Somehow I have found that nothing beats recording the keyboard track and the vocal simultaneously. I record the vocal as normal audio and the keyboard I record as MIDI.

Maybe this should just be tolerated or obscured by clever audio processing like the guitar "zits" that happen when guitar player shift chord positions.
