So to answer simply, yes. You can do a couple of things, going back to your question 'how to I get I MIDI signal when I press a key on my keyboard using a modem MIDI interface', whichever one you use.
Just so happens, this weekend, after a move, my Atari studio is gaining momentum, so I have been plugging most things together and testing stuff out. It's too nice weather this UK holiday weekend to solely do that, so I have been popping out and reluctantly have been gardening. I use that term loosely, but hey it's nice and sunny.
Back to my point, I have an Export and another MIDI modem interface which I got with Breakthru V2 Plus way back when. As I am patching audio and MIDI this weekend, I decided to plug in my MIDI modem interface instead of Export. A couple of things you can do:
1. Exactly as you say, if you want to use the Modem MIDI out, you can use it with any MIDI in, Atari, MIDEX, whatever. That way you will get you MIDI in event when you press a key for the synth you have plugged into your MIDI modem interface. Out of MIDI modem to MIDI in synth, and MIDI out of synth to MIDI in of MIDEX or whatever.
2. If you have a couple of synths, one with at least a keyboard, your main synth can be plugged into your Atari, a second synth can be plugged into your MIDI modem interface, Out to In of synth of course. If you select Xport 1 in Cubase, then go to your main synth and press a key, your second synth will play, and the MIDI in event is recognised because of the key event being pressed on your main synth. What you can't do with this method, is press a key on your second synth and record a MIDI in event. This is good however if your second synth is a rack synth.
So a couple of options for you.
