Minitaur Midi keyboard/Ableton connections

Post by Jsteele » Sun Sep 20, 2020 1:05 pm

Hi guys,

I finally own a Minitaur which will arrive on Tuesday this has been a long time coming!

I was wondering about connectivity, finding it hard to get my head around...

1. I want to use my old Korg R3 to actually play the minitaur, so I'm thinking this is the Midi cable between the moog and my synth will to make this happen?
2. I use ableton, so I'm assuming I will need to take the Audio out into my interface to pick up the sound of the unit...
3. My audio interface doesn't have Midi ports, can I just take the USB midi straight out of the Minitaur and into the USB on my computer and this would be enough to carry the midi information?

I have a separate midi interface but it's very existence is just confusing me right now!

Sorry if this is all basic, I just want to know if this will be enough to get me started, i.e using the external instrument to record midi changes into ableton. And also I'm a bass player so playing an actual keyboard will be a must, hence the R3 connectivity.

If anyone could help, I'd be so grateful!
