Re: OT: MacBookPro advice, weird square graphics appeared....

MBPs from early last year (or so) all have a manufacturing flaw in their graphics circuits.

Apple supposedly repairs it (for free) even if it's no longer under warranty, though.

Re: Juno 106 note off midi message cuts off samples

Unfortunately, the Juno-106 midi implementation is like the worst ever. Whenever you release all keys, it sends an "all notes off" message.

So, don't use it as a controller unless you absolutely have to.

Re: Anyone know a free Note Detection / Tuner Vst or AU (Mac)?

I think ST stands for semitones. But what do I know. Anyway, while it's a nice function and all, it's still pretty useless as a tuner - nowhere near enough precision.

So, I'm still looking for a free tuner plugin for OSX (au or vst).

Re: score editor!

Would be nice, but since probably 95% of the user base cannot read music anyway I don't see it happening.

Also, to be really useful You'd want a score editor to to display more than one track at a time (to do voicing etc), which would require a major overhaul of the interface.

The expectations some people seem to put on DNA is almost Obama-esquely inflated. It's a tool. From what i grasped (when it was announced) it's primarily meant to be used on single instrumental (polyphonic) tracks, not mixed-down songs.
