Audio & Midi Recording Issues

Hi,

I’m having many issues that I cannot seem to find a solution to and it is leading to a lot of frustration.

  1. When recording my keyboard in midi, there is a delay in when the note is struck and when it is record
  2. The recorded midi notes are not accurately timed values e.g. notes overlap
  3. I can’t get my keyboard to record an audio track (I have 1/4 cables running from the out channels on the keyboard to the 1 and 2 input channels on my audio interface).

Please help.
