Soundcard Help

  1. I am just about to order this soundcard:

    and I would like to connect a keyboard (music) to it. But I cant find a lead for this to work.

    I've never connecting keyboard to soundcard before so sorry if a really nooby question.

    The Midi leads I have found are 15pin rather than 24 which I believe the soundcard is,

    Any ideas on how to do this / what lead I will need ?! :p

    many thanks,

    did you used any amplifier to amplify the sound to that keyboard before?

    The socket you mention is actually a 26 pin connector for the creative X-FI I/O Console.

    For keyboard input the X-FI Platinum is a great choice for 6 pin midi connectivity.
    I built a system with one of these for a guitarist a while back and he swears by it now. Had a great software package too.

    The extra console fits into a spare optical bay at the front for ease of cable connectivity and removal.
