lcd for beginners, sharing is fun

Jul 17 2006 | 9:24 am

lack of time (too many forum posts?) lets me never
finish my own apps anyway, so i share a little lcd
file today.
(mac and windows)

what in the heck is a .toast file? I’m so tired right now I can’t figure out how to use Google.

A disc image, as created by Roxio’s Toast CD burning

…so you have to buy Toast to open this patch…
and what about windows users ?…
A .zip file would preferable, don’t you think ?

hmmm, yes… I have Roxio Easy CD creator, and it knows nothing of a .toast file.

any chance of getting vst_lcd in a more generic file format, like perhaps?

I can’t remember if this works in this particular context and I don’t
have time to verify right now… but try changing the extension from
.toast to .iso ….. IIRC, toast format *is* ISO.

Hm. I just doubled-clicked on it an it opened as a disk image, much
like a dmg file–and I don’t have Toast installed.

MacOSX, to be sure. ymmv.

Now as to what 110 is/was…

An early MIDI library/patch editor, wasn’t it? Do I remember it on
Apple II even? Or am I completely off the mark. The look is familiar,

sorry, originally i planned to add how to open toast
on windows – but i couldnt refind the note where i
wrote it down how it works.
if you know how to use google you will find out.
in opposite to zip and sit, toast works on all OS
i know. :)

btw of course it supports drag and drop for VST plugs.

As far as I’m aware, a .toast file is just an ISO image with
a different extension.

Try renaming the extension to .iso and it should open in
WinRAR or another archive utility.

Or you could burn it with Nero, or mount it with DaemonTools…

on windows, i had to install isobuster to open it. would be nice to have a format that works on all OS without this 3rd-party annoyanceware narrischkeit.

As far as I know, stuffit expander does expand zip files even on OS 9…

The assumption that a .toast would work on all platforms is obviously
wrong (at least as long as you do not rename it into .iso…).
