Recording performances from your keyboard to computer

Post by markymark » 07 Jul 2009, 13:05

Remember that connecting your digital/stage piano to the computer directly via MIDI or USB cable will only give you a MIDI signal which basically means that your performance will sound like theme music for a Commodore 64 computer game.

If you want to record your performances to your computer AS THEY SOUND from the keyboard, you are going to have to consider investing in a USB Audio Interface or a software generator where the sounds are actually stored on the computer.

Most guys are coping with videoing their performances and posting links which is fine and is cheaper to do. I should say, the other method mentioned above would provide a better sound quality and will give you more control over editting and arranging performances using more than one layer or sound at a time.
