Hi everyone
My copy of DMCS from ca 1988 opens in Sheepshaver and appears to behave normally, but when I attempt to open a score that I really want to try to recover (there's just one) I get a big crash (my guess is that it has something to do with sound--but I'm baffled). Does anyone have a working copy of DMCS, or would anyone be willing to convert the score to a midi file for me?
Thanks!

It is from 1986, not 1996

I remember the Amiga version.

That one is the precursor. Apple II, Apple IIgs, Atari 8-bit, Atari ST, Commodore 64, PC Booter...

We can't find http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/deluxe-music-construction-set-25 a download for that, so if you want us to try in OS9 native vs Sheepshaver, attach the DMCS and the score file.

I'm afraid that this will be happen in a real Mac also. Unless you use a real old Mac like a 68k with System 6 or 7 ...

Ah, that's too bad--but I guess it was a bit of a long shot. I remember that I used it with my Mac SE, so I guess that would have been OS 6 or so...
Thanks anyhow.

ronsonjonson:
This is pretty wild, but I got OS 6 running using MinivMac, made a new HFS disk image with DMCS and my docs on it....AND IT WORKS!!!! Thanks for the tip about non-compatibility with OS9--that was the clue I needed to properly remember what the operating system was back then. Now for the excitement of trying to export something...
