    I wasn't familiar with that keyboard so I just looked it up. That keyboard has a USB port so all you will do is use USB cable from the keyboard to the computer.

    Yes you can use that keyboard.

    The dgx205 sends out MIDI code through a USB cable so it is a MIDI keyboard. You can use either USB or MIDI cables to transmit MIDI data. MIDI cables are what they used before USB cables came out. Nowadays you only need MIDI cables when you are hooking up old gear that doesn't have USB.

    The important concept is that MIDI is a code and you can send it through USB or MIDI cables.
