Mind boggling. Honestly; it makes no sense.
SO I accessed the 'Factory Packs' folder using Live 8 and opened Kasio, no problem. My Max (runtime) window did show a warning but that was it. Yet this warning is mind boggling:You are opening a patcher or device created with Max 6 in an older
version of the software (5.1.9). It's possible that everything
will work just fine, but please be aware that some functionality
may not be backward-compatible. The newest version of the software
is available from http://www.cycling74.com/
So it was made with Max (for Live) 6 yet doesn't work on that platform?
So I loaded and unfroze the device and starting checking it out.
Now, it shouldn't matter for Max for Live, but it does look sloppy (to me that is, a matter of opinion obviously) that the author left test code inside the patch. I'm referring to the issue of using the outlets of plugout~, sending them to a live.gain~ object and sending all of that to an ezdac~ object.
That makes sense when you're working with Max, not so much Max for Live (though, once again, it shouldn't matter perse). However, I think it looks a bit sloppy.
But here is also where things get weird...
I unfroze the device in Live 8, I edited it and removed the parts which I considered "sloppy" or "overdone".
For people interested:
I changed "plugout~ 1 2" into "plugout~" because M4l is stereo by default.
I removed the live.gain~ object as well as the connected ezdac~ object.
Then I saved the (unfrozen) patch in my m4l folder. Started Live 9, waited for 1-2 minutes before this patch FINALLY showed up (the browser really starts to annoy me at times) and guess what?
It makes no sense.
Disclaimer: I'm not really interested in this patch myself, therefore didn't check the details. It makes sound on my end so I'm assuming it 'works'. Needless to say that I can't guarantee that it works completely.
I'll do some more tests and check if I can setup a download link (I can obviously put this patch online, but I don't think it'll work then).
