As you've found out, there are no centralized resources of this type yet.

An archive of all the messages on this list since mid-July is here:

A quick perl4 hack that I use to search through that archive (and other
things) is here:

Subject: Gary Lee Nelson's Rand object

Is there a PPC version of the Rand (and RandIJ) object?   I have a program
that depends on it quite heavily, and would like to make it PPC compatible.

I've also had some success using Hypercard and the original QTVR XCMD's
from Apple.

I should be able to figure this out from what you just wrote, but did
you use the shareware (1.0) version of HyperMIDI, or the expensive ($195
US) version (3.0) with MIDI Manager support?

I wasted a lot of time figuring out that I had to go back to OMS version
1.2.3 so that I could use MIDI Manager (I had an unreleased MIDI Manager
XCMD written by a friend).

It sure would be nice to have an OMS XCMD. I'd rather not use MIDI
Manager anymore...
