I have a Korg 01/W, connected to a Roland Sound Canvas, connected to an Presonus Audiobox interface, connected by USB cable to my Dell laptop. I have the Light version of Cubase. The manual shows the connections using an external sound module(i.e. like my Roland) but I would rather use the Korg directly.

I tried bypassing the Roland but could not get any sound. I can get sound using the aforementioned hook up, but I'm getting sounds from both the Korg & the Sound Canvas & also latency issues which sound like what is coming from the Roland. Any suggestions?

  • What is your Korg generating? If it is purely midi data then where would you get sounds from?

According to this page the Korg only has midi output as opposed to newer devices, which also offer USB directly. So you definitely need some MIDI to USB interface, but trying a different one is always a good idea. (Presonus is not relevant for the question, since it is only handling analogue signals.)


Yamaha MD-BT01 is a wireless Bluetooth MIDI solution that you can use. If your PC is too old to support Bluetooth LE, then you will also need WIDI Bud.
