good or non detrimental?
I'd call it "good" when a product works as expected, thereby making it a moot point whether or not a company can provide support. YMMV.
we will agree to disagree.
It is indeed of course moot whilst your product is still working as expected....unless one day it stops.
But to have a developer go MIA a few months after you buy a product can never be a good thing imho.
I do think that is a reasonable point of view.
All things considered, I just wish Corey well and hope he's okay.
I agree. IIRC, it seemed like something in his personal life had stopped any forward progress on the FaderCtrl.
Maybe I'm just repeating something that's already been mentioned here, but I would try totally deleting the software and any files associated with the FaderCtrl app (my AppCleaner app says there are 6) and try re-installing it from scratch.
Hey all. Since this project appears to be dead, I wonder if someone can post a link to whatever the last version of the software was? I have Version 0.0.1 and the only parameter that comes up is for midi channel #...
That's the only parameter that I can alter with my version of the software (which is fine for me).
You may be able to learn more from this site (I'm guess some version of this board is used).
I am using the FaderCtrl. I have develoed software for the FaderCtrl. (still in beta version...)
Could you post a link to Dropbox so we can try the software? Thanks for doing this
Was just looking for exactly this! Has anyone got it and using it? Would love to get a copy if so. Thanks!
+1 I'm eager to see how this works!
This looked like a very nice fader controller. Are they no longer in production?
The maker "Cackland" hasn't been in this forum since May of last year, so it's fairly safe to say that they are no longer in production. Bummer...
I ended up ordering a refurbished Behringer X-Touch Compact from eBay. It seems the Compact is better for CC control than the standard X-Touch. I am not a Behringer fan but their partnership with Midas at least yields a nice control surface.
I was sent the 'limited' software version in 2017. Does anyone know if the 'full' software was completed?
I snooped around in the app package contents and found this interface mock-up.
It seems like some nice features were planned - curve and range controls, presets for different sample library developers, four slots for saving settings.
Slightly nicer on the eyes than the current version
One feature I'd really like is to be able to send out multiple CCs on the same fader simultaneously.
Currently I have 'Cinesamples vibrato' (CC2) and 'Spitfire vibrato' (CC21) on separate faders. It would be nice to combine them and free up a fader. CS libraries aren't affected by CC21, and SF libraries aren't affected by CC2, so there would be no conflict.
I've never seen this and honestly I really don't understand enough about what's involved programming-wise that would complete Faderctrl making it totally functional for users.
My question I will throw out there for everyone but also specifically @ Will Bedford (being a successful developer).
I suspect there must be a good programmer affiliated with one of the developers or a community member here that frequents VI-C that could probably develop the fully baked software that would complete Faderctrl as originally intended.
As a collective group if the people who purchased these(20-30-40? I'm guessing)each pooled a little $$ shouldn't we be able to hire someone to finish this?
Please forgive me if my lack of understanding of what's actually required to do this but is this thought totally unrealistic?
Those of you needing a cc remapper of some kind, check out the freely available "transmidifier" which should do any CC remapping you need before hitting the DAW:
I missed the window on getting a FaderCtrl also, and would definitely buy one if they came up again.
Can't the cc's be changed within Kontakt for each of those libraries? i.e. change spitfire to CC02?
