Privia PX-5S Patch Script for Cubase

Using any instrument with a DAW can be challenging if the DAW doesn’t have a list of bank and program changes for your device.  We just completed the patch script for the Privia PX-5S for Cubase.   You can download the file from Casio Music Forums here: http://www.casiomusicforums.com/index.php?/files/file/246-privia-px-5s-cubase-patch-script/

 Once you have the text file you need to install it in the appropriate location so Cubase can see it.

  • Mac OS X
    “/Users/<your username>/Library/Preferences/Cubase/Scripts/Patchnames”
  • PC Windows Vista and Windows 7, Windows 8
    “System drive \Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\Cubase\Scripts\Patchnames
  • PC Windows XP
    “System drive \Documents and Settings\<your username>\Application data\Steinberg\Cubase\Scripts\Patchnames

In order to get to the folder on Windows you may have to enable the view for hidden folders in your control panel.

Once the text file is in place, go the Devices menu in Cubase.   Choose the MIDI Device Manager and choose Install Device.  Choose the Privia PX-5S from the list and you’re all set.
