I'm enjoying the latest SS 2.4 on my 2010 iMac with Snow Leopard 10.6.8. OS 9.04 runs well enough. Warcraft II is playable again.
This is about MIDI (again).
Like others I'd love to be able to access MIDI data to/from connected keyboard(s) in a Classic-style sequencing environment. (I have a number of old applications that DID work in Classic.) It needn't be a "pure" emulation to make me happy....
The probs with USB ports are noted. The info about MIDI "not possible" dates from 2001, with no progress
I have OMS installed, but OMS Setup looks for a serial MIDI interface from Printer or Modem port that aren't available on new machines. (It looks as though OMS or FreeMIDI is necessary for all my sequencers to work.)
I have an Edirol UM-1 USB interface that works well in SL after setting up the Audio MIDI Setup utility.
I was wondering if there might be some way of adding "hooks" into Core Audio in the SS program itself so it can work that way? If I was a programmer, I'd try it....
