MIDI(Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a standard data transfer system used exclusively for instrumentation. A side from amps 7 recording equipment many PCs, laptop & TVs have MIDI access built into them. If they can interface with a UBS connection it is more likely the exception rather than the standard. Below is a link to the users manual for your keyboard. Start reading on page 39. http://www.manualslib.com/manual/593746/Radio-Shack-Md-1700.html?page=38#manual
There are quite a few ways to do this.The simplest way is to just use the USB port on the keyboard and run that into the computer. If your keyboard has a USB, then you dont need the midi to connect to a computer. You would still use the midi however for other sound modules and items that do have a midi in port however. If you dont have a midi in then you need to get hardware that does as a computer will not have a midi in. There are basic adapters that you can get that just have a midi connector to usb adapter. There are external sound card devices that will do this like the tascam 144. There are also simple devices made my midiman such as the 2x2 midisport that allows you to connect up to 2 midi devices to a computer. The cheapest quickest method if you are just starting out is the midi to usb cable though. Places like walmart, best buy, and radio shack will generally have these. However with making digital music the cheapest is not generally ideal but will get you by in the meantime.If you ever plan on recording audio like vocals or guitar then I would recommend just getting something like the Tascam 144 MK II as it will allow you to input midi, spdif, vocals with phantom power, guitar line in, through it with 24/94 bit conversion, audio drivers, and a bit of software for simple settings configuration. This would be more of an intermediate interface. If you want some pro solutions, then I would recommend going to the pro's at a musician store and talking to them.
That's going to depend. What you really need are the drivers. If it's not detecting them automatically, try going here: http://tascam.com/product/us-122/downloads/ and downloading the drivers, although it does not seem they have any drivers available for any Windows versions beyond XP
You want to download the ASIO driver(s) and install those again. You then have to go to whatever audio software app you are using, and 'set up' the ASIO drivers within your audio software itself (read the manual or look at some of the headings under Preferences or Settings in the software window itself).
Also go to the Audio Settings panel and configure your Audio Ins / Outs, make sure they are selected and 'enabled'. You should see Behringer USB listed when you click on the audio out tab. Just click on it with the mouse button and release.
You also may have to go to the ASIO Control Panel (again from within whatever audio app you are using) and tweak whatever settings are there. Make sure the ASIO driver is selected (not the MS Win or Realtek or whatever), and check that the audio outputs are likewise enabled there.
(Some apps won't output any sound while you are adjusting the Control Panel settings etc, so you may have to adjust the settings, then close the panel, before you'll be able to test for audio output, then if it doesn't work, go back into the panel and adjust some more and try again.)
If you are trying to control a VST plugin or VST Instrument via MIDI, you just need to go into your audio app's Midi Settings panel and likewise make sure your Midi controller kbd (or other Midi source) is selected and enabled, and that the appropriate Midi channel is enabled (or you can just select Omni Mode and it will listen to all Midi channels).
Of course you must have some sort of MIDI interface to connect your keyboard to your computer. Many new kbds have USB in which case it will send/receive midi via USB (tho you may have to install the proper drivers for your specific keyboard first. - they will be on your install CD that came with the keyboard or available on the internet).
You are correct, there is no "voice generator" within the Tascam US-144. It can simply transmit the very primitive note-on note-off type data to a Sound Module or keyboard (like a Roldan SoundCanvas), and then that would generate the actual waveforms.
A SoundCanvas would suit your needs well, as you could run the midi out to this voice generator, and then run the stereo output of that back through the Tascam and into the computer for recording.
