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.

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:

/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.

Moss, I am using your latest release with a Novation SL MkI and it's working great. It's faster than Automap and is super easy to install now. Thank you! Not many config options though. Do you still have an SL? Any plans for it? Open to suggestions?

So like most of us I have a desktop and laptop, Mac Pro 2009 Macbook Pro 2012.
After that one little thing with the old version the laptop works perfectly. No issues OS Mojave.

I've mostly been working with the Mac Pro, this is the computer that for whatever reason just does not work with your wonderful software... The LED display shows nothing. All the buttons and pads light up but the display screen is blank. I've tried as much as I can think of to get it to work.

I've tried:

Unplugging all USB devices and hubs from the computer, only the Push 2.

Starting Reaper as root, this kills Reapers license every time, and Reaper then refuses to see the REAPER folder and loads ini files into the Application folder next to Reaper.. oh and the display is still blank.

Removing all VSTs.

Uninstalling Reaper, all preferences and dependancies.

Installing High Sierra since I was on Sierra. (the video card doesn't support Mojave)

I loaded all the odd drivers for things like the Slate Raven (V-Control Pro and UPDD software etc.) I had on the desktop on the laptop to see if that caused the laptop to suffer the same problem, but it just worked fine...


The Desktop Mac Pro continues to throw out this warning etc. in the Logging for the controller in Reaper. (the laptop does not)

Thanks for the additional info. I have now the same issue as you, which means I can reproduce the error. But I have so far no idea whats the problem. It seems to work with Bitwig on the same computer, which should contain the same code and libraries but I need to do some further testing (might take some time). Can't tell you how much I hate Macos...

That's cool that you can reproduce it, I was thinking it was going to be a unique problem.

Thanks for bothering with an OS that bothers you. To be fair, I know that Urs Heckman has stated that he wouldn't have gotten into plug in development if it wasn't for OSX, so it does produce some good. Their security madness is pretty crazy though, like they really believe the sky will fall in if a major virus ever gets released on OSX.

Hey Moss,

I'm trying to setup a friend's Komplete Kontrol MK2 after they were impressed with how well DrivenByMoss4Reaper worked with mine.

Only issue being is that after configuring the control surface, I cannot get the keys or transport to respond like they do on my own PC. Any thoughts on this?

Check if all Komplete Kontrol midi ports are deactivated in Reaper and the correct midi input is selected in the DrivenByMoss Kontrol configuration.

They're all deactivated in the MIDI Devices section.

Could I be a pain in the arse and ask which is the correct MIDI input? There's quite a few for the KK. :- )

When things go wrong give as much information as you can.
No one know which OS you're using, what kind of computer, if this is the first time that you've installed DrivenByMoss4Reaper etc. etc.

I don't know AndreIsidro? but I would bet it gives Möss a better idea of what might be going wrong?
This is amazing software when it works so it's worth investigating for sure.

Yes, you need at least Macos 10.12 Sierra.

Kontrol DAW -> used to communicate with the NI service
Kontrol EXT -> The external MIDI in-/output of the Kontrol
Kontrol -> use this one

Naming is different on the different OSs...

I've tried both the 'Midi 1.0' and 'OSC 1.20', and whilst the keys and transport works quite happily in MIDI mode with 'Komplete' selected, once an Instance is selected, the transport stops working.

This is on Windows 10 64 bit.

Good to hear chief. In that case, it would be great if the faders on the SL were locked to certain tracks. They currently follow Reaper's selected track, could we bank through them another way?

Also, concerning the bottom knobs, please consider options for another bank of volumes or the first 8 TCP parameters of the selected track.. (GetTCPFXParm??)

Thanks

(both requests are how Padre's Automap csurf worked - not by default, that's how I used it)

Use only the OSC the other one is experimental (and should not have been in the release). I tested on Windows but could not replicate a problem.
Can you give me the exact steps what you did? Did I get this right: you also have a Kontrol MkII and it works fine?

Hi Moss!

I had my friend swap over to OSC and the same problem still applies.

We create a track, arm the track and monitor it. Open Maschine, or Komplete Kontrol, but I'll get to that, as FX on the track.

Interestingly, the transport no longer functioning occurs within Maschine VST; using the KKMK2 with Maschine is the main selling point (hence all the buttons and two screens).

When using the KKMK2 with the Komplete Kontrol VST, the transport continues to function, which is what my experience with it was. I tried Maschine, but the same problem as his occurs.

However, when you have Maschine VST running and you press the Instance key on the KKMK2 and select it with the 4D encoder (press inwards), the transport stops functioning, but the rest of it continues to work just fine. Frustrating not being able to use the transport.

I noticed that you said you do not have Maschine so could not help another user. If you need to temporarily take the Maschine software for a spin then I can arrange this for you in private, hardware is not needed, you only need the KKMK2. :- ) Would love to buy you a few cold/hot ones if you can figure this out!

I had my friend swap over to OSC and the same problem still applies.

We create a track, arm the track and monitor it. Open Maschine, or Komplete Kontrol, but I'll get to that, as FX on the track.

Interestingly, the transport no longer functioning occurs within Maschine VST; using the KKMK2 with Maschine is the main selling point (hence all the buttons and two screens).

When using the KKMK2 with the Komplete Kontrol VST, the transport continues to function, which is what my experience with it was. I tried Maschine, but the same problem as his occurs.

However, when you have Maschine VST running and you press the Instance key on the KKMK2 and select it with the 4D encoder (press inwards), the transport stops functioning, but the rest of it continues to work just fine. Frustrating not being able to use the transport.

I noticed that you said you do not have Maschine so could not help another user. If you need to temporarily take the Maschine software for a spin then I can arrange this for you in private, hardware is not needed, you only need the KKMK2. :- ) Would love to buy you a few cold/hot ones if you can figure this out!
That's why it is always helpful to write in detail what you are doing :-)

So, the problem is the Maschine plugin. Since I meanwhile got a Maschine license I can tell to you that this is actually how Maschine works with the Kontrol MkII. This is explained in detail in the MkII manual in the Host section.

That you are in Maschine mode is indicated with the little keyboard icon in the upper right of the Maschine plugin UI. Strangely, you can only enable it by clickin on the icon but not disabling it (seems like a bug to me). To switch these modes on the Mk II: To enable press INSTANCE and then SELECT. To disable: only press INSTANCE and then switch back to MIXER.

Default Unsupported Midi, not enough memory

Hello Moss,

I have installed your Drivenbymoss on my laptop for use with reaper and my Beatstep (4.02). I have a 64 bit windows 10 laptop with I7 processors and 8gb of ram. Problem is that it doesn't work. I got this log:

The last part is when I turn a know on my beatstep.

So there is not enough memory? Do you know a solution? I hope you can help me.

Kind regards,

That totally misleading error message normally happens when the midi device is already opened by another application.
Check if you disabled all Beatstep MIDI devices in Reaper and also check if you have no other application running, which might have grabbed the device.

Hey moss!

So I finally managed to get this thing working without crashing but now I'm kinda lost. I know I'm being a pain in the ass, but what would you say is the best setup to make a Korg NanoKontrol 2 work? I've tried Mackie Control Universal, midi in and out set to NanoKontrol and profile set to Mackie MCU Pro. No luck The NanoKontrol2 doesn't respond.

Any ideas?

Try the generic flexi. See this video (it's for Bitwig but the use with Reaper is the same): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4DkBlhR09g

So I've tried it with the nanokontrol set to sonar (it's supposed to be the best setting to use with reaper) and set to CC mode. I have my preferences set to enable+control in the midi input and enable in the midi output. I've chosen DrivenbyMoss, selected Generic Flexi, clicked on configuration. Now I'm supposed to choose CC and move any key in the controller right? It's not working Like it doesn't detect that I'm moving the controller...

Uh yes, that's a bit weird: The midi ports are only opened when you close the dialog. So close it once and then reopen it again, then it should work.

It doesn't :S

I don't really want to take up more of your time and I'm pretty much about to throw my NanoKontrol2 out the window (this thing is beyond useless) but if you happen to have any other ideas I should try...

Thanks for the patience btw

Hello, in post #269 you said that beatstep is used by another program. That isn't the fact. Tried it on another computer and it also doesn't work

That did it! Thank you so much!

Out of curiosity what was the issue? more security conflicts?

I have a friend who did QA for Apple hardware and software for almost 20 years, in some small way telling him gets back to the QA team, maybe gets some movement there... you never know right?

That is the only explanation I know for that problem. Do you maybe have Chrome installed? See here: https://support.image-line.com/actio...gebase?ans=601

That is difficult to explain. The Apple USB API uses "interfaces" with a version number. Depending on the version number new functions are added. When you want to access the API interface you can specify an exact number (but don't have to). The latest XCode compiler now assumes always the latest one, which means it works only on Mojawe. See here for a longish discussion about the problem: https://github.com/libusb/libusb/issues/519
