setting, if it is thin then either the signal was weak or the gain on the computer input or the audacity recording program was too low.
