    my roommate has a yamaha motif8, and i have garageband. i've been meaning to mess around with midi stuff, but haven't been able to get the motif to interface w/ garageband. i d/l'ed the usb midi driver from yamaha, but nothing changed.

    is there anything else i can try to get the motif to work with garageband?

    I take it you can see the Motif in the Midi setup prefs?

    If you can, what your seeing is the Midi interface built into the keyboard, you'll need to set up a dummy Motif connected to the Motif in the Midi prefs, that dummy should be the keyboard, not just the interface.

    Seems to be a common problem with some USB keyboards.

    Having said that, you won't be able to play the Motif's sounds via garageband, only the GB sounds, as GB rpovides no Midi through function.
