The USB connector should connect directly to your computer and can then be used to transfer MIDI control data to and from the keyboard.

If you want to record the audio, then you'll need a breakout cable that connects to the stereo (headphone) output of the keyboard via a single stereo TRS jack plug, and splits that out into two separate mono jack plugs which plug into two channels of your audio interface. Something like this (many other makes and suppliers are available):

I thank you so much. I had read the manual and it contained nothing about this nor could I find any info on the internet. I'll find one of those cables. Thank you again.

MIDI connections are described on page 33 and the audio connections on page 36.
