@daniel_ Really great work!! Emergence is very effective at creating complex-sounding and evolving textures with surprisingly little effort. I hope enough people are supporting you so that this excellent effect will continue to see active development. Cheers!! :tu:

I just briefly tried out Emergence on my macPOS 10.14 Reaper 6 AU system. One comment about the GUI resizing: I selected 150% but then the GUI was too tall for my screen and I was not able to get to the top of GUI to adjust the size down. Not knowing how else to deal with this I had to find the Application Support folder and delete it and hope it would work. It did, reset back to 100%. It would be good to account for this use-case and have a UI element that will always be avalable in these situations.

Thanks for pointing this out, I think I can figure something out to avoid this.
(There is indeed a configuration file that stores this setting. Currently it is not used for anything else so it's okay to just delete it, but this might change with future updates)

Hey daniel_ your release is amazing but unfortunately my M1 with OSX 12.1 says that he can't open the AU: “Emergence.component” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information.

I have tried to allow in the security settings but doesn't work. hope you can help me :)

Read the txt file that comes with it - you have to do some stuff in terminal to clear it with MacOS security

Just updated the post with the same instructions, hopefully this will make it easier to find

Honestly I didn't want to deal with all the extra steps apple requires you to do in order to properly sign/notarize the plugin before getting some feedback.
If there is interest and support for the project then maybe I'll look into it to make things more user-friendly

Update: v0.3.1 released!

The new version comes with some cool new features and fixes some minor issues.

Here is the full list:
  • Modulation:
    • Add button to toggle between unipolar / bipolar modulation
    • Add buttons for triggering and clearing randomization manually
    • Make macro names editable and save custom names in project/presets
  • UI:
    • Limit GUI size to fit on display when resized
  • macOS:
    • Fix randomizer when running under rosetta and frequency is set to 0.0
If you find a bug
Please report it here or send me a PM. Thanks!

Plans for the next update:
  • Multi out: each stream having a dedicated stereo output opening up possibilities to further process the output of each individual grain stream through your custom signal chains.
  • A properly signed and notarized installer for macOS. This will make the install/update process much more user friendly.
Thank you to everyone who decided to support the project so far either on itch or Patreon.
