You could always suggest they leave the covers off to allow room for the conductors! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Still pretty good for beta though, I'm just glad I have a way to save presets without a camera or a notebook :D
Welcome to the Minitaur family!

Are you running windows or mac? I haven't had an issue with naming presets on a win7 machine.

...and, I watched the Sonic State review of the MT and saw an extremely more kickass version of the editor for mac's. Guess they are focusing more on that than windows :(
I'm on a Mac! Still having the same issue, but I'm sure it'll be resolved in no time. I'm in no hurry :D

Siemens & GE for BACNet, which we can talk to them natively. Leviton relay panels are tops, bar none! :mrgreen:

Yeah, something tells me it's a code violation to leave Termination Blocks with 277VAC landed exposed to pokey customers :lol:

BTW, the problem was the power supplies were wired wrong from the factory, go figure. Now I am home playing with my MT & LP (among others :) )

woops!! pt.2

Not at all! Both versions should be equally kickass when finished. It's just that the Mac beta is further along than the Windows version. I actually got a new Windows build last night, which I need to test. I'm told it still crashes on Capture though, which we'll need to fix...

have patience, kickass finished editors are coming for all :)
I would greatly appriciate linux compatibility as I think it is a fantastic audio platform, as distributions like AV linux tune the operating system itself to obatin minumum latency by placing a higher priority on audio processes. An entirely new editor will not be needed as a linux program called wine (also available for osx) runs windows programs, but not all of them. One program that does not run in wine is the midi murf editor, I hope the minitaur editor will be more friendly with it.

Apparently I missed this reply, Amos. Good to hear! I love the look of the version on the SS Review. Exactly what I had pictured. Curious, were ya'll able to get the "floating" windows to work in Windows like in the Mac Version?

Safe to say, and likely not a far off guess, that the guys writing the Mac version of the editor already had all of the fancy knobs and panel textures from the iPad and iPhone apps. I'm unsure of what tool they are working with but it may or may not be platform compatible from an interface perspective which means double work.

It is gorgeous on the Mac though.

hey folks, i'm not having any luck with the minitaur editor working. im on a macbook pro, USB to mini, when i turn a knob in the editor, the midi out LED flashes, but no output of data. no change of parameter on the unit. i've tried both a USB-MIDI cable using the midi in, and that doesnt work either. what am i doing wrong? thanks, rj

Did you choose the device (the Minitaur attached to the appropriate port).

The setting is 'under the hood'. May seem somewhat obvious and suggesting this is a bit like asking 'is it plugged in?' but it stumped me at first.

If you have the miditouch app, I made a controller for it (and just re-upped it with a couple of small tweaks): http://www.moogmusic.com/forum/viewtopi ... 443#p94443

The only drawback is there is no way to store patches within miditouch, so you would still have to rely on the moog editor for storing presets. But, in my setup it works nice to have the editor right there to access the hidden midi settings and only occasionally going to the computer to save a new preset.

I said this idea to Perry Moog Tech Support
may I suggest one more window a step sequencer window with a virtual keyboard to enter notes that is syncable to midi clock or can be used as a plugin with your DAW
I would be inclined to make it like a TB -303 style step sequencer or even like the old Moog modular step sequencer--the output should be able to be saved as a midi file so you can import into main DAW for further advanced processing if need be
Then i would use the application to discover baselines that i normally would not have created just like I do with my hardware sequencers

Does anyone know how I can get the Minitaur Editor? I registered my Minitaur already but couldn't find a link to download it.
