I have a keystone 49 midi keyboard which I use, and I can't use it through my speakers atm because it uses the onboard sound which sucks and makes it all distorted.
I'm getting with the midi keyboard, and because it's USB, would the midi keyboard still run through the sound card?
Also when I play it through my current headset (logitech g35) I get a really annoying delay when playing through the midi (usb) keyboard.
As for the microphone, I was thinking a Blue snowball (will also be able to use it for acoustic recordings so that should be nice). Would I have any problems just using it as a desktop microphone for things like skype as well (with audiophile headphones).
What audiophile headset would you recommend?
As those of you who have followed this column for any length of time can attest, headphone mixing is one of the big no-no's around these parts. In our humble opinion, headphone mixes do not translate well in the real world, period, end of story. Other than checking for balance issues and the occasional hunting down of little details, they are tools best left for the tracking process.
I'm trying a few VSTs and seriously some of them have such a distorted sound, I'm sure it's my sound processing.
