The info in that link cleared everything up for me. Thanks. Why not just start the chain with the M50? [M50]-out > in-[groovebox]-thru > in-[virus]-thru > in-[KS4] Wouldn't that work? Control the virus with the M50 on its own channel. Sync from the groovebox? Maybe even control the groovebox with th...

I think I understand what you mean about the MIDI implementation of the 303. Are you talking about its ability to control other gear? If so, I'm not looking to control anything else with it (at this stage). I just basically want to add a drum machine and have it keep everything else in time. Ideally...

MIDI Idiot, here.

Okay. I know I can plug my controller into my Virus to get it to make noise and change settings, but I'm still a bit wet behind the ears with the full capabilities of MIDI. I believe other than direct control as mentioned above, that it is also a way to transfer data (presets, etc.), similar to the ...

So it's basically just a box that says "42" when you push a button? A portable solid state Deep Thought, if you will.

Got my MiniKorg about 12 years ago. It spent about 10 years in storage. I figured out what to do with it about 2 years ago when I had something to plug it in to. If only I knew then...

MIDI Head, No. Mac Head, Yes. Whether you have a switch of sorts, or just unplug the interface from one to the other, it's probably going to take the same effort. I could imagine the system hangs if you do so, anyhow. So there must be a restart now and then. I think your best bet is to just install ...

My two cents: I've got a SoundCraft CompACT10 for my rig and think it's perfect for one-man recording. It can take anything you can throw at it: XLR, 1/4" TS & TRS and RCA. It's got 4 Mono & 6 Stereo tracks. 3 band EQ. No busses. Stereo outs would plug right into your sound card. I needed something ...
