There are no advantages in using the sound card MIDI port. Your keyboard is probably powered by the USB port, so it's best if you keep the USB connection.
If you need the USB port for something else, you can use the MIDI port, but you'll need an AC adaptor to power your keyboard.

: I recently purchased a USB-enabled keyboard and have hooked up everything using the USB port. No problems so far.

: However one question accurs to me. As I have a MIDI IN jack on my sound card and a MIDI OUT jack on the keyboard (a) can I use a MIDI-MIDI connection (instead of the USB connections) and (b) if so, is there any advantage to doing this?
