How Do I Connect To My Mac PC If My Device Only Has Only Midi and No USB?

1)            You will need a USB to midi converter such as the UX16.This connects to the midi ports of your device and converts the midi to USB.

2)            A specific driver is needed so the pc can recognize the UX16.   Go here to download. http://download.yamaha.com/top/?site=usa.yamaha.com&language=en     type in your model Number and search for the midi driver that is compatible with your computer operating system.

3)            The mac will see the UX16 but not the device that is plugged into it.

4)            The cables connect seemingly in reverse. Device midi out jack  connects to ux16 cable marked “in”, device midi input jack connect  to ux16 cable marked “output”.
