I had a Yamaha keyboard back in 1988 that had a non-standard midi output
jack to go to other midi equipment. Patched it right into an old full
length SB16 Pro I had at the time and worked fine. Seeing how Yamaha was
and is one of the more popular companies out there, I don't see why such a
thing wouldn't work or exist. I'm sure there must be some solution out
there for it, hiding. Possibly like when I went looking for a Linux CD I
had... sitting 14 inches from my face, heh. Naw, it's probly available off
epay or some music site. If you want, I'll help search for it if you give
me more info on the keyboard.
