  • Yamaha keyboard interface (w/Biopac EEG recording); any known issues with timing?

    In an upcoming experiment, we will be using a piano keyboard as an
    input device to SuperLab. The keyboard will most likely be a Yamaha
    CBX-K2. This keyboard has been used in published literature in a similar
    paradigm. Are there any members who can comment regarding the accuracy
    of response times using this or similar piano keyboard input devices?

    Thanks so much,

    I am not aware of anyone who has built something like this. The path of "least resistance" would be to find a MIDI-compatible keyboard, but we do not have MIDI support built into SuperLab. You might have a solution if you can find a MIDI-to-serial port converter (try this search).

      What input options are available for serial port interface?

      I have a midi-to-USB converter. How do I get SuperLab to accept inputs from a USB port? If I were to get a midi to serial port converter, how would I get SuperLab to accept inputs from the serial port? I need SuperLab to distinguish keypresses on the midi piano keyboard the way it would from a computer keyboard.

        If you were to get a MIDI-to-serial port converter, the easiest way in SuperLab would be to tell it that you are using the RB Series Earlier Response Pad Models input. See this page for a description of the output of these models. Ideally, the MIDI-to-serial port converter would be able to generate bytes that are compatible with the RB Series earlier models.

          I have used Yamaha
          CBX-K2 and am truly satisfied with its overall performance.. Im satisfied with its accuracy of response time..
