I have a Yamaha keyboard (a PSR-3000, to be exact), which I would like to connect as a MIDI device to a Linux computer (a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian). It shows up in lsusb as:

Bus 001 Device 068: ID 0499:102b Yamaha Corp. PSR-3000

Therefore, what I do need is a MIDI/USB driver such as one on the official Yamaha website. Does anybody know if such a driver exists for Linux, and if so, where I can find it?


For this to work a reboot is required; then a special device /dev/midi1 will appear.

  • Doesn't loading the snd-usb-audio module work?

  • @CL. Maybe, but I didn't have to try.
