On the K2500/K2000 list, C K Haun has posted very positive comments=20
concerning the high compatibility with the Mac of at least two different USB=20

That's old-style... Firewire style is DV files streaming out the firewire
port into a DV camera/deck (a VCR if you will)... which does the work of
decompressing the stream to betacam quality video, likewise it does a D/A
conversion of the audio 16bit, 48k stereo... and this connection goes both
ways. Datarate =3D 3.6 MB/sec (always)

I personally still use RS422 for MIDI but...

Apple maintains a page on the subject:

http://www.apple.com/publishing/music/midi/

According to them all of these products are either shipping now or have bee=
n
announced. I believe Opcode, Midiman and Yamaha have been shipping Mac USB
MIDI for some time now.

Subject: Record all midi output

Hello,

(excuse my english)

I work on a project with Max and children. Childrens make some musical
composition with objects (all complex process is hide). Now, I want to
record all midi output (notes, volume, pitch bend, program change, etc...)
Is it possible to make that with OMS ? is it possible to send all midi
output to a sequencer like Vision ?

I hope my question is clear.
Thank you

I tried the jumper trick on an out-of-warranty G3/233 and it's
been working quite well. The CPU temperature never goes above 80
degrees F, and weirdly enough, running a CPU-intensive MSP patch
seems to *lower* the temperature!

You can also upgrade the hard disk that comes in a G3 for
not too much money. There's an IBM 14 Gig IDE drive that
I found for $249...and it's a 7200 rpm drive, vs the 5400 rpm
Quantum Fireball that comes with the machine (who names these
things? the last thing I want my drive to do is explode in a
burst of flames). If you get a SCSI CD-ROM drive, you can leave
both drives connected, but in any case, I now realize (after
doing two of these drive upgrades) that you can just temporarily
disconnect the CD-ROM drive, plug-in the old hard drive and
copy its contents to the new hard drive. I know, that probably
seems obvious to all of you, but I'm a software guy.
