Default Convert midi files to audio with Gigasampler sound

Hi all.

I have MBox and Tascam US-122 usb soundcards.
It is impossible to have them both connected (usb overloaded), so whether I use ProTools or Gigasampler at a time.

I'd like to use the sounds I have with gigasampler with the midi I program within PT. I thought I should record this midi to audio outside of ProTools and then import the wav back to my PT session. So what I do is : export Midi from ProTools.
Then I open it with Cubasis (shipped with Giga and US-122) that I set up to playback through Gigasampler. No Problem. But then, I cannot record that to an audio file!!!!!! (found no way to do it at least...

So my question : how should I do ??

I thought that using PT free might be the solution (hardware independant so I could use it with the US122 with Gigasampler) BUT it does not run on winXP...

Any other Idea?

Thank you!!

Thanks Cliffy-Boy.
I actually hadn't read that...
But my set-up is already ok for playback! I sequence from Cubasis and use Gigastudio24 as a synth.

The problem is : HOW TO RECORD the output of Giga ?

I'm surfing the net and it seems to be a standard question... no standard answer for the US122 though...

Thanks.

I don't know much about cubasis - it's recording capabilities. I did this with Cubase Sx and Logic - It may be a routing issue. If you take the output thru a small mixer and route the outs to your audio interface, could you not press rec on cubasis? The midi will trigger giga whose audio will come back into to a cubasis audio track.

Yes that's exactly what I want to do, but no success...
I get an empty wav file (while I can hear the midi played)...

Well I directly sent a question to Tascam... may take long, but they are in the best position to answer...

Thank you anyway!
Cheers.

try recording at a lower bit rate. If Tube is on, turn it off. ( May only be available in SX)
