can I use a toneport KB37 as a midi controller WITHOUT a computer in the setup?

Recommended Posts

hello,

 

I'm pretty new to MIDI, but since I recently bought a KORG Volca Keys unit, I was wondering if I could use my Toneport KB37 as the MIDI controller for this device without first going through a computer?

 

I'm asking because in all the forums and manuals it always mentions going through a computer, and of course the kb37 does not have the MIDI DIN connector.

 

if I get a USB-MIDI converter cable (or SPDIF-MIDI??), can I just plug the kb37 into the Volca and have it work?

what kind of cable do I need, in case it needs a special cable?

 

and, you know: just all the other silly noob questions about (this) midi setup that you can think of... ;)

 

thanks,

Eric.

 

PS: this is a video of the KORG Volca Keys with a midi keyboard setup, I'm looking for something similar, but with the KB37
