Question about Apple iMac G5 MA064LL/A Desktop
I'm having trouble getting my Yamaha piano to connect to my imac.
I bought a USB-Midi cable (Mistar Midilink) to connect the two. It didn't seem to be working so a friend suggested installing this as cable didn't come with any software/driver/instructions http://www.global.yamaha.com/download/usb_midi/
I'm trying to use Garage Band and am still unable to record from the piano onto the mac.
When i go into system preferences, the mac recognises there is a yamaha there, but a pop up says it's not connected.
Any help would be really appreciated!
Using the Mistar MIDILINK to record live from a Yamaha PSR 280 I have a latency problem. Also, my PC (Windows Vista Home Premium) does not always recognise the Tahorng device

Try this: for midi the in jack goes into the out and vice versa. Weird ****!:-0

I dont use garage band but You could try just plugging a regular plug jack from aux out to your computer with a smaller jack adapter into your mic input. When you go to record a track it should pick it up-the equalizer should show movement when striking keys. Remember most music software requires you to select the option to play and hear the sound simultaneously.

You want to go into your AUDIO/MIDI set up in OS X. Selet the unit. YOu have a MAC so most itmes dont needs drivers, its one of the many great things that separate that operating systems from say windows. Also your yamaha may be CLASS COMPLIANT, which means plug and play no matter what computer you are using.
What you should do is make sure the keyboard is set to send on the same channel as garageband is set to receive.
Keep me posted.
