My focusrite Saffire Pro 14 arrived earlier and i haven't had any luck connecting it up to my Mac/Logic Pro 9 and my Electric Piano (which has Midi)
the equipment im using is
Yamaha Clavinova 170
Focusrite Saffire Pro 14
Superlux HD 681B open back headphones
I've connected the audio interface to the mac via firewire, headphones connected into audio interface, midi 5-pin cable from audio interface to midi keyboard, but i can't figure out how to get the piano playing into Logic, also which way round does the midi cable go if i want to play into the keyboard and record into logic?
I don't have Logic, but it should have something in the preferences menu that will allow you to select a MIDI controller, if your keyboard/interface isn't in the drop down menu, then you'll need to reboot. Firewire doesn't work the same as USB, and any hardware using it needs to be connected and switched on when you start up your computer.
Hmmm it's not working My piano (Midi Out) is connected to Audio Interface (Midi In) which is connected via firewire to my mac if that helps?
On preferences i've selected Input and Output device as Saffire, so i don't whats going wrong
Under /Applications/Utilities, there should be a "midi setup" or somesuch utility, which IIRC, you must run before you can use MIDI devices on a Mac. Been a while since I've used a Mac, though, so I could be wrong.
