as indicated on this original page posted on from 2002
because development ceased in late 1998
this page first shows the announcement of gibson acquiring opcode
from june 1998, so the purchase date was sometime between march 1998 + june 1998
here we see some users discussing the buyout in late may of 1998
heres the full buyout storry, again, this one says it all went down in MAY 1998

Mac os 8.1 was released in January 1998
this was the os that was current at the time of the buyout
mac os 8.6 wasnt released until a full year after the gibson buy out in may of 1999
but this was around the time that development was shut down and the plug was pulled on opcode

Is it also true for opcode midi interfaces ? I plan to set up a system 7 computer because it's supposedly better with scsi-1. And I'm also gathering informations (thanks to this forum) about old midi interfaces. Currently I hesitate between MOTU Timepiece AV, Emagic Unitor and Opcode Studio 5lx. The studio 5lx is my first choice because I need 9 outs and I would be short with the others. But will it work well with system 7 ?
