the above link is of great interest to those of you who like me are interested in using pro tools 5 on os9 with propellerheads reason... this software bridges the gap between pro tools + reason on os9!!!!

When Digidesign ported Pro Tools to OS X, they added built-in support for ReWire applications, making reFuse obsolete for OS X systems. However, if you are running Pro Tools on an OS 9 system, reFuse remains the only software solution for linking to ReWire applications.

to be clear there is a few diff versions of this software!

as far as i understand it .. theres pro tools 5 TDM (for the pro device line)
and then there is pro tools 5 LE (for the digi 001/002 devices)
and pro tools 5 free (works only with mac built in audio device in g3/g4 macs)

i personally have a digi 001 and i have the Pro tools LE 5.0.1 CD that says
it is "for power macintosh and windows 98 Pro Tools LE Systems'
unfortunately the serial that i have doesnt seem to work with this cd.. and im pretty sure it worked the last time i tried it.. I think there is some documented issues with installing PT 5.0.1 FREE and then trying to install the normal PT LE 5.0.1.. which is what ive done this time around, i think its made my serial not work somehow.... either that or my serial is somehow a serial for 5.1 and not 5.0.1 -- either way its not working and i might have to reinstall and start over to try to get to the bottom of this;(

ok i figured it out turns out it was the wrong serial all along...
if its a serial for Pro Tools LE 5.0.1 it will start with "DIGI0501"
if its a serial for Pro Tools LE 5.1 it will start with "DIGI0510"

You need virtual memory and appletalk turned off while you're using this software.

IIGS User, you are correct about OMS. It's sorta like CoreMIDI in OS X. OMS was the most used MIDI interface system, though there were other choices, like MidiShare, MOTU FreeMIDI, and Apple MIDI Manager.

I'm not sure whether I'm true, at least.

I remember OMS as 'Open Music System', as the driver software between the Music software and MIDI devices in classic Mac OS, latest version 2.3.8 (as given in this d/l).

I really need to get my hands on this program,
I already use Audio Studio Pro 2004 which works great for my Music
but I need to learn ProTools which is the Industry standard.
