What would be a viable OSX version? OSX Standalone (.app)? or do VST2,VST3,AU work for you? if so, please check https://kzantow.github.io/surge/ for the newest build - ignore the dropbox + slack drops thrown all over the KVR forums.planetearth wrote: ↑Mon Dec 31, 2018 2:54 pmI haven't stumbled across any bugs, but I know that when this was originally made "open source" a few months ago, people were talking about fixing some things, making the GUI bigger, and maybe making an OSX version. Since then, I haven't heard much about it, so I'm not sure how much was done. A quick check on the Github page shows many outstanding bugs, with some as recent as earlier this week.
About making the GUI bigger: baconpaul was working on adding zoom and SVG so the zoomed versions don't become pixelated (instead responsive) , and this was making some progress, and might still do, anyone can pick up the baton on that and take it further. it was working on AudioUnit, but not 100% compatible with Logic's resizing methods. but for this to be a proper opensource project, we need zoom to ALSO work on Windows,Linux, VST2,VST3 and AudioUnit - but there might be some progress with a Linux build in the future. Windows seems to be the one lacking the most focus, maybe we need to find someone who would be interested in building and fixing Windows-specific bugs.
The GitHub page will continue showing outstanding bugs, some as recent as today, as long as there are bugs left to fix - some of them are major, some are quick to fix. That's part and parcel of a project like this being picked up, dusted off and people trying to make it work. Bugreports are awesome! Especially if they're informative and not "yeah so uh stuf sux" like the regular forum posts around the internets, YKWIM.
the thing is that when guys like z.prime or aMUSEd come in and do some dropbox/slack drops, then that's on them - and the files, as you mentioned, are static and stuck in timeplanetearth wrote: ↑Mon Dec 31, 2018 2:54 pmI was only asking because if the installer and associated files were put into a Dropbox folder, they're no longer really available to anyone who was using Github to keep up with the synth. That's why I was asking if this was going to be a separate fork of the project. Now that Vember Audio's site is gone, the Github repository is going to become more difficult to find. And if this "NKS-ready" version (for want of a better way to describe it, since no one assigned it a version number) is only available via Dropbox--and only if you find the link here on KVR--it could be more difficult for others to find out what's going on.
i've tried to chase them and suggest that they link to https://kzantow.github.io/surge/ - but with little or no success thus far. as long as everyone is just doing their own thang and just throwing whatever-version out there, people will stay confused.
the best is to actually report the bugs to the github repo and chase them. and to be verbose about them.
there will be a changes-log, but as long as at least z.prime+aMUSEd seem to (in two separate threads) be posting their "hold my beer, I'll build this for you" solutions, there will be much confusion.
I think it'd be cool if the NKS thing was integrated into the GitHub, but I have no idea how to build, create or test NKS, I don't have NKS gear. So this would require either assistance from aMUSEd or someone else who is github-savvy to come in and go "this is how you create a commandline builder of NKS files".
