I use my Yamaha PSR-500 and some software I designed to control my MacWaveMaker. Here is my setup as it appears in PatchBay. 

MacWaveMaker includes drivers for Midi Manager, OMS and FreeMidi. You need Midishare to use my software controller. I wrote this software controller, so that I could use a minimal hardware controller with my synth. This software controller is a work in progress, and is FREEware, so use it at your own risk. Any suggestions are appreciated. If you use MidiShare, you also either need OpenShare, or you can set it up in PatchBay like this. Beware that the OMS and Midi Manager MacWaveMaker drivers may not be compatible, if you try to run them at the same time.

Set up MidiShareConnect like this.
