MOTU Performer / Re: Motu Performer 1.22 (1985/1986) (midi only) *DOWNLOAD*
« Last post by xenmaster0 on April 29, 2017, 12:18:03 AM »
I have both this program (MOTU Professional Performer 1.22) and MOTU Professional Composer on 800K Mac floppies (also on my Mac Plus hard drive). Alas, these programs will _not_ run on any Mac OS beyond 6.0.3 and will not run Macs with ROMs beyond the Mac SE30.  The SE30 had a 256K ROM, whereas the Quadra 650 had a 1 meg ROM. The SE30 had a 'dirty' ROM with some legacy 24-bit code in it, and that's probably why Performer 1.X runs on the SE30 but not the Quadras.
Tried running MOTU performer on System 7.X/8.X/9.X on both my working Quadra 650 and my beige G3 266 rev 2 with 750 MB RAM and System 8.1/9.2.2. The ROMs on both those machines crash MOTU Performer 1.X hard. Pro Composer sort of kind of runs on System 7.X, but won't save to anything, since Pro Composer 1.X requires MOTU Performer 1.X to save to MIDI files.
The only real way to run this program is on a Mac Plus or a Mac SE30.  Even a Powerbook 180 won't run it. Also, as mentioned, Performer was designed to work with Composer because the two interact. Composer reads Performer 1.X files and turns 'em into music notation, Composer also takes the notation you enter & generates Performer 1.X files which are then spat out as MIDI messages on an old MIDI interface hooked up to the Mac Plus/SE 30.
EZVision from the 1980s can read Performer 1.X files and put 'em out as MIDI too.
MOTU Professional Composer eventually turned into the standalone program Composer's Mosaic. Very unstable. Mosaic reads and writes MIDI files directly and turns 'em into notation/turns notation into MIDI files.
Hope that helps.

MS-DOS 6.0 (Mar 1993) / Re: Cakewalk 5.0 for DOS (Aug 1994?) *download*

Thanks for the info. I will try that with Windows 10.

When I was in Italy last week I found my vintage PC stuff.
I couldn't bring back the two desktop PCs (Pentium 1 and PIII) but got a couple of ISA sound cards and my original ISA MPU401 which is definitely supported by CW5 DOS.

Will do some testing in due course as I have an old PC with ISA slots :)

I will install it the hard way, by copying the two disk images to 5 1/4 floppies...

General / RTP = real-time transport protocol
« Last post by chrisNova777 on April 26, 2017, 02:02:24 PM »
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real-time_Transport_Protocol

Quote
The Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) is a network protocol for delivering audio and video over IP networks. RTP is used extensively in communication and entertainment systems that involve streaming media, such as telephony, video teleconference applications, television services and web-based push-to-talk features.

RTP typically runs over User Datagram Protocol (UDP). RTP is used in conjunction with the RTP Control Protocol (RTCP). While RTP carries the media streams (e.g., audio and video), RTCP is used to monitor transmission statistics and quality of service (QoS) and aids synchronization of multiple streams. RTP is one of the technical foundations of Voice over IP and in this context is often used in conjunction with a signaling protocol such as the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) which establishes connections across the network.

Sonifi

Remix, Record, Control dynamic live FX & beautiful visualizers

AND Stutter Edit™….

LIVE.

Create and explore stunning live remixes, FX and visuals with a true first-of-its-kind portable remix engine. Sonifi™ is the worlds first true audio and visual remix application and protocol. Created by electronic superstar BT, this application showcases futuristic new music and remixes of The Rose of Jericho from his forthcoming 2009 artist album.

Sonifi™ is a powerful, portable, real-time remix engine. There are an infinite number of permutations of remixes you can create, mix, save and share….live, and anywhere!!

For iPhone and iPod touch 3.0 users, a revolutionary new multi-player feature has been added. Jam Link gives 3.0 users the ability to link with a friend (via Bluetooth) and remix live….TOGETHER. The mixmaster selects control over “Beats and Bass” or “Melody and Harmony”. Once JamLinked you and your buddy can remix, select tracks and Stutter Edit™ live. This is a first for any application, on any device.

In Sonifi™, four channels of four unique tracks allow extreme flexibility and remix possibilities. The (4×4 matrix of) tracks can be mixed, muted or soloed and contain four completely unique elements and arrangements per-channel. There are four tracks of ripping beats to choose from, four tracks of fat bass lines, four tracks of glitchy synths and FX, and four tracks of cutting edge melodies.

Everything in Sonifi™ happens in-time and on-beat; so making a mix is both fun and effortless. If you are a musician or DJ the sky is the limit! Currently, three discrete real time effects are controllable using the X/Y axis of the iPhone or iPod touch screen : Lo-Fi, resonant high pass filter, and resonant low pass filter.

There are mesmerizing visual elements that respond elegantly to user touch as well as the frequency and amplitude information of your remix. You are not just remixing, you’re visualizing what you are creating.

Finally, Sonifi™ contains BT’s patented Stutter Edit™ technology and is the first application to showcase to its abilities. Instead of using a mouse, USB device, or other input peripheral (like you would with a computer), your phone becomes an instrument!! Simply shake the phone in one of six vectorial directions (left, right, forward, backward, up, or down) and at the next 1/8th note the Stutter Edit plugin will perform an incredible micro-note or fill pattern repeat, some with release crashes and hits. Basically, you shake your phone and sound like a genius.

Endless fun ensues!

Planned upgrades will include downloadable Sonifi™ media packs containing other artists songs and remixes, new visualizer elements and band & artist links.

Let the live remixing BEGIN!!

MS-DOS 6.0 (Mar 1993) / Re: Cakewalk 5.0 for DOS (Aug 1994?) *download*
« Last post by chrisNova777 on April 25, 2017, 11:43:15 AM »
yea usually in most DOS installers, if all the files get dumped into the same directory
it will install seamlessly and find the files automatically and sometimes it will even bypass the insert floppy msg
because it finds the files without even asking...

of course that does nto account for the rare times when a program has different files with the same filename which then complicates things further requiring u to actually use real floppies + real floppy drive

After unzipping the file from this site, it shows two other files, CWD5a  and CWD5b. I then copied the contents CWD5b and pasted it into CWD5a......opened it and scrolled down, double clicked on the Setup icon....it then opened
a DOS window and l kept pressing Enter until all the installation stages were completed.  All of this was done by trial and error so check it out, there might be a better way.
