Re: Focusrite 18i8, iMac High Sierra, Midi keyboard

I used Expand!2... However, I must have not set it correctly or something. I launched PT just now to check the setting, and there wasn't an insert at all. I added Expand!2 to Insert A and it now is...

I will try setting up an Audio Track for the guitar amp.

Re: Focusrite 18i8, iMac High Sierra, Midi keyboard

Yamaha responded to my request for help. The driver suggested did add a Preference panel to the MacOS System Prefs. However, the pick list of devices is empty. PT still does not "see" the piano, and...
