i'm trying to install the yamaha studio manager and the dm2000v2 editor on my macbook pro. i'm running leopard on it. for whatever reason, it returns an error saying that the dm2000 editor is incorrectly installed. i've done a fresh install of the os and am installing the latest versions of the SM and editor right from yamaha's site. i didn't have this problem on my tiger os, only now. i suspect it's related to leopard, not my actual install. can any verify this?

Give Spock a yell. I think he and RC are using Studio manager with their live rig

Yup we are Moon.

However on WinBlowz not on a MAC. Also we are driving an 01V96.

What I did find out when getting all our stuff setup is that Yamaha has the sofwtare at about 5 different unrealted places on the web. My problem was with their USB-MIDI driver. I thought I had the latest version until I went to every damn page at Yamaha that Google found that had soemthing to do with SM and the MIDI driver.

confirmed from yamaha that it's not yet leopard compatible. it'll about half work, not that half working helps anyone. so i'll just keep an eye out for that update.

Have thought of using a seperate partition/external FW drive with Tiger installed?

I was in hell, staged a mutiny and the devil kicked me out. So now I'm damned to wreck havoc on live sound again using ones and zeroes. :Twisted:

I hate that. Had to re-install my system. It's not easy to download and get their latest stuff. Bad page lay-outs, and the number of times I've forgotten to install that damn USB driver (well 3 max....!).

I use a motif es rack with the studio manager and it's great but I get high pitched noise from the mac down the USB connection. Tried wiring it through a DI Box with ground lift and didn't do much. I'll just have to use Midi.

Very good to know..thanks Pounce!

Question for you: I'm in the process of slowly integrating my MBP into my rig. What have you tried running simultaneously on the MBP w/o performance hits?

One thought I had was to use one of the remote fader layers on the DM2K to control logic pro on the MBP. The other thought was to run studio manager on a separate MIDI-over-USB channel, but I'm not sure if that's asking for trouble. Have you had a chance to run studio manager in conjunction with other apps?
