I use 32bit portable Reaper.
For the portable installation just drop the files into the "Plugins" folder of your portable installation but you need a 64bit version of Reaper.
I guess I should add that to the documentation.

Is there any text/video which describes exact functionality of NKS keyboards with this extension in REAPER?

I do not have such keyboard but it provides accessible control for NKS plug-ins and so it is interesting for corresponding community.

The features (and limittions) are the same as with Bitwig, so you can watch my Bitwig videos:

Thanks! So MK1 is working directly throw your extension and MK2 throw NI service. Do you already have A-series or know if it is going to work throw NI service as MK2 or more like MK1?

I will try to explain. RWP community can not use lights and monitors. But NI has implemented accessibility in the service and it works with S. They will implement it for A, but it is not there jet. Some people are thinking what to buy.
On one side, S gives accessibility already now and MK2 gives it (if understood that correctly) for the DAW section as well, independent from the reaper extension which transfer the information (your extension is obviously not speaking, as all other surface extensions at the moment). The disadvantages is that MK2 has useless (for RWP) monitors and LEDs and as you say in the video does not support not NKS integrated plug-ins.
On the other side is A, which does not have useless components, lighter and cheaper. If it is working as S MK1, it will not have accessible DAW controls out of the box but has potential for overall accessible extension. In case it works as S MK2, it will have all advantages/disadvantages of current MK2 implementation.

I do not have one but might get one in the near future. NIs strategy is to use their host service.

As usual: if a feature is essential to you buy ONLY when it is really available!

For the MkII that is no longer true since the last update of Komplete Kontrol. It sends the necessary information now to Reaper and Bitwig as well. But you still cannot control any of the native or VST plugins. However, there is a workaround if you use the MIDI mode via Generic Flexi to map the device remote controls.

Documenting the experience with the new version 5 of DBM4R on both OSX devices here.
On the desktop, loaded with MIDI devices and controller drivers etc. stuck in OS 10.12.5 due to a third party MSATA driver etc. I'm still not seeing anything but the Push splash screen, the rest of the kobs and buttons are responsive though, everything works but the screen.

The current Logging in the controller configuration window,

Initialized.
Checking to see if anything changes if I unplug everything but Push 2......
So with only a Logitech bluetooth USB mouse and Push 2 plugged in, it's exactly the same.


Checking on the 2012 Macbook Pro running OSX Mojave it's working albeit with caveats, because of Apple's over aggressive security probably...
Reascript error pops up upon start of Reaper with this:
Quote:
Can't load file:

/Users/machinesmoblie/Documents/REAPER Media/DrivenByMoss4Reaper-2.0/eel/DrivenByMoss-Main.eel
So it has to be initially selected in the controller preferences and seems to work upon restart, but that dialogue still comes up when you open Reaper. The same if you shut down completely. You don't have to reconfigure the control script though.


So a non programmers guess is that there's something with OS 10.12.5 + your wonderful softwarepast version 3.31, because even with funky warnings Mojave is acting much better, and I should at least update this computer to High Sierra.

You did not uninstall Version 2.0 correctly (which used this script). See the Version 3.0 introduction video from minute 2:00 I explain how to uninstall V2.0: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKrASqhFvvQ

I am not sure if I followed your explanations above: you are saying it works now on one Mac but not on the other (with the above error)?
