Is there an official Diehard instant DAW thread?
« on: September 22, 2016, 11:07:18 AM »
Hi all, after successfully installing the great instant DAW on my MDD Powermac 3,6 I'm really keen to start messing with it and adding stuff, installing various bits and bobs and I wondered if there was an official thread to discuss anything related to it?

My first question is can you drag all files from the boot volume to another volume and it'll just boot exactly the same?  I guess CCC would do that?

Admin please move to relevant thread if need be, cheers!

u dont need an official thread.. its just a save point to save u the trouble of having to install all that basic stuff to get u up and running fast..... whatever u need to talk about now, address it specifically and discuss that specific program or plugin !

theres more than enough software specific zones in the forums site here
ie: if talking about cubase , make a post in the cubase section etc
diehard obviously is firmly rooted in the steinberg camp.

congrats on your instant DAW + good luck ;)

No, Draging the files will give you a bootable OS 9 Volume, but the authorized plugins will NOT work; the beauty of the ASR (please search the forum) is that it will recreate details of a volume so precisely, that the copy protected audio plugins still function :)

Excellent, I ended up using the full restore as I had done first time round and all worked great!!!

I installed Pro Tools last night and tonight is the final stage before I start getting those old songs up!  I'll be installing Logic and all my old VST instruments and plugins, then it's just a case of loading a song up and telling Logic where to find all the audio files and I'm away!

I'm hoping to get some old projects fully up and running and I'll post some video and share in here when I'm done.

Thanks guys! Salut!

Hi there

I'm trying to install Os9 via the instant daw, but It seems I'm having problem downloading uncorrupted files.. The setup gives me a checksum error , the system is bootable but half the programs are kinda croppy..
I've uncompress everything on osx with stuffit 10, it is correct?
The link provided in the download section is always not working\busy for me now, and so I cant re-download everything..

Thank you in advance!

Un-encode (take off Mac Binary) on all the 4 "img.bin" files using Stuffit; do NOT extract these in any way, they are not ".sit" files

Then remove mac bin encoding from the "Apple Software Restore.sit.bin" file using stuffit and then uncompressed using stuffit 7.0.3, place all files in same folder and read instructions; nothing is corrupt and it has worked for many;  I suggest you get an OS 9 system up with a basic install first and do NOT use OSX to assemble the DAW install

Thanks for the advice! Sorry, I'm a total apple-noob ;D  I'll try to install Os9 from cd this week ! It's just me, or the downloads from adrive has stopped working? I get always the same "server busy error" + something about turning on javascript that on my browser should be already active!  ???
Tested on 2 pc, with different internet connection + 2 different browsers (Chrome and Edge Windows10)
