Hi GMC

I use this keyboard: http://www.behringer.com/EN/Products/UMX610.aspx
The thing is, I cant get it to work.

First thing, I cant install the ASIO driver, but in the description is says this one doesnt need drivers to work.
So, I got a few synth VSTs, like absynth, it doesnt work there either while using reaper.

Well the power works but cant in anyway get any sound out of that keyboard.
Im a bit confused with everything.

I want to use it for recording of course and I use it in a daw..

But I would like to use the synth built in sounds to start with.. but I have just no idea anymore

I have behringer umx25. And well, it seems to work. Be sure to install usb midi drivers. After turning the power on and connecting your keyboard you should see in reaper preferences in input devices your keybord and press enable. Than add a track, aim it for recording, than select the input device.
Or maybe you should read the manual.

EDIT: got it to work with absynth..so you have do use a 3rd party program for sounds?

Btw in reaper after selecting new virtual instrument be sure to enable these options.

This is weird. When you record midi in a midi channel and play something in your keyboard, does Reaper record the midi information or the track keeps empty?

It's midi controller, not a synth as i understand.

Yes - midi keyboards are just an input device, like computer keyboard and mouse.
It sends out signals in MIDI for which notes have you played.

It doesn't come with built in sounds and every sound must be played via software.
VST instruments are exactly that - these instruments are played (triggered) by midi.

What you do is setup a midi track, make the track output to a specific VST instrument (some piano, synth, drums) and select your keyboard as input midi device. Input is your keyboard (what you play) and output is VST instrument (what you use to get the sound out from).

Thanks Bogdan, this actually cleared up my understanding on this subject as well! I had always wondered what VSTs were. smile.gif
