    i take it youre just using the maschine software at the moment? (not running it as a VST in a DAW)

    why not just get a USB keyboard and either

    a) run machine as a vst plugin through another DAW and use a keyboard with that

    or

    b) i would imagine that you could use a usb keyboard with the maschine software

    (EDIT - http://www.native-instruments.com/fo...d.php?t=116670 -- pretty sure thats exactly what you need to do, and was just a quick google search away)

    I dont get why he needs a Midi to midi keyboard though? does the maschine have it's own HDD of samples and what not? I thought the maschine hardware worked with the software as one.

    Midi in/out

    I wanted a Midi cable keyboard because after i plug in my Maschine, I have 0 USB ports to spare for a USB Midi keyboard.
    So the easiest thing to do would be to connect a midi keyboard directly to the Maschine, right?

    I'm pretty sure you can only do that if it has a thru port as well as midi in/out
