Default Quicktime Synth in Pro Tools on OSX

I used to be able to see Quicktime synth as a destination in my OMS setup when using OS9, which allowed me to route midi from Pro Tools to Quicktime.

Since I upgraded to OS X I can no longer find Quicktime Synth in Pro Tools or Audio/Midi setup.

In Digital Performer I can see a destination called Apple Software Synth, but nothing like that in Pro Tools.

MY QUESTION: Is there a way to route Pro Tools midi to Quicktime or Apple software synth in OS X?

PT-HD v. 6.7 , G5 Dual 1.8 w/1.25 GB ram , OS X version 10.3.7, Quicktime Pro version 6.5.2

Default Re: Quicktime Synth in Pro Tools on OSX

The thing you need to do is grab a copy of Midipipe <http://homepage.mac.com/nicowald/SubtleSoft/>
and/or Simple Synth <http://pete.yandell.com/software/>

if you use Simplesynth

start simplesynth before you start protools.
select "SimpleSynth virtual input" in the MIDI Source popup,
start ProTools
in your desired midi track choose simplesynth as your midi output.

It is a very similar process with midipipe

thanks Pete Yandell and Nico Wald for providing 'free' software to access the DLS soundfonts
