Musicstar manual needed...

Discussion in 'comp.music.midi' started by Tony Cianfaglione, Jun 28, 2003.

  1. I picked up a Reveal Musicstar midi keyboard with software but no manual,
    at a thrift store, for my nephew.

    Is there information or a manual online somewhere for this device. It
    connects to a PC via the sound card.

    Thanks...

    It's pretty easy to use, just install the software and start it. The
    JammerGrid is pretty cool, I wish I could find a full-fledged version of
    it. The best way to figure it out is to play with it. The little
    keyboard is split into 2 parts, the left 6(or so) keys are for the
    accompianment and the right keys are for the melody.
    I gave mine away, so I can't send you a photocopy of the manual, sorry.
  3. Thanks for the reply. It seems pretty straightforward. What I was mainly
    wondering about was if the included programs would work with a larger
    regular midi keyboard as well or is the setup geared only for the tiny
    keyboard provided?

    Also, I seem to be missing disk 1 of 7. They were in a factory sealed
    package but disk 1 is not there; only disk 2 of 7 through 7 of 7.

    I couldn't get my Yamaha to work with it. The cheap little midi cable
    they give, only is 1-way......keyboard to program. I tried my yamaha
    keyboard with usb interface and it wouldn't work. Maybe you might have
    some luck with a conventional midi to joystick connection, but it is
    only 1 way....midi-out to computer.

    Mine came with a cd. They still sell them on ebay, maybe you could get
    a cd for $5. Write to one of the sellers, and ask if they could make
    you a copy. You probably could win a bid on a whole boxed unit for
    $5. :) The jammer-grid was the only worthwhile thing about it.

    Also http://compgeeks.com sell brand new ones(although they are
    surplus), that's where I got mine.
  5. Thanks. I'll check them out.
