I tried M4L and learned enough of it to learn that it doesn't actually do the things I want (in-Live routing, altering the main GUI, etc).JuanSOLO wrote:I dont know, seems no different than giving someone a box of modular synth modules and a rack.
Some will dive right in and figure it out, others will be stumped by the options and give up easily.
When building in M4L, alt click on objects, learn what they do. The documentation is very through for these kinds of platforms.
Of the things I want that it can actually do I found that other tools did them better, less obtrusively, more immediately. EG: snapshots = ClyphX , making instruments or effects = Synthmaker or Reaktor, for a user-library = Reaktor.
I write code myself, and I also very much like modularity. I am certainly not afraid of putting in the time if the payoff was worth it. I appreciate that for other people it is the perfect solution , whether that because of their style of music, or the way they work. For me it does not solve my problems so it is not worth it.
