    Default Gonna buy a Korg Microstation but i have a workstation/daw question first

    So this is the story..
    Im buying my first workstation (Korg Microstation).. I called the store up and asked them could the Microstation record into the daw with midi notes, like when playing a vst.. or did it just record in audio.. their answer wasn't very convincing..
    So my question is.. When i record from a vst.. i can make the notes smaller or bigger or move them around.. Can you do the same with keyboards/workstations or does their sounds just record as solid audio that can't be manipulated like when recording from vsts.. thank you!

    So you can record the midi notes with any midi software and manipulate them inside your software. However, weather or not it records the audio is a different story. One would need to have software patches compatible with your daw, so, software does allow this but depending on your system can produce latency. The most simple setup would be to take the midi played from your sequencer into the keyboard which will produce the audio and then feed back into the daw where you are recording that single track.

    Yeah i hear you.. They really should incorporate a feature to record the audio through midi notes as we all don't play piano professionally

    I'm not sure what that means, and i dont think you understood me... it was a lil confusing. step by step process.... 1)make midi in computer or record from keyboard, 2)edit midi in computer. 3)send midi out from computer to korg in, select instrument in korg... 5)send audio back to computer... 6)record audio. 7)mix recorded audio with multiple tracks...

    its a matter of preference, it can be done the other way, but you would need an updated soundcard, and compatible software, i like recording the audio because i prefer the sound of the recording. either way, get the korg, korgs are beautiful machines. this composition I did has some korg software amongst other things....
