Need advice on syncing and recording!
« on: June 19, 2018, 05:42:14 am »
currently, I own:

tascam us800 audio interface
tascam dr-05 recording device
akai apk mini
i'm looking to buy a volca sample and sync it to the microbrute via midi. what i'm wondering is if it's possible to use the akai midi controller as a external sequencer by using its control pads.

now heres where I need advice. I'm not sure if it's even possible to use the mpk mini as an external sequencer or if I can sync everything to ableton with the gear I have. do I connect the volca to the microbrute and then connect the microbrute to the usb interface? or do I need to use the mixer/tascam as a medium? furthermore what would be the best setup to reduce latency as much as possible? i'm thinking I might have to connect each device to the interface and sync it with a DAW rather than with midi cables but I'm really not sure.

also, this is just a bonus but I have a korg kaossilator (the old one pictured here, would it be possible to throw this in the mix and sync that as well?

i'm pretty new to this so any help would be appreciated! i figure this is a rather specific question, but if this is redundant and has been answered elsewhere please point me in that direction. thanks.
