M-Audio Accent piano

I'm new to digital keyboards, and I don't understand the manual for the M-Audio Accent. How do I use it as a MIDI controller for use with Korg Module?

    Hi John,

    Thanks for posting!

    There's a couple things you'll need to do:

    - Connect a standard 5-pin MIDI cable from the Accent MIDI Out to the Korg MIDI In
    - Ensure that the Accent is set to send MIDI Out to the MIDI port and the Korg is set to receive MIDI In to it's port
    - Ensure that the Accent is sending on the same MIDI channel the Korg is receiving on

    To enable the MIDI Out port on the Accent, just hold the SHIFT button and press the Demo/MIDI Mode button to activate MIDI Mode.

    To change the MIDI Channel, just hold SHIFT and press one of the keys labeled "MIDI CH" to change the channel up and down.

    Now as long as your Korg is set to receive MIDI info and is receiving on the same channel, you should be able to trigger sounds on your Korg. You'll want to check with Korg or their documentation for any info on setting up that module. Keep in mind, that the sound will be coming from the Korg so make sure this is plugged into your speakers or mixer.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions!

  • Thanks. Do I have to use the 5 pin MIDI socket? Can I use the USB?

    Hi John,

    You would need to use the 5-PIn MIDI cable if you're connecting directly to the Korg module. The only way to go via USB would be to route it through some software on your computer and back out to the Korg. I'm not sure what the Korg is though so it's hard to say if this would actually be a feasible approach.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

  • I sense a misunderstanding! Korg Module is an iPad app that you can use with a MIDI controller, so the USB is the way to go I think.
