I have an Alesis QS8 keyboard hooked into my sound card. When I play MIDIs, it plays through that, so the instruments are much more lifelike that those used on my AWE64. But, when I have my headphones into the keyboard directly, the quality of the MIDIs improves noticeably, and it is because they are in stereo. I’d like to record the MIDIs in stereo, but I think my sound card won’t let me. I have it plugged in to the line in port. Are there settings I should adjust, or does the AWE not do stereo recording, and if not, what is a good, cheap card that does?
(The cable setup connecting the two is like this: 1/4" to 1/8" headphone jack converter, to 1/8" headphone-to-2-female-RCAs Y cable, 2-male-RCAs-to-1/8" headphone, which plugs into the line in. Is the stereo lost in there somehow?)
