You can still get MacLux Pro online at their site... and I've been using it on my MacBook Pro 17 for almost a year now... They are starting the development of a new program call LXFree... Though it is beta right now, it has good possibilities. Like Chris said... Vectorworks is just about top dog in the industry for us Mac folks...
That is why god invented Parallels and VMWare. So you can run OLEs for Windoze and DOS based consoles. In fact, if done correctly with those pieces of software you can, theoretically, turn your computer into a console.

There isn't any software that I know of that directly runs lighting and sound cues from the same program. This does not mean that you can't have a unified control system though. There is software like QLab, Macs Cue, and Ex Cues for running sound cues. QLab is probably the most full featured of the three, capable of running sound and media cues as well as sending MIDI commands.
MIDI, or Musical Instrument Digital Interface is a control protocol that has been adopted by the theatre world for what we call MIDI Show Control or MSC. MIDI was originally designed to allow musical instruments to talk to a computer for the purposes of communicating what an instrument is doing. MIDI does not contain any audio signal at all. MIDI can be used with any modern computer system. You can get MIDI PCI card or USB MIDI devices. The number of audio in/out ports on a computer has no bearing on MIDI.And what about midi isn't that stuff usually processed through a computer and if so how does the stuff work on a mac.. USB? Cause like iMac only has one sound input and one out put same goes for the mac books/pro so whats the best option there... USB again? (well unless you spend like $10K on a nice mac pro.) come on people talk. help us out here. ideas?? ideas??
