    Unhappy Hello total newbie here

    Hi I'm a 51yr old guitarist, all this is like a new world to me. I feel like a caveman discovering fire. I lost my wife last year & so I've decided to start writing & recording my own music, I'm using a scarlette 2i2 which I've succesfully linked to my toshiba laptop. I've got it working with my guitars & my bass, but I've not got a clue how to get it to channel my Technics SX-K100 keyboard (not a midi as far as I know) into reaper 64bit. Any advice would be very much appreciated, please type slowly as I'm old lol.

    An RCA-1/4" cable should do it. I'd start with the level switch set to high and the volume at about 75%. Otherwise, whatever you did for guitar and bass should work for the keyboard.

    Hi Paul,
    Welcome to HR.

    The 2i2 accepts line level input via 1/4 so, as bsg says, the pictured cable should be what you need.

    Just set the 2i2 front input switches to 'line' and tell a Reaper track to listen on inputs 1+2.

    I typed fast, but feel free to read it at a leisurely pace.

    The pictures I saw suggest it's a mono keyboard, which would mean you can use a single cable and a mono track from input 1 on the interface.

    My mistake!
    The manual covers a few models but isn't super-clear about which model has which features.
