Hi everyone,

I am at my very beginning in all these recording issues. I have the Presonus Audiobox USB and Studio One 2.0.3
I would like to record my Korg SP-250 as a midi keyboard in Studio One, but after trying for ours, I did not succeed. I already configured the keyboard as my default keyboard in Studio One but I don't understand how to get what I play into my computer.
Thank you very much for your help!

Just to get you started:

1. drag the instrument you want into the main view
2. this creates a track automatically
3. choose the sound you want to play in the actual instrument
4. click the record arm button

Now, if your keyboard is set up correctly, you should now be able to play the instrument. See the short vid below....

Thank you very much for your quick answer.
Unfortunately, I can't find my midi keyboard in the instrument list on the right side. Do you have an idea what could be wrong?

Set it up as a generic keyboard.

Phermann.
Please clarify:
Do you want your Korg to be a midi generator and play the internal sound in S1
OR
Do you want to record the sounds available on the Korg?

Two different beasties.

At the moment, I am equipped only to use my Korg as a midi keyboard. I am already using it with another music software (Finale 2012) and it works. Now I would like to record things via Studio One and I have got some trouble doing so.

But the question is this.... what sounds are you trying to hear? Are you trying to hear your Korg's sounds? Or are you trying to hear sounds from S1?

Two completely different things.

When you try to record, do you see the midi notes going into the sequencer, but you're getting no sound?

In fact, I would like to hear a piano sound but it doesn't matter to me whether I will hear exactly my Korg sound or a piano sound included in Studio One. Unfortunately, when my Korg is plugged to my PC, I don't hear nor see anything in Studio One that could be related to my playing.

Okay, so here's the deal.

The reason why you hear the piano in Finale is probably because it has an internal piano sound within the software that your Korg's midi is triggering. I've never used Finale, but i'm 99% confident in saying that.

So, in S1 (or any other music DAW for that matter), you need something to trigger. The simplest way is to just drag and drop a piano into the browser. S1 obviously comes with sound content (when purchased legally... smh). Just make sure you have your keyboard installed (which it sounds like you do) and the track is receiving your midi data (which it's automatically setup to do).

If you don't have the sample instruments S1 comes with... uhhhhhhh, you're pretty much pirating and I'm not gonna help you do that.

What, if any, audio interface are you using?
How are you plugging your Korg into the computer?

Thanks to CPhoenix, it worked!
I have a Presonus Audiobox USB and my version of Studio One came along with the Audiobox (so it is a completely legal copy!)
I am happy to hear my Korg being able to play all the sounds included in S1.
Now, I have got another question. When I click on the record icon on the left side of the track it just deselects the recording option (the button is red and turns white after clicking)
What do I have to do to be able to record what I am playing?
Many thanks to all of you helping me to start working with S1!

^S1 is automatically setup to record. When the button is Red, you're ready to rock n roll. Just simply begin playing music. When you deselected it, you turned it off.

Any instrument you drop into S1 is ready to record right then and there. The tracks arm themselves automatically.
