For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Initially based on Steve Capps' SoundEdit, Macromedia SoundEdit 16 natively renders to CD quality, 16-bit stereo audio, handling large audio files with ease.

Keeping up with the mid 90s, SoundEdit 16 effortlessly allows for editing waveforms from QuickTime soundtracks and Shockwave audio files. It is best thought of as the inspiration for Apple's Soundtrack Pro and Adobe's Soundbooth on Mac OS X.

A plug-in architecture based on Macromedia's "Xtras" API for Director allows for further expansion of the program's capabilities. The SDK for Xtras can be found on the CD-ROM version of SoundEdit 16.

This entry was taken from the MacGUI archive, and has been checked with Disinfectant. It is preinstalled (no installer included) with the serial number.

The CD-ROM version with the original installer and extras can be found as part of Director 6.5 Multimedia Studio.

Mystery solved, at least for the copy that came with Director 6.5. I don't think that solves reddrag0n's issue below, though.

The SoundEdit 16 CD that ships with Director 6.5 has SoundEdit 16 2.0.6, which crashes at launch on Mac OS 9.2.2. It wouldn't surprise me if 2.0.6 didn't work with Mac OS 8 either, since 2.0.7 was a mid-1997 update. I don't believe Macromedia would have gotten wind of Mac OS 9 by then, unless they knew of some API deprecations in advance.

This entry's executable already has the update applied, and the 2.0.7 updater can be found alongside it in soundedit16.sit.

I ended up using the SoundEdit 16 2.0.7 updater from MacGUI and adding that to the Director 6.5 entry, where it's needed.

Based on this, my own experience and reports elsewhere, it seems SoundEdit 16 does not run on Mac OS 9, but it does run well on Classic mode on OS X.

Tried scaling down to 256 MB of RAM just in case this was one of those strange problems with having too much memory, but that didn't seem to change anything.

It could still be a RAM related issue and not necessarily an OS 9 issue. I haven't heard of anybody that used SoundEdit 16 with a TiBook or some device that started at 256 MB of RAM.

Each time i load this on my G4 Mystic, i get the error type 1. I have lots of ram installed, but this won't run at all.
