Hello, my name is Rusty. What is the model number of your midi to usb device? Which OS version are you running?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

The Midi Cable does not have a model number, it just has 2 cords for the input and output for the keyboard and then a cord for the Mac.

I dont know what OS version is but my mac is year 2009.

Thank you

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thanks for your patience,
