MIDI Manager :
    Apple's MIDI Manager offers a high level interface to the
    Mac OS to correctly support the timing accuracy required
    by MIDI hardware and software under MultiFinder. It is
    for doing Inter-Application Communication and for
    allowing multiple applications to address the serial
    port. MIDI Manager does not come with the System - it is
    available to developers or as licensed software with MIDI
    application packages. $35 list. APDA.

AppleLink was the name of both Apple Computer's online service for its dealers, third party developers, and users, and the client software used to access it. Prior to the commercialization of the Internet, AppleLink was a popular service for Mac and Apple IIGS users. The service was offered from about 1986 to 1994 to various groups, before being superseded by their short-lived eWorld and finally today's multiple Apple websites.
