The recent survey showed that 102 folks are using a PC with GPO and 28 of you are using Macs.
I haven't heard much music on this forum produced on a Mac unless it was an oversight of mine not noticing the equipment used for production. It seems that most Logic folks are experiencing GREAT trauma and I don't want to be one of them since I have used Logic since inception. It's too bad that the NI Kompakt player doesn't get along with Logic and Macs.....so,
What part of the 28 survey folks that use Macs use DIGITAL PERFORMER as a sequencer with GPO? Is it any friendlier than any of the other programs? When I say programs I am excluding Finale and Sibelius because they are notation programs and don't have as much control over MIDI functions as dedicated sequencers. I know some are using them with GPO and it may get better, but for now I think a dedicated sequencer is probably the best way to go. I am a great user of both Finale and Sibelius, so I know their capabilities.
Anyway, I have completed a research project for a PC setup and have had great input from this list (community) for a SOUND, (no pun intended) WORKING environment for GPO.
I want to stay with a new, faster Mac so this is the reason for my last gasp at using a setup that will work with GPO. If any of you have posted music on the forum, please direct my attention to it--the Mac has such great promise for producing good music. I know, in the last 16 years, it has done that for me in the MIDI world and my CDs have fooled a lot of people even though they were produced with MIDI sound modules (Roland, of course).
Any input will be greatly appreciated. I appeal to all of you that are having success with GPO and the Mac.
Respectfully, John Cannon
