    If I set my synth (Korg X3) to Global MIDI channel 1, and set Cubase to
    record a track on MIDI channel 5, How can it hear what is being played? I
    was led to believe that the sequencing software will "intercept" the sound
    coming in on channel 1 and send it to channel 5? Is that right? If so, then
    what is the purpose of setting the Global MIDI channel on the synth at all?

  2. A global channel is the default channel used in solo modes e.g. program
    mode where you play with one selected sound. A song mode usually has 16
    channels where you can select which channel the keys play.

    You can check the whole midi input with a monitoring software.
