Yes, myself and other posters in this thread provided the same advice.

Are you using those applications? If not, why worry?

So does this mean you're actually going to try running the macOS version of Pianoteq (no capital 'Q' by the way...) on your Mac?

No audio interface, I believe the Pianoteq output device was set to Windows Audio. I was able to install ASIO4All and tested it in Pianoteq through Parallels, however there did not appear to be a performance advantage.

Please look at the video title: "Pianoteq running under CrossOver on M1 MacBook Air" - i.e. this is not running the macOS version natively.

No, however I expect that this should perform pretty well, based on my experience running other Intel apps via Rosetta2.

Why not? I have not encountered any problems using the macOS version of MS Office.
If you absolutely must run the Windows version of MS Office or any other tools, I would recommend trying Parallels.

Kind regards,

Anytime we get a non-lawyer who uses Apple's Word, it causes a translation nightmare. Really, nobody at any law office I've ever worked at uses Apple, in 30+ years.

Yeah, and I'll probably actually buy the "7" upgrade for $40 from PianoteQ (I use the cap Q because otherwise I type "c".... as in "tech..."

I didn't see anybody name the name - CORE audio, or say the magic app "MIDI set up. I may have missed it.... Apple people apparently assume Windows people understand "Apple Speak." We don't. It's like stepping into an empty elevator shaft.

I don't know why Apple buries the thing (MIDI Set Up). Maybe for the same reason they have no "off" button? Actually, there IS one, it's the fingerprint verifier button. A brief instruction book would be helpful! I really have to Google EVERYTHING with this gizmo! (at least for the moment).

The OTHER reason to buy it > Windows is the battery. My Windows battery is toast and baked in.

Now, to see if my MP11 is savable... I've been letting it sit properly on the floor for a month. Maybe the keys won't stick anymore?

Oh? I wouldn't be too sure about that. While I don't think Macs are the majority, they're certainly not rare in the industry. You might be surprised to hear that Chromebooks are used now, too. Different tools for different jobs.

See Gombessa's post, sandwiched between two of your own, here. I also provided a direct link to the MIDI setup guide on Apple's website.

Seems a bit like alto and tenor sax? Oh, I have to transpose up/down. Nobody told me about that! (Could be a bad analogy.)

There is Microsoft Word for macOS. It’s even M1-native. That’s what you should use.

And there’s Apple Pages which is a word processor that can also work with Word files but there are sometimes inconsistencies between the two.

Once again, use the Microsoft Word for macOS, not the Windows version thorough a translation layer.

The only Windows software I can't find a macOS replacement for is DVD Decrypter, I wonder if that would work via Parallels or Crossover?

On another note: Skyscrapersax, you might want to consider trying and fixing your problem through customer service before writing a misguided and misleading post with an ALL CAPS title on one of the world's most prominent piano forums.

ALL CAPS is good for titles. Customer service is usually good for nothing, although I will give props to Samsung, who were great regarding my T5. Apple? Forget it!

I sense more "Apple Snobbishness" in you snarky comments, and I resent it. I'm a WINDOWS (ouch, there's those nasty "ALL CAPS" again...) person; never used a Mac before, and it's very challenging. Apple versus Windows is sort of like Trump or abortion, apparently...

There is nothing "misleading" or "misguided" about my posts. I'm just a (justifiably) frustrated consumer, that's all.

Have a nice day, and hit the piano. I play saxophone (48 years) keys (on / off, 52 years) ad now guitar.

I'll look into that, but why would that make a difference? No latency issues with documents!

I've not seen one in years, but we've had documents come in in some sort of "Apple" format that are a translation nightmare. Good to know there is a "Word" for Apple, but I've transitioned to the free (and better + no subscription required) Libre Office Writer. It probably has a Mac version too, so I'll check it out, but I can't have any translation issues. My legal stuff is high level, people's lives are on the line, and a lot of it is law-changing appellate work.

Ha Ha... I've been doing just that since 1973. I sight transpose somewhat better on the Bb than the Eb horns, though....

I think it should have a prominent icon that does not require "searching."

So, is there any hope for my MP11? Or is it toast?

Skyscrapersax - I sense a lot of frustration in your posts (I know, it must be some kind of hidden EQ genius on my part). I think when you're flustered that something isn't working, you may want to step back, take a deep breath, and consider your tone and reactions. A lot of folks are trying to help you here, and they're giving you good advice, which you're prematurely brushing aside because you think you already know what the problem is (despite stipulating that you're not a Mac or a tech guy). I can't even imagine what it takes to get Kawai James to openly mock someone (even Pete14 barely gets a second glance).

You know, when I first tried MIDI on Mac, I also just assumed it would automatically start working, like plugging in a printer, keyboard or other class compliant device. I was also surprised that you had to "self-discover" the Audio MIDI Setup app, and manually set the thing up (took some Google searching). At the very least, you would think Audio Midi Setup would pop up whenever you installed a recognized MIDI device. But that's the way it is, and as many have mentioned, easy enough to find or figure out via Google, or have it explained patiently here, so long as you're willing to listen.

This is a sweeping and unfair dismissal of Apple Customer Service.

The geeks at the various Apple stores are some of the most qualified technicians you can ever find. They are highly likely to recognize a problem even before you have the chance to fully explain it to them. Their level of care with giving you quotes, regular updates and delicate handling of your equipment is top-notch. Even their telephone support staff are well qualified and equipped to diagnose problems and solve most issues over phone and will direct you to the store giving you exactly what to say to the in-store geeks.

I really don't know why I am writing all this, but with all due respect to you as a forum member - I have to say that your comments are unfair.


A man must love a thing very much if he practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practice it without any hope of doing it well. Such a man must love the toils of the work more than any other man can love the rewards of it.
