MIDIMAN/M-Audio has announced the release of Mac OS X drivers for its USB Keystation series. The products are MIDI controller keyboards that utilize MIDIMAN’s USB MIDISport interface, which became ready for Mac OS X earlier this quarter.
MIDIMAN president Tim Ryan said that his company is the first digital audio hardware maker to take advantage of Mac OS X. “With our latest offerings for Mac OS X, we’re poised to play an even larger role in bringing music solutions to Mac users,” said Ryan.
The MIDIMAN USB Keystation Controller line includes the Keystation 61, Keystation 49, and the new Oxygen 8, a 25-key portable keyboard with pitch and mod wheels, a programmable data slider and eight rotary knobs.
MIDIMAN/M-Audio recently announced Mac OS X support for its Delta audio card products — the company said that the products provide “unprecedented” 1ms low latency. “We feel that the low latency audio engine of Mac OS X can change computer-based music production as we know it today,” said Ryan.
