Any microkorg vocoder users? MIDI HELP Crashes, possibly midi interference.

Wanted help recording midi data, than sending that midi data through the microkorg to record. I’ve read the manual and I’m close to success but something is causing cubase to crash at random. I suspect it’s an issue with midi messages interfering with each other. I’m using LE on a sub par windows laptop… nothing seems to be maxing out though. I believe I only need a midi track and audio track to pull this off? I’m able to record arpeggiator note data and send back to the synth to an audio track but something will not have it in my system.
