  • Why we should design things to be difficult to use
    This is bullshit. We should not deliberately design things to be difficult. I can't believe some of you suddenly think the frustrations of setting up monomes ought to be seen in a positive light. In my opinion the author of the guardian articl…

    zebra: "what if serialialosc itself had a test option?" yeah. or, preferably, as a separate command line based program. my suggestion is - it should be very simple and should not even emit sound or anything. text based is okay for me. i&#…

    a suggestion: do not use max/msp in the examples on the monome setup pages. instead provide a super-simple platform independent test application. this application should not make sound. it should simply show connected devices, visualize button/enc…

    discopimp said: "serialosc, zerconf and whatnot came and using the monome became a pain" agreed. i still use monomeserial on my machines. could never get serialosc to work neither my macbook running leopard nor windows machine.

  • serialosc installation problem
    I managed to install serialosc 1.2a but it does not work properly. I guess osx leopard is a too old version. Not to much of a problem. I just continue to run old school monomeserial.

    nothing gets installed at all, as far as I can tell. serialosc/serialoscd in the terminal does not execute. where should it be installed? i'll try the 1.2a link. perhaps it's due to the old osx version. or i'll have to compile the so…

    @zebra , @tehn Thanks for taking the time to provide details.

    Yeah, to be honest, I thought that was the case. Bees to swap out monolithic DSP apps. And, it isnt such a big deal. As long as building blocks for DSP are provided in order to build DSP apps. No worries.
    jah ·  October 2013
  • aleph.
    Well I guess my "dream" above is impossible to implement on aleph. I guess the DSP graph - so to speak - has to be fixed during compilation.
    jah ·  October 2013
  • aleph.
    My dream was based on this quote: "[bees] can swap out the running DSP modules in real-ish time".
    jah ·  October 2013
  • aleph.
    Okay, then, so there's a distinction between standalone and bees apps. To me it sounds as if bees apps may have several different DSP modules running at the same time and these modules may be changed with a 1 sec operation. Akin to Synths in SC…

    I still dont really get the bees system and how it is related to the running app. Is bees always present on the aleph? I guess there is only one app running on the aleph at any given time - not several apps. How does bees fit in? Perhaps you can des…

    How customizable is the OLED display UI? Is a framework used that impose a certain type of menu system or is a developer free to put whatever text and graphics he or she wants on the display? Without having to develop your own firmware I mean.

    I tried searching for soundcards with AD1939 but could not find any. So, in theory, the aleph could act as a nice 4-in 4-out soundcard aswell? Nice.

    How is the AD1939 compared to other devices? Is it used in any soundcard? Is it comparable to the OP-1 ADC/DAC or better?
