Multiple hardware synths

How can I send midi from a hardware synth that has a keyboard to one that does not.

Make sure the send channel from the keyboard is the same as the receive channel on the module?

Need more info. What are you trying to connect?

Connect both synths to Live and enable them in MIDI in/out preferences.

Create a MIDI track in Live.

Set the MIDI track input to the synth with a keyboard.

Set the track monitoring options to “in” so the synth reacts as you play.

Set the track output to the other synth and whichever MIDI channel the synth is set to.

Once MIDI is recorded on the track set the monitoring option to “auto” so the recorded MIDI gets sent to the synth.
