Adding External MIDI Yamaha S08 Keyboard

Does anyone know what the Yamaha S08 keyboard is considered a “mono” or “stereo” return, in the “add external instrument” in Cubase 10? It is connected through USB into my iMac.

Outputs 2 x 1/4 TS Phone, L/Mono, R 1 x 1/4 Stereo Hedphone 1 x MIDI Out 1 x MIDI Thru 1 x USB
Inputs 1 x 1/4 TS Phone Foot Switch 1 x 1/4 TRS Phone Foot Controller 1 x MIDI In

looks like it can be either depending which outputs you use

Also if you are Only using the USB then it will only be a ‘MIDI device’, not an "external instrument’. To be an external instrument you need to connect the outputs of the keyboard to a sound card connected to your computer.

thanks mhazdra, I understand I think and figured it out. I do have it hooked up via midi and audio cables so as I can hear the yamaha keyboard (this is mono, 1 output(that has a capability of stereo for performance I imagine)). I have decided to select “mono” at this point.
