Ever wonder why Macs are popular with musicians?
This video might be one reason.
The Open Door: Macintosh, Midi, and Music is a vintage Apple promo video (1988). The 26 year-old video shows that, early on, Apple was putting serious resources into courting musicians to the Mac platform. The video also shows how ubiquitous MIDI had become, in the six years since its introduction.
Watch out for appearances from Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Laurie Anderson, Tom Coster, Carlos Santana……and some serious 80’s hair.
