Mac using musicians may benefit from this week's subscriber-only online feature from editor-in-chief of Sound On Sound, Paul White.

White will also speak at Macworld's forthcoming Macworld on Sound music seminar on June 24, the day before Glastonbury Festival.

The feature takes a look at how to use Mac OS X 10.3 Panther to make music, the settings you should use and some of the pitfalls working musicians still face using some popular audio plug-ins on OS X.

"When I was asked to write this article, part of the brief was too see how the Panther variant of Mac OS X should be optimized for music – but such is the nature of Panther that very little optimization is actually necessary," White writes.

Macworld on Sound is being presented in association with Sound on Sound magazine and Apple audio-specialist reseller Dreamtek.

Topics covered at this event will include: using your Mac to get ahead in the music business; Are Macs better than PCs for making music? Can a piece of software like Logic really replace an entire professional recording studio?

Speakers will include White, Macworld's Mike Collins and Paul Farrer. The event costs just £69.99 and takes place at the former Dingwalls, Lock 17 in Camden.
