>Can anyone recommend good on-line sources to study up on OSX MIDI/AUDIO?
http://www.audiosynth.com also has sources for a simple Cocoa audio
app that makes a sine wave.
Also check out SimpleSynth http://pete.yandell.com/software/ which is
open source & uses CoreAudio & CoreMIDI.

I would email MOTU because they have released some OS X drivers
already (for example, my MOTU MIDI interface has OS X drivers) & they
probably at least have a beta of a 2408 driver that they could give
you, given that you're developing an OS X MIDI/audio app.

It's already time to! A few major audio apps already run natively
(Spark, Peak, Live, & others) & other ones are currently being
completely (like Logic). And despite whatever you saw at those other
web pages, there are many devices with OS X drivers. M-Audio has OS
X drivers for everything, & a few other companies that I'm forgetting
