Beefjerky, I don't know if you're still following this thread. And Steve, I don't follow you 100%, so here is another explaination on how to record Audio data from a rack synth instead of dealing with sequencer data:
On any device that you create in the rack, a Mix channel will also be created. This "Mix" channel will carry the audio output, but will only sound audio when the attached device has recieved sequencer data, or you play a note on a controller. Simple enough, right?
If you expand the mix channel panel, you will see a button on the Meter Window that says "Rec Source." Toggle that button so that it is on, and then create a new Audio Track. On the new Audio Track, use the Audio Input dropdown list, and select either Mono or Stereo depending on the device you are trying to record, and then at the bottom of the list below your physical inputs to your computer, you should see inputs for the corresponding Mix Channel of the device you would like to record. Select it.
The new Audio Channel will now record hard audio signal from the device instead of sequencer data. You can also use this for resampling tricks
Here is the page that shows you how to do it:
