nuno1959 posted a topic in General ForumHi guys i'm afraid this might not be the best place to post this, i don't even know how to title this right but hope i'll succeed to explain myself in the text below : i have an iMac 27'' which, among other things, i use to record stuff in GarageBand & as i become a bit better at it, will go into Logic X… then i have a Zoom B3 bass effects unit which also works as a USB interface to input my bass/guitar/other into my recording software & it couldn't be any easier to operate + it comes w/ this very basic yet extremely intuitive & very useful effects/patch editor recently i bought a TC Electronic Nova System 'cause i fell in love with it's Choruses, Reverbs, Delays, etc….sonically it's definitely in another league when compared to the Zoom B3 ! HOWEVER…..it NEVER even occurred to me it couldn't be connected via USB to my iMac as the Zoom + it's a bit of an handful to import/export presets or edit them via the iMac & as far as i could determine, one needs a MIDI to USB interface & you need a program someone made ( NOT TC.. ) as mentioned here :Nova "Editor" (Page 1) to do any of the above + update the Nova's firmware, etc…. now, what i would like was to get something which would work BOTH as a MIDI to USB interface between the TC Elec. Nova & my iMac AND would act as a regular audio/USB interface to allow me to record can anyone PLEASE shed some light on what would be a NICE MIDI to USB & audio to USB interface ? i know NOTHING about MIDI, am dreading dealing with it but can't help feel that if it's the only way to access my Nova's well….what can i do ? i just want a gizmo i can plug my Nova into it's MIDI, then plug into my iMac via USB to import/export, edit/tweak & reorder my presets & when all that is done, use as a simple audio to USB interface to record my stuff PLEASE write your answers as if addressing an idiot because, that's pretty much how it is …LOL…i'm at a TOTAL LOSS HERE & any help/suggestions WILL BE most appreciated thank you very much for your time & patience Nuno
