Basically, I am wondering whether I can connect my keyboard to my pc or not. I don't know if it is possible and I am very, very new to this community. I very recently purchased an audio interface (U-Phoria UMC22). I currently use the Mic/Line 1 port for my microphone. I was thinking that I could connect my keyboard via the Inst 2 port. My keyboard is a Casio CTK-496. This keyboard is roughly 15 years old. I searched for the manual online and I managed to find it. This page is the only one, I think, that shows the I/O on the back and explains it. I have no idea what any of this means. If I could connect my keyboard, what cables do I need? Any help is appreciated! Thank You in advance.
sure, you can totally connect the Casio to the interface.
...one side of it at least.
You need a cable that is stereo at the Casio end and dual mono 1/4" at the interface end...I can't tell if the output jack on the keyboard is 1/8" or 1/4", but it's definitely stereo.
And you'll be able to plug in one channel of the Casio to the interface. Left or Right, the choice is yours.
