Hi, I'm new to this group. Trying to download the MIDI controller for the SP-170s that I own (It's an older version of the keyboard with volume control and Piano Play and Sound buttons on top. I downloaded the MIDI software, but it is not identifying all of the notes. Wonder if someone has a suggestion, thanks!

There is no MIDI controller software, as such, for the SP-170. The SP-170 will generate MIDI messages on its 5-pin DIN MIDI Out port whenever a key is pressed. Those MIDI messages can then be used to control an external MIDI device, which could be a MIDI-controlled sound module or synth, another keyboard with 5-pin DIN MIDI in connection, or a computer-hosted sound module. How is the SP-170 connected to the computer?

Can the iMac "see" the Alesis USB-MIDI cable, and is the SP-250 MIDI Out connected to the Alesis cable MIDI In?

By default, the SP-250 transmits MIDI data on MIDI channel 1.

Try connecting the SP-250 via its MIDI-Out port to the MIDI-In of another device e.g. rack synth or another keyboard. If it works, suspect the USB-MIDI interface.

Have you connected to the computer yet. The SP-170s doesn't have USB to Host port, and only has MIDI Out, so you'll need to get a USB MIDI interface to be able to transfer MIDI data between your keyboard and computer.

You say you've downloaded MIDI software. What kind of software? It's hard to give any advice without knowing any details.

A really good article that explains how to connect your keyboard to a computer/smart device and things you can do once you've connected was recently published on PianoDreamers. It should answer most of your questions and give a better understand of how things work.

Here it is: https://www.pianodreamers.com/midi-connection-guide/
