Hi all, Sorry if im not using very specific terminolgy, just entering production recently. I have a Question regarding an Aux/RCA output to a usb input on my computer.

I want to know if these types of cables (rca to usb adapter) can act as a midi data transfer for each individual key or stroke from an older electric keyboard, or if it simply captures the whole wave file from the keyboard.

Would be great to use what i have instead of buying a new one, yet if its needed thats cool.

Hope thats clear. Smile Thanks Heaps Very Happy

RCA is most normally used for audio and in the past had been used to carry signals like composite video from old 8 bit computers. Check the keyboard's manual, if it calls out the RCA as an audio out, then that's what it is and cannot be converted to MIDI out with an adapter. MIDI from a keyboard is normally found on a 5 pin DIN type connector, but newer keyboards may have a built in USB MIDI adapter which causes a MIDI device to appear in the computer to which the keyboard is connected.
