    Because the Midi keyboards that apple sells have only USB out, should I be able to plug my existing Midi keyboard (Alesis QS8.1) to GarageBand using a Midi>USB converter? Personally, I don't think there'll be an issue but I know there are people out there who know a whole lot more than me. I want to be sure before I blow $50 on an adapter Thanks in advance!

    It'll work without a doubt. The USB MIDI keyboard that Apple announced isn't a requirement for garage band, just an option. GB looks like one hell of a great app for the bread.
