  • Thanks for the info and the followup!
  • You're welcome!
  • You're welcome!
  • You can certainly just make a registry entry there yourself. The string entry should be named VSTPluginsPath, and then just enter the path to your desired plugin folder. See the first image below. Also know that there might be another VST entry i…
  • And again to be sure - the plugins MUST be the 64 bit versions.
  • Not a nuisance at all, I hope everything is working right!! So in M185, the plugins are listed at the bottom of the dropdown in the Output section, the lower right of the Main window. On top will be your MIDI devices, then you should see your plug…
  • Hi Karel - please let me know what part is still confusing, and I will try to clear things up!
  • Hello @emage and @llorenzo - I've got a new Mac OS X version of MC-202 Hack that I think addresses the problem with the app not starting on newer Mac OS's. Would either/both of you be interested in testing it before I release it publicly? If so, p…
  • OK great - not sure why that occurred, but regardless glad you're up and running!
  • Do you mean the button in M185 that has the three little dots on it in the Output section, that appears when you have selected a plugin from the dropdown menu? If so - that's not a button that allows you to select a plugin, it's simply the button t…
  • Hi Stephen - assuming that you selected the Keylab in the dropdown menu after you've selected MIDI, and you've either chosen the correct MIDI channel in the next dropdown, or selected "Any" there, I'm afraid I don't have many ideas.... Can you confi…
  • I'm not sure exactly where in the OS you are when you say that "clicking on the folder button doesn't open the folder"? I've never experienced that - perhaps some weird permissions thing? Anyway, yes, the problem is that on Windows, there has nev…
  • Hi Karel, and Happy New Year! Yes, there is no ability in the new versions to specify a custom plugin folder path. I definitely debated whether or not to do this; I’m now using default plugin scanning behavior that Max offers me (M-185 and all of …
  • I'm afraid I can't help on this one, sorry! Personally I've never had an issue with that chip going bad - perhaps there's something wrong elsewhere in the unit that's not making it behave correctly?
  • Thanks for the report - I can reproduce your experience using the Zyn-Fusion v3.03r20 demo, using the app in both 32 or 64 bit modes. I'll have to investigate with Cycling 74, as I'm dependent on Max's plugin support within Audio Plugin Player. …
  • Great, glad it's working well for you with your setup!
    in Drum Kit? Comment by dnigrin March 2018
  • Just to update this thread, starting in the just released version 2.1 of the app, General MIDI drums are now accessible via MIDI channel 10.
  • Just FYI, the latest versions (starting with v2.0) of General MIDI Player do now play General MIDI files.
  • In the meantime - some users (including me!) have had success in repeatedly trying to open the app; if nothing happens after launching the app, force quit it, and then try again. Sometimes after 3 or 4 or 5 tries it magically starts to work!
  • Thanks for confirming. I will continue to investigate and work on a solution, my apologies in the meantime.
  • Basically you just need to install this older version of Java on your system, it shouldn't matter if you also have the newer one installed as well, they can coexist (at least they do on my machines): https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572?locale=en_US…
  • Being very honest, I'm still stumped by this, I apologize. I just haven't been able to figure it out yet. I'm still almost positive it's a Java issue, but the problem is that it seems to be intermittent; I have machines where sometimes I can get i…
  • Yes, you can run multiple instances, and have each instance set to a different MIDI channel or device. To create a new instance, follow these steps: 1) Control-click on the app, and select Duplicate 2) Control-click on the duplicated app, called…
  • That's fantastic, thanks for sharing that info, I'm sure will be helpful to other people!
  • Version 1.3.1 is now available on the App Store for free update. It hopefully addresses the crashing issue on 10.13.x (as well as a few other things). I'm still wrestling with some plugin's copy protection, which the app is not working right with.…
  • Just wanted to follow up on this - the new version 1.5 available in the App Store as a free update now allows for pitch bend while in MIDI mode.
  • I haven't heard anything on my end, sorry... One thing I might suggest - if you can track him down, John Fera from Peavey, who designed at least the software for the PC1600(x), in the past was very helpful when issues arose with the device. Maybe t…
  • I've confirmed that there is in fact a problem with the app not starting up properly in some situations on 10.13.1. I'll be working towards implementing a fix soon, stay tuned and sorry for the problem.
  • Sure: dan@defectiverecords.com
