Hi Giorgio,
Its quite simple to connect the MIDI cable to the sound blaster card. I hope youre card has a MIDI port, which is the Joystick port. If you dont have the MIDI port then im afraid youll have to get a sound card with a MIDI port(The one which is used for Joystick, for the Games). After getting the card, connect the IN PIN of your MIDI cable to the keyboard's OUT PIN and the OUT PIN of the MIDI cable to the IN PIN of the keyboard and connect the other end of the MIDI cable to the sound card's MIDI port.Once you do that properly , next you have to install a MIDI driver. After that youll be able to select MIDI as one of the options. If you have a software like Cakewalk you can go to the MIDI out options where after the successfull installation of the MIDI driver you will be able to select MIDI from the list and then on you ll be able to use the tonebank of the keyboard to play the MIDI files from Cakewalk.Buzz me if you have any problems. You can reach me at . Chill out. Ba bye.

: Can you describe the step to connect the keyboards at the sound blaster on your PC?
: I have the midi cable but I don't know how the software works.

: Thank you
