Title: Cannot open this Studio vision file with any version of Opcode I have...
Post by: xeenmusic on April 03, 2019, 10:23:46 PM
I am going through some old data to archive for a friend of mine back in the early 90s.
We have been able to open and convert all of the files to midi format except for a single one.
 
His Macintosh was installed with Studio Vision version 1.5.
(We unfortunately cannot get this running because it says that the program has expired and we no longer have the discs).
We installed the more recent demo which was linked to from this site and this is not able to open it (though it can open others). Either way, it would not let you convert it to midi because of being a demo if it did.
We downloaded the windows version from here and this is also able to open all files except this one.
We do not have a more modern Macintosh to install and test if a more modern version will work, and some other versions we downloaded here will not install properly on the old Mac.

The Macintosh registers the file as a "MIDS" with the program being "MIDA" and gives a proper Studio Vision Opcode icon.

I am going to post it here to see if anyone can do anything with it. At this point we don't even know what the track actually is. But we would like it to be converted into midi format. (If any channels are muted in the original project, please make sure these are unmuted and please let us know what those are if that happens to be the (unlikely) case.)

NOTE: I did notice that none of the uploads available have Studio Vision Opcode version 1.5. If someone is interested, I could see if I could upload the files still installed on the Macintosh even if I no longer have the disks themselves.

Thank you,
Andrew

Thank you for the reference. I tried to contact that individual awhile ago. But I never received any sort of response.
Are there any other options?
