    My favorite kind of music. A guitar, a story, and a person with a nice voice. Thank you!
  2. bdickens Thanks for the link. Very helpful!
  3. Thank you for the links! After looking I couldn't find them myself.
  4. I downloaded a virtual instrument Ample Guitar m 2 lite. There are lots of options and different screens. Is there any place that can explain what the different options do or do I have to experiment with them all and figure them out myself. Thanks
  5. Thank you very much for the responses! I was confused which is not uncommon when trying to learn this DAW.
  6. bdickens your telling me I need both Din cables and 1/4" cables? Correct?
  7. John, thank you for the diagram. What I am thinking is that the diagram shows me is that not only do I have the Din cables plugged in to the Focusrite but the 1/4" plugs plugged into 1/L and 2/R on the Korg and on the Focusrite line inputs 3 and 4 for the Korg keyboards to work. Is that correct?
  8. This what I ended up doing. For the Casio I used the UM-ONE mk2 which is Din plugs to a USB port on the computer. For the Korg Wavestation EX I plugged in 1/4" jacks into the Korg at the back of the keyboard into 1/L and 2R. Then into the Focusrite 4i4 into line outputs 3 and 4. If I want to use the Korg Z1 I plug the 1/4" jacks into the Z1 at the back line/mono and R. Then into the Focusrite 4i4into line outputs 3 and 4. I am able to record with all these arrangements. From what I can figure out from the tutorial this is not correct. But I don't know what else to do. Except for the Casio the Din cords do not work with either of the Korgs. Yes, I know audio and midi are different. I can do audio with the mic and a guitar.
  9. This is what happens. If I connect the Roland UM-one which uses Din plugs and plugs into a USB port to a Casio WK-1200 I get sound through the speakers. If I connect the UM-one to the Korg EX I do not get any sound through the speakers or movement on the sound meter. If I connect Din plug cables to the Korg and the Focusrite 4i4 I get no sound through the speakers or no movement on the sound meter. If I take the same Din plug cables from the Korg and plug them into the Casio WK-1200 and the Din plugs of the Focusrite 4i4 I get sound through the speakers and on the sound meter which to me means the cables are good and the UM-one is good. I contacted Focusrite support and they did some tests and said the 4i4 is working fine. They also had me run a file called MIDI-OX which showed the Korg was producing MIDI. I was assuming that if you wanted MIDI that attaching Din cables would work.

    Quiet Piano

    I can play Quiet Piano with my mouse. Is there any way to play it with my midi keyboard? Thanks
  11. Thank you for the tutorials John! I will watch them again and again. I am missing something and just have to figure it out.
  12. Thanks for the reply! The speakers connected to a Pioneer receiver from the Focusrite and then from the receiver to the computer.
  13. Thanks for the response! It takes me awhile to process what you and John are trying to tell me. I just have a Focusrite 4i4 that goes into a USB port in the computer. I have a Korg Wavestation EX plugged into the Focusrite 4i4 and this play sounds through my speakers just fine. If I use the same plugins for the Korg Z1. I must have something plugged in wrong because John has told me the Focusrite 4i4 should be able to attach two keyboards. I will work on it and let you know how it goes. Again, thank you very much. have a great day.
  14. Thank you for the replies! I am expecting to hear a sound from the Korg. I am expecting audio from my computer speakers or headphones "If the audio output of the Z1 isn't connected to anything, you won't hear it." I don't know what this is. By audio interface do you mean Focusrite 4i4. In the screen shot the output is set to 3+. If I play a key on the Korg the sound meter goes up and down but no sound. If I set the output to 1+ I get sounds, but not the Korg sounds. I'm missing something.
