Studio

What

Qwertz oldschool Apple laptop. Ideally we can use it to program the Opcode Studio 4.

Specs

  • Mac OS D2-9.1 (German)
  • PowerPC 603ev CPU @ 166MHz
  • 56MB RAM
  • 2GB ATA hard disk

Log

  • Got a suitable power supply, it uses M4895 or M4896 or compatible. I ordered a M4896 from the ebays \o/ and it works.
  • Put Opcode Open Music 2.3.8 on a CF card and tried installing it using a PCMCIA -> CF convertor
  • Dropped network driver for Etherlink III PCMCIA ethernet card from http://www.floodgap.com/retrotech/mac/enet3c589/ in System folder but it doesn't seem to work with the card tested.

Turning it on

It doesn't (always) turn on properly. I've seen following working:

  • Fold screen open
  • Kill all the power, so remove battery and plug
  • Wait 'til green LED on screen is off
  • Put battery and power plug back in

Todo

Get some networking on it, either wired or wireless. It will most probably need drivers tho.
