What Preliminary Steps do I Need to do to Record Audio into my Windows Computer?
1) Verify how your keyboard sends audio, it will be either thru a conventional line output connection, thru the headphone output or thru USB.
2) Conventional audio connections will need to be converted to digital thru an audio interface that the recording software can utilize. This may be an audio to USB interface, firewire or a PCI card on older computers. USB is the most common and least expensive.
3) A driver that is compatible with the computers operating system will need to be loaded so your computer can recognize the interface.
4) Recording software is required to record the audio information into. This will save your performance for playback later, cd burning or conversion to mp3.
