Manhattan Producers Alliance to examine use of Mac OS systems in music

January 18, 2005

The Manhattan Producers Alliance will use their midtown Manhattan facility as an "incubator" to explore 0S9/OSX migration issues as they pertain to professional music and audio postproduction.

The "OSX project" will consist of a facility-wide multi-staged migration from OS9 to OSX, then to the G-5 platform, and eventually to a fully centralized, multi-user, SAN based environment.

The transition will be documented, with the focus being on the real-life, day-to-day production issues as the alliance's diverse community of composers employ the new systems in their daily work. The information will be made public via published technical documents, a series of interviews with participants, and various other releases in the media.
