Good points, Grim.
My Tyros 5 is not in the rack. I believe it resides as a standalone instrument. Its audio out L/R goes to my Steinberg CI1 interface, which goes to my Yamaha HS8 powered monitors. The CI1 is connected by USB to my PC. I assumed the MIDI tracks were mono because I only see a single light dancing in the track meter. I know stereo audio tracks have two slim meters dancing in the track meter. Now, are my MIDI tracks mono or stereo? I thought they would at least look the same on the meters.
This whole audio routing is a total and complete mystery to me. I really wish someone would explain it with diagrams not just the techno-terms. I can’t keep track of the signal path explanation when everyone only talks about “routing back to this bus” or “sending this out to the VST rack.” I know that’s a silly way to put it, but I really know nothing about the signal routing, beyond getting my MIDI to work. Thank heavens I’m only using one stereo pair from my sound module and two keyboards.
More help welcomed. Thanks.
