Is it possible to connect a midi keyboard to a PC, WITHOUT using a midi to usb cable.. Thus instead using a midi to audio jack cable. And then be able to record midi, for example on a DAW? I tried some possibilities but couldn't figure it out. And when I try to google all I get is midi to usb cables. I also have an amplifier if that could perhaps assist with something ? anyone ?
The reason I ask is because I have this old Roland xp-80 I want to connect to my PC. I have a lot of cables hence I thought if I could solve it with what I had it'd save me a buck
