  1. USB Midi Controllers

    Thank you to those who replied - I ended up getting an Oxygen 49 and I can say for sure that it does work well with gb and logic. I'm also extra happy that my Presonus Firebox works! It seems to be more of a challenge to get the Oxygen/Firebox working in windows, or perhaps the programs are less intuitive as to how to set them up. I'd prefer to just use os x anyways, so I'm happy.
  2. Have you tried Easy BCD? http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 It makes adding additional OSes to the Vista bootloader very easy. I have it booting Vista, Xp, OS X and Linux. - Joe
  3. USB Midi Controllers

    Hello all, I'm curious what people are using for USB midi controllers. I did a little bit of searching through the forum, but haven't seen much. I was thinking of getting a m-audio oxygen 49 as it has good reviews (as far as I can tell) and it is very cheap. Can anyone confirm a working oxygen 49 or similar on a osx86 machine? Also, this is a long shot, but does anyone have a Presonus faderport working? Thanks!
