    also im thinkin of gettin a roland mc-909 or a triton le series for a sequencer plus extra sounds...but what i needa know is if i can store the recordings on those or if i have to go through my comp again...honestly i really wanna stay away form my computer unless its for mastering and managing clients...but if i have to go through my comp again what is a good setup to have to accomidate midi..including the soundcard and the programs to operate them....

    Cakewalk should be great for this kind of stuff. what you need is to troubleshoot from signal in to app to output.
    Are you getting sound into the windows mixer? Can you hear the keyboard in the computer's outputs? If so you probably need to chose your recording device in your windows settings/control panel/multimedia controls. If that doesn't work it may be settings in Cakewalk. Look for options or settings in Cakewalk to chose recording device or activate simultaneous record/playback. Are you opening a track and chosing the inputs properly?

    This is probably a better question for the Cakewalk forum here, I have used it but it's been a long time.
    Most important thing though is learning to troubleshoot.

    Please post exactly how you connected everything together.

    ahhh

    So, ultimately you're attempting to use USB as your input...A question...Why not your line in on your Audigy? I think they are capable of 24 bit recording...I use an audigy and am very pleased with the result...I've never had much luck recording MUSIC through USB, but then again I haven't utilized the latest and greatest.

    If you still want to use USB, it sounds like you need to change your recording device from Audigy to USB.

    Sorry Jeff, but you're not helping.

    MIDI is not audio. Its just a communications interface/protocol that is transmitting information telling a MIDI device to play a certain note for a set duration.

    If you want to record the output of your synth, you have to connect the outputs of the keyboard to the LINE IN on your soundcard and record an AUDIO track in HS.

    I was gonna say that too, brzilian, but if the xv-5050 has a USB connection to the PC, it might well be an audio connection. And it would show up as a separate audio device from the Audigy.

    If the xv-5050 does NOT put audio into the PC, the USB connection would seem to of limited value. And, in that case, I'd agree with you.

    bzilian...what u are implying would require more midi outputs right?...there is only one comming out of my keyboard and that would go to my sound module...i think what gathering is that the output of the module goes to the soundcard line in...that way you can utilize both controller and module...otherwise it is a regular controller...wit no syth sounds form the xv-5050...

    the only problem this poses is that i would need a midi to 1/4 inch cable..and i dont think they make them...ashdfjasdf bah!!

    You're still not understanding it. MIDI IS NOT audio.

    You need to do some reading.
