Using pad controller as a second keyboard

Q: Using pad controller as a second keyboard

Hi there,

I am not sure how to ask this properly but basically I have a laptop pad controller (AKAI LPD8), normally used for controlling midi. I would like to use this device to control my shortcuts in foobar2000. The problem is that the program does not really like my controller. When I check the device manager, I saw that my controller is seen as "audio device". Is there any way to make computer see the device as another input device like a keyboard? If I can manage to make controller act like a keyboard I think I can handle the rest, is this possible?

Thanks for your helps in advance!

Preferred Solution: Using pad controller as a second keyboard

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I just moved my computers to a larger space. When I set up one of my computers it didn't find the mouse so I shut the system down. When I restarted it the error message referred to in the title popped up.

My keyboard is loud. As I type this sentence, I imagine it sounds pretty similar to riverdance. I want to replace it with an HP multimedia keyboard. It's the standard keyboard that ships with middle-end Pavilion systems. Anyway, I've found a way to order it direcrt from HP. Will those multimedia and one-touch functions work with my system? I've heard stories about people trying to install drivers and having to rollback their systems. Also, somebody said there's an actual keyboard controller wired into the mobo.

Does anyone know a way to get this to work, or am I better off continuing my quest for quiet keyboards?

A:Motherboard keyboard controller?

The drivers should be included with the keyboard. If not, they can be downloaded from here. There is a 'Configuring the Multimedia and Internet Buttons' link to the configuration instructions there, too.

Virtually all motherboards have a keyboard controller. It can be a separate chip, but is usually integrated into the chipset.

I have a Roland PC-200 mkII midi controller connected to the PC via a MIDI to USB converter. The system claims to recognise it, and sets up a USB2.0-MIDI device with two hardware items: USB Composite Device and USB2.0-MIDI (sound, video and game controllers).

The keyboard is recognised - and sends MIDI signals. However, it will only send one at a time now, meaning it will only play single notes rather than chords. This is independent of whatever programme runs with it, indicating that it's a problem between the keyboard and Win7. The keyboard worked properly on Vista32 and previously on XP.

My mobo will not accept a direct MIDI (game port) connection, so I have no choice but to use the converter.

Am I missing any settings in Win7?

A:USB-MIDI keyboard controller


i hear what you're saying. i own two controller keyboards with a usb interface, as well as a digital piano with midi in/out.... yep, winxp worked great when i plugged in either my EST (or is it ESI? their logo is hard to read) 49 key controller, or my M-Audio 49 key controller. I can't vouch for vista - installed it once. hated it.

When I first started using windows 7 I thought wow, this new OS is great! much faster than vista, more intuitive blah blah, then i loaded up all my music software, vsti plugins etc, and the final bit - plugging in the m-audio usb keyboard. "searching for hardware" - at this point i thought oh-oh as i remember on xp it instantly recognised it. so i waited, thinking ok its a different OS, maybe it needs to dig deeper to find driver, then i was faced with the devastating news that the device was not functioning, let alone being recognised. FORTUNATELY however, i bought a piece of sh*t USB to MIDI IN/OUT dongle from ebay. it was very cheap, the wiring is way too thin but hey it did the job for my digital piano when i needed to, so NOW, regardless of which USB keyboard I use under Win7, I must use this gay dongle. As for your issue - the mono polyphony - weird. My advice? Hit ebay. Buy another one from hong kong, just not the one you got originally. If you want, I am happy to provide a photo of the one i have - which works wonderfully and yes, it has full polyphone (ie i can play chords).... sometimes its not worth the headaches of waiting for forum replies of people stating obvious answers and things you already knew or tried, so i suggest you get a new dongle my friend.

this may be an obvious question but did you try different USB ports? Did it say "your USB device can operate faster"? - if its recognising it as USB1.1 that might be the problem. Otherwise, I'm out of suggestions...

Oh, and I am using Windows Ultimate 32bit on both a laptop and desktop, and both work with this dongle.

you'd like the dongle! it looks pretty when youre playing cos it has 3 lights, power on, midi in and midi out LED's

hope this helps u dude!

PS: Microsoft: Please fix this. You're already losing the music market to Mac enthusiasts, can't you get this right? Get a calculator and work out how many musicians will migrate from XP (or vista) to Win 7 and be pissed off then think fvck this im switching to mac?

So what's the verdict ....Mouse + keyboard or Microsoft xbox controller ?

The reason I'm asking is , Assassins Creed 2 ...I had some serious issues doing advanced wall jumps to the side on the last few side missions to get Alta?rs armour. ( Did the missions last thing , Yeah I'm a f**ktard , I know that already )

Yes its an old game but its new to me ! Seems like you have to have 4 fingers on the keyboard and one on the mouse. Is it just a bad port or is the keyboard and mouse system not that good ?

Kinda got used to it now on other games, so what's everyone else using ?

You are probably better off just replacing the board. You might be able to find someone to fix it, but with shipping and labor it would probably be as much, or cheaper to just replace it.

I recently bought a game that is a port from xbox, however it is not a full pc port so it only has controller support.

I have been looking around and everybody seems to be just trying to send emulators to make your controller work like a mouse or whatnot, but I just want something that will make it so that I can map keys on my keyboard to correspond with the joysticks and buttons on a controller.

I do have a controller, however I only have one and the game is somewhat reliant on multiplayer to have a really good time with friends so if you have anything like that, it would be awesome if you could send me a link

I have replaced the keyboard with a brand new one and the same problem remains with the same keys.

Dell Diagnostics says no issue with Keyboard Controller and an External USB Keyboard works absolutely fine on all keys.

I have cleaned the cable and there was some black gunk on the contacts where the keyboard plugs into its connector but still those keys do not work.

I am stumped.

I have a Toshiba Portege A100 (PPA10E-0002N-EN) with a frazled keyboard controller.

Would guess that it should be possible to re-flash it, but doubt anyone would want to bother.

Anyone know how I go about either getting it flashed or getting a replacement system board?

Thanks for any help anyone can give.

A:Portege A100: How to flash the keyboard controller?

Hello Nutter

System board replacement is not so simply to do without maintenance manuals. The disassembling procedure must be done in the right order. You probably know that small mistake can damage something.

Portege A100 is very nice unit and in my opinion it would be bad to destroy something. I recommend you to contact technicians.

I have a CME UF5 and I can't find drivers for Windows 7. I have a RME Babyface Audio/MIDI interface using Sonar X2 Producer.

A:Dead Keyboard and Mouse Immediately after installing PS3 PC controller driver

Why not use system restore to roll back your system to before you tried to install the PS3 controller drivers? It's pretty obvious that something went wrong with the install. I haven't looked lately but last time I checked there were no offical PS3 controller drivers. The one that is floating around is a hacked driver and results may vary. The Xbox 360 controller does have an offical driver from Microsoft.

A:missing multimedia audio controller and network controller

Have done some looking around. From what I have found in many forums is that Vista drivers should work with Windows 7.

Post at Dell forums says the Sigma Tel Stac 975X AC97 audio driver listed for the Insperion 9300 at Dell Support will work for Vista and Windows 7. The file is a zip, so downloasd and save the file to the flashdrive. Then load it on your laptop, unzip and run it.

None of the Netwrok dirvers at Dell Support are for Vista.

For the network controller I would suggest going to the Dell Support and find out what the original configeration was for your system. Go to this page, select Original Configeration tab and enter the Service Number for your computer. It will e on a tag on the bottom.

Once you get your network divices names, go to the device manufacturer's site and check for Vista/Window 7 drivers.

Turns out they were just being rolled back with the load last working settings along with the SM Bus Controller which was the only one really having a problem. Still though, after uninstalling reinstalling disabling and so on and so forth, the SM Bus Controller continues to be a thorn in my side. I have disabled it to get rid of the annoying pop up every time the computer restarts (I figured this is ok b/c according to the device manager the device is inactive anyway so why not?).

This is a problem that just recently popped up out of no where. One day upon startup two new pieces of hardware were found on my computer. I get prompted to install the drivers for a Raid Controller and a Multimedia Audio Controller.

Each day I cancel them and my computer runs just the same as it always does. It my Device Manager these two items show up in the "? Other devices" tab alongside a SM Bus Controller (which never prompts me to install so it doesn't really bother me).

Just wondering what these devices are, where they came from, and what I should do to solve the problem.


A:RAID Controller and Multimedia Audio Controller

Did you do a bios flash or reset cmos by chance?

They are probably onboard devices you can disable them in the bios. You need to check your manual; each bios is a little different as to where the items in question are located.

One more question; do you have an add-on sound card and does your systems sound work ok?

Hi! I wiped the machine. Loaded Windows 7 64bit Enterprise. Loaded SP1 Installed a few drivers... but... when it came to the chipset driver (sp65025) and the USB driver (sp65026), both installs start ok, but then errors out with "Your system does not meet the requirements for this update. Update has been cancelled. (9996)". I then looked up the hardware IDs and found other people with this issue with various systems, so I went to Intel's webste and download their Chipset Utility (Chipset_10.1.1.14_Public). It fails with an unknown error.  I have tried everything I can think of, including making sure every version of .Net was installed from 1.1 to 4.5. That did not help.  HP Support wants 99.99 to get on the system. I can't afford it. The software they say to install will not install. Is there anyone out there that has beaen this? Please help!joe

well...if there isnt a problem, then there isnt a problem. do you have a seperate audio/video card from your mother board or is all of that stuff onboard. if its onboard then you can google the name and serial on the mobo to find out what type it is and get the drivers

I have an MSI 845aru mainboard with a Promise pdc 20276 raid controller built into the board for the raid channels. I don't want to use them as a raid array but simply as two separate IDE controller channels. So can you connect 2 hard drives to the raid ide connectors on the motherboard, but operate in non-raid mode, with one as the boot drive. Reason is I want to do video editing which requires separate drive to capture video from the boot drive, and on seperate channels. Add to that I need a DVD and separate CD rewriter (which are also supposed to work best on a seperate IDE controller, and also not on hard
drive channel as hard drive will then run at the speed of the CD and not ata 100 I'm told). If it is possible to run them as normal ide channels, how do I set it up?

Many thanks for any help


A:Using raid controller as standard ide controller

As far as i know, no you can't do it .. use the RAID as a standard IDE controller... but , might want to search the newsgroups for a BIOS hack...
If you had a Asus board has BIOS hacks which will make a Promise IDE controller to work as a RAID controller... so you need the "reverse" , from RAID to IDE...
I'm too lazy to check , but there are couple of boards ( if my memory serves me right Soyo is one of them , that will acctually let you use the RAID as a IDE controller giving you a total of 8 IDE devices.... might wanna check it out...

Hi all. I have already posted this once here. The topic had quite a few views and not a single reply. I'm giving this another try, as the problem persists and is not getting any better.

The keyboard on my Aurora m9700 is having some strange issues. I cannot figure if it is software or hardware related, either. At random intervals, the keyboard will cease function. But when I go into standby, then come out of standby the problem seems to be magically fixed! In fact, the problem just happened right after I finished typing the last sentence. I checked event manager, nothing changed. I had to go into standby and come out of it...

So please, is there anyone on here that can help me out? I have reformatted the computer since this started happening and nothing has changed, so I do not know what could possibly be causing this!

Hello, I am running LenovoX260 with Windows 7, I additional installed the lenovo updatecenter. All drivers are updated according to lenovo7 update center. Symptom: Basically, when the machine boots on battery all keyboard strokes are delayed for roughly 5 seconds or an easy touch of touchpad or trackpoint -- whatever comes first. The machine has not a high load at this time and no keystroke is lost. It is just delayed strongly. To make it more complicate, this symptom disappears until next reboot when I lock the screen with win+l and reunlock the screen with my password. It also disappears when I plugin the powerplug, but it also reappears when I unplug it again on the login screen. Once I relogged/unlocked this effect does not reappear. Booting with power plugged in is fine. Any ideas?

Hey guys!

I recently got a Casio keyboard, with a new MIDI cable.

I'm a music artist and I'm totally new with this 'keyboard-to-computer-via-MIDI' stuff.

I don't know how to connect my Casio Keyboard to my computer with a MIDI cable. I've mostly been using Mixcraft's music library, but I want to start something new with my new keyboard.

Can someone PLEASE tell me how I can connect my keyboard to my laptop via MIDI?

I've looked at other forum posts and contacted a few music artists..........they had nothing.

Please help!

I prefer the Comfort On Screen Keyboard Pro and have installed it. After every sleep or reboot I have to manually disable the standard Touch Keyboard from  Toolbar entry on the Taskbar.

A:XPS 12 - anyone know how to permanently disable the standard On Screen Keyboard (a.k.a. Touch Keyboard).

Hi johnwprice,
Go to Control Panel -> Ease of Access -> Ease of Access Center -> ?Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard? and uncheck the ?Use On-Screen Keyboard" option and click Ok.
Then, click on ?Change administrative settings" options and check the "Apply all settings to the logon desktop" and press Apply.

As I wrote in the title, my Shift and Alt keys stopped working for keyboard shortcuts. However, the Shift key still works when capitalizing letters.

I've been dealing with this problem off/on for the past two weeks and haven't been able to figure it out. I've gone into Ease of Access features and turned on/off all of the available options (Mouse Keys, Sticky Keys, Toggle Keys, Filter Keys). I've pressed Shift for 8 seconds, and pressed it 5 times, and still haven't been able to correct it.

Thank you in advance for any help offered.

Possibly helpful additional information:
I've got a Spanish/Latin American keyboard layout installed in addition to the US English keyboard layout. I toggle back and forth with Left Alt + Shift (which is how I noticed my Shift key stopped working).
I play a game whose controls rely on a lot of Shift key pressing and holding.

When was the last time you used a can of air cleaner on the keyboard? If it isn't from contact wear often keyboards tend to get loaded up with dust and debris!

One example of that is having any snacks onhand around a pc where little bits get passed along from your fingers onto and under the keys themselves. Keyboards are known to get loaded up fast with any foods present!

Is this a special keyboard? does your motherboard have ps2 connection for a keyboard/mouse? If so, try connecting a ps2 keyboard as a temporary solution until you can iron out the driver issues. Or maybe just a plain vanilla USB keyboard will do the trick. I don't think your PSU has anything to do with it. Hope this helps.

Hi, I do a lot of typing at night time and the click of my keyoard's keys can be quite noticeable when there is pure silence. I have a Logitech K520 which isn't so loud but I would really love a keyboard that has the same type of keys as my Samsung laptop which are practically silent. Most laptops I've tried have similar keyboards in that the key doesn't travel far at all and there is no 'clicky' sounds either.

I have no idea what I would search for as I don't know what the style of keyboard is called. There are various names on the market, 'soft touch', 'quiet touch', 'low profile' etc etc but nothing that specifically identifies a laptop style.

I would just like a wireless laptop keyboard basically, even if it's the same size as a laptop keyboard but preferrably full sized.

Thanks very much for any advice

Download and scan with Adwcleaner.
Copy and paste the log in this thread or read the instructions carefully on how to use ADWCleaner on the linked Webpage.
Which Brand is your external keyboard?
I am thinking there might be a driver conflict and you may be able to fix it by downloading the latest drivers from the keyboard manufacturer's Website.

I have no idea what keys she hit, but she was near the bottom left side of my keyboard. Can anybody help PLEASE?
Thanks in advance.

Are the sounds like a hissing or scratching or more like a purrring........Sorry, I couldn't resist. -- Have you tried connecting a different keyboard? This way you would know if the keyboard is broken or if the cat set off a combination of keys that codes something into the PC.

A:laptop keyboard does not work but works fine with usb keyboard

The fact that a USB keyboard works fine when your built in one doesn't, proves that it is the keyboard itself (or connectors) that is damaged/defective, otherwise, if it were a software problem, the external keyboard would do the same.

Hi All,

My laptop had a blue screen and keyboard stops working as well, I plugged the external keyboard and re-install the windows, now half of the keys are working and half dosent.

I am wondering has the kyboard damaged, I am also not sure if the I replace the keyboard will it work?

is there any settings in bios or any utility can fix the problem, could some one please advise?


A:Keyboard stops working - USB external keyboard is fine

Hello Nysoh

On this virtual way nobody can say for sure what the problem is but if the internal keyboard is not working properly first step is keyboard replacement. If the problem still persists then troublemaker can be keyboard port or keyboard controller.

As far as I know BIOS has nothing to do with this issue.

Hi guys, Something really strange started happening two days ago. Out of the blue the following keys stopped working: GHBackspaceWindows [email protected]' The laptop is a couple of years old and a bit dusty, so I took it to the local shop to get the keyboard replaced and cleaned. Seemed to be working fine when I left the shop. Then, a little while ago the space key and P stopped. Five minutes later they started working again but ctrl stopped and N is temperamental. I haven't spilt anything on it or knocked it. Any ideas what's going on?

Hi I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite Click Pro and at the top two of the keys increase decrease the screen brightness much like two of the shortcut up (Toshiba keyboard locks Satellite) Keyboard keys at the top of a Mac do the same Well I discovered that if I press the key to decrease the screen brightness too quickly and bring it down all the way to the lowest brightness and keep clicking it turns off the keyboard As in none of the keyboard keys will work anymore The only Keyboard shortcut locks up keyboard (Toshiba Satellite) way I know of to fix it is to restart the keyboard I'm wondering if there's a way to disable the fact that it does this and find a way to turn the Keyboard shortcut locks up keyboard (Toshiba Satellite) keyboard back on without restarting the computer since it is quite frankly annoying when I have three word documents and about browser tabs open I can't figure out how to disable stop this one key by using the keyboard settings toggling the hotkeys etc Honestly I'm not even sure if this is a Windows issue or Toshiba issue Has anyone else had this problem

If under warranty, return this to the store ASAP for replacement/repair. There's not much we can recommend you do, hardware-wise, that you can do and not void the warranty.
I suspect the keyboard may be sticking,,, you can try another USB KB for troubleshooting though. Plug in the USB KB and see if that behavior is duplicated using that KB.
