I can't seem to find the Mac driver for the Roland RD-700. There are drivers for the 700SX, 700NX, and 700GX, but not the plain old 700. On the Roland site they simply have the full system update for this unit, but no driver.

The Roland site doesn't seem to have any way to contact support. I tweeted them @Roland_US, but no response.

I'm on Mac Sierra v10.12.3

(and BTW, I tried using the driver for the other 700 (with the SX/NX/DX) and it doesn't work. That one is called RD_USBdriver109.pkg)

2018 Update.. After 3 years with no midi on my RD-700-GX and buying an external USB midi adapter ( didn't help there are power issues ). I finally got it going on my osx 10.13 SOLUTION !! use the normal direct USB cable .. However you must update the keyboards internal default settings to use a "GENERIC" midi driver I also had to set the keyboard to pass through the output via the midi port this is off by default. Can now use Synthesia again

see page 142 in the guide for full instructions on how to set this.
