Hi, I have a Yamaha MU15 Tone Generator with an in-built keyboard (absolutely tiny!). It also has MIDI In + Out and says "General MIDI" and something about "XG". I really want to use it to control the keyboard on Synthedit. I just cannot for the life of me figure out how to do it, or more importantly, if it can be done at all. I tried using MIDI IN controller but that did not work. Any help you may have will be greatly appreciated.

The 'Keyboard" module does not respond to incoming MIDI.
The 'Keyboard2' does. Just like other MIDI automation, send MIDI to your 'Patch Automator' - this will animate the Keyboard2 module.
