I think I'll buy a Yamaha P90.
I've seen that it has a "to host" port, while P60 hasn't it.
What is the difference between connecting a PC using MIDI in/out and using the "to host" port?

Thanks, Matteo

The "to host" port connects to the computers serial port, which will need some sort of serial port MIDI driver.

If the computer has a sound card with a regular MIDI port (on the game port), you would probably prefer to use that.
