im trying to connect my yamaha s03 to my Creative Sound Blaster live!
im using a computer midi cable (it has a midi i/o on one side and a joystick port on the other). I have plugged it in correctly and set the keyboard to the midi setting. However when im working in programs, or when i check the soundcard menue in the windows controll panel, im told the card isnt recieving any signal.

Do i need drivers? or maybe i have to set something up in the synth's menu?
