Consulting request - looking for export from ancient Mac .DD1 file to something readable by modern tools

I have access to Macs running system 9 that would run disk doubler, I used to use it as well, and early Omnis versions, the earliest I’ve now got is Omnis 7.1, although I did start with Omnis back in the 80’s I no longer have the applications

From memory I believe that there was a converter in that package as well for earlier libraries.

Happy to have a go if you send files
