Not selecting Millions in Color Depth does indeed allow my MacDraw to function properly on my Mac Mini 1.5 GHz machine!  Thanks!  BTW, as requested, I fired up the Wallstreet PDQ and set it to Millions, MacDraw does not work there at that Color Depth either.  I must have known that at one time and long forgotten about it!

> choose your favorite font, make a copy, rename it (or its contents) to "Sonata", reboot.

I strongly suspect that this topic is a big bore to most here, so let me start with a Tip about Fonts that might be useful to someone who arrived here by accident:

In OS 6, Apple Menu Items (then called Desk Accessories and Fonts needed to be in the System File. This was later eliminated, in OS 7, if I remember correctly. There was a utility called Font/DA Mover to do this. Even though unneeded, it continued to work even in OS 9.

And my tip is: if you held down the Option  Key before selecting your source or destination, Applications would become available  in addition to the System File. You could retrieve special fonts from games, for eg, and add them to the System File for use in a word processor. You could also embed a favorite font in an application, that would then be available on any computer it was copied to, even if the second computer did not have it installed.

Now to your suggestion:

NoteWriter's handling of both Sonata and text files was very primitive.

Open a new document in a word processor and type:   =    &   ?    w    h    q    s    r   (with spaces between characters)

and then copy that line and keep pasting it several rows down.  Then highlight one row at a time and change it to a music font:

For eg: Broadway Copyist, Engraver, Inkpen2, Jazz, Maestro, Opus, Petrucci, Reprise, Scriabin, Sonata

Finale and Sibelius may be able to use a number of them, but NoteWriter cannot handle the spacing differences.

I already mentioned that NoteWriter only uses noteheads and the program draws the stems, so trying to make them a bit wider, does not work, because the stem does not wind up at the edge of the note.

The nice thing about Sonata in NoteWriter (especially when reduced to say 60% when printing, is that NOTHING is bold enough, so my solution has been to export the file and "photoshop" it to make it bolder.

I would be delighted to exchange ideas with anybody that is still using NoteWriter privately.

This really is too esoteric for Mac OS 9 Lives!  This would be more suitable for  OS 6 Lives.  ;)

There was a certain disk iso floating around "DAW stuff" when installing a few things I had to remove some system extensions. I've suspected someone purposely snuck something in there considering every time I've messed with it problems would arise. I don't trust anything that's free to be brutally honest.

there are about 36 malsoftware for MacOS, of which 6 or 7 can cause actual harm. the newest one is from 2001. :)

all trojans i know are systemextensions, which can be removed by removing the systemextension. all file infectors i know can be "repaired" using norton so you dont loose any files. good old times....

Has anyone actually been able to perform any legit exploits? Would seem that most hackers would have long forgot about os9 and any of it's vulnerabilities.
1.52 is more or less a beta. but the look and the haptic of the mixer page is lovely and you have 4 more instrument slots :)

it also was the first host with plug-in info/certification and "preload waves"
The L2 Ultramaximizer plugin was released in January of 2001
for Pro Tools 24|Mix Mac-Based sy stems /w MSRP of $US 1200

attached is a copy of the press release for this plugin released by waves on January 18th, 2001
You know, it maybe worth trying to get the ATI Video extension working with this new patched ROM.

Maybe it won't hang the system anymore and we could get DVD playback?
this will be really great! ;D
... but take into account that none the new Mac Mini ROMs boot the eMac, only the "normal mini with happymactron" from 2018-04-08, AFAIK

NOTE: I have already bought the one off of jakl

Hi Folks I am looking for Logic Audio Blue USB Dongle/XSKey that is authorized for windows. We need one that works with logic 5, or even gold 5, or platinum 5. any of them would work for us. I am willing to pay more than a fair price for the legal working key  or if you are interested I have a either Logic Gold 4.8 and USB Dongle (authorized for MAC) or Logic audio silver 4.8.1 for MAC or Windows.  would  trade one of these for a working XSkey. AH heck if you have a windows authorized working XSkey for Emagic Logic 5 you can have both complete programs. Let me know what you have and price.
