Default Midification of Yamaha CS50 & SK20

Hi.

I wonder if either (or both) the Yamaha CS50 or SK20 synths could be midified. I'd only be looking for note on/off. I know the CS50 has a MIDI kit already, but that's very expensive and adds a bunch of features I wouldn't necessarily want. Note on/off would be better for me.

Service manuals/schema are here:

Thanks.

Hi Pinksoir, welcome to the forum.

I'm too short on time to go too deep into those service manuals, so the best I can tell you is to make sure to read this thread:

http://forum.highlyliquid.com/showthread.php?t=1133

...if the keyboard in question works the same way and uses 5V logic, then there's a good chance that the UMR2 can work.

Otherwise, you're probably better off going with a proven solution, even if it is overkill for your application.

I'm sorry for not having a better answer for you.

Hi John,

Thanks for the reply. I don't have any knowledge of schematics so I wouldn't know where to start looking for that. I've read that thread though and all the other info I can find on the blog and the forum.

When you do have time I'd really appreciate it if you could have a quick look at the schema and let me know if it'd work.

Thanks!

Hi Pinksoir,

Because of the DIY nature of HL products, it is likely that you will run into major difficulties if you are unable to understand a schematic. If you want to learn more, there are some links here:
