    GB recognises the Midi which is good.

    That you are not hearing anything is unsurprising.

    Midi is simply a set of instructions that tell a device which notes to play, when and for how long. It needs a device to create those notes. That device can be either a virtual instrument loaded into a track in GB, or it can be your Roland.

    For you to hear the Roland's audio, you need to be able to hook up its line outputs to your Mac. The usual way this is done is through an audio interface. If you don't have an interface, then your only option is to connect it somehow to the Mac's input.
