Hello! I am curious if you can hook up a RockBand 3 Keyboard to an Audiobox, because it DOES have a MIDI port. If you could, it would make a nice keytar, seeing that it has 2 octaves of keys, a pitch bend strip, and a button. (I'm assuming that would be an octave up out-of-game, either that, or do nothing.) In-game, it uses a USB dongle, so I don't know if I need that or not. Also, it is very odd that it has one UNLABELED MIDI port. It also has what appears to be 2 AUX ports and a reconnect button. (oddly enough, mine only has one...) I have heard of this working, but I don't know if it would work or not in my situation.

This should be possible.

Connect it to your AudioBox via MIDI cable out of the controller to the MIDI in of the AudioBox.

Open Studio One > Options > External Devices and create a New Keyboard, with the MIDI Receive From set to the AudioBox MIDI input.  Set this as the Default Instrument and press OK.

Start a new song, add Presence for instance and test.
