Connecting a Slim Phatty

Postby husker » Tue Feb 07, 2017 9:19 am

Greetings,

From the outset, let me say I am very new to computer based music. I'm a new "hobbyist" but really enjoy keyboards and computers. I have always wanted a Moog, and am very close to buying my first one (probably a Slim Phatty). I have some questions regarding "connections" which I hope someone can answer.

I currently have a Roland FA-08, a Tascam US 4x4 audio interface, and a computer. Everything is connected fine and working well. Here is my current setup:

I want to use the FA-08 as the "controller" for the Slim Phatty, but I have some requirements.

1) I would like to continue to record the FA08 audio to the DAW
2) I would like to be able to record the PHatty audio to the DAW
3) I need the FA-08 to still be able to send midi to the DAW for VSTi

Would connecting everything like this work? Does anyone have any other suggestions?

That setup will certainly work, giving you bi-directional control of both keyboards from either one (provided the MIDI channels on each are set correctly).

If you only want to control the Phatty from the FA-08, you can eliminate the Phatty MIDI out to FA MIDI in connection.

Hope this helps, and welcome to the forums! :D

Thank you. If I only want to control the Phatty from the FA-08, will this work as well?
