Question about Casio Ctk 496 Electronic Keyboard with 61 Keys and Singalong Capability

1 Answer

Casio ctk-496 claims to be midi keyboard controller

It has both midi in/midi out connectors but without midi thru.I've use midi in/midi out to midi/gameport cable.System doesn;t recognize an instrument, Reason 2.5 software neither,during the playing still hear a sound from internal keyboard speakers but no midi signal is send to software.
I've also got a Creative Prodikeys DM,regular keyboard with music keys in one connected via PS2 port which briliant works as midi keyboard,but with support of own drivers.Casio ctk-496 haven't any driver,and can't get it on internet (doubt if it even exists).
As i saw i'm not a first with such problem about casio ctk-496.I will try connect it with additionaly line in cable through line in port on soundcard and casio headphones but suppose that brings only line in sound.My goal is get fully operate 61 midi music keys to "live" playing with a software music notes.I have Windows XP Home ed. with 3ServicePack,DirectX compatibile sound card so no problems from my computer.
Greatful toward any response,even to "have no idea" and lot of respect to Your Free Tech Support activities.

Try downloading MidiOx and troubleshooting with it. It will show you if you have any midi activity and which channel your Casio is transmitting on etc.

Casio Chord is internal to the keyboard and doesn't come out on MIDI. Transpose is similar and while the button may send a MIDI transpose type signal out, the notes will not transpose in your computer...

You have to install the MIDI type software in the PC to trigger the sound card's voices. You may also need a driver for the keyboard. Search the Casio site for downloads pertaining to your keyboard.

I have connected my casio to pc but pc songs and piano sound is not hearing in pc how it will work if any driver will use tell me about that i have casio ctk-2100 electronic keyboard


ASSUMING you have a MIDI interface connection, (not audio) then you need to set the PC to use a general MIDI sound and turn on the synth in the PC.

Go to control panel and open the sound icon. Select the device to use for MIDI playback in the appropriate section.

Oh, oh... that is often called the "Dreaded MIDI Drone".

There ccan be more than one causes, however two of those are this:

1. The receiving device either does or does not respond to the note off command or only responds to the note on command with zero velocity, which is also now interpreted as note off. Check the MIDI implementation chart to determine this.

2. Two MIDI commands have merged without using a MIDI merger which makes sure ONLY complete MIDI commands are sent. If the commands are mixed, dreaded MIDI drone is assured.

Can I use it as controller for Fruity Loops? How? Thanks. The model that I have is Casio CTK 496.


You can use this keyboard via MIDI to send note on/off information to FriutyLoops. Use for control functions will be somewhat limited to voice change, velocity, and aftertouch.

No display light on my casio ctk 496 every thing else works


Sorry, but many of the low end keyboards do NOT have backlights. This is especially true of those that have the capability of running off batteries like the CTK-496.

The display in this is a reflectance type that needs ambient lighting to view.

My casio 496 cannot connect to fruity loops


Unfortunately your model of Casio only has midi in and not midi out. You will be able to use it as an external sound module but not to input notes into Fruity Loops. In other words midi out of your computer to midi in of the Casio with the proper settings will play your Fruity Loops sequences through the Casio.
