I am trying to record some piano sounds from my Roland Fantom G8, but it sounds very tinny and thin. It does not sound the way that it is supposed to. I usually only play VST’s so I do not do a lot of audio recording. I created an audio track in Cubase 5 and I am unsure if I should do a stereo audio track or two separate mono tracks panning opposite of each other.
My keyboard is connected as follows:
I have two 1/4" monster cables going from the back of my keyboard (output 1 and 2) and going into my Presonus Firestudio Project (input 1 and 2 - both are boosted instrument lines). Of course, my Presonus is connected to my Mac (OSX 10.8.5) and I am getting a signal and sound when I record. The problem is that my high class Roland piano sounds are sounding more like crappy Casio piano sounds when I play them back.
Am I missing something or is there a special way to connect this so that it sounds right?
