So I own a Casio CDP-130 keyboard. It outputs midi through usb. However, it doesn't have a pitch bend or mod wheel. I'm not really interested in installing my own and I've heard you can just buy a cheap midi controller and use its wheels to control the other keyboard (Casio). So since I couldn't find any standalone usb mod wheels, I've been thinking about buying a midi controller. Does anyone know if this method works? If it does, would I just plug the two keyboards into my laptop? Or would I have to buy a midi merger and somehow combine them into one input. Also, once I get both keyboards connected to my laptop, how would I go about programming the mod wheel? I don't have any software preference but I can't run FL Studio on my mac. So can you recommend a certain software that would allow me to use the mod wheel on the midi controller to affect the notes on the Casio keyboard? Sorry for my lack of Midi experience, I normally play classical piano.
