Garage band + old Korg

Post by lapuppet » Sun Dec 21, 2014 12:58 am

I want to hook up a keyboard to my Garage band,
I have an old Korg 707 (25 yrs. old)
I get the adaptor for USB-midi but it doesn't seem to work.
Any one have any suggestions?

just a quick question, but what is the audio plugged in to?
a lot of people mistake midi control for audio recording.

Audio signals do not travel through midi cables. Only the information of which key is pressed down, how hard the key is pressed, for how long, etc. Travels through your midi cable. If you want to hear sounds, you need to connect something to the synth's audio outputs either a speaker, some headphones to the headphone jack, or audio cables going into some recording device (or your audio interface).
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

Those USB cables have confusing labels for IN and OUT. First, try swopping the MIDI cables around... Also, is the USB interface appearing as a MIDI source when you make a new keyboard track?
