Noobie firebox/XP-80/Cubase MIDI question
Quick Noobie question.
Just hooked up my old Roland XP-80 synth to my new Firebox interface. Using the included Cubase LE software. I can't seem to record midi correctly. It won't record like it sounds. For example, my synth baseline sounds like a piano. I assume it is a midi mapping problem?
DO I set up the XP-80 as a performance and then play it directly to my computer? I guess I seem to be having problems adding the XP-80 as a MIDI device. Any help for a noobie would be appreciated....
what I really meant to ask.....
As I re-read my post I think it is not clear what I am asking.
Really what I want to know is how do I record "WHAT I HEAR" from my synth onto my computer. I seem to feel that if I somehow could add my xp-80 as a MIDI device in cubase all would be well.
Or, should I be recording through the audio out of my synth?
Please help a poor noobie.
