Topic: Connecting external controller via AIO midi in, or USB ?

Dear RME forum friends,
I am newbie and don't understand, is there a benefit with connecting a midi controller keyboard to computer via AIO's own 5-pin midi-in port, or may I just as well use a normal USB port and still benefit from the same low latency?

Controller in question is Akai MPK225 that has both 5-pin midi and USB, and DAW is Ableton Live 10

(I would prefer USB, because using midi-in port I am unable to receive Live's clock signal in the controller keyboard but via USB it's receiving the signal just fine)

Best regards from Finland, harri j.

No benefit if usb works. You can also connect both usb and midi if needed for whatever reason. I have to do that with my novation circuit, since when the circuit editor is open since it blocks the usb port from reaching cubase (just an example).
