Yamaha YPT-410 for Garageband

by German Blanco
(New York)

I just bought a Yamaha YPT-410 keyboard and I'm trying to connect it to my IMAC to using under Garageband. Do I need to download any USB driver? The CD-ROM that I got with the keyboard is only for Windows, not IMAC. Please help

I'm confused...
by: Anonymous

I got my Yamaha YPT 410 last year for Christmas, but I don't remember a cable coming in the box to connect it to a computer. I want to use the USB functionality for it, but I can't seem to find a cable that I can just buy either. Does anybody know what cable I'm looking for and where I can buy it? Or know a solution. I looked at Midi to USB but it doesn't seem to be the same thing...

Yamaha YPT 410 and Garageband
by: Firemedic

I found the fix. Once you download and install the drivers, it won't seem like anything happened, but it did. Go to your keyboard and click the CATEGORY buttons until you find PC mode. I had to turn mine to PC 2. Now I have sound in garageband and I can also record or play along.

I was just about to pull out the user manual, You know "Guys" never read the manual, if you don't have too. LOL

Hope my info helps
