Viewing topic "Software on Mac that will recognize my native MIDI sounds"

I recently picked up an Axiom 25 and am a newbie to MIDI.  The axiom comes with 128 different midi sounds (piano, organ, strings, etc) and I am currently using GarageBand to mess around, but am wondering what program would I need to get on the Mac in order to hear the native sounds from the Axiom 25 (m-audio)??

The Axiom has no native sounds. It generates MIDI data only, no audio.

I assume you are referring to some General MIDI software that came with it. That is software creating audio on your computer.

In GarageBand:

-- open a new song and create a software instrument track if needed
-- select the Edit tab for that track
-- under Sound Generator, select the instrument picker (top)
-- you will see a list of Garage Band Modules (Piano, Organ, etc.) and Audio Unit Modules.

>>>>> If your M-Audio software CAN be used in Garage Band, you should see it listed under Audio Unit it. Under Sound Generator, select the sound picker (bottom) to select the 128 sounds.

>>>>> If your M-Audio software can NOT be used in Garage Band, you will NOT see it listed under Audio Unit modules
