hi, apologies if this topic has been covered before; I am new to this forum and fairly new to Microkorgs and digital recording.
My band recently split up and i have inherited the recordings we made from the drummer who both engineered the sessions and finished the band! I have a 10 song album that is over 3/4 complete and i’m hoping to finish it off for old times sake and a low-key digital release.
I am using Cubase Artist 6 with a Mac laptop. The sessions were recorded in an older version of Cubase.
Many of the songs have midi parts (mostly synth / piano parts and some beats) and virtual instrument tracks. I also need to add some extra VST tracks such as piano. Obviously the old MIDI parts do not play now as i don’t have the same outboard equipment.
But I have a Microkorg which off course has MIDI. I have just purchased an Alesis MIdi-USB cable to connect it to my Mac.
But now I get stuck. Can anyone help me with the basics of setting it up and generating sounds? My laptop recognises the USB connection in the Audio Midi set-up.
But do i need to add a device in Audio Midi set-up at this stage and what are the settings?
Do i need drivers for the Midi-USB cable It’s meant to be plug in and play)?
What settings do i need on the Microkorg and what settings do i need in Cubase?
The manuals and help topics for all have proved ineffective!
Any assistance much appreciated and i can send you a copy of the album when finished!
