Thx for upgrading! Did you grab your initial user key? (just a yes/no question, i mean don't post any user key here)

I do not remember seeing anything looking like a user key: as soon as I clicked 'buy' it went to paypal. paypal had a problem though as it would not go back to the web site. I then got the paypal confirmation email, so I just closed the browser.

Please check your inbox (or spam folder), your personal user key should be there now.

Thanks, I got it. I wanted to wait until I tried it to reply, but did not have the time to do so yet.

It's not possible to type characters into the license box of version 8. That makes it in this case impossible to enter the license key since copy/paste does not work in this setup. It would be so nice to have an option to read the license from a text file.

Why does copy and paste not work?
Ctrl-C for copying and Ctrl-V for pasting always works.
Oops, just noticed you are on Linux. Seems it is Ctrl-Shift-V there.

To insert your user key copy it from the email (best including the dashed lines) then paste it into the Insert User Key dialog. There also is a paste button on the user key dialog.

Again, copy/paste does not work on this system with this application.

Maybe a picture or two...

MUX 7 : It's possible to type characters :

MUX 8 : It's impossible to type characters (and copied characters in the system's buffer are not recognized hence the PASTE button is not activated - deadlock on this system)

Again, reading the license from a file could be an alternative.

Why ? My guess is that it depends on the framework/tools/UI kit used in Windows development. For instance it works with Rob Papen synths such as Blue2, Predator2, Go2. It works with the approx. 104 Melda Production plugins for copying/pasting presets. So it depends. The exact technical software reason I haven't investigated, having many other things to do.

I develop software on Linux for 15 years now. Brings bread and butter to the table, buys houses and cars, sends kids to universities. And yes, it includes knowing how to copy and paste, incredible ! :)

Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X and Ctrl-V works in Linux, and there's also the native way in which you can copy/paste without touching the keyboard.

Typing characters indeed is not supported in the M8 user key dialog. That's intended because user keys are long text blocks and typing it would be time consuiming and high chance on errors. You must use copy-paste plain unformatted text. Make sure you copy the user key text on the clipboard. To ensure yourself it's properly copied on the clipboard paste it again in Notepad or a similar simple plain text editor. Note that Linux is an unsupported platform so i can't advice on how to properly copy-paste on Linux.

PS: If copy-paste doesn't work on your Linux machine, try pasting the user key in a plain text file and save it, then drop that text file on the user key dialog, that should work too as that dialog accepts a text file drop.

I tried by dropping a text file onto the license dialog box: unfortunately it does not work.

Yes, Linux is not a supported platform. And I got MUX 7 on the basis of:

1) It works well on Linux
2) It offers great capabilities of sound production

Unfortunately with version 8 the first point might have to be crossed out, and that's a drastic change from version 7.

Perhaps (and I'm just shooting in the dark) a file chooser/dialog to be able to select a text file with the licence key? Under Wine it's possible to place the license key file under the emulated file system. I know linux is not supported, but it seems like a decent way to keep some form of work around.

I just tried to bridge MUX with https://github.com/psycha0s/airwave but as it turns out, airwave is horribly out of date. I spent three hours sifting through legacy SDKs, error logs, and more just for the symbol tables to not get built properly (it's missing SDK paths that exist but weren't linked and dear god I don't want to delve into the CMAKE tree to fix that).

I'm assuming then Mevla that you're not running Bitwig natively, but via Wine so as to be able to use windows VST on linux (I've seen you on the melda forums of couple of times). Bitwig Linux doesn't recognize dll's, hence my attempt at airwave and why I'm assuming you're running it under Wine.

I've used Mulab on linux in the past with Wine + WineAsio routed through JACK. It wasn't stellar, but it got the job done. MUX however is in a different technology stack, thus making it not as easy to port without the host also being under Wine.

I'll try to help the best I can, but I'm caught in between exams which limits my time.

Then tell me what is this?
