    I'm new at all of this, and would appreciated some help/advice as I'm utterly confused.

    The following are the equipments I have:

    - Yamaha Keyboard - PSR-E323 to be exact, with 1 MIDI In and 1 MIDI Out port.
    - Yamaha UX16, which is supposed to directly connect the keyboard to my computer.
    - Shure microphone
    - A MIDI-microphone cable
    - Yamaha steinberg CI1 audio interface
    - Both Cakewalk and Cubase 5

    What I want to do is play my piano as one track, and record my voice via the mic as another, and put the two together to make a song.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance!

    Do you have it all hooked up correctly per the hookup charts?
    You should probably use Cakewalk first as that would be easier than Cubase.
    Cubase 5 is pretty advanced software if it's the full version....but why do you have two?
    Need to setup 2 tracks either one at a time or both at the same time if you want.
    Press record and start playing....
    Are you looking for someone here to walk you through the process or do you have a specific problem with your setup?
