Get connected in three easy steps! The YC’s USB TO HOST port connects MIDI and audio from the YC to your computer or iOS device down a single USB cable. The advantage is, audio and MIDI travel to and from your YC to your computer or mobile device. This allows a multitude of recording and performance possibilities with a single cable. For example:
- Record and playback MIDI
- Record YC digitally to your DAW
- Play and monitor computer/iOS audio through the YC’s audio outputs
