I can’t figure it out. I am sequencing stuff in reaper and FL studio instead and then recording the Kronos as audio into the DAE which is not optimal.

I read the sequencer tips but first you have to be able to make a song st all, so far I can’t.

I was thinking of a hybrid workflow where i route audio into the daw when I am tracking and then route midi to a totally different DAW literally on a different pc. This may sound weird but I did it with two MV 8800s one was for audio the other for midi. It worked but the lack of ease in editing on the MV doomed the project, I always gravitated back to the DAW.

How do I set this up.

In the past, as long as I only recorded instrumental music, I used only the Kronos sequencer (16 midi tracks and 16 audio tracks). This was always enough and satisfying for the purpose I wanted to achieve.
But the possibilities of mixing and also automation of the Kronos did not seem to me any more sufficient for the recording of the voices of a singer and their mixings with the instrumental tracks. Also, now I'm using Sequoia which is connected to the Kronos (midi and audio). And I must admit that I have never encountered any problems (neither sync nor latency, even with many tracks). The perfect combination !
But it is no less true that the sequencer of the Kronos serves me as a starting point for my recordings.

once you work or start with all the other tools, I have no idea.

I am 100% SEQ on all my songs, so I live in SEQ mode.

I can't determine if you are starting with midi tracks or using Kronos programs, etc.

If you are starting with inserting a bunch of audio, thats a different set of steps

I start with maybe something I play on the piano then I move to the kronos to track a few bars. But I find the Kronos SEQ super duper confusing and unusable so I play the kronos into my PC into the DAW as midi.

Then later I might play hat midi back, after some editing and overdubs , into kronos, and record the output of the kronos as audio, because a lot of the kronos sounds are better or as good as the sounds in my soft synths.

I can accomplish this no problem but it is cumbersome and I am really frustrated that it's so hard to use the Kronos sequencer (for me). I envy people who are comfortable with it.

that sounds [ the piano thing]. close to my begining a new Song on the SEQ.

I have a 4 or 8 chord progression on piano.
I set my tempo.
Press the red record on midi channel 1.
Press 3 buttons, countdown, eyeballs on beat 1
Bang out the chords for whatever measures.
Stop.

There has to be 20 YouTubes that illustrate this. M3, Oasys, Kronos.

That Korg SEQ has been around for +10 years.

Another theory is that it helps to be good at numbers.
