Cubase is pretty good a minimizing Midi pressures on the CPU. (Way better than Garage Band.) It's not free, but it is Windows and Mac compatible. I've used it on both and there aren't very many differences in how it works. You can install it on any machine, but it will only run with the license Dongle in a USB port on the computer used.

LMMS. Pattern-based composition (i.e., drum machine) plus audio recording. It's a simple FL-Studio/Garage Band clone and it's free. Even though the name means "Linux MultiMedia Studio" there are 32- and 62-bit Windows versions.
