Hi all. I'm new to the whole midi set up thing. All I want to do is play sounds from the QS8 and record them onto the computer through Cubase. I have an Alesis QS8 and Cubase running on an Athlon based computer.

I have the QS8 connected to the computer through the game port using the midi in/out cable that came with the synth back in 98 when I got it. I have Cubase running fine on the comp, but I can't record anything and am not getting any signal from the QS8.

I was told by Alesis that I would need to get what's called a Y-cable in order to transmit the audio from the keyboard into the computer. I wanted to know is this true and if there's anything more that I need to know.
