    Hey all,

    I have an electric piano, which has a midi in/out. I want to hook it up to my PC to use with Reason. Do I hook it up to a USB port?

    Whatever I have to do, I need the right cable to do so. Which do I need?

    Any help appreciated.

    Usual cheapest way is a midi cable to Gameport (joystick) connector which is midi in/out on one end and other plugs into game port on sound card which still allows you to plug in joystick. Yamaha now do a usb to midi box of tricks with installation cd which uses usb port and has midi in/out cables on the box, cost is more expensive at around £46 whereas a midi cable is around £16.
    Hope that helps.
