Currently Being ModeratedAug 27, 2010 3:21 PM (in response to NathanMMac)I you are using a "midi cable" (which is an interface), then GB does't recognize the keyboard, but the interface. Or doesn't, like it seems to be the case with you. Most midi interfaces need driver software, so that might be the culprit - what model is your "cable"?MacBook Pro 2.8 GHz, Mac OS X (10.6)

What do you mean with GB and culprit?iMac, MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

Currently Being ModeratedOct 24, 2010 12:22 AM (in response to NathanMMac)Hey, I have a Yamaha PSR-500 and would be interested in getting it to work with GarageBand...
Just wondered what functionality you've managed to achieve and what kit you needed to achieve it?
(I'd like live recording straight into garageband if poss?)
Any help would be hugely appreciated thanks

I did the same thing (IN goes to OUT and vice versa - weird hey!) but I can get a few notes or a few bars into playing something and then a rogue note shows up and is usually held until I play that note deilberately, which seems to turn it off.
What's particularly strange is that when the rogue note starts playing it is often one I have not fingered on the keyboard.
Any thoughts anyone on how to stop these rogue notes sounding themselves - please?
It's ruining my creative impetus.

I'm sorry but the Yamaha website distinctly says that the PSR500 has NO USB Connector.
It does have a midi interface in the form of IN and OUT jacks - 5-pin DIN type.
(These seem to be labeled the wrong way round. Either that, or my HOSA adaptor is labeled the wrong way round.)
The only other connectors (all on the back) are Power Adaptor, Pedal and Earphones.
NathanMac said that the Yamaha PSR500 is relative(ly) unknown, even on the Yamaha site.
However, they do offer some advice on how to connect here:
I hope this helps.
