Ask a Mac Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you and refund your deposit.
Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.
Thank you for getting touch. Yes please I would greatly appreciate it if you could find someone. If I can't fix this problem I can't do any recording as my desktop computer has died.
No rush - I've waited for a long time already before even contacting you, also I'll be without internet for the next 36 hours as I'm going to look after a very elderly relative, and getting online is near impossible in her area.
Thanks for replying.
We will continue to look for a Professional to assist you.
If you decide on a refund, or wish to keep the credit for a future question, then of course we'd honour it.
Thank you for your patience,
first of all apologies for taking the best part of a week to reply. As I said to Adam one of your moderators I was going to be unnable to get proper internet access for 36 hours as I was tending to an elderly relative in an out of the way location. She has no broadband. Unfortunately due to complications I had to stay down all week and eventually admit her to hospital last night, so I'm doing a bit of catching up here.
I don't want to sound ungracious, but must confess to feeling a little "underwhelmed" - by the"expert" nature of this reply. I have been a Mac user for 20 years and of course know that a clean install would solve most problems. The reason I got in touch was because I wanted to check with "Just Answer" that I hadn't missed some 'specialist' trick before climbing that particular mountain, and trying to install nearly 200 pieces of software (OK some pruning would have been done -some voluntary, others forced, because some of the manufacturers have stopped supporting non-intel machines).
I was hoping for a magic bullet from a Mac/Music expert that would save me 3-4 days work. Bearing in mind that your area of expertise seems to be more PC, I hope you understand that I would like to reopen this question and direct it more towards the Mac community.
Thank you Rusty
I'll get on it tomorrow.... I've just got in very late from visiting my Mum in hospital.
Just before I download and install the Midi Manager you've provided the link for - I wanted to double check that this is ok with my operating system
-Leopard 10.5.8 (Non Intel). Am I looking to trash the Audio MIDI set up App (Version 2.2.2) and all 3rd party Midi drivers before installing this new one?
Apologies if I seem a little over cautious.
I think what I'm really worried about is trashing the Audio manager atthe same time as they seem to be one application.
Am I jusrt being too overcautious now?
I've done as you suggested. The file will not open as it says "Classic environment is no longer supported".... I haven't used Classic since about 2001, in fact since OSX came in.
I'm on the last Non-Intel version (I think) of OsX - 10.5.8.

No this Midi manager won't install. It suggests that it needs Classic environment, which I haven't used for over a decade.
In my original post I stated that
"Much of the migration was successful, but my Apple Audio/Midi manager (2.2.2) is not working correctly.Software that is Audio only i.e. Bias Peak, Soundtrack pro etc will launch but any software that involves a midi component will not launch or install. I have tried connecting various midi devices and the midi manger will not open. I have tried trashing all my midi drivers (Motu, emagic, roland) and reinstalling but to no avail."
So no, nothing that uses Midi will launch. Logic, Cubase, Live, all my Native Instruments standalone etc will not launch, and neither will the Midi half of the Audio/Midi manager. I'm rather dumbfounded by this.
Surely the Midi manager I downloaded was for an earlier operating environment? Have I got that wrong?
Thank you for your help.
Well I downloaded the program but it wouldn't let me install it.
I don't think I've ever had Classic on this laptop, which I bought in about 2004 (I think).
Hope this helps.
P.s. I've trashed all drivers and the Audio/Midi manager, and haven't installed or reinstalled anything yet.
Midiman Oxygen 8. Original (Bought July 2002). I think one of the first USB keyboards.
Hi - yes -downloaded and installed, and the keyboard powers up fine. But I have no programs that will launch - so there is no way of actually getting Midi in or even testing that it is coming in.
Would you like me to reintroduce the Audio/Midi manager at some point?
BTW the keyboard works.. (I use it with simple apps on my iphone) and the USB socket is fine- I use it with all kinds of external devices.
Do I not need to get the Audio/Midi Utility set-up working before downloading and installing any drivers?
Are there any hidden files that I have missed, that need to be trashed that would jeopordise what we are attempting here?
I have installed Patchbay - and downloaded a couple of drivers for the Oxygen 8 and a Korg NanoKey. Both seem to work with one of the few instruments I can open in standalone.; "Lounge Lizard". I have not yet had any luck launching my sequencers -Logic and Ableton Live.
Also I thought you might be interested to read this as it seems to pretty much describe my problem. http://jnote.org/29 The 175 grateful comments seem to suggest I am not alone in this problem.
