Keystep and Behringer UM2
« on: August 31, 2019, 11:30:32 am »

I need some help connecting these two. I was kinda doing fine without the interface but that last thing i created in garageband i noticed a lotta unwanted distortion in one line.

The store i bought these things from made it seem like it was all plug and play..

Can I use a midi to 3.5mm and 1/4 inch adapter to connect my keystep to the um2? Somewhat like this


The I saw some person with a microbrute had the same problem but the suggested cable someone linked is a dead link.

Thank you in advance.

What exactly are you trying to do?  What are you recording?
KeyStep is a MIDI controller and makes no sounds of its own so you don't need to connect it to your audio interface.
Currently running synths from Waldorf and Arturia, Drumsynths from Korg, MAM and IK Multimedia, sequencing it all with Arturia's looping steppers, mixing and recording it all with a Zoom (no DAW involved, for better or worse ;) )

UM2 is an audio interface. KeyStep is a midi controller. It doesn't have any internal sounds, therefore you won't ever connect it to the UM2. A clearer understanding of what you're actually trying to do will be helpful.
