I bought the midi cables to use with a basic yamaha ps140 keyboard.......the keyboard itself doesn't have any buttons to activate midi so I assumed that it does it on its own just being hooked up to my PC ...... my sound blaster live is already configured for midi in and out but i am unable to figure out what to do far as I'm aware I should be able to play sound files I have on my pc using the a standard midi controller......but it isn't working this way......does anyone have any advise on what i need to do to get this working.....sorry if I'm not to clear.....i'm new at this........
