I finally figured out what my MIDI problem was with my Yamaha DD-55 drums not playing into my Mac properly. The cable. You need to have a Yamaha UX16 USB-MIDI Interface or you’re in for a world of hurt. Once I bought that cable and plugged it in, everything worked great!
So I can now play the DD-55 with GarageBand running and record every note as it clumsily stumbles out of my uncoordinated paws. I hope to have a little time this weekend to record a few riffs and see if I can post them here. Should be fun!
Oh, and I’ve sort of changed my mind about Shooter in the Abstract. I was wrong. I’m still sick of looking at it so a new version won’t be coming anytime soon. I can tell that’s true because at the first sign of trouble, I lose interest completley. I’m not ready yet.
