We were playing with GarageBand tonight and the keyboard is a really
awful input device. We have a few digital pianos with Midi out and were
wondering if anyone has hooked up a Clavinova or Kurzweil to a PowerMac.

The Kurzweil takes a DIN plug. Not sure about the Clavinova I'd have to pull
it out or find the specs on the web.

If your just going into Garageband or Reason, you can pick up a USB Midi interface for around $45.

- A affordable, seamless Midi-to-USB device that works great with Macs and PCs.

i have the m-audio midi to usb. it works great.. in order to do this you will install the drivers that came with the device ( midi/usb) then open garageband you want to create a new track the key step is to make SURE you create a software instrument.
and then you should be set. if you have any other questions just ask it here or PM

I think that a cable is more in line with what I was looking for. This is just for the kids to fool around with.

The M-Audio device is great too. However, the turtlebeach interface does not require any additional drivers - just plug it in and you're ready to go.

(As a sidenote, Newegg doesn't state that the Turtle Beace device is compatible with Mac OS's.... I'm not sure why, because on the box it clearly asserts that it is. So disregard what it says on Newegg - it works flawlessly with 9.2.2+/OS X 10.1.5+).
