Hey Folks

I have a
Yamaha CS1x
Focusrite 2i2
M-Audio Midi Sport 8x8
Reason 9

My aim is to hook these up so I can use my keyboard sounds along with Reason sounds

Is this possible?

Thanks for any help provided

Forgot to mention I am using a Dell XPS L521X Laptop.

Connections as follow...
Yamaha CS1x Midi Out >> MidiSport 2x2 InB
Yamaha CS1x Audio Out to Focusrite 2i2
MidiSport USB Out to Laptop
Focusrite 2i2 USB Out to Laptop
Reason
Audio Card Driver 2i2
MidiSport and 2i2 USB connected to Laptop.

I get Midi signal just no sound from 2i2 or Laptop headphones.
Under audio input in Reason it says "No Audio Inputs Available Please check your sound card settings".

Hi DrDave,

This looks like you've set it up all correctly. You just need to go from the audio outputs of the Yamaha keyboard into the 2 inputs of the Scarlett 2i2. You will need to make sure Line is switched.

It sounds like you just need to set up the Scarlett 2i2 as the input and output device in Reason's preferences then create some audio tracks monitoring the correct inputs and it should work. You may also want to check the internal global settings in the keyboard to make sure the audio output isn't disabled.

If you have any further questions about this please get in touch and open a support ticket directly by navigating to https://support.focusrite.com/hc/en-gb/requests/new

Best regards,
