The Analogue Ripper

The Analogue Ripper 1.02 or TAR for short, by Ian Mann, lets you record sounds from any analogue source onto your Macintosh Computer.You can record from cassettes, vinyl, 8 Track, reel to reel even VHS, in fact - anything that you have playback equipment for. Version 1.02 works with USB Audio devices and monitor sizes down to 800 x 600 pixels.

TAR records straight to disk so it does not require large amounts of RAM.
TAR has powerful editing features that let you easily break LPs, cassettes etc up into discreet tracks, nice if you don't always want to listen to tracks 1,2,and 3 before track 4.
TAR produces tracks in AIFF format which are suitable for burning direct to CD or encoding to Mp3 or other compressor.
TAR lets you choose an encoder - or other application - and send the tracks to this as you save them.

Here's what one of our users had to say:
"Tab'n Dex is faithful to the tradition of all good Mac software: easy to understand, simple to use, elegant in design. Its interface is clean and uncluttered, and the flexibility of its end-user modifications accommodates individual needs. This is an excellent piece of work." A. Alessi
MacFormat called Tab'n Dex "As good a personal information manager as any available in the shareware world." and gave it an 88% rating.
Tab'n Dex can be used as a PIM to store information about all of your personal contacts and can also be set up to function as a database for your CD-Rom collection, book library, employee database or anything else you might want to track.

The Official FutureBASIC Threaded CGI (TCGI) Page

On December 12, 1998, Stratford Enterprises (now InterNetyx) released the FutureBASIC Threaded CGI programming framework to the Apple Macintosh (WebStar) webmaster and FutureBASIC II programming community. The programming framework was developed over a period of months by Dr. Steven J. Stratford of InterNetyx and even now (7/99) is undergoing revision, improvement, and enhancement.

The FutureBASIC TCGI Framework is industrial strength, has been thoroughly tested, and is in regular use in some or all of the applications below on a production server. It's well-behaved, fast, and solid. It's MacOS-only (with a genuine user interface!), designed for use on WebStar servers. Examples are available for trying out on our Wares page. It only has one drawback--FutureBASIC II only produces 68000 code. However, FB-III is on its way...

Esper is a simple to use but sophisticated program for testing the four main psychic powers - clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition and psychokinesis - using your personal computer! You can be part of the quest to prove the existence of ESP! Or if you're a sceptic, prove that your friends don't have it!!!
Esper uses computer-generated "ESP cards" to perform tests similar to those pioneered by ESP researchers, and "popularised" by GhostBusters ®! And by giving you instant feedback of your results (if desired), Esper can be used to develop any latent psychic abilities you might have!
Esper is easy and fun to use, while remaining scientifically valid. It keeps track of your results and calculates the chance that your scores are simply due to luck, or indicate real abilities. It also estimates your "PsiQ", what you could call your "psychic intelligence quotient".
Esper is also perfect for university or college use, and cheap enough to be affordable.
All this for only $35 (Australian dollars - about US $28)

Mr. Cat, finding his wife no where to be found, instantly heads off to the lost caves, far away from the town of Catland where Mr. Cat lives. Now you must help him!

I am Simon. I am a fox. I was minding my own business, trying to get food, when they caught me. I should have heard them coming. I was a fox after all. Foxes are swift and have good ears. That's why I think I wasn't normal. I know now that I'm not. When they grabbed me, My life changed forever. They picked me up and locked me in a cage in their truck. They took me to their lab and injected me. That's when it happened. Suddenly I had a mind. I had real thoughts. And I was stronger. I could push stones. Big stones. And I had telepathy and telekinesis. I wasn't a fox anymore. I was Simon, and I had power. I soon realised I would stay in the cage, Forever if they had their way. The scientists wanted to keep me, In their lab. Late one night, I escaped. I went out of that lab and, I don't know why and probably never will, I went into the next one. Something was pulling me. Inside the lab there was a door, With a glow in the cracks. I went through the door. Even I don't understand what happened next. I was somewhere else. It was different there. But I soon realised to escape from this, Alternate universe, I would have to use my powers, To avoid enemies and get to exits. But you can and must guide me. Think and I can read your thoughts. With your help, I can escape. Please.

is a versatile data acquisition program that uses either a National Instruments Lab-NB Nu-bus board, a National Instruments PCI-1200 board, a National Instruments DAQCard-1200 PC-card, or an external Data Electronics DataTaker or Remote Measurement Systems ADC-1 as the analog-to-digital converter. Sampling rates are much faster and the range of acceptable input voltages is much larger if you use the Lab-NB, DAQCard-1200, or PCI-1200. The program will record up to 12 channels of data, and up to 29,950 samples per channel (somewhat less if your screen width is less than 832 pixels).
LabHelper requires at least 3 megabytes of free memory and a screen at least 640 pixels wide.
is a powerful, versatile, and easy to use graphical analysis program designed for LabHelper data files. However, it also accepts Sable Systems SSCF files and most ASCII text-formatted files (within the size limit of 14 channels by 29,950 samples). It allows a wide range of data manipulations (lag correction, conditional smoothing, spike removal, baseline correction, etc.), transformations (logs, inverses, interchannel operations, integration, derivation, polynomials, etc.), many built-in unit conversions, and a number of frequently used analytical procedures and statistics (basic descriptive stats, determination of minimum, maximum, most level and most variable segments, waveform, time series, and FFT functions, regression, integration, differentiation, etc.). Simple scripting functions are available to automate repetitive conversions and analyses. Program output can be routed to disk files in several formats or to a printer. The program is particularly versatile for use with respirometry (calculation of rates of gas exchange). It will correctly compute exchange rates for a wide variety of respirometer flow systems, with different arrangements of flow meters, analyzers, and scrubbing systems, including most mask-based systems.
LabAnalyst requires at least 3.5 megabytes of free memory (if you use large files, 5 megabytes is better) and a screen at least 640 pixels wide.
WartHog FileMerge
The file merge program will combine a number of small data files into a single large file, up to a maximum size of 12 channels by 24,960 cases. The program will check the start and end times of each new file, warn if there is time overlap, and allow some adjustment of timing. A slightly less versatile merge routine is built into LabAnalyst.
Memory requirement: 2 to 3 Mb; program size about 300 Kb. Works best on large-screen (i.e., 640X480 screen) color machines.
Injection Calculator
The injection calculator will compute gas exchange (oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production) in a sealed respirometry chamber, based on % concentration changes, volume, RQ, and elapsed time. It compensates for pressure and temperature, and displays both absolute STP gas volumes (ml) and exchange rates (ml/min).
Memory requirements: ~250 Kb. Will run on nearly any Macintosh.
Flow Rate Calculator
The flow rate calculator will compute an accurate STP flow rate based on either a rate output or a cumulative volume measurement. It compensates for temperature, pressure (both ambient barometric pressure and internal pressure in the flow meter), and different meter calibration temperatures. A similar calculator is built into LabAnalyst.
Memory requirements: ~200 Kb. Will run on nearly any Macintosh.

Price: Freeware
