Setting Up Your Computer for MIDI
The USB cable functions as a bidirectional MIDI cable, allowing you to
record and playback your performance using MIDI sequencing software
(not included).
MIDI is a protocol consisting of data messages that are used to control
synthesizers, sound modules, keyboards, or software “virtual instruments.”
MIDI messages contain instructions such as what note to play, when to play
it, and which sound to play.
When connected to your computer via USB, the Keyboard MIDI ports
will appear in the “MIDI Devices” (Mac) or “Sounds and Audio Devices”
(PC), indicating that a valid connection has been made. Refer to your
MIDI sequencing software manual to learn how to record and play back
MIDI sequences.
USB Cable
(included)
The USB cable functions as a bidirectional MIDI cable. The MIDI Input allows you
to use other MIDI controllers such as another keyboard, extra knobs or drum pads.
The MIDI Output sends data from the keyboard, wheels and knobs.
The MIDI Input and Output jacks also function as a MIDI interface, allowing other
MIDI devices to be connected to your computer.

LONGboard 61 SHORTboard 49
Synthesizer Controls
These four controls allow you to modify the selected program. Turning a
knob sets the parameter to the current knob position. Select the program
again to restore the original setting.
Cutoff - Controls the low pass filter cutoff frequency. Turning the control
up allows more high frequencies to pass. Turning the control down reduces
high frequencies.
Resonance - Resonance or “Q” boosts the frequencies around the cutoff
frequency. This gives the filter a sharper and more synthesizer-like sound.
Attack - When a key is pressed, the low pass filter cutoff is turned up at
a rate specified by this control (if edited). Turning the control up increases
the attack time.
Decay/Release - This control specifies the time it takes for the low pass
filter to close down after a key is released (and depending on the selected
program, after the attack time).
Effects Controls
The Chorus and Reverb effects add effects are applied to
all programs and to both sides of a split keyboard.
Chorus - This effect thickens the sound as it makes one
voice sound like many. The knob controls the chorus
depth or “how much” chorus is applied.
Reverb - Reverberation is a simulation of a natural
space such as a room or hall. This knob controls the
reverb amount.

Pitch & Mod Wheels
The pitch wheel is a spring-loaded controller for bending the pitch of notes
during performance.
The “mod” or modulation wheel usually controls the amount of vibrato
(LFO to pitch) during performance. The mod wheel also transmits on
MIDI CC 01.
Note: The mod wheel controls tremolo (LFO to volume) instead of
vibrato in some bank 7 programs.

Sustain Footswitch
This jack accepts an on/off type footswitch to sustain held keys.
Either a normally-open or normally-closed momentary footswitch can be
used, as the polarity is automatically sensed on power-up.
Control Footpedal
This jack accepts a continuously variable footpedal to control the output
volume. Most types of variable footpedals with a stereo plug can be used.
(Please refer to the wiring diagram shown below.) You can also use a variable
pedal that outputs 0-5 Volts DC at the tip of a mono phone plug.

Setup: Set the channel number to match the channel set on the PIPEline
receiver, then press the Link button. The Link button will flash until the
two units are “paired.” The LED will now remain lit.
See the Wireless Audio Connection instructions.
USB Port
The USB Port is used to transmit MIDI data back and forth between the
keyboard and your computer. The USB cable also supplies power to the
unit. Therefore, the external power supply is not needed when a computer
is connected via USB.
MIDI Connections
These connections provide a way to connect to other MIDI equipment
to your system. MIDI Out can be used to transmit your keyboard performance to another MIDI instrument.
The keyboard can also be used as a MIDI interface for other MIDI gear
when connected to your computer via USB.
User’s Guide
27
Windows XP and Vista
LONGboard and SHORTboard are class-compliant devices and Windows
will automatically detect and recognize them the first time you plug in
the USB cable and turn the unit on. The keyboard will be listed as “USB
Audio Device” in the Windows XP Control Panel, Sounds & Audio Devices,
Audio, MIDI Music Playback. The MIDI interface section of the keyboard
will be listed as “USB Audio Device [2].” The USB connection provides
MIDI communication between the keyboard/MIDI interface and your
computer, as well as power to the keyboard.
Optional E-MU MIDI drivers are available at www.emu.com.support.
Installing the E-MU MIDI drivers will allow you to use the MIDI features
of your keyboard with more than one application at the same time (multiclient). See the instructions on the E-MU web site for detailed information.
Mac OSX
Driver installation is not required with Macintosh OSX. However you will
need to select the LONGboard or SHORTboard as a MIDI device in the
Audio/MIDI Setup window of the Utilities menu before you can use it
with other MIDI applications.
Set-up the MIDI Devices
1. Click Go -> Utilities from the menu bar.
2. Double-click Audio MIDI Setup, then click the MIDI Devices button
if it’s not already selected. The window shown below appears.

Troubleshooting
Problem:
Sustain pedal operation is reversed (the notes sustain when the pedal
isn’t pressed and stop sustaining when the pedal is pressed).
Solution:
The sustain pedal polarity is sensed on power-up. Don’t press the
sustain pedal during power-up or the sustain pedal operation may be
reversed.
Problem:
Interference from computer networking gear when using the PIPEline
receiver.
Solution:
Try using a different channel on the keyboard and PIPEline.
Problem:
Noticeable delay in the sound when playing a software virtual instrument or when recording the keyboard’s audio output.
Solution:
This delay is known as latency and can be adjusted by changing the
buffer size setting in your recording application. Try to set the buffer
size as low as possible without hearing clicks or pops in the audio
stream. Faster computers generally allow smaller buffer size settings and
lower latency.
30
LONGboard 61 SHORTboard 49
Problem:
The keyboard is connected to my computer with the USB cable, but I
cannot locate the LONGboard or SHORTboard USB keyboard in my
software’s MIDI devices dialog box.
Solution:
In Windows XP, your keyboard appears as a “USB Audio Device.”
Select “USB Audio Device” as your audio and MIDI input and output
device.
We recommend going to www.emu.com to get our low latency E-MU
MIDI drivers. This will enable the keyboard to be exposed in multiple
applications at the same time.
Problem:
When the keyboard is connected to my Windows computer a question
mark appears in the Windows Device Manager under Other Devices >
E-MU. What is the problem?
Solution:
The question mark is normal.Your keyboard will function as a classcompliant device (i.e., without any drivers).
Problem:
When I play the keyboard or use any of the MIDI controls (wheel,
knob, data slider, etc.), data is not transmitted from the MIDI Out jack.
Solution:
This may be caused by the MIDI Out being set to Thru Mode. The
MIDI Out jack can be configured to transmit MIDI data from either
the keyboard or from the MIDI In connector. If the MIDI Out mode
is set to Thru, the keyboard and controls will not send any data to the
MIDI Out jack.
