I just got a new digital paino (Alesis recital) and unfortuntately for me it doesn't have a MIDI out but instead a USB. So I have two questions please:
1. Is the way to go is to connect to the keyboard straight to the laptop? How can then Cubase identify it?
2. If the correct way is indeed to connect the piano directly to the laptop, it's a problem for me since I'm running out of USB ports already. Is there an alternative? Can I somehow connect the keyboard to my external audio card instead (RME Babyface) ? My babyface supports only MIDI in, it seems. so what can I do?
Thanks in advance!
