    keyboard to Scarlett, MIDI in, Scarlett Midi out to MPC. Gets confusing if you want the MPC's output to be recorded - as you're close to a circular path. With routing in the computer software you can usually sort this out, but it's just a bit clunky. If you can use the keyboard instead of the pads, it's more elegant

    You will have to get a USB to midi adaptor, there are some reasonably priced units out there.
