I think my mail program ate this before it got out.  Apologies if this is
the second post...

MidiShare (from Grame) has a module that monitors incoming MIDI, but this
begs the question of whether MidiShare will coexist with current versionsof
OMS; the last time I fooled around with MidiShare was back around version
1.2.3?  I standardized my system on OMS in theinterests of simplicity and
could never get OMS/MidiShare/MIDI Mangler to talk to each other once I
upgraded OMS.

There's a utility from Grame called OpenShare that's supposed to provide a
way for OMS and MIDI Manager to coexist under MidiShare, but I haven't
tried upgrading.  Has anyone else tried this, and does it work (and work
with Max)?

Here is the original posting from David Z. which I dug out from my archive:

Hope that helps,

I was having horrendous crashes with MidiScope once System 7 came
out--haven't seen a good free replacement (though I'll have to check out
Jon Witte's list). By way of commeercial software, HyperMIDI provides
sophisticated filtering, and includes a HyperCard example that just
monitors the MIDI stream for you.
