Unofficial Dream Cheeky Music Driver for Mac OS X


The driver translates hits of a Dream Cheeky USB Roll-up Drum Kit or Roll-up Piano to MIDI messages. It doesn't have any of the fancy learning modes like the PC software supplied with the Dream Cheeky gear, but it does let you play it in some interesting ways. Most people use it to control GarageBand or other MIDI software.

The program needs an Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

You can download version 2.2.2 for free.

If you're looking for something that works on a PC running Windows, try this Windows software by Sander Triebert. I have heard good reports about it.

I'd love it if you'd contact me to let me know how it works for you. You can also do that if you've got any bugs to report or questions to ask. If you send a link to music made using the driver, I'd enjoy hearing it!
