    You need a MIDI/USB interface like this one. A mixer has to do only with when dealing with audio, not MIDI.

    the interface would be the easiest thing to do, but a cheaper way would be to buy a midi adapter and connect it to the joystick port ont he back on ur pc and then conect the keyboard out to the midi in on the midi adapter if u have an external gaer(triton) go from in on back of gear to midi out

    Ok, all i have is an onboard soundcard (C-Media Wave Device) and a yamaha psr 320 keyboard.
    I tried connecting it to the joystick port, but nothings happening.
    Then hooked up the same kboard to a soundblaster live and its all working pretty good.
    yeah, i know i should consider buying a whole lot of equipment, decent soundcard and midi controller included at least. but for the moment i have only this...
    anyays. does anybody know why this is happening? any suggestions, pls?
    tnx a lot.

    Well not to digress but thats not neccasserily true anymore when you look at digital mixers such as the O1x.

    That's true. I was just clearing it up for a newbie who obviously didn't have a grasp on these things, so bringing in too many things at once would've made the explanation confusing.

    And I'm still all analog when it comes to mixers
