Guides on emulating older applications

SoundDiver is a MIDI manager for synthesizers to easily manage patches and change synth parameters.

From Emagic, the 3.0 release is modeled after the UI for Logic Audio 4.x. It introduces an "Autolink" feature to automatically load patches as needed to your connected synths when you load a Logic 4 song.

It pairs best with synthesizers of the 80s and 90s, of which it has many preset modules for.

A public beta for a Mac OS X version was released in 2003, which manifested as SoundDiver 3.1 beta 2. This was quietly forgotten before it became a full product.

5th DL Changelog Notes: Added Full Version of SoundDiver 3 with Software CD authorizer 10/28/14 - which as it turns out contained nVIR infected files. This has since been replaced with a cleaned copy; 2015/04/16
MD5 checksum & filename: 95a8844a4acf1aaeeb46b945980ad0ab *emagic-sounddiver-3-img.sit

See also: Logic Audio 1.0, Logic Audio Platinum 4.0.4, Logic Audio Platinum 4.7.0, Logic Audio Platinum 5.0, Logic Express 8, Logic Studio (Logic Pro 8)

Architecture: PPC

Requires a Power Mac, MIDI interface and OMS 2.3.8.

Only the OEM versions are compatible with 68k Macs. Version 3.0 was PPC exclusive.

Version 3.1 beta 2 requires Mac OS X 10.2.6 through 10.6.8. This beta version requires an XSKey USB dongle from Logic 5.x or Logic Pro 6 through 7.2 to run.

It wasn't hard to find. John Korchok's website has it with several Yammy patch editors at .

He seems to like it as a patch librarian tool. I wonder if any of the dongle emulators could be made to work with SoundDiver 3.1 beta 2 on Mac OS X.

There was also a highly unstable Mac OS X (PPC only) beta version released by Apple that had fewer features than the Mac OS 9 release.

Worth uploading sometime, if it can be found.

SoundDiver 3.0 Alt Authorizer in Emagic_SoundDiver_3.sit is infected with nVIR

If you happen to have DL'd and installed from the file "Emagic_SoundDiver_3.sit" which was available here from 2014/10/28 until 2015/04/16

Run an anti-vir such as Disinfectant or Virex over your system in case of infection.

This file has since been replaced with the cleaned copy: "emagic-sounddiver-3-img.sit", 2015/04/16

The first large file contains a software hard drive authorizer for SoundDiver 3 and instructions on how to use it. I also deleted some .img files that I could not get to open or mount.

Have any of the changes you have made to the uploads altered the basic content, or have you just changed the wrapper only (i.e. sit vs zip)?

Click the "Edit this page" link at the top and get them from there.

You have to do this for all new uploads.

This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it Sad

Thanks for this!

I've added the updater to 3.0.4 (the version installed by the CD is 2.0.6).
