I have a Yamaha NP12 keybord I recently purchased that has a USB out, a 1/4" out (line), and a headphone jack out.
I am trying to connect this to a Korg NS5R. The Korg has the following connections;
PC to Host
Midi - Thru / Out / In
1/4" Output - R / L (mono)
Stereo Input - L (white) / R (red)
The keyboard I used to have had direct Midi connecting cables. I ran the keyboard to the Korg and the Korg was hooked up to a stereo to produce sound, which I then recorded from a mic. I love the ability to have access to the sounds the Korg can produce (cello, steel drums, gun shot, etc...) and use them in my recordings. I tried to connect the Yamaha to the Korg through the USB port but there was no signal. I have not been able to find (easily - in store) a 1/4" jack to midi cable.
Any ideas on if this would work or should I try something else???
