does anybody know what happened to the OP? so strange to see a successful product abandoned.
it's weird, he just kind of .....
I emailed him a while back with a small issue, but never heard back. I got it fixed, but a shame he`s not around anymore. Unless he`s hand delivering all the units that were ordered...
My FaderCtrl software app stop working a long time ago. When I open the app all 8 of the midi cc boxes appear but nothing happens when I drag them up or down; they can't be edited any more. FaderCtrl works as designed in my DAW however I just have to manually assign each fader for each instrument (instead of already having things set globally via the app).
I did report this issue to Cackland via email. His recommendation was that I scrap the entire app, redownload, and reinstall (which I tried multiple times). It still doesn't work and he didn't have any further info for me at that time.
Anybody else having this problem or know of a possible fix?
If someone who has time and is industrious wants to look further to resolve or modify their FaderCtrl... I may have a path for them to follow. In troubleshooting my setup with Cory he had me download bit of software from here and once you take a look some lights will turn on... possibly. https://www.arduino.cc
What is the software used for this? I haven't used it for awhile and now have forgotten how to program in the CC's.
It’s called FADERCNTRL
just in case there are some settings you didn't wipe before re-installing you might want to install the software another computer and see, if it works there. if it doesn't it's probably some state saved inside the faderCTRL which causes the issue.
So is this product not available anymore...?
No - the dev seems to have ceased all communication. I don't know why.
I am so glad he raised the price. A few months ago (January actually) I was ready to buy two, but then he informed me the price had been raised by I think $45 each......which then became over my budget. (I had budgeted $500+ shipping stateside, but it ended up $652 for the two). So I didn't order them.
Someone was looking out for me (and I am an atheist )
He was having small orders built during the process so it may be that the manufacturing costs increased in the event that the amount of units in that order were too small. Possible at least.
Not sure if this was in response to me.
Sure, he can raise the price if he needed to. For me it was not what I budgeted for. So I passed.
Turns out to be a blessing.
No it wasn't. I have it and it works really well, software is so easy I could teach my dog to set it up.
I've had no trouble with mine either. Set up the CCs when I first got it - never had to touch the software since.
Are you not seeing the issues reported in this thread with the hardware with zero support? You may be in the lucky camp. I may not have been.
It can't possibly be a good thing to buy hardware that becomes unsupported a few months later that very year with the company goes Mia.
The software is so easy, I did teach my dog to do it!
Seriously, this is as easy as it gets and the hardware is like "budda"!
Mine works perfectly.
Hardware is great here. Software no longer functions.
True, you may have gotten one of the problem units; and (for the time being at least, by all indications) there would have been no support if you had.
But it can possibly be a good thing to buy hardware that becomes unsupported—if your hardware never needs support. In fact, I'd say the best possible outcome is to buy hardware that never needs support. It appears that most of these units have fallen into that category, so far. Granted, it's still early yet.
