Keyboard Instrument Cables
Keyboard Instrument Cables information
A keyboard, synthesizer or digital piano normally comes ready to play. All you have to do is plug it in and you're good to go. If you need more volume, however, you'll need a cable to connect it to an amplifier, for instance. Normally, that will be a jack cable. You may need one with a stereo TRS jack connector at one end and two TS mono jacks on the other, or if your keyboard two mono outputs, you'll require two mono jack cables (for stereo) or a single cable if a mono signal is sufficient. If your keyboard, digital piano or synth has a USB B port, you may wish to connect it to a computer using a USB cable (USB B to USB A). These days, most USB connectors are compatible with MIDI too, but if your instrument has a classic 5-pin DIN MIDI connector, you'll need a MIDI cable instead, as well as a MIDI interface in order to be able to connect to your computer.
