Apple : NAB: Apple Updates PowerBooks, iBooks - macmusicAt the National Association of Broadcasters conference, Apple has introduced major updates to its PowerBooks and iBooks, bringing its mobile line even closer to the performance and functionality of its desktops. The new PowerBook G4 features up to a 1.5GHz G4, with faster graphics and, perhaps the most significant jump, 4X DVD burning. The entire G4 line is cheaper, running US$1599-2799, which should help fend off canibalization by the iBook as well as bring the top-of-the-line into reach of more consumers. The iBook also gets a 4X SuperDrive option, has faster processors and a new RAM ceiling of 1.25GB, yet starts at just US$1099.

Misc : Special Inside Mac Radio with MacMusic: Musikmesse, Apple/Real - macmusicMacMusic is back on with Inside Mac Radio's Scott Shepard (pictured at right) with a special extended interview on the latest in Mac music technology. Scott and I got to chat about the drama between Apple and Real over opening up the iPod's digital rights management, specifically in terms of how it affects musicians, and we took a look back at all the new technology to come out of Musikmesse, with the coolest gear and software and what it means for Mac musicians. As usual, you can download the show to your iPod or other music player and listen wherever you want.

Music Software : Finale 2004b Released (OS 9/X); Still Lacks EPS/PostScript Export - macmusicMakeMusic has released its 2004b update to Finale 2004 for OS X. Most significantly, the release adds Mac OS 9 support. There are numerous bugfixes in the new release, including improvements to the articulation tool, edit commands, expression tool, lyrics, mass edit tool, measure tool, interapplication MIDI, MIDI pan, saving audio files and opening and saving MIDI and Finale files, playback, plug-ins and FinaleScript, printing, setup, entry, and many other tools. The release also adds a fix to a performance glitch with creating TIFF graphics, adds support for OS X patch list names, and fixes a crash with the Search and Replace function. However, there's still no support for EPS export or PostScript listings "because of limitations in OS X." That's a confusing claim, since both features are supported in Finale's competitor, Sibelius. There's also nothing to address ongoing performance complaints. Despite these factors, though, this is clearly a must-have download. MakeMusic has a PDF file with all the changes.
