Hey yall, just to preface this, I already know you have to get a USB host for MIDI controllers to hook up keyboards to the OP-1. This is a slightly different problem…
So I recently got the Casiotone CT-S300 keyboard piano (CT-S300 | Casio Music Gear) to practice music theory, and wanted to hook it up to the OP-1 to get more octaves. However, it turns out that the CT-S300 doesn’t use a real MIDI port, it instead uses a Micro USB cable (similar to the charging cables for Android phones), which (I believe) rules out using the MIDI USB hosts like the Kenton mk3, which only have 1 USB port.
Is there any conceivable way to connect the OP-1 with the CT-S300 that doesn’t involve using a DAW as the middleman (I really don’t want to hook up an entire laptop between the OP-1 and CT-S300, it’s just too inconvenient for my purposes)
And followup question. Suppose there’s no way to connect them. Anyone have experience with keyboard pianos for beginners that are relatively cheap and support MIDI to connect with the OP-1?
