I am currently using a Creative X Fi card which has problems with recording with MME drivers and, therefore, I use the ASIO drivers which give good results. To record, arm a highlighted track as Mono or Stereo, select solo for the Midi Track you wish to record and select RECORD Icon. Stop after one bar to check that recording is taking place and that the depth of the recording is satisfactory. Do check the settings for Record in the Creative Control Consul - too high a level of record can result in distortion.
