Does anyone have Sternberg's MIDEX 3 driver for os9 from the original CD, please?

the midex 3 is a 2 in / 2 out usb midi interface
i remember someone telling me that the device itself was manufactured by another company for steinberg and that it really was identical to that companies own product + could therefore use their drivers..

i may be wrong but thinking about it + trying to remember what i read, im pretty sure it works with the midiman midisport drivers.

i reccomend you try it with the driver from the midisport 2x2 mac os 9 driver + see if it works! and report back your results

more info: http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php?topic=163.0

compare these images with the device and u can see that midiman did probably in fact produce the midex3 and that it is indeed a midisport 2x2




they just made a custom case for it that made it visually appear different on the outside branded with the steinberg logo

another image to compare the midex 3 with..
pretty sure its just one of these in a new box with the steinberg logo on the top






u see it has the same number of lights aswell + similar location of all connections

just use the midisport 2x2 driver!
dont forget to install oms!

ok u know what.. i may have been wrong.. and confused the midex3 with another 2x2 clone of the midisport


so try this file instead:
http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=1465.0;attach=608


its a .smi.bin of the midex 8 drivers.. i just read on another site that the midex 3 + midex 8 used the same driver file..  so try this
+ PELASE GIVE FEEDBACK

UPDATE:
i checked the readme file date on this and it says july 16th 2002
so maybe that wont work at all because the midex 3 wasnt out yet then..
hmmmmm

maybe try the macos9.zip file in this directory:
ftp://ftp.steinberg.net/Archives/Hardware/Midex_8/Mac/

UPDATE: ok nope. i checked that and its the same july 16th 2002 dated file

ok i just doublechecked the announcement above is dated january 2002 from harmonycentral so it might work afterall! give it a go!!!!!
