Default Sean, help me

Sean, here is your brazilian Duc mate
I have a big Midi bug that bores me a lot.I have a midi studiosetup with my current PTrig, which is:
PT MIx Plus + DSP FArm/OS 9.2/5.1.3/2 adat brudges/MTP AV USB. MAC G4 800 QS 512MB RAM.

midi setup:
port 1 xp80 sends/receives all channels
port 2 jv 880
port 3 A4000
port 4 MDC1
port 5 D4
port 6 02R V2

Soemtimes I have to turn on/off midi thru several times so as to have things doing fine. All the connections are ok, no midi cabling errors. Sometimes freezes and I have to restart.

My MTP AV USB is connected directly to the G4 800QS USB free port.

Yes, at preferences, I already selected XP80 to always play.

There are situations that I need to play, listen and record to the strings on my Xp+JV+A4000.
So, there are situations that the xp stops playing and vici-versa. Then, I have to go to the output parameter and change it to MIDI TIME PIECE so all modules keep playing.

I have had to do the ridiculous thing of putting a midi thru at my JV880 so that when I select JV880 as the out target, the XP plays ( as is selected in preferences) summed with the JV880 and of course, the midi thrued A4000 -lol

People say it might be something involving the hardware of the MTP.
Any light? Thanks in advance

Default Anyone using Cubase and ProTools on OSX

I've been using both protools and Cubase for years and each are exceptional at what they do. Im still heavily involved with MIDI on some projects and at the moment am running Cubase on a PC sync'd up.

Im trying to figure out if its possible to have something like Cubase SE on the same machine as ProTools? which is fairly cheap but from what I can see will handle everything MIDI wise without any problems.

I guess I could then either sync them up or just export the MIDI into protools? I dont know if sync-ing Cubase to Protools on the same machine is even possible?

Anyways... help or advice is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
