MIDI from Kemper to Garageband not being recognized...

  • Hi All,

    I am trying to connect my Kemper via MIDI to my mini Mac. I have the MIDI to USB cable. I have the MIDI in going to in and MIDI out going to out and I plug the USB into mini Mac.

    I Have the USB connection on Kemper going to USB in mini Mac. The one that is used in conjunction with Rig Manager.

    I cannot get garageband to recognize the Kemper as a input. I have tested both cables with other devices and they work fine in Garageband. I have tested my MAC with other devices connected via MIDI and they work fine.

    Is there a certain setting on the Kemper that I am missing? I have gone through OUTPUT, INPUT and SYSTEM settings on Kemper but I cannot find anything.

    Has anyone had this issue? Or can anyone point me in the right direction.

    Thank you for helping!

  • I'm not sure you can use USB to connect to Kemper. Its USB is not class-compliant MIDI device (at least it doesn't show up on mac like it was one). You'll have to connect to Kemper using good old 5-DIN connector.
