: Alright, so I'm a newbie to this MIDI stuff still. I wanted to know if something were at all possible. I have two pretty old synthesizers (Emu proteus, and Korg 01/w fd). The keyboard on the KORG is pretty much shot, as well as the modulator and pitch bend controls, and it doesn't have pressure sensitive keys, but I still want to make use of the sound bank it has. I would like to hook up the two keyboards, have my proteus (which is responsive to pressure and has a working modulator) play the sounds the KORG is set too(this I have achieved), BUT I want the final sound coming out to also include the pressure sensitiveness and modulation effects of the Emu Proteus. Is this possible? If so, help would definately be appreciated.

: Cheers,

Not sure, do both have MIDI in/out/thru? I am not sure of the hookup but you should be able to connect them via MIDI cables out->in from one to the other, then out->PC gameport or MIDI in. Something like that. There's examples on the web for this type of connection but I don't have a URL off the top of my head. I am considering hooking up my Yamaha S03 along with my Korg Karma (newest addition) so I can use both but I need to get a MIDIMan 4x4 so I can run both simultaneously.
