Found the forum... have some very specific issues. I have somewhat of a "What should I get?" question. But It's more of a, "This is what I have, how can I...?" thread. First I know I need a midi interface. I've put off buying one until I figure out what I'm doing. My set up is Mackie 24.8 mixer, Alesis HD24 recorder, V-Drums (TD12 module from 2005), Alesis Qs6, then everything else (guitars, bass, vocals) mic'd as needed through the Mackie. For software I have Sonor 3. So let's say I came up with a great riff on the keyboards and I wanted to use midi to both write (note by note) and record the pattern, then have it play back with the HD24 so I can record other instruments with it. How would I accomplish that with what I have, assuming I get the right midi interface? Also, what is the right (cheap) interface to get?
Thank you for your help.

Sometimes I record my MIDI stuff straight into the computer via a USB connection. But if I use my other keyboard, it connects via MIDI cables to my audio interface, which has MIDI connections. In both cases, I record the MIDI stuff into Reaper. The HD24's got MIDI connections on the back, so that's one way you could do it. But I know nothing about Sonar 3. Does it record MIDI?
