Way way back in the early days of Mac the platform established itself as one to be used for music production.  Not just for the audiophile at home, but for serious pro music production.  Macs have continued to stand out in music although PC’s have pretty much caught up.  So I thought, being into all things music on Macs myself, I’d do a short series on apps I’ve found and prefer for doing things music related.  This will NOT be an all-inclusive series, only what I’ve found that works, and in most cases is open source or free.
