    So here is the M-box Mini interface that I am using with Logic Pro 9 . I am thinking about buying a Korg MicroKor because the sounds on it and vocoder but I would also want to be able to use it as a midi controller to control my software instruments in Logic. I currently use a M-Audio Axiom and I connect that to my computer via USB . How would I connect the MicroKorg to my computer ? It doesn't make sense to me . . . there is a a MIDI out and MIDI in but am I supposed to connect that to my interface ? I feel like this may be a dumb question but I've only used USB to connect MIDI controllers to computers in the past.

    The Korg uses the standard MIDI connectors on the back so you'll need to get an interface that has MIDI to USB like this...

    Most audio interfaces have MIDI connectors already on them but apparently not your M-box Mini.

    What MIDI functions will the Korg do that the M-Audio won't? Just wondering. I can see wanting the Korg for its sounds...and you still need a MIDI interface to have the M-Audio controller or computer play the Korg as a controlled device from either of them (if it doesn't have USB MIDI)...but why the desire to use it, instead of the M-Audio, which has a LOT of MIDI-controller functionality?

    Just wondering.

    mostly to conserve space. I would rather have just one keyboard in my room.

    would the two inputs on that adapter go on the MIDI in & out or in & thru ?

    Just MIDI In and Out. MIDI Thru is for daisy chaining another MIDI device.
    The MIDI Thru connector would go to the MIDI In of another keyboard or device.
