I know many of you will cringe when you hear my question, but I'm okay with that. As you probably hear a thousand times, I'm completely new to this kind of hardware. I have a microkorg on it's way, and I want to be able to use a drum machine like the alesis sr18 with it. for now, i'm not really concerned with recording the music, I just want to be able to have fun with both the microkorg and sr18 together.
can someone explain to me in simple terms how I can do this?
from reading another post on this thread, I know that I can hook the two together with a midi cable, but what else am I going to need for sound output? do both these pieces of hardware I'm getting require me to buy speakers to actually hear them together? like I said, I'm completely idiotic when it comes to this, i apologize in advance. basically, if someone could just tell me everything I'll need to have fun playing the two together, that would be amazing, and I would be forever grateful. will I need another piece of hardware to be able to play the two together? also, down the road, will I be able to record with these two pieces of hardware?
