hey whats up guys!

the primary focus of this site will be using DAW Software + Hardware
and the compilation of reference material vital to the maintenance + setup of
these systems that are most likely deemed "legacy" + "unsupported" by
the digital audio marketplace + manufacturers.

this includes legacy operating systems / hardware platforms such as:
--- Quote ---Mac os 7 (May 1991) (7.5.5, 7.6.1) >> powerpc macs from mid 90s
Mac os 8 (July 1997) (8.6) >> b+W g3/sawtooth
Mac os 9 (October 1999) (9.2.2) >> quicksilver/mdd

Windows 3.1 (April 1992) * >> 486
Windows 95 (August 1995) * >> pentium
Windows 98 (June 1998) * >> pentium II

Windows XP (October 2001) >> pentium 4 / Core Quad
Windows Vista (January 2007) >> Intel Core Quad
Windows 7 (Aug 2009) >> Intel Core Quad / i5/i7

Thanks for visiting.

Very cool site...nothing quite like it anywhere.

A few questions-

Are old apps allowed to be shared here or requested? Such as the Radium or Oxygen or similar releases?

Can other DAWs be added to the list? Some of the best DAWs are not on the list such as-

Cakewalk Project5
Synapse Audio Orion
Audio Simulation Dreamstation II

Finally, What about Trackers? Nothing more vintage but still with us like Trackers...

Thanx, Project5er

Hi, just wanted to say thanks very much for setting this place up. I only wish I'd found it a few weeks back as some of the info would've saved me a fair bit of tinkering time. I had a huge collection of very old PC bits & bobs gathering dust and it was time I either chucked them out or utilised them somehow, so I ended up building some nostalgia machines: a P200 running DOS, a P233 running Win95, an AMD500 running Win98 and a later Celeron running WinXP. I won't bother with music on the DOS one, but the others are going to be retro-DAWs so your software list is an absolute godsend.
I'll contribute anything I can but it looks like you've done a pretty extensive job already  :)

im not familiar with these... if i see that there are a number of posts being made about it i can always make a section for it
the sections of the site are there as a guideline for me, to make it easier for me to figure things out + to keep things organized at the same time - this site will probably always be a bit of a mess, but i think it serves a great purpose

re  adding files:
i have been posting old hard to find versions of programs that run on obsolete versions of windows
i welcome any forum user to post the same, the files are usually very small, and there is little concern by
companies because these are no longer part of any revenue generation for any companies
the term is "abandonware" - this is more about the history at this point + allowing people to quench a thirst for
knowing "what came before" the modern versions as this info is very hard to find (trust me all the things ive posted here
took me ages to find!!)

hey GMP! no problem! yes it took considerable mental effort to track down all the info + there literally was nowhere else on the net that u could see this information all in one place.. or displayed in any coherent way that was usefull.. so i took it upon myself to fill the void!
