im having trouble connecting my keyboard to my PC.
Im using a CAsio CT-470 and i have a Soundblaster 128 OEM.

I purchased one of those MIDI cables a connected them as follows -

Connected it to the joystick port
Connected the MIDI out wire into the keyboards MIDI in socket
Connected the MIDI in wire into the keyboards MIDI out socket

but when press the key's on the keyboard i get NO sound.

So then i tried using some sequencing software, but no joy. The software
im using is Massiva, its Freeware.

I dont know whether my keyboard is switched to Logical or Non Logical, there are no
switches to indicate this.

I have had a fiddle with the setting in the Control Panel/Multimedia sections
but no luck.

The MIDI cable i am using was purchased fom an electrical shop and is not
an Official Soundblaster product. But i wouldnt have though this would make a difference.

I was wondering if anyone could help me out.
