Open Music System, or OMS, is a MIDI management software package originally developed by Opcode. By the end of the classic Mac era, OMS was one of the only software options available for connecting and configuring MIDI devices to a pre-OS X Macintosh. OMS will search for any connected MIDI devices via the Printer or Modem serial ports and create an editable patch diagram for your setup.

While the installer provides drivers for dozens of popular devices dating back to before the time of this software's release, the manual also provides instructions for defining additional MIDI devices.

Prior to SSW 7.5, it is possible to use Apple MIDI Manager to configure MIDI devices. However, once Apple stopped development of MIDI Manager, OMS became Apple's recommended MIDI management solution, starting from around the time of the PowerPC transition, up until the release of Mac OS X (which includes Apple's own Audio MIDI Setup).

Note: Downloads 3 and on are legacy version of OMS predating 2.3.8, from v1.1.3 through v2.3.7. They were recovered from OldSchoolDaw and have not been tested. The final download is an OMS SDK (Software Development Kit), v2.0, which is intended for use with OMS 2.2. The SDK was recovered from the Opcodeusers Yahoo Group.

Installer comes with 68k code only, but the resulting "OMS Setup" application contains both 68k + PowerPC code.
