Just trying to figure out the best way to get the most of out of my sound recording with my synthezier. I have a yamaha s90x which has such a great sound, which most of the qualities are lost recording it into my DAW. I have a line6 ux2 as my audio interface and am using ableton live 8 for my DAW. I am plugging my keyboard directly into my audio interface through the mono output. Any additonal suggestions would be great!!
Reading the above, I don't think that your synth, or the interface is the issue.
Running a synth directly into an interface normally just gives a pretty boring copy of the original tone. When I'm recording synths, I like to run them through an amp, any amp, and mic the output.
Depending on the desired result, running through a small bit of overdrive, or a hot tube pre-amp can add a lot of harmonic content.
On the resulting audio track, a little bit of chorus, or delay can really snap some life into your tone as well.
