Hello, everyone. Thank you in advance for your time. I hope somebody can at least provide ideas or tips. Or, in the best case, provide a solution.
For context, I have a MIDI keyboard connected to my computer by a MIDI-to-USB cable. The problem is that my recordings have the wrong notes 25% of the time a note is pressed.
For example, after I played the Charlie Brown song on the keyboard, when played the recording through Music Maker, 25% of the notes were either missing, or they became the deepest note possible. Several of these "bad" notes were also much longer than they should be.
I tested recording on Cakewalk (free alternative software), and the recording sounded equally bad.
What could be the problem here? I'm expecting to replace one of these: the keyboard (Casio WK-3500), MIDI cable (cheap unbranded cable from Amazon, gifted to me), or the software (Magix Music Maker / Cakewalk). It's likely not my computer, which is a 2022 Legion 5 Pro Windows 11.
