Default How to record from the keyboard - 22-07-2011, 04:14 PM

Hi, i've been listening to all the music on this site and would'nt mind putting some of my own stuff on,but i dont know what to use to record myself. I know that a lot of the keyboards have in built recorders, but i use a PSR9000 and a KN6000 at the same time,so i'm guessing i need some sort of exturnal recorder. I have a mini disc recorder but it doesnt have a built in mic.
Also if i can record myself how do i get the recording from the mini disc to the computer and what format would i need it to be in to upload it ?

If you just use the 9000 then all you do is choose the song, choose an appropriate style, go to song control, press record, press play and then start playing. This will record onto the internal sequencer as a midi file. You need to convert that to a .wav file either to the hard disc in the keyboard (if you have one) or into your PC .
Use a program (free) called Audacity to record to a .wav file and then if Audacity can't convert it to an Mp3 file then use another free program called Shaungs to convert to an Mp3. The Mp3 then needs to be uploaded to a host site like 4shared or boxnet and a link provided to that song in your subsequent post.
If you are using the KN6000 as well as the 9000 then you would need to route both to an audio recorder (preferably not through a mic) . Audacity in your PC would do the job - again convert to Mp3.
Hope this helps - feel free to ask more questions.
Cheers
Spike

Cheers Spike for replying so quick, could you explain in a bit more detail how to record and play back on the keyboard. i've got as far as recording the song (i think) but then not sure how to get it to play back to me, and as far as i know i have got a hard drive,not that i've ever been able to work out how to use it !!!

If you have recorded your song using 'song control' and pressed 'stop' at the end of the recording then to hear it play back just press 'play'
If you have the 9000 Pro you will have 76 keys and a hard drive, otherwise the hard drive is an optional extra.
It's all in the manual, however the manuals are not that easy to understand so if you're stuck I'' download the manual and try to explain things simply
Cheers
