Help with Midi Keyboard channels

Think somebody can help me with this, I have one of those dark gray prodikey Midi Keyboards, it's regular computer keyboard with a little note input keyboard on the bottom. I thought perfect for writing music and a save of space.  The only problem is that it stuck on channel one and i don't how to change the channels on the keyboard.  Is there a way to set up the hotkey to just change it... thanks if you can help

Do you really need to change channels? I know in Sibelius, the channel changes for input based on the staff I am composing in. I can't exactly remember from Finale but I believe it is the same way. I don't think I have ever had to do a channel change on my actual midi keyboard.

Ditto that. Working in Finale or Sibelius, the channel is properly selected by simply clicking in the staff you're going to edit. This only works when MIDI THRU is activated in Sibelius. If you're using Finale, be sure MIDI THRU (in the midi menu) is set to ";smart.";
GBass said it -- I don't think I've ever needed to change it to compose anything.�� That said, there would have to be a channel selector in the driver for the keyboard.�� Either it's in the Creative software or on the keyboard itself.
