Add MIDI device icon to Audio MIDI Setup Apps
In Audio MIDI Setup (in Applications -> Utilities), a set of Generic MIDI device icons is available to visually recognize your different MIDI controllers. It's possible to add your own Midi devices to the list by adding an image file to /Library -> Audio -> MIDI Devices -> Generic -> Images.

Next time you open Audio MIDI Setup, your new icons are going to be available to customize your setup.

If you want your icon to look nice and pretty, you should create a TIFF with a transparent background. The built-in scaling these icons are subject to can make some pretty ugly results unless you take care to make decent graphics to start with, and the panel expects the image to have an alpha channel.

I'd like to share these icons I made with an action script:

TritonRack.tiff, Korg EA1.tif, Karma.tiff, JV-1010.tiff, JStation.tiff, Emu MoPhat.tiff, Kurzweil K2500R.tiff

Download them here:

Actually, at least for MacOS 10.5.5, you can create user specific icons (which will move with the User area if you move the account to another machine) by creating a directory path at ~/Library/Audio/MIDI Devices/Your Chosen Icon Library Name/Images and placing the images in there.

Recover MIDI Audio device utility / icon to osx platform
Authored by: steve nolan on May 29, '10 04:16:40AM

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help please , I have been using an Edirol UA-4fx to access logic 8, but most recently my young son has put the midi audio set up icon in the trash ( and its gone!)

I have tried reloading my osx 10.4.11 (mini Mac) platform (both discs) but still there is no midi audio icon in the utility folder and obviously my interface unit is not working..

Any response would be a great help thanks Steve
