PC300 into Logic Pro (Mac) problems

Hi. I have a Roland PC300 Midi keyboard controller which I want to use in Logic Pro on my mac which runs OS Leopard bought last year. I downloaded the Roland drivers for this only to find out they don’t work as the OS Leopard runs on 64 bit and the PC300 driver has to run on 32bit.

So I purchased a 'Phonic Midi Hub' midi interface and hooked that up via midi cable to the PC300 and by USB to the mac. I added the Mini hub as a midi interface in the ‘Audio/Midi setup’ under applications/utilities on the mac & on the ‘test setup’ for midi in (up arrow) when I played a note on the PC300 it did interrupt the test ‘beep’ signal so assumed this is working OK?!

Now when I try to record midi in logic on a ‘software instrument’ track it shows midi in info being received (on the transport controller section) and records vertical lines in the timeline (not horizontal lines!) but doesn't actually record the midi notes at all! Consequently when I play back no sound is heard and no midi notes show when I double click the recording I made.

I don't know what this means or what else to do! Can anyone help please? Thanks, Mark

Pc300 into logic pro on mac problems

Hi again. Actually this should read.....I have a Roland PC300 Midi keyboard controller which I want to use in Logic Pro on my mac which runs OS X Lion 10.7.5 (bought last year). I downloaded the Roland drivers for this only to find out they don’t work as the OS Lion runs on 64 bit and the PC300 driver has to run on 32bit.

So I purchased a 'Phonic Midi Hub' midi interface and hooked that up via midi cable to the PC300 and by USB to the mac. I added the Mini hub as a midi interface in the ‘Audio/Midi setup’ under applications/utilities on the mac & on the ‘test setup’ for midi in (up arrow) when I played a note on the PC300 it did interrupt the test ‘beep’ signal so assumed this is working OK?!

Now when I try to record midi in logic on a ‘software instrument’ track it shows midi in info being received (on the transport controller section) and records vertical lines in the timeline (not horizontal lines!) but doesn't actually record the midi notes at all! (See pic attached) Consequently when I play back no sound is heard and no midi notes show when I double click the recording I made.

I don't know what this means or what else to do! Can anyone help please? Thanks, Mark
