could be a retarded question, but if theres an answer it will save me a few quid. i have an akai mpk25 keyboard and a saffire 6 interface. obviously i want to connect the keyboard to the interface via midi. the question is, is there a way of "bypasing" the usb function on the keyboard, but still allowing it to transmit the power. the short of it is i dont have a 6v adapter and if i can save buying one i will. if its a retarded question and a simple no, just say so! thanks in advance

Depends.
If u use mac, u can deactivate the AkaiMpk25 midi interface drivers from the midi interface control panel of the osx.
In that case u can use the midi input of the sound card for the selected midi tracks into ur sequencer.
Anyway, doesn't really need to be switched off the midi interface...
