I’m as well a proud owner of a Korg M1 and I do it as follows:
Add an Instrument track in cubase and play the Keyboard of the M1 to record the midi notes.
(Is probably not that, what you’re asking for )
Use the M1 COMBINATION
Go to COMB Edit mode.
Place your voices as you like - upto 8 sounds are possible.
Selctect the midi channel per voice (e.g. from 1-8).
Go to cubase and add 8 midi tracks.
Select on each cubase midi track the channel (1 to 8)
Now the crucial Point is, that the Korg M1 has only 4 audio outputs.
Therefore, if you like to record the audio tracks of your 8 voices made in the Korg M1 COMB,
you have to select:
- first 1-4 as A,B,C,D
- and afterwards 5-8 as A,B,C,D.
- Import of the sequenced songs
Add a midi track in cubase.
Select the midi channel to ANY
Press record. Play the sequencer in Cubase.
(That was your question, I think )
I admitt, some sounds in the Korg M1 are still worth to do this add works - no softsyth can offer it for that money.
Hope it helps or gives you at least the power to have your own ideas, where to start on.
