Logic / Re: Notator Tutorial Video
«  by chrisNova777 on Today at 10:24:44 AM »
i just got a VHS machine explicitly for this purpose
i have a video capture card that was given to me by the owner of macos9lives site
i will be trying to use in a b+W g3 to digitize the video from the Cubase Tutorial video
the cubase video i made a post about, it covers all three platforms.. ATARI.. MAC.. And also Windows/PC

anyway if u can find the video for sale somewhere perhaps i can purchase a vhs copy
the last time i bought this cubase video it was really reasonable price coost only like 10-20 dollars im assuming
due to all time low interest in VHS tapes

many times the vhs tapes are kept by book store companies

Does anyone have the full version of the Notator Tutorial Video?

There are only some of the chapters on Youtube....
....and they are almost all about the score functions :/

(It's not Notator Version 9 of course :) it's the name of the girl/guy who uploaded it)

I've done some further testing...

Unfortunately it won't run with only 512KB of RAM.
I tried it in Steem, setting it as a 520STF and Creator crashes with a "Memory Panic" error.
I don't have a 520ST to try it in "real life".
Since the crack uses quite a bit of memory, it MAY be possible to run on a 520ST in "uncracked" mode (see above post) with a C-Lab dongle of any later version.

Of course, I cannot try that out in Steem 'cause my Asus laptop does not have a cartridge port :D

I found these two reviews of Version 1.2 (which seems to have been the first version commercially released in the UK):
Sound On Sound November 1987
Music Technology December 1987

:D we could only dream of a 286AT here in UK in 1988!!! I wish I had had one! :)))

PS.: I'd be interested to know if it does work on a real 520ST....

I've just tested it on my Atari STE and it works fine.
I loaded it up and recorded a couple of tracks with no issues.

To start the "cracked" version load 1_LOADER.PRG

The CREATOR.PRG file itself is not cracked and the program will freeze on the main screen.

However, the uncracked file will actually run with ANY C-Lab dongle, including a Notator one!
I tested it with Creator 2.2, Creator 3 and Notator 3 dongle and they all work.

It's a bit odd because normally Notator and Creator dongles are not interchangeable.

Running the program with a dongle instead of the crack actually gives you an extra bit of free memory (note that my Atari has 4MB so on a 1MB machine the difference would have been sizeable). See Pictures.

On the subject of dongles and versions: a Creator 3 dongle will run ANY previous version of Creator from the very first and a Notator 3 dongle will run ANY Notator version from the earliest one.
This is not true for Steinberg and Cubase: each main Atari version (1, 2 or 3) requires its own dongle although "Score" dongles will run their equivalent "standard" version (my Cubase Score 2.07 dongle runs Cubase "standard" 3.1)

Apologies for the digression :)))

link to /Creator_v1.3_(1988) (C-Lab)

does anyone know if this works?
so anyway
what we are really looking for then is a copy of performer that is from a bit later on.. like version 3 or 4
v1.xx is too old (original macintosh series)
and we need one that will run on mac II generation + beyond.. that would be performer 3.xx and performer 4.xx

i only have copies of v5.5 and v6.0
