: Hi,
You should be fine with OSX. You wil need to find and download OMS to enable midi.This is a free utility.
As for sequencing and recording. You should be able to buy Cakewalk metro for around $150.00 US. This will give you sequencing and recording
capabilities. Beyond that you'll need a library of midi sounds. This can be a sampler, module or software. One of the cheapest ways to get started is
the Roland VSC MP1 software. This gives you a midi player and 600 sounds.
As for Finale this is a scoring program. You don't need to spend that kind of money unless you want
to print out pro looking scores. Cakewalk should provide you with all the scoring you need.
good luck
