Music Software : More on Digidesign G5/10.3 Compatibility - macmusicWell, the good news is, Digidesign is starting, slowly, to certify Power Mac G5 systems -- the bad news being, the process is slow and Panther compatibility seems far behind, as clouvel has observed. Clouvel is obviously upset and with reason, but I do want to add a few points:

The 001 is incompatible with the Power Mac G5 because of physical incompatibilities with the G5's 3.3 volt-signaling restriction, which does not allow the 001's 5 volt signaling. (See the website below). But the news here is actually even worse: d24 and farm cards from Pro Tools|24 systems are incompatible, as are Pro Tools|24 MIX I/O (not to be confused with MIX Core or MIX Farm). Audiomedia III and SCSI|64 Kit cards are also incompatible, although that's not likely to cause any shed tears.

Meanwhile, Digides ...

Music Software : Alert: Panther Compatibility with BIAS Products - macmusicPlease read this important notice regarding BIAS product compatibility with OS 10.3 (Panther):

Updates for Peak, Peak LE, and Peak DV to version 4.02 for compatibility with Apple's new Mac OS 10.3 (Panther) are forthcoming.

Virtual Instrument : Finally: Storm Software Updated (OS X) - macmusicThe Arturia Forum has finally announced a major update of the Storm software for January 2004. According to users in their forums, the update has been anticipated for a long time. The upgrade from version 1.5 to 2.0 is free. Quite a good way to bury the rumor of the death of this software!

Ed: This news is a little old, but if you missed this news like some of us did, better late than never. The new version is a major update with interactive, online collaboration tools, a composition wizard with song templates by genre, new modules including analog-modeling synth Shadow, Vocoder, and Compressor, for a total of 23 instruments and effects, new synthesis and effects algorithms, redesigned screens, and ReWire device and mixer which can even sync two Storm studios, plus unlimited undo and many other enhancements. At EUR/USD 150, with optional academic discount, worth a look. Any devoted users, feel free to write us a review or tips. -Peter Kirn

Apple : Night of the Panther: Preparing for the Upgrade - macmusicGetting ready for tonight's upgrade to OS X 10.3 Panther -- or trying to decide whether to upgrade? Here are some tips for would-be upgraders:

Pros and Cons: IDC's Roger Kay complains to the San Francisco Chronicle that Apple's making users upgrade OS X too often. Worthwhile reading just to bring back warm memories of Apple talking about OS upgrades being "like getting a whole new Mac" -- haven't heard that expression in a while. Macworld's Jason Snell defends the OS in the same article. David Pogue in the New York Times has a great overview of why ...
