System 7 (May 1991) / Apple System Error Messages
« Last post by chrisNova777 on December 14, 2018, 01:11:58 PM »
Common Macintosh system errors: a listing of common causes, possible solutions, and some explanations of what they mean.

Quote
Type 1 error (Bus Error)
One of the most common indications of a memory-related error.
It means that you tried to access an non-existent/inaccessible memory address.
Common causes and solutions:
Init/Extension or Control Panel conflict.
insufficient memory for the operation being attempted,
you could try allotting more memory to the application.
https://jeffpar.github.io/kbarchive/kb/160/Q160164/ 11-APR-1999

Quote
Type 2 error (Address Error)
Very similar to a Type 1 error. Some piece of information was written to the wrong place in memory. Attempting to access data larger than a byte on an odd address (68000 processor) or an instruction at an odd address.
Common causes and solutions: Init/Extension or Control Panel conflict. insufficient memory for the operation being attempted, you could try allotting more memory to the application. The instruction being requested may not be supported on the CPU. i.e. an 030 request on an 68000 processor

Quote
Type 10 error (line 1111 trap error)
This is an attempt to execute an instruction that does not exist in the CPU’s repertoire (Unimplemented instruction error). Lack of support for the machine on which it is being run (for example, a 68020 instruction execution attempt on a 68000).
Type -36 error (I/O Errors (bummers)
This file is having difficulty while either reading from the drive or writing to the drive. The file may have been improperly written data to the drive or the hard drive or disk may be damaged. This is almost always indicative of a media error (hard error on the disk). Sometimes (rarely) it is transient.
Solutions: Try copying the file to another drive. Use a disk recovery software, such as Disk First Aid to examine the disk. You can try rebooting with all extensions off. Once in a while this will allow you to read the data. The file in question should be restored from a backup that was stored on a differnt disk. Regular backups can reduce the time to recover from this error.

Quote
Type -39 error (Logical End-of-file reached during read operation)
The Macintosh was expecting a marker to show it where the end of the file is on the disk. That marker is either missing or is in the wrong place. A crash is the most common cause, however a disk error or corrupt file can also cause this.
Solutions: Recovering the file frequently fixes the problem. If it does not, make a clone of a backup, open the clone and try to import from the file that is giving the -39 error message.
In other applications, using an Import or Insert command from inside a new document frequently works around the problem. You also might move/copy the file to another volume.

Quote
Type -43 error (File not found, Folder not found)
The item that the program was looking for is not in the location that it was supposed to be. This is a common error with the Claris XTND system. Often this error is in reference to a translator that cannot be found.
Solutions: Try trashing the XTND translator list in the Preferences folder in the System Folder. and restarting the application. Verify that the Claris XTND System document and the Translators folder are in the Claris folder.

samplers - 2000s / Roland Varios 2003
« Last post by MV-GTOW on December 14, 2018, 04:15:56 AM »
The Roland Varios was released in 2003 and with it's variable operating system functioned as 3 seperate units, depending on which OS was installed.

The choices are V-producer, Varios 8 synth or a TB303 emulation.

It does sound good and if you want the Variphrase technology, then these can be picked up for $100 if you're patient enough to search for one. It is possible to get a D50 and vocoder card for these units, but they are normally very expensive. So it's better to buy a V-Synth XT.

The Roland V-Synth & Varios also have the Variphrase technology. The Varios needs a computer running V-producer to work. But it can't sample, which is a bit annoying, but it can load it's samples via USB from the computer.

Here is an old review from Gearslutz's Don Solaris.

http://www.donsolaris.com/?p=764

The encoders are the weak point on these samplers and if you're not afraid of using a soldering iron, they can be replaced for approx $30.

Great sounding sampler, check out the mp3's in the above link. Most are made just using a simple saw wave.

These are great machines, a sampler on steriods with VGA output if you are patient they can be found for under $300.

Roger the Midi Maniac has done some recent videos that are worth checking out if one is interested in this machine.

It has great effects, including a vocoder & a VA Bass synth built in.

Chris, the AMG sample CD originally had Norman on the front cover, it was a still taken from the set of the Rockafeller Skank Video in America. Norman had them change it as he never appears on a record/cd cover.

Digital Recorders / Re: YAMAHA AW4416 24bit recordings trapped forever?
« Last post by MV-GTOW on December 14, 2018, 03:42:37 AM »
If anyone else is interested in this multitrack here is a link to the original brochure http://whitehouse2002.co.uk/AW4416_catalogue.pdf

I picked one up including a brandnew flightcase for 200 euros. It can also be used as a midi controller for certain DAW's.

Here are a few videos of tracks made with the AW4416 that I found on youtube.

These are from DJ Specht from South Tirol in Austria
