For the people :)
I’ve updated the download links on the right with the b994 release content. The most significant changes with the new version are Max 6 compatibility, addition of CNTRL:R support for several Codec patches, a new Codec script with additional functionality, and a completely new mod for CNTRL:R (“hex”). There are many other changes I’ve neglected to note (some of the changes I’ve noted in the readme.txt included with the installer content…honestly, though, I’ve lost track of some of the changes). Due to multiple computer issues I’ve had over the last month, my working version of these files has been tossed back and forth between machines several times, so please let me know if something has become corrupted or out of date. I’ve tried to re-test as much of this release as possible, but it’s possible that some things have gotten by me.
I’ve received reports that the installer is working on all systems, however you may need to select ”Run as administrator” for Live when using the installer on Win7 or Win8 systems, and then browse to the installer patch in Live’s browser in order for it to work. Also, I’ve heard no reports of succes on Win8 or OSX.8, so I’d appreciate some feedback in this regard. I’d really like to come up with another installation solution for Windows, but the time commitment is fairly severe for this sort of thing since ultimately it comes down to writing a new external to handle file copying.
I’ve updated some of the documentation on the wiki for the current feature set, including new pages for “hex” and the new Codec controller script. I’ll attempt to add to these further in the coming week, as well as add some new videos to my YouTube channel for various things (this always takes longer than it should).
First order of business for me is to get all this stuff onto the SVN repo and re-integrate installer support. I’ve heard that users can’t open the frozen patches on Windows systems, and this at least will allow checkout of all the individual unfrozen files for those that wish to edit some of this stuff.
I have a huge list of new things that will be going into b995, and some additional revisions that you’ll see to individual patches before that. Some of the additions:
Replacement of Nomeout with a new Python solution.
Monomodular integration of the CNTRL:R surface.
New MonoDeviceComponent for Monomodular.
New Endcoder patch based on the MonoDeviceComponent.
Hex support for Monomodular.
Hex additions for copy/paste of patterns, user customization of mode switching, fixes for FreeWheel mode, and various other improvements based on my experience from continued use of the patch.
As I mentioned before, b995 will probably be the last update for Live 8. However, I’m hoping that most of the functionality between Live 8 and Live 9 versions of Monomodular will be compatible between both versions; the jury is still out.
As always, thanks for the support, and let me know if you find anything that’s not working right. I’ll drop another blog post when I get around to the incremental….if I find any problems, I’ll just update the current package with the updated one and you can re-download and reinstall it.
