Confused I have inherited the MOTU midi express XT digital interface and have been trying to get sound from my Korg Karma keyboard connected with a midi cord to the Express XT and into Digital Performer to record.Do i need another cord going out from Express XT to the computer?

I got Digital Performer to recognize the Express XT it says "MIDI Express XT All Cables - 1" on the track but when I record there is nothing recorded. What am I missing? Does anyone have a clue? I am confused which cable to choose: the number 1 or 2 or so forth. I assume 1 and then add up as I go to more tracks?

I'm also confused about the default as there are generic numbers to choose.
I have the Express XT programed to Live Keyboards.

And finally is local control supposed to be on or off, I forgot.

I appreciate anyone's time in reading all of this.
Thank you,
J.

Did you use the Audio-Midi app?

It´s in /Applications/Utilities
Basically this is the place to set up all midi devices and interfaces.
Some DAWs can kinda ignore and use its own port access stuff, but I am pretty sure Digital Performer is using the system settings ( as set up by the Audio Midi utility. )

did you connect the midi out of the karma to the midi in of the midi interface?

Elektro thanks I will experiment with the midi map which is a new concept that rings a bell of remembrance from one of my recording computer classes. thanks. I'll be back.
