Question: Hi. I have a super old Yamaha PSS-26 non-midi keyboard. Is there any way I can record sound from it into reaper or audacity? I mean not recording from mic, but recording directly via connecting a wire from that keyboard to my laptop? It have a headphone jack, yes.

    Sure! Probably best to get a dedicated audio interface that you can connect it to, but if your laptop has an audio input jack that would work too.

    Thanks. Will try it. Is there any way to make this super old non-midi keyboard into midi via Arduino or something like that?

    Nope. Midi must be implemented in the first place. Or you try to reverse engineer how it works internally and see, if adding something is possible. But it's only worth the time, if you are deep into nerding stuff like that already. Maybe adding triggers to the keys are possible but tbh, you can buy a regular midi-keyboard much cheaper instead ;)
