Hearing Notes From Midi Keyboard?
I own a Korg Microstation and I can't figure out how to set it up to hear the keyboard's INTERNAL sounds with Ableton. I've already been able to use the keyboard as a controller for Ableton's instrument sounds, but I want to use the keyboard's sounds as well. I've connected a cable from the audio outputs on my keyboard to my audio interface.
I am not sure what settings I need to have in the Midi Sync tab in Live's Preferences. My audio interface and keyboard are both listed as MIDI port inputs and outputs. I don't know whether I should turn on Track, Sync, and Remote for all inputs and outputs or if I should leave some of these unselected.
When I created a midi track, I can see that ableton is receiving signal from my keyboard, but no sound. I did set up Ableton to recognize my audio interface.
I do not undersstand what I am supposed to select in the "MIDI from" and "MIDI to" options on the midi track. For "MIDI to", I have the option of selecting my audio interface, keyboard, and a few other options I don't understand. And underneath that there is a dropdown menu of channels (and I have no clue which channel would be correct... Channel 1, 2, etc). On top of that, there are "Audio to" and "Audio From" options when I create an audio track.
I've attempted to "Arm" the tracks, tried pressing the "global record button"... nothing works to get sound from the keyboard. What is it that I need to do?
