I would like to ask a question about using a Yamaha PSR-SX900 keyboard directly with Cubase Pro 11. Transferring the midi data into Cubase works well, but, after that, few standard Cubase manipulations seem to work. For example, once I have got a track as I want it (and editing, amending is so much easier in Cubase than on the Yamaha keyboard) , I can’t render it in place as an audio track and therefore add processing or control it in the mix in the usual way.
I am pretty new to all of this and although I have found your online tutorials extremely helpful, it seems as though few people like to play/compose music as a rough multi-track “performance” on a keyboard, as I do, and then drop it into Cubase for (in my case, a lot of) tidying-up, individual track processing, mixing and mastering.
The voices on the Yamaha really are something special, so that’s I am particularly keen to do things this way. Pre-sales advice from Yamaha indicates a complete synergy between Cubase and Yamaha (I understand Steinberg and Yamaha work closely together) but, as it stands, it’s not working for me; and I suspect this is because of lack of knowledge on my part.
I have, of course approached Yamaha about this several times, but they tell me to “Talk to” Steinberg!
Any help or pointers anyone could give me would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
