I looked at #27 and #19 - no luck. Maybe it has never been included?

If ever it was uploaded to Aminet, then it should be on at least one of the CDs.

If it cannot be found, then it must have been deleted before the compilation of the next CD to be released following its upload.

@prowler: that would be kind. since i guess it should have placed on the lower numbers, i have not much hope - if on CDs at all. thanks
@zipper: no good info - but may be the reason. thnx

Searching for NoCD on Aminet currently lists 355 files:

http://aminet.net/search?readme=NoCD&start=0

There is also a NoCD text list from 1999:

http://aminet.net/docs/lists/AminetNoCD.txt

tmidi does not appear on the list...

This original Dreamland page on arc.org from 1999 also has no link to tmidi on Aminet (well it does but...):

The Aminet wiki has a list of commercial products, for each CD there's cover scans and an ASCII index file:

http://wiki.aminet.net/Commercial_Aminet_products

Use the search function at the top right to find out if a certain file was ever included in any of the disks.

Your best bet for locating tmidi.lha would be to get hold of the author. You might get lucky using some FTP search engine - there are lots of old and no longer maintained Aminet mirrors out there. But I doubt tmidi.lha has been online long enough to still be available like that.

While googling for tmidi, I found your other thread about this package. To answer your question:
Quote:
did they randomly removed files from aminet?
No. After the first few years (early nineties), files were only removed from Aminet on request of the author or if they contained legally dubious files (e.g. stuff that is (c) Commodore).

thanks you James & Korodny.
the wiki search is nice, bookmarked
i also tried metasearch engines, bing, ftp searches. nothing.
i tried to contact the author on his music group website (the_CloseUP) - but this did not work. registered there but could not send messages.
the aminet link you can find on this dreamland archive. maybe someone else uploaded it to aminet and then it was removed , not confirmed by the author.
i should try to find him somewhere else. his name pops up here and there. i hope too he does some historical searches on his products, so he must find eab.
anyway, thanks for looking

Hi Emufan,

I also tried to find the tmidi.lha file by FTP searching yesterday, but to no avail.

Today I have searched Aminet CDs 1-26 for this file, but again I have come up with nothing.

Aminet CD 26 has some files in the Aminet/mus/midi folder relating to a TMIDITY utility. It seems to be a MIDI to WAV file converter using "Gravis Ultrasound patches", but I assume this is not what you are looking for.

I stopped at CD26, having exhausted half of them, because you suggested that if it could be found, then it would probably be on one of the earlier CDs.

I will look at CDs 27-52 tomorrow if you still think it might be worth it.

thank you prowler. i was searching in the aminetcd index files 1-39 myself. and 52. no luck, maybe 40-51 , you can try. then i'm convinced, we must find it somewhere else
tmidity is different. player/converter, can use soundfonts to play midi files, IIRC.
thanks for looking.

oh. so i misread your posting. sorry. misleaded by "commercial products" - not aminet sets itself, the applications on it i thought.

@prowler: so you can really skip it. thanks.

You're too late!

Earlier this evening, not only did I check the rest of my Aminet CDs, but also the BCI.net CDs, Meeting Pearls I-IV and all the other Amiga Utilities CDs I have for the tmidi.lha file, but without any luck whatsoever!

That file seems to have so completely vanished since that link was posted, it's almost as if it never existed!

Sorry it's only more bad news...
