          Comments about Yamaha UX16 - USB MIDI Interface:

          The Yamaha UX16 USB-MIDI Interface is being used on an old client's computer that runs Windows 2000 SP4. The attached MIDI device is a (now discontinued) Yamaha PSR-530 keyboard. This combination works great; no problems.A driver disc was not included with the product.For those who have had difficulty locating the proper driver for their system, please be aware that drivers for various versions of Apple Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows, plus manuals in PDF form, can be found at the following ---------------------------

            Comments about Yamaha UX16 - USB MIDI Interface:

            I'm new to MIDI, wanted an interface cable to use a Korg SP500 keyboard as a controller for Logic Pro X and Maverick OSX 10.9; was told I was out of luck as manufacturer's drivers were not updated for 10.9 op system. Looked over options and reviews, and Yamaha's UX16 seemed the answer. Although Yamaha's drivers CD, included with UX16, could not be read by Maverick, I went to Korg website and downloaded their drivers for Mac, anything 10.4 and above. Well, the lights came on, and it's been working like a champ ever since. I highly recommend the UX16.

              This was used to connect our Yamaha digital piano to an iMac (Mac OS X version 10.8.5) and create in Logic Pro X. It worked perfectly out of the box. Very simple.

                After reading of problems with other MIDI-USB adapters I decided to go with this standard from Yamaha. Absolutely no issues so far - easy installation, long MIDI cables, it works!

                  If your looking for a good USB to MIDI interface, this will work just fine. If you are using WINDOWS 7, just go to their site and download the Windows 7 drivers, they are working without any issues. I'm using a i7 intel processor, this is controlling a Virtual Pipe organ.

                    I have yamaha digital piano, and i used to have a cheap midi interface, and had some problems with sustain pedal, velocity, keys, etc. However, this UX16 recognizes everything on the digital piano, and so far no problem at all. Works Perfectly!

                            More expensive than the cheap Chineese products but so far it works fine with no connection problems or missed notes. Used with Yamaha keyboard and Sibelius 6 software.
