I bought an Korg MS2000 about 6 months ago and I am really happy with everything about it, except when I bounce down from midi to audio, a lot of the sound quality is lost. I understand that this should happen to a certain extent with any synth, but it is making sounds which sound the nuts in midi, sound really 'tinny' when they are bounced down.

If anyone here also owns an MS2K, and has had a similar problems or if anyone has any suggestions as to why this is happening I would be very grateful to find out!!

Cheers!!

Sounds to me like there are two copies of the sound being recorded on top of each other which are delayed by a very small amound, causing most of the sound to be cancelled out. If you're using on-board sound, make sure you only have one channel turned on in the Windows mixer recording properties, (Line In by preference, rather than "What you hear" as this can cause problems if you're also monitoring through the sequencer).

How are you recording them as audio?
I'm using a Behringer 4 channel mixer to feed the audio into my M-Audio PCI card.

M-Audio has it's own properties and has no 'what you hear' :Sad:

I'm not at home at the moment but when I am, I'll check out the settings!!

It's not the card then.

Plug the synth straight into the M-Audio card? The Behringer can only add noise to the signal anyway, unless you're having to boost the level coming out the synth. Use the M-audio control panel to monitor the input levels on H/W In 1/2 to make sure the record level is nice and healthy.
