    Midi controller for a DAW and an external
    using an M-Audio 61 MK III midi controller which has both a USB midi and a 5 pin midi output in the rear. I want to use the Controller to also send midi to a KORG PA4x arranger which receives midi and outputs AUDIO into my Audio interface. I run the USB directly into my MAC and my DAW software instruments work fine Can I send out midi from the M-AUDIO KEYSTATION 61 using the USB MIDI connection/cable and without moving things around control both the DAW and just sounds from the external KORG sounds, using a 5 PIN MIDI cable ( threw them out years ago ) out from the MAUDIO into the MIDI IN of the KORG? i.e. control the DAW and sounds from the KORG PA4x Thank you very much Glenn Losack Manhattan

    Hi Glenn - I don't see why that wouldn't work, unless the M-Audio only sends data on one port at a time. But since it would be the same MIDI data going out USB & DIN, you might not be able to do both at the same time without interference [unless the DAW & Korg would be responding to different MIDI messages?]. If your workflow is track-by-track, then I guess it should work..
