1 Electronic drums to Mac
Hi all,

I am trying to bring drums tracks into a computer and need a little help/advice. I have the Yamaha DTXpressII drumset, a Mac running OSX10.2 with a 1.25GHz processor and 512MB RAM, and a great desire to have them talk to each other.

The DTXpressII has "MIDI out" and "TO HOST" jacks in the back. The only cables I can find convert from the "TO HOST" format into a serial interface. Macs haven't had serial in forever, so I need something that converts to USB or FireWire...but I can't find this anywhere. Or maybe I need some peripherial device that I don't know about. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need a midi interface for your Mac.
