    Keyboard stand recommendations

    Thanks for all of these tips! Uh oh, my apologies...didn't do enough research. Oo, these look fun. And I see where $$$ comes in. Fair enough. (Suppose I could consider springing for either an ipad OR a 2-tier, depending...) Nice and simple. That's a new one for me! :)

    Keyboard stand recommendations

    Looking for suggestions for a stand. Considerations/questions: Can hold a DGX-205 (specs here) at sitting and standing heights Not looking to spend a boatload Lightweight/portable would be great in case I find my way into a group again (though in near term it's likely to stay put in the house)...

    GarageBand question

    I'm not quite sure why this worked, but I did eventually manage to see and download these. As far as I can tell it worked because of quitting both GB and the app store and restarting the computer.

    GarageBand question

    I'm a newbie playing around in GarageBand '11 (6.0.5) on a Mac. When I follow the prompts to install instrument sounds like trumpets or additional guitars via software update, the AppStore doesn't really do anything. GarageBand tells me that additional content is downloading but never resolves...

    Some help with the basics!

    Hi there! Hope you've been having fun playing. I've been getting myself set up in GarageBand (an old version, 6.0.5) and am having a bit of trouble downloading more software instrument sounds. Did you end up finding free sounds you liked? Thank you!

    DGX-205 to Mac?

    Yes, just needed the driver - it worked fine for me on OS Sierra (even though that doesn't seem to be what it's intended for). Thanks again!

    DGX-205 to Mac?

    Thanks again for your help, all! Got it working by downloading the driver (interestingly it seems to do fine on OS Sierra, thought I'd give it a whirl before updating). Now time to play!

    DGX-205 to Mac?

    Thank you! I'm not certain if the cord's a 1 2 or 3, though I figured out I can see the keyboard show up under About this Mac -> System Report -> USB even if it's not showing up in GarageBand or anything else yet. Otherwise, sounds like it's time for a computer update & that driver.

    DGX-205 to Mac?

    On the downside, the keyboard isn't showing up. Does anyone happen to know what drivers might work?

    DGX-205 to Mac?

    Newbie here - can I download a driver like this https://usa.yamaha.com/products/musical_instruments/pianos/portable_grand/dgx-230/downloads.html to use the Yamaha DGX-205 with a Mac? And what sort of cable will I need? Thank you!
