For starters, WaveLab isn't really meant for direct audio recording, it's for mastering.

However, you can do it, you need to make sure the proper input is selected in the audio preferences, then select the record options.

Have you checked the amazingly wonderful manual that came with the program?

the noise is probably because you are recording on a crappy sound device...

kristal audio engine is a good freeware audio recording program.

Yep, if your trying to record the Korg with a stock sound card why on earth would you be using a $1000 mastering program? I guess money would be well invested in a good audio interface for starter's to match the high end audio editing program you have.

But ya, the manual has a huge section meant to be used for the Quick start set up to do what you want.

It is also available in the online help section if it is a full install of the program.

you know i've had wavelab 4 for about 5 or 6 years and i've never recorded with it , but i belive you can only record 2 channels with version 4 with the new one i belive you can record unlimited tracks that's for the full all out wavelab 6, now wavelab studio and wavelab essential are different and priced that way (from 99.00- just under 500 bucks -not a grand noise:P) .
sorry got side tracked. you should be able to go to tools, or options in the menu and select you input output device , once you do that you shouldn't have many problems, except the pops and clicks that you'll get from using a sock sound card , unfortunatly. but you can pick up a midi interface for cheap .

well when i record directly into audacity there is NO leakage at all. its a pure sound, however, if im on msn i hear other noises on my pc record even though my microkorg sounds perfect. any idea how to get rid of unwanted sounds?
