What is the best Free Midi software for Macs?
Wow! This post is exactly what I needed. Very throrough!I guess that would depend on how one defines "best," as well as what specific type of MIDI software you're looking for-- i.e., what sorts of functions you need....
Probably should mention that MakeMusic Finale NotePad (what a long name) is part of the Finale family. Finale is one of two major pro level notation packages out there. If notation is what you're looking for, if you find yourself limited by MakeMusic Finale NotePad, you can upgrade to a higher level program. For money.MakeMusic Finale NotePad is another free notation program for Mac and Windows. It's possible to create an instrument definition file for your keyboard, although if I remember correctly you can't have separate definitions for different instruments-- i.e., you can have one patch list file, which has a generic name, although I think you can fill it with patch definitions for multiple instruments if they're sorted into their own banks.
When I'm listing a DAW or other program, I usually include the company's name in front of the program's name in my initial mention, then I drop the company's name in subsequent mentions. I think MakeMusic refers to their free lite edition of Finale as simply "NotePad," but that's too ambiguous for me, since I use Microsoft Windows Notepad all the time.MakeMusic Finale NotePad (what a long name)
