hmmm, I use cubase but I dont know anything about synths or midi controllers. I have a fast track pro tho. It's easy to set up. Just go into devices, device setup (all the way at the bottom) then select fast track pro.

I know the fast track has a midi in/out, but like I said I dont have a midi controller. Have you tried just googling it?

I have a similar-ish setup, but I have 2 synths and a controller instead of the rackmount. I have my EMU Xboard connected to the comp via USB, and a midi cable going from the midi-out to the midi-in on my korg R3,

and then the Korg R3 Midi-thru is connected to my Akai Miniak midi-in.

Then the Akai's Midi-out goes back to the midi-in on my audio interface. (using an Echo audiofire 4)

I can control everything from my xboard, though if I want to send a sysx bank from my computer to my Akai, I do have to set my Xboard to "midi-thru mode" so it will transmit properly.

The connections in your setup shouldn't be too much different from that. I'm thinking if your M1 is the old keyboard variety, you'll want to have it's midi-out going to the midi-in on your roland. Then the roland's midi-thru will connect to your fast-track pro's midi-in. That way your keyboard will be able to control both the roland, and any instruments you have running in your DAW.

That -should- work I think, so you can control the rackmount from the korg as well as any VST you're running. You'll just need to make sure the midi-in for your fasttrack pro is enabled in your DAW.

Sorry, DAW is "Digital Audio Workstation" I.E. what you use to record and mix the tracks of audio on your computer. Like FL Studio, Cubase, Cakewalk Sonar, Reaper, etc. etc. etc.

So in your case, Cubase is your DAW. :)
