permlink Music tools

Wow, not only is GarageBand officially shipping tomorrow, but so is the brand-new Mac OS X-native version of the Finale music notation program. (It's been delayed numerous times, so this is a big deal.)

I hope they get around to shipping OS X versions of the lower-end programs too; I don't need all the immense power of Finale, I just want enough to do six voice parts. :) permlink     4 comment(s)  
I already emailed Steve about this, but I was wondering if any other OSX users have USB MIDI interfaces that they like or know are good. I want to get an inexpensive one.
Looks like the M-Audio ones (Uno or Midisport 1x1) are most available on the webstores. Suggestions?

Chris: I haven't used any USB MIDI interfaces yet; the last time I played with MIDI was when I only had Macs with serial ports. :) I am curious which ones are good though. I'll post when I get around to getting one (though it won't be that soon).

Yeah, me too- anybody wanna buy a serial port MIDI interface? (cheap!) ;-)

Just a followup- GarageBand and the M-Audio Midisport Uno USB MIDI interface are working well together with my MIDI keyboards.
