Question Suggetions for the set up of a Yamaha MOX8 and buying a Discrete 4 Synergy core ?

Greetings to all,

My name is Eduardo and I am interested in buying the Antelope's Interface Discrete 4 Synergy Core.

However, I not sure how would I connect the midi keyboard/MOX 8 to the antelope interface if I buy it.

I currently use
• MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2015) 2.2 GHz, Intel Core i7 with High Sierra

• Scarlett Focusrite 8i6 Audio interface
• Yamaha MOX8

•Pro Tools 2019
• Glyph Atom Raid SSD Drive of 2Tb for my music libraries (with Hollywood
Orchestra Diamond)
• Usb Hub J5 Create

Yamaha keyboard requiere ASIO DRIVERS, but they are not compatible with Mac. Therefore, I can't plug the MOX 8 via usb, so I currently plug the midi cables to the Scarlett 8i6.

My question and problem is: How would I connect my MoX 8 with the Discrete 4 interface, if it does not have midi inputs ?

• I'm not sure; but could this work ? If I get an adapter of midi ports to a usb
cable; and plug that directly to my Usb Hub where I have plugged the ilook
and SSD drive for Music Libraries.

If I do that; wouln't the Yamaha MOX 8 still require the ASIO DRIVER to be
installed just because I would be using an usb connection instead of MIDI ???

• I also get confused because Pro Tools's Playback Engine would be Discrete 4;
but the midi info would be going directly to the computer through the USB
If Discrete 4 is the playback engine, isn't it supposed to be that all audio and
midi inputs should go first to the Discrete 4 ???

• Thank you very much for your suggestions and solutions to this.

I want to upgrade my audio interface, and to adquiere the black friday benefits that are the Edge Solo modeling mic, the Auto Tune synergy, and the Studio FX bundle, plus the 36 FX that come with the inferface that also with 2 DSP Chips in the Discrete 4.
This is the offer: https://en.antelopeaudio.com/auto-tune-synergy-offer/

And to be able to continue to make music sequences and mockups with my Music libraries with my yamaha keyboard. Without having to buy another keyboard.

What are your thoughts and suggestions to this ?? Thanks to everyone in advance.
