Help! My Casio MIDI keyboard won't record!

Hello everyone! I am having trouble recording with my Casio CTK-573 keyboard. I am using an AudioBox USB to connect it to my keyboard. I can record with other softwares, such as MuseScore and MAGIX Music Maker, but it won't with Studio One Artist! It recognizes that the keyboard is pressing keys, (The orange arrow next to the MIDI icon lights up when I touch a key, and if I click on it, the log recognizes that keys are being pressed) but when I try to record (I dragged Mai Tai to that track, and set the track's input to my keyboard) by clicking the record button, nothing! No sound, and no lines from the MIDI. I think it has to do with how I set up my keyboard, or the fact that there's no driver for this keyboard installed on my computer. One more thing: Can you respond to answers without making a whole new thread, or whatever it is called?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry to hear about the recent issues you have been experiencing.

Please read these articles for setting up External MIDI Devices with Studio One 3:

Also, make sure the keyboard is set to external MIDI clock.

1. For the piano keys of your Casio, you will need to create a New Keyboard, with the MIDI Receive From assigned to the MIDI port the device is connected to, but don't need the MIDI "Send To." Set this to Default Instrument Input.

2. To use the Sounds of the Casio, you will need to create a New Instrument with the MIDI "Send To" set to your keyboard MIDI port. Check all the MIDI clock options.

3. Also, to monitor the sounds from the Casio, you will need to connect audio cables from your Casio to the audio interface of your computer.

Then check out this article on setting up to record using an External Device: Setting up to record with an External MIDI Device Studio One:
