Thread: Using Keyboard Sounds

  1. #1

    Default Using Keyboard Sounds

    I am new to using recording programs such as Reason, Cubase & FL......I have been having a hard time using and trying to figure out how to use or transfer the sounds from off my keyboard instead of using the plugins or vst programs. I have the keyboard plugged in as of now thru the USB plug in the back of the keyboard. And I have a new interface on the way that I ordered, so is there any way that I can use the sound from off my Korg?

    PLEASE SOMEONE HELP!???!?

    You gotta go into the mixer and select your IN at the top. Generally you cant use the sounds from the keyboard for sequencing into a daw like you would with vsts, only the "midi data" meaning like keys knobs and fader motion etc but not sound. You sequence with the keyboard and record the audio clips. Just get it to sound good on your keyboard first then record it.

    Just watch this you'll see what I mean[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiCBEm6Qy-Y]YouTube - Fl-Studio Tutorial How To Import Your Actual Keyboard Sounds Into FL-Studio[/ame]

    Its the same with cubase, just select the In as your source from where ever you plugged in you cord to record. Line In/ Mic.

    Good look, I'ma have to sit down and prolly watch this and pause do my own lil step by step measure of what I'm doing. I wish the video was for Reason instead but I know its prolly the same shit just a different program really. BUT REAL GOOD LOOK!! I appreciate it my dude

    Wait will it pick up the sounds from the keyboard if I'm using the USB plug? Or do I need an interface? I have a interface that I ordered which is:

    M-Audio USB MIDIsport 1x1 MIDI Interface and more MIDI Interfaces at GuitarCenter.com.

    Will this get the job done?

    It wont pick up the sound with neither midi or usb, both of those only send out data. You record from the output usually found in the back of your keyboard but if you dont have one use the headphone port those are audio. When you record don't have it extra loud or it will distort.

    Which keyboard do you have btw? You might be thinking of a audio interface, rather than a midi interface but im not sure of your situation.

    For reason you cant do any kind of audio recording in it, only midi data. Id suggest doing a rewire to cubase or something else that you have that records.

    The midi sport should make it possible for you to record the midi data, which basically means your can use it for you vsts. I have something similar to that.
