    Which M-Audio's are not compatible? You CAN look at the USB connection for midi controller interfaces with say drum machines.

    Also the "new" kid in town for keyboard (midi controllers with USB connections) is "Novation" with software/hardware combo ZeRO SL MkII and Launchpad".

    my favorite youtube video ...

    EDIT: Fully powered SL MKII via the MacBook Pro USB connection.
