Re: Are you still using Firewire?

I have a Digidesign 003 rack which has been sitting dormant for a few years. Last time I tried to use it I had to try two different 1394 cards to find a chipset which was compatible. Additionally, finding drivers which actually work (for Windows at least) was almost impossible. As I recall the only ...

Re: What did you bought on Back Friday Sale ?

Native Instruments Razor. Had my eye on it for a while. Very pleased after a brief play with it last night.

Re: Plugin format (software folks, opinions needed)

Since you are doing Windows only I would suggest looking into VST.Net. It encapsulates some of the gory details to help get started, then, once you are more familiar with the native VST API you can get into that also. That's pretty interesting. Would I incur a performance penalty by using .Net? It ...

Re: Per month and per year subscriptions for ableton

I can only echo that I think this is not a good idea and I hope it never happens. I really dislike this trend towards subscription based software products rather than the traditional one off purchase. You will always end up paying more.

Re: CD's and the modern world

I for one still always buy CD releases if they're available though being in my 30s I'm probably outside of the demographic you mention ;)

Re: Novation Launchcontrol device mode

I've knocked something up which is pretty much working now. There's likely bugs and the code is not pretty but as a proof of concept it works. If you try it out let me know!

Re: Novation Launchcontrol device mode

I think many people don't know the first thing about coding and phyton etc. So if it could be made in a way that it could be just one more .py file to be put into the respective Midi control scripts folder, that would be great. I assume though that somehow the script in question would have to accou...

Re: Novation Launchcontrol device mode

Interesting, please do! Any way to make this somehow controller agnostic? There are a lot of 8 encoder controllers without displays! The display app receives JSON describing the bank and parameter names so is already controller agnostic. As for the control script side I could pull out the Python wh...

Re: Novation Launchcontrol device mode

I've started work on some changes to the Launch Control's MIDI remote scripts which allow it to notify an external program when the bank changes in order to display the parameter names. This is actually quite easy and almost working already. If I end up with something decent I'll release the source ...

Re: Novation Launchcontrol device mode

The regular mapping (that also normaly Push uses) is in the Midi remote script folder under _Generic Thanks for the pointer. I'll go and have a look at that then to at least try and make some sense of it. Will also check out your remapping too. 3rd party devices map in the order you configure them....
