Interesting list, helps with shopping  :)

I question the inclusuion of the Midiman Portman 2x4/p (parallel), I have one and it only works on Win pre XP (as in the drivers don't work in XP) and the box uses a parallel printer port (DB25) so and Mac would need a PCI card installed, and then there are no Mac drivers. So unless I've missed something this device cannot be used with any Mac. Hopefully someone might correct me as it's a nice box sat on my shelf.

yes english mac, u would be correct.. the thing is, my friends on the forums dont like the idea of me having a windows area to put this windows devices info in so its mixed in with the powerpc info..
i would like to have a small legacy windows area eventually on the site for me to place that relevant info as i come across it in my research! to keep things sorted.. for me, information is still valuable, especially to know the difference of what works with what, and what is possible... etc as u can see already i made a hackintosh area on the site for me to deposit my relevant research in its own section away from the powerpc and its already met with complaints;) sigh
i will keep trying;)

re: the midiman portman device.. its probably best put to use under win98se or even windows 95
i am interested in exploring this platform aswell and i have been making a system for this os! i had good results on a Penium III 700mhz using some legacy apps so i will be trying more once i complete my intel core 2 duo win98se box!

MacGuy:
I have the MOTU micro express ( 4-input, 6-output MIDI interface MIDI patch bay and SMPTE-to-MIDI synchronizer for Macintosh. The micro express connects to a Macintosh serial port (modem or printer).

Have not used this MIDI interface for several years having switched to USB MIDI gear.

According to my  user's guide for Macintosh it came with one micro express Macintosh software disk.

Can't find it: it's lost according to MR MAGOO.

Any here share the micro express Macintosh software disk with me please so that I can use it with my G4 and legacy MIDI keyboards ?

Thanks guys.

i reccommend emailing motu customer support directly.
they should send u the driver.. its their fault for not posting this driver on thier site!

but wait i just looked it up on : http://www.motu.com/download/
and noticed a small link saying "older versions"  http://www.motu.com/download/download_matching_downloads.html?product_id=16

i believe what u need is on this page - the mac os 9 freemidi download should have the driver for the microexpress built into it
