Yamaha MX49 Synth - Connected USB standalone MPC X

Hi guys,

I am having issues.... I have a MX49 synth, powered by power adapter, USB - A Type to USB MPC X. It will not recongzine the keys in standalone, works perfectly fine with the software. Why is this thing not and play??? :( Also I do not have 'Midi' cables connected at the same time. Any help is appreciated!

  • Hey Joe,

    Thanks for posting!

    Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with that! The MX49 is class-compliant so it should recognize when connected to the X. Make sure that you are connecting the USB B side to the MX49's USB To Host terminal. The USB A side should be connected to the MPC X's USB A inputs.

    If you try this and are still having trouble, I recommend connecting the MX49's MIDI Out port (5-pin) to the MPC X's MIDI In port.

    Try this and let me know how it goes!
