Hi!
I'm going to buy this synth for its good price from a private guy.
I'd like to know if is possible connect this instrument to a Pc and use it as a Midi input buying the "Midi to usb"cable.
And If i had your opinion, in general, is this a good synth for the 2015?
Someone told me that the triton76 is better and it's possible connect it USB to a PC but the price is also bigger.
Thanks guys!

The sound engine is the same for the triton classic and karma. Triton feels a bit sturdier from the standpoint of keyboard, but doesn't have the karma engine.

Karma's got no USB port, only in/out/thru MIDI (5-pin DIN) so you would require a special cable or a black box in-line interface to get to a computer with the flat rectangular end of the USB cable; to interface with a lightning input (iOS device) you need an Apple "camera adapter".

FYI. Can go midi out to midi in on a box like I use (Presonus Audiobox 22VSL). The 22VSL then goes USB to computer. That way can use as midi input and sound device for your DAW work. Sound is good; same as triton, but somewhat dated for 2015. '90s keyboard. Cool
