Windows Compatible usb midi keyboards + devices
« on: September 02, 2014, 07:49:09 PM »

These posts exist to provide guidance + information on SPECIFiC MODELS which provide SUPPORT FOR MAC OS 9 to those who wish to use an old powermac g4 for music purposes! If its not linked or pictured here, even if its very similiar!, theres a good chance that there are complications with compatibility, but these are the ones we RECCOMMEND for use with mac os 9 to those without experience! If you have experience or know of any other models that you can confirm compatibility with, from personal experience, feel free to post here + add to our information!! keep in mind any keyboard with midi can be connected via a midi interface to become a midi keyboard but these natively supported usb devices may provide extended functionality

(it seems the edirol PCR Mseries was a revise of the original PCR series from 2007 and miraculously they developed os9 drivers.. probably the last ever midi controllers to feature drivers for mac os 9 from a proper manufacturer and not custom driver hacks)

(the pcr-m series differs from the pcr-80 only in slight ways, it is a minor update providing a little bit more functionality in that u can more utilize the midi port routing in more versatile ways and the keyboard itself can act as a midi interface to an additional keyboard)

evolution uc33-e
a notable great controller for use with ableton live in os9 as it features its controls mapped out similar to the session view with 1 fader + 3 rotaries per vertical "track" but of course you are free to assign whichever control to whichever element within ableton
