Part of the problem with the appearent lack of seamless integration between apps and operating systems, the hassles we all have had with proprietary software fileformats, drivers extensions etc.

The very things Leon Rivers describes, can be traced back to the fundamental "theoretical model" for todays computers. This model was formulated in the 1930:s by Turing and von Neuman. In 70 years there has NOT been a single major theoretical breaktrough.

The result is that operating systems and other software in various degrees reflect this model and become very dependant upon the underlaying hardware.
(a.k.a I cant take my favourite daw for Mac and run it on a PC - if I should want )

There was a time say 10 - 15 years ago when it when it was a real hassle to even exchange wordfiles between PC:s and Mac:s. Programmers have been struggling for decades, trying to introduce various abstraction layers between software and the underlaying hardware, to get away from all this.

I could say a lot more on this subject but I think I'll let it be for the moment.
I do not mean to imply that there isnt lots af other factors who is contributing to the present day mess.
I do apologize, beforehand if I have slighted some computer scientists somewhere who is grappling with the present theretical model and trying to create a new computer paradigm.

As a sysadmin ( 10 years now ) for our deparment at UmeΠUniversity, I would welcome a paradigm shift.

Cheers: Max!

well...
I'm into "I use it for everything else"
since OSX and the carbonized audio apps are still too young for a secure use.
I'm planning to use OSX for audio as soon as protools 6 and MAX/MSP/JITTER/RADIAL will have a very stable verision.
I was lucky enough to buy a TiBook G4 1 GHZ in November and still can boot in OS9... it would be a disaster for me to have only Classic emulation at this time...
I love OSX, I'm pretty shure they'll make great things in such OS, not now, maybe next year...

Recording studios will likely migrate to OSX in 2 years..IMHO

Logic 6, Pro Tools 6 and Digital Performer4.
DP4/Motu at least has drivers for the various Motu interfaces.

I think Emagic has as well to Logic 6.

First sentence of last post - should end:
"is out for Mac OS X"

Sorry about that: Dixiechicken

Right now, Jaguar with the TASCAM US-428 is unusable for audio input. Someone, somewhere has messed up on the USB audio input with Jaguar, and no-one at Apple seems to want to even admit that such a problem exists. I can use Reason successfully (some people don't seem to be able to do this, though) and I can play back OK. But recording produces stutters and dirt after 2.5 minutes. This did *not* happen with 10.1.x.

Come on, Apple, you're losing credibility (and customers!).

So the US-428 is the problem!

I thought it was Cubase, but this is far more probable!

It's terrible! I always get problems when I tried to record in OS X.

Mixing works wonderfully, though.

Doxxic, that's a very old post you're referring to (last October!). Tascam posted beta Jaguar drivers for the 428 in early March and a month later the 'official' 3.2.1 driver. I''m up and running with no problems, although a few people are still experiencing audio "fizzling out" - this seems to be related to dual processor machines. Either way, I would suggest a visit to Tascam's site to get the latest OSX driver.

maybe so... but if you already have tons of $$$ wrapped up in OS9 apps... it can cost a small fortune to upgrade to OSX apps. I will be using OS 9 for at easy another year or two until I can afford new computer that will run OSX well with the new music apps too.

I got tired od trying to keep up with new gear and software as it was hard on my credit cards... now I just make do with what I have and will wait for a bit to make one big upgrade cool.gif

Ditto. I'd love to run exclusively on osX with dp4 and all those osX plugs, but that amounts to a couple thousand in software alone. Plus, most os9 audio apps are still more stable and perform better than their osX counterparts. My iBook 600 is slow enough in os9 already. I figure if I wait at least a year longer, I'll not only have saved up the moola I need to completely rebuild my virtual studio, but the software will be more mature as well.
