I've got some old midi files from Cakewalk Pro Audio 8 on a windows 98 machine and I want to find out the best way to record them. All of the sounds are from a Roland XP-80. I finally want to update and finish the projects- so do I record track by track of real audio from the XP-80 into Ableton or can I somehow preserve and move the original MIDI data from Cakewalk into Ableton as MIDI files and have Ableton trigger the XP-80 with all the original parameters intact? I'm running a MacPro and have Ableton and Garage Band.
Thanks for your help!
