Just plug it into your Mac and use the Midi Utility to configure the connections - then you're good to go.
I recently upgraded my wife's music computer and OS to a AMD Phenom II Quad w/8 Gigs and Vista Ultimate 64bit. My wife is a pianist, bandleader, and professional composer/lyricist using Sibelius. I am a Sound Designer, so this is a critical piece of equipment. I purchased the E-MU Xmidi, because Vista doesn't support game ports like Win2000/XP.Anyway download the new Vista driver from the Emu website. Installation was mindlessly plug-'n-play as the E-MU driver installed. After a reboot, Sibelius recognized our MIDI workstation instantaneously, and it was off to the races. Highly affordable solution to your Vista 64 USB MIDI cable needs. Since it is being used in a studio, it will not be abused, but beware that it might be rather fragile for field use. Hope this is useful!
Just plug it in your PC and your controller and you're set! The driver that comes doesn't support Vista but make sure to run in "Compatible with XP SP2" if Vista doesn't recognize it by itself already. I haven't had any problem with this cable so far. Good buy for musicians who just want to connect their keyboard/desk and nothing more.
This cable is simply amazing. It hooks up very easily and is installed simply by hooking it up and entering an ID# from the box. The speed is amazing, even when I'm using it on a 2-year old laptop running MIDI programs from 2002, hah. I also like the green light signals.If you're looking for a MIDI-USB cable, look no further. This one is great for a great price.
Works wonderfully for me. Took 2 minutes to install at most. I'm running Windows XP Pro on Reason and Cakewalk Sonar through a Nord Electro 2, and this interface runs very smoothly. Cable is a good length too if you have a big desk/workspace.
Plugged it in and it works. Have it hooked up to my TD-6V and Sonar 7 had no problem recognizing it. Extremely cheap way to get a working midi in. Running ASIO with the ASIO4ALL drivers at only 10MS latency though USB with no problems - much better then I thought.
This is seriously the best MIDI cable I used! I got it working in less than five minutes. Although it said it had a problem installing since my computer is a Windows Vista. But its no problem. It still works great with my Guitar Pro 5. It automatically responds and making tabs has never been easier. I would strike a chord or note and automatically, it will write the tabs for me. How great is that. Get it today!
I use a Delta66 for my recording and sound card. I also have an old Audigy 2 Plat that I used for MIDI input/output but I let a friend borrow my cables including the big MIDI to little MIDI converter. Well those are impossible to find, other than the Internet. Well I had a project a few days ago and I needed a regular MIDI interface. I picked the E-MU 1X1 and I got it working in like 3 minutes. Also I have lower latency on MIDI than I had with the Audigy2.I was kinda scared when I saw Creative's name on the back(Creative owns E-MU now) but once I opened it up and got it working, all my worries went away.
Very easy to set up and use. My only issue is not applicable to most people in that as a blind computer user, I found the installation did not allow me to interact with JAWS, my computer screen reader. Once I obtained sighted help to install, I had no other issues.
I plugged it in. It worked. I plugged the cables into my VOX ToneLab SE. I uploaded patches without a hitch the first time. This is my first midi experience and I was able to have all my immediate needs completed in in less then 20 min. The product worked perfect. I use Windows Vista 64Bit, no need to install the software, Vista picked up the hardware and set it up automatically. 10 in my book.
