I use Cubase LE AI elements 9.5 on a hp laptop running windows 10. I am attempting to record audio directly from my Yamaha psr-e333 keyboard to my computer. I have installed the midi driver from Yamaha.
From day one I have struggled with this software, I find it extremely complex, and having watched numerous videos from cubase it still makes no sense to me, there are certain features that do not add up. For example, I have spent a large portion of today trying to record my keyboard, I managed to do it, but it will ONLY play back through the keyboard itself while the rest of the audio plays through my laptop. I also noticed while recording that the audio only recorded if I used the dual feature on my keyboard, i.e. two voices at once e.g. dual piano or piano and strings. That makes no sense to me. Additionally it was recording only basic piano and negating any of the dual voices and sustain, it once picked up just strings on their own, and I dont understand why its removing all of the effects etc from my keyboard.
I tried to use Halion sonic, but then it wasnt picking up anything I was playing on my keyboard, so I dont know what im doing wrong.
Essentially none of this makes any sense to me, and I’m trying very hard to understand the system so that I can use it to record my music, and it would mean the world to me to be able to just sit and record things but my only experience with recording software other than cubase is Audacity… I feel like I need to be sat next to someone who fully understands cubase and go through every detail, so I can actually use it, because I just end up pressing loads of stuff and ending up actually figuring little bits out but that’s highly unproductive and frustrating.
Please help someone!
