Hi all!!!

I have 3 synths I want to connect to the 2500 via midi. The problem is that the 3rd keyboard can only be connected to the midi out (cause the 2500 only has 2 midi ins)

Is there a way I can connect the 3rd midi keyboard, so I can play keys in it and record the midi notes, and play back what's recorded in the MPC?

You want to use 3 different keyboards to input notes? Generally people only connect 1 or 2 MIDI keyboards to the MPC to input notes that are then distributed via the MIDI outputs (4 in the 2500) to all the synths around you. But if you really want to plug 3 MIDI inputs you'll have to get a MIDI merger box.
