Korg Pa300 has No MIDI port, means is not possible connect directly to another keyboard, but if you using computer and DAW software, then is possible to route MIDI channels.
Korg PA300 support in/out MIDI only via USB.

Hello, I hope my reply reaches you! I am working on a similar issue on my Havian 30, which, I surmise, is very much like the PA 300. I am trying to connect one of the MIDI out ports (DEVICE or Host?) to a USB host interrace which converts MIDI signal to its 5 pin DIN MIDI out, then connect the DIN MIDI to a KORG rack synth (05R/W). I have successfully tested all the connections using a Williams elec piano and a Midi i2Control-37 keyb controller, and the MIDI signals trigger the rack synth. I am still unable to get the Havian 30 to SEND MIDI out. Is there something I am not doing correctly? The manuals for the Havian and the PA 300 seem to indicate that this is possible.

Thank you, hope you can shed some light on this problem. Jerry.

I don't know what type of USB/MIDI converter you use, but I can give you few tips.
Pa300, Havian 30 and many other keyboards has 2 types of USB connections.
1. Host (USB type A), which is dedicated to connect extra storage, like Hard drives, pen drives etc...
2. Device (USB type B), dedicated to connect other devices like PC and other Class Compliant USB devices.
Class Compliant USB devices not required driver, they have build in.
If you connecting to PC, you can download and install driver and all will working fine.
Other devices (Class Compliant) most likely need to be powered by separate charger.
Anyway, the cheap USB A to MIDI Interface not gonna work, you will need something call USB MIDI HOST.
please watch this video, where is perfect explaination how all works.
below video you find some links where and what you need to buy.

I hope that's help. Wink

P.S.
I find on amazon this:
https://www.amazon.com/CAMOLA-MIDI-Host-Interface-Converter/dp/B08MZY59B7

I never tried, never need it, means I can't promise will works, but maybe worth to find out.
good luck
