I'm a professional level musician and composer, work with DP and a variety of plug-ins, high end mics and other recording tools. Any other folks out there who would like to share information, music, etc?

I wouldn't say I'm where you are, but that's my goal. I'm in the process of getting some equipment soon. Glad to see another music lover join the club Smile

Q,

What would be an inexpensive software package for midi sequencing for the Mac?

I'm not ready to spend a lot of money on newbie learning tools.

Thanks.

Q,

When I click to start the slideshow on http://homepage.mac.com/nightcrier/PhotoAlbum12.html , I get

We're sorry
but we can't find the HomePage you've requested. It's possible that:
· The address was entered incorrectly. Check your spelling and try again.
· The .Mac member of this name has either created a page and removed it or has never published a HomePage.
· There is no .Mac member of this name. If you'd like this member name for yourself, sign up for a .Mac account right now and have your own HomePage in minutes.

James:
Have you looked at Garage Band's midi capability? It's not as robust as more expensive software but it can get you going.

Jim - You've probably already tried Apple's GarageBand support, but just in case, look here:

http://support.apple.com/manuals/#garageband

A few free videos here;
http://movielibrary.lynda.com/html/modPage.asp?ID=106

More from quick web search:

http://www.applesource.com.au/software/soa/Learn-to-roc...819,339289932,00.htm

Looks to me like one would need to purchase or locate a book to really get anywhere as a beginner. Try your public library for starters.

MAN! That is a great setup you've got, Marq! (Do we have a smiley face for envy?) I'm looking into getting the Melodyne and a workstation to learn/start writing on. I'd love to have something like the Open Labs' NeKo but with a Mac engine instead. A good mic and pre would be next, of course. I'll be there hopefully soonSmile

Melodyne is very cool but a bear to learn - I've had it since it came out (2 versions, Uno and Cre8) and I just did a project where the whole actually worked like it was supposed to. Had to buy a DVD tutorial to get my head around the right way for the apps to talk to it. I'm never satisfied with gear - always buying, selling, trading, lusting...
but it keeps me young.
