I have a Roland Super JV module that is connected to a Nektar LX 88 midi controller for live use. How would I connect another USB midi keyboard to this setup for playing bass lines separate from the LX 88? Can I go "thru" the module once the LX 88 is going "in" the module? Also, is there an adapter to change the USB out into a midi 5 pin? Thanks for any help.

A "Thru" output typically is a copy of the MIDI input, but does not merge data from anywhere else. The Impact LX 88+ certainly does not do such merging.

If the other keyboard has such a merge function, then it can be used. (But I don't know of any keyboard that has this.)

USB makes a strict distinction between devices and hosts; a keyboard can be connected only to a host. There is the Kenton MIDI USB host, but it's expensive.

The easiest way to solve your problem would be a MIDI merge device.
