I own a PC, so I don't know about the midi usb on a Mac, but I had the same problem with low volume on all sound outputs.
You can fix that under the Utility/System menu by setting the Output Gain (which is at 0db default) to +12 - also make sure that the Master Volume is set at 127 (which is the default).

Hope this helps.

According to the Roland website you should install drivers for the V-piano. Most other products never require any drivers for macs running MIDI. Below is a direct link to Rolands download page for the V-Piano.

Thanks for the link; I have to see which operating system is installed. Erard may have something there; Saw the 127 limit, but not the output gain. Still, the Midi Setup should show something because "New Midi Device" pops up when connected..tnx.
