Micro modular and new macbook...

Post by electro funker » Mon Nov 03, 2008 9:09 am

Ok,

I have come to that conclusion, that the software from clavia, is s**t together with my macbook. And yes, I have installed the newest OS. The problem is that the software program is gennerally unstable, it chrashes from time to time, sometimes it's comming up with this anoying debugger script thing, and that really makes me MAD! Does somebody know how to make it run more stable...?

And the answer is not " buy a windows computer..." or "just run bootcamp..." :)

this has long been my feeling towards clavia's forays into software.

Ha ha, no, the modular is a real workhorse, if I tryed to do some of the patches from my modular on a analog modular, it would take ages and I would have had to work the rest of my life, just to raise the money for the modules! :? The software worked perfect on my old dell 400mhz computer, so there have to be something that I got wrong...

have you tried the latest version of Nomad? hope it would work, because it's such a great synth.

Thank you, that worked things out! :) Hurrah, for nomad! But can I download more modules and extra stuff some where, since it's open source?

What is Nomad? Is it an add-on to the Clavia editing software (just got a Micro-Mod recently, software has worked okay, just loses the MIDI connection if I try to do to edit too many things quickly) or a replacement for it?

It's a replacement, with the bonus that it is much more stable on the new mac os... :P But at the sametime, it lack has some lack's,, fx. you can't see wich kHz you are working with on your OSC' s as you can on clavia's software, but it's allmost the same.

Ah, I see. I'm on a PC, so I reckon I'll stick with the Clavia editor for now. But I guess since it's open-source and still being worked on, there's potential for Nomad to catch up with the Clavia software and add new features at some point. Something to keep an eye on.

Clavia software is most up to date, but I think they dropped the mac version on v2.x?
v3 is the best one, it has optimized code so the DSP power is greatly reduced, meaning more modules in each patch + it added a dozen new modules. Also had a slight graphics update so things don't look so flat and 2D. No idea what the Nomad ed add or removes.

There is a ver. 3.03 for mac too, but yes, that's the one, running like a old car... A shame they haven't update it more, It's really a nice machine, and it sounds good to, though the filters could be analog... :(

great to hear that it works out. seems like all are what's included within the software. our only hope is for the new release or even more extreme if they ever release a new os for the hardware too, which I sense would be miles to hope.

even the filter sounds a bit more analog than the lead, but run it through a filter box would make it an even more wonderful synth. It's mostly fun processing those Nord's synth/drum sounds through extreme processing.
