It's not the machine, it's the software! As a musician I don't care about how cute a Mac is, it's the darn software for it that gets me excited. So, here's a new one that has just popped up. If you're into microtonal music, you can't ignore it: Scordatura.
Here's how they put it:
"Get microtonal music out of Finale, Sibelius, Logic, etc.
Use your standard controllers to make microtonal music.
Design your own custom microtonal MIDI control surfaces."
It's made by H-Pi, makers of the Tonal Plexus microtonal keyboards. I can't talk about the product as I don't have a Mac. But it sure triggers the dilemma again! If you do have a mac, be sure to try it, it's a free beta download!
