Software and files not recognised

Post by BenViolin »

Hi I am running 0S9 within sheep shaver. I didn't set it up with a ROM, just downloaded it from here http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/macos9osx.html#howtouse and it is ready to go. It works on my MacBook Air, and I can transfer files to it, but they are not recognised there. I'm trying to install an old version of Pro Tools called Pro Tools Free. Can anyone help?

Thanks

I´m under the impression that ProTools, like other "music" software, needed dedicated hardware to run.
The required sound hardware often were add in cards of Nubus type.
SheepShaver is emulating an early PCI Mac with a PPC 604 cpu. Apple dropped Nubus in favour of PCI after the PowerMac 8100/av IIRC.
For several reasons, there is no way to address Nubus devices with SheepShaver.

Which demo software are you trying to run?
Macintoshgarden is hosting some flavours of ProTools: https://macintoshgarden.org/search/node/pro%20tools
Again, I doubt that you can do anything with it in Mac emulation. :(
