I have YDP-140 yamaha keyboard.
I want to hook it up to my computer to use this program called synesthesia.

they recommend this midi cable
BUY the E-MU Xmidi 1x1. It works with everything. Didn't even need the driver.

i just want to know if it matters what kind of cable i get for it?

like would it be an improvement to spend more or is it just like HDMI cable that any cable would do?

some suggestions on cables or advice would be appreciated.

thank you

USB printer cable will work if you have one and the keyboard fits it. It's what I use for mine, and I don't see any loss of quality or anything.


This program looks cool though, might have to check it out.

I recommend using a roland cakewalk. but I'm sure the cable they recommend is basically the same thing

MIDI cables are MIDI cables. They are standardized like HDMI. There is no loss in MIDI signal quality through the cable though since it is transferring data and not sound.

According to a specs sheet I found on this digital piano there is no USB connectivity so he does need a MIDI cable (unless spec sheet is missing something).

get yourself any cheap USB MIDI adapter. They're all the same, like HDMI it's a digital signal so there is no difference between the cheap ones and the more expensive ones (apart from things like build quality and additional features).
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.
