Anyone using MacBook Air with PGS?

Post by Pohutukawa » Thu Jul 19, 2018 2:05 am

Greetings people. Does anyone use MacBook Air with PGS and does it work OK? Am thinking of going this route for various reasons (outlined in painful detail in another thread). (I used to use an old MacBook Pro and it was fine but wifi died and it can't be fixed due to age.) Would welcome any intel advice on this... Thanks peeps. (edit to add my keyboard is a Casio Privia PX-360M)

I've seen users use MacBook Air laptops before, and they seem to work fine. What ports does it have on it - regular USB, or is it a Thunderbolt port?

You might have to install Casio drivers on it, depending on how it goes (drivers are strange, sometimes you need them, sometimes not).

Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3. Will those work?

Is the USB 3.0 a standard USB A port?

I'm unable to find an adapter for Thunderbolt 2 to USB, but if your MacBook Air has a standard USB 3.0 A port, that should work fine with either a MIDI to USB cable or USB A-to-B cable.

Upload a picture if you would like.
