UNISYN 2.02 (March 2003)

Opcode Galaxy 2.5.2 (Mar 1998)

refill packer for reason 2.5:
it would occur to some that one could choose a particular "camp" to go with, using the hardware created by a certain company might be a good idea as you are able to assume that this configuration must have been rigourously tested by the company... here are a few of the "chosen paths" that combine the host DAW application, with their own MIDI hardware + MIDI management software:

**) Ableton Live + Reason via ReWire
can be used with any midi interface or librarian.. with no special integration

The Emagic Path
**) Emagic Logic + Sound Diver v3.05 Midi Librarian + AMT8/MT4 Midi interface?

The MOTU Path
**) MOTU Digital Performer + Unisyn v2.02 Midi Librarian + MOTU MTP Interface?

The Opcode Path
**) Opcode StudioVisionPro + Galaxy v2.5.2 Midi Librarian + Opcode MIDI Interface?

The Steinberg Path
**) Steinberg Cubase + ??? (no midi librarian made by steinberg)
