Latency is due to the audio driver for the audio card. Cubase uses ASIO-drivers (an invention by Steinberg themselves) which mean they are optimized for the sound card if the manufacturer of the sound card makes ASIO-drivers available. For sound cards that doesn't support ASIO there are workarounds such as DirectX ASIO (built-in in Cubase IIRC) and Asio4All ...

I'm afraid you are stuck as the Realtek chipset doesn't have a dedicated ASIO driver. As tomeoftom's mention in his answer, you can use the Asio4All. This will give you the ASIO interface but not necessarily the low latency that comes from using a dedicated ASIO driver. This is because Asio4all is more a interface "wrapper" than an optimized driver - it ...

I would use the sound desk. It's always on & you won't need to swap it out every couple weeks. Hopefully... :) Drawbacks? You may need to use a ground lift on your keyboard if there's hum. For a relatively stationary system like a church...no need to fiddle with batteries.

Try contacting Roland or your official Roland Service Center first. Korg and Yamaha both have reputations for helping out with their products even when they are long out of warranty. Roland doesn't have that reputation as much, but you should still start by asking them. If you can't get Roland to supply you with a chip, then look for forums where people who ...

It is rare to find a new electronic keyboard that doesn't also have MIDI. So if you want some basic sounds and the ability to play away from your computer, then go ahead and get a keyboard with sounds built into it. Dedicated MIDI controller keyboards may offer more control via knobs, faders and sometimes pads. If you need any of that stuff, then you may ...

According to the manual, your YPG-535 uses the standard controller - CC# 64 - for the sustain pedal. It is possible that Windows Media Player ignores controller data and just plays the notes. You will need to examine the MIDI File in an editor or DAW that will show you controller values as well as notes. If you see CC 64 set to ON when you played the ...

I solved this by making keyboard it self is the only output device, Synthesia will use the synthesizer in the keyboard which is a hardware thus is faster. and u will hear the sounds on the Keyboard speakers. No delay at all.

Audio First, be aware that each input jack on the interfaces you are considering (and the vast majority of audio interfaces) is mono, not stereo. So you will need 4 input jacks just to plug in your two keyboards. Admittedly, it's not entirely helpful that in their marketing language companies will say "stereo line input" when what they really have is two ...

Correct - a separate amplifier is not needed to record keyboard. Just about any decent quality 2 channel interface will do. For example look at the Lexicon Alpha Studio (about $60) - on the front you have an instrument input suitable for guitar and bass, on the rear you have stereo (L and R) line in, ideal for keyboard. Moreover there is a mic input too (...

I agree with Jay (hi Jay!!), this should be fairly straightforward to do and like Mark says you might need a DAW which will help you load the Vocoder software and route your ins and outs. Remember that for the vocoder to work you need two signals, a modulator (your voice) and a carrier (synth sound). You need to set the vocoder to receive your computer's ...

You seem to be confusing MIDI with Audio. MIDI is only for control data. It is for messages such as note on/off, pitch bend, patch change, etc. No sound goes over MIDI. When you mention "good quality MIDI sounds and effects", what you are really looking for is a synthesizer with a good set of patches, that also supports MIDI. With that out of the way, I ...

There seem to be quite different models of the Privia; the one I know doesn't actually have a real line out but a stereo headphones output. Now, this is normally not optimal for recording in a complex studio setup, but can work surprisingly well with computers' stereo line-in's. Apple is really quite decent in that regard, so you might in fact get absolutely ...

the biggest portion of latency is almost always in the software synthesizer. the lame ones (who don't use the minimum latency that the sound card says it can handle) have to be configured for the number of millisecs of audio they will buffer. Or, if they're REALLY lame, you won't be able to change that buffer size and will have to just suffer with their ...

As AJ Henderson and Warrior Bob mentioned, those cables are also MIDI interfaces. I have several of the cable-style MIDI interfaces, as well as an old eMagic AMT8 and a MOTU 828 MK2. A few of my synths with USB interfaces function as USB-MIDI interfaces, but I rarely use them for that purpose. I also have the Elektron TM-1 interface for my MachineDrum. For ...

The cable includes an in-line MIDI adapter. (MIDI and USB are not compatible signals.) M-Audio is a respected manufacturer while the other one is a no brand adapter. It might not work as well or might not support as many channels, but at $5, it's hard to go wrong giving it a try and the reviews seem to indicate it will work for your purposes. If I had to ...

See if Sibelius supports ASIO drivers (look for Asio4All for an implementation that should work without a dedicated soundcard). If your keyboard also has MIDI Out, maybe a MIDI-to-USB converter cord will be better for latency - the Roland UM-ONE, which I use and works great for Ableton, is 35-50AUD on Ebay.

There are two simple approaches that I can think of: Get a mic that doesn't pick up as much noise Get a keyboard that doesn't make as much noise The first one I don't know too much about, but something to look into is the pickup pattern. If you use a mic with a cardioid pickup pattern and can position it so the keyboard is to the rear of the mic, the mic ...

You will need to search for tutorials on "Audio Sampling", "Audio Pitch Manipulation", "Audio Editing" and "Video Editing". You will need to learn how to use a Digital Audio Workstation such as "Reaper" or "Pro-Tools". If you are starting from scratch, it's a long road ahead of you, but rewarding as you make the journey.

I also have a Blue Snowball Mic and a keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches. Getting rid of typing noise seems straight forward if you are either typing OR talking. But filtering out the typing while speaking would take quite a bit of effort and could also result in taking away sound that you want to hear that is part of your voice. For me the best solution ...

Aren't Cherry MX Blues practically designed to be loud? I heard once that DasKeyboard used to offer ear plugs as an accessory (as a joke)... I love my mechanical keyboards, but I use MX Browns any time there's going to be a mic in use (like for videoconferencing. Obviously I don't use a keyboard at all when I'm recording something important.) That said, the ...

You gonna need an audio interface (unless you got decent sound card allready, but most of them are multimedia purposed, and not the best solution for recording of any kind). Your keyboard does not support USB recording, so You'll need to use lineout jack. After getting the audio interface, you will need to just plug the instrument in and that's that ...

I think you need to provide more info before someone can really answer this completely. What kind of keyboards do you have, and, especially, what kind of output/inputs do they have? But I don't believe your description of what you want to do is possible on either of those interfaces. The 2i4 only has 2 mono inputs (these are both XLR and line-in, so you can ...

It sounds like you have "Input Quantize" turned on. In the track inspector, there is a area labeled "Input Quantize", with a drop-down list and an on-off button. Make sure the button is turned off. You might be able to press [Ctrl+Z] after recording and it should remove the quantization.

Your "MIDI-USB cable" is a MIDI interface: a computer-addressable device that accepts and sends MIDI messages through MIDI DIN jacks. In this case both of the indicated devices are specifically USB MIDI interfaces. Featurewise, there's likely no difference between them. The price differential is probably due to name and build quality. Sometimes the fancier ...

Although this is an answer that depends on another software to solve this problem, here's the approach I took for the time being. Since my host program that I'm using is Ableton live, I grouped the Kontakt player so that it plays on channel #1 of the combined instrument. Then, I recorded (in Session view) the output of the highest note in the Kontakt ...
