Does your Oasys PCI or Pulsar II cards really work with OS X? I also want know what driver versions?
15 min demo version is here: https://web.archive.org/web/20051108052133/http://www.troikatronix.com/midibridge9x.html
I also interested to find programmer of MidiBridge9X. He might be Mark Coniglio an he lived in New York that time. Does anybody know him?
Although Midibridge9x is little bit dirty hack to use TCP/IP and "black window"-technology get midi between classic and OSX. I might be interested in continue that work.

If somebody make Mac OS 9 driver for MIDI Network Driver Protocol:
https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/Audio/Conceptual/MIDINetworkDriverProtocol/MIDI/MIDI.html
then there can be more clean way to send midi between Classic and OS X 10.4/10.5 or even two computers.

I bought my first new Mac when OS X 10.1 released. And I bought that Mac because it had Mac OS 9 too. And I bought my first 68k Mac when Apple stopped PPC Macs.

Thank! I'll try! Korg Oasys PCI runs in OS X 10.4 emulation mode. Driver version 2.01 for Mac OS classic. For Creamware Pulsar 2, I installed the Scope 3.1 platform. I am almost new to Cubase VST / 32 and would like to use Cubase SE, but it works on Mac OS X and I cannot configure MIDI.

If that Cubase thing is only reason use OS X then you should use that setup with Mac OS 9 and Cubase VST or another sequencer.

Yes, you are right, but I have not used Cubase VST / 32 for more than 20 years and forgot a lot.
And for me,  quite difficult to configure OMS.

And for me,  quite difficult to configure OMS.

This might help:
- Put all MIDI-interface drivers to your OMS folder
- Connect only MIDI-interfaces
- Then setup OMS
- Save your setup
- Connect MIDI-devices to MIDI-interfaces
- Start sequencer and choose there OMS-ports

So what I don't do, I don't configure what I connected to ports, it's useless information.
You can write it to track name or paper  ;)
