For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
Guides on emulating older applications

Basic but powerful MIDI score editor, very easy to use, supports GM and GS standards but not GM2. Has a powerful chord palette. This is my all-time favorite MIDI app. Very hard to find.

I've added a few useful extras:


Architecture: 68k

Although this is a 68k app I've had no problems running it from 68020 to 7448 G4's, from Mac OS 7 to Mac OS 9.2.2.

I've never tried it in emulation, only on real Macs.

This aplication don't have generic icons, but its own ones. Take a look if the "type" & "creator" are ok (type:"APPL" creator:"Ide5") and the rest of the BNDL is ok (whith ResEdit or Resourcerer).
Perhaps only need a Desktop Rebuild (in Mac Os 9).

I tried to unzip it in OS 9, as well as with OS X 3.9 (since this is an OSX supports classic applications) but both gave errors regardless of the application I used to unzip. It never occured to me to try a modern OS X. Then I tried OS X 6.8 based on SwedeBear's comment and sure enough it unzipped and I could mount it. However, I am not sure that all the icons have been preserved as I don't expect to see generic application icons in a mature product.

EDIT: The alternative sit download unpacks without incident. Thanks. Still with generic icon in the main application, but maybe that is how it has always been.

The HQX archive was unencoded to a Toast image which mounted and seemed to be fine. This was done under OS X.6.8 and with StuffIt Expander v14. Beware though the image is in HFS+ format thus not readable on OSes before 8.1 I haven´t tried the functionality of the apps on the image. It appears to be collected from their original media.

I don't know what happen. I tried several combinations of diskcopy/Toast images an sit/zip compresion and all ways have the same error: "NoSuchKeyThe specified key does not exist".
May be the problem is DropStuff & DropZip v7 ?

Hi Mactron. Thanks very much for the upload. Unfortunately, the image is corrupted. Others here, with more experience than I have with uploads gone wrong, may be able to help you fix it.
