Some exchange done by email :
It reads and plays all of your test files, though the MF01_E.hfe file
seems to be the best. I also set the emulator to "Shugart" mode and
tried ID-1A with the jumper - that did it.
So what do I need to do to create the correct files here on my Mac
BTW, thanks for all of your help!
You can use the HxC software to create an HFE file with the midi files :
First way :
-> Create FS Floppy -> File system type (3"5 1.44MB DSHD FAT12) -> Select directory, choose a folder on your mac with some midi files -> Create Disk.
Other way :
Create a folder containing your midi files with the name mydisk.fat1440 and drag&drop it on the main window.
of course don't put more than 1.44MB of files.
(the "mydisk" can changed as you want)
Before exporting don't forget to set the interface mode to "Generic Shugart" in the SD hxc window settings.
