linux default iconFDMS3-FS Publisher's description

FDMS3-FS is a FUSE filesystem driver for the fostex FDMS-3 as used by the various fostex digital multitrackers.

FDMS3-FS is a FUSE filesystem driver for the fostex FDMS-3 as used by the various fostex digital multitrackers, such as the FD-4, FD-8.

This driver presents the FDMS filesystem as a series of directories - one for each program (song) on the disk:


Each directory contains a number of .WAV files - one for each track:


These .wav files can then be played/mixed/ripped to disk as you want.


Step 1 - Image the hard disk (optional)

I suggest taking an image of the hard disk, rather than working with the original. Having said this, I see no reason why it would cause any problems, since no write operations are attempted. You can take an image like this:
dd if=/dev/hdd of=fostex-image.dd bs=512

This WILL take some time!

Step 2 - Mount the filesystem

./fdmsfs fostex-image.dd /mnt

If this fails, you probably have a problem with FUSE. Please check the fuse website for more help. If you are sure it's not a fuse problem, please let me know!

Step 3 - Use the .WAVs

ls /mnt

should produce a list of the available programs.

You can obviously copy the wavs somewhere else, encode them, import them into something like cubase/soundgarden or whatever. If you just want to play a song, I suggest using Audacity, which can load all the tracks for a partiular program, and play them together or mix them down.

What's New in This Release:

A bug that caused all 24-bit audio to be truncated to 3/4 length was fixed.
The code is now tested and working well with a variety of different devices.

No special requirements.
