Hello, I have Yamaha P105B, and I want to use the MIDI, but the problem is, it doesn't has MIDI i/o input and output, instead of that it has "MIDI over USB only" or "USB TO HOST" , but I couldn't find the cable anywhere!!, so please help me.

What is your objective? To connect the P105 to another instrument via MIDI?

If so, this will not be possible without an adaptor, such as this:

I want to connect it to the pc so I can make MIDI file, and get a better sound .

Do I need adaptor as well to do that, or a direct cable ?

Ah, in that case you'll just need a standard USB A to USB B cable - you can probably find one in the $1 store. They're typically used for connecting printers.
