Hey, I have a quick question to you, experts: I want to buy new Yamaha keyboard, with the MIDI output/input, and I don’t know if it means I can connect it with my DAW and use it as a midi controller? If no, for what purpose can I use it? Thanks in advance ;)

Hi! Most people only use USB for their MIDI keyboards nowadays. I’m guessing that the Yamaha keyboard has a USB connection as well? Otherwise you would need a MIDI to USB adapter for your DAW .

Every modern midi keyboard has an USB , you’ll connect it with DAW only by USB I think

Without USB you can use it as instrument keyboard when you have sound interface with midi (or buy simple midi usb controller for 30$), but USB keyboards have more useful features (transport controls, custom sliders and knobs).

Hi, DamianN! You can use Yamaha keyboard, with the MIDI output/input as a midi controller :) For example I have MIDI keyboard CME UF series, which connected to DAW by MIDI and it works as well as MIDI controller.

Yeah. But it’s mainly for low-cost compact models. :)

I need only 25 keys, compact size, and minimum options
