ANNOUNCE: Major Malfunction v1.5

July 13, 2007 | 12:54 am

Please pardon the brief self-promotion:

Major Malfunction, my Mac OS X Pluggo-based
slice/dicer/mangler/glitcher/FSU plugin specifically tailored for
Ableton Live, is now updated to version 1.5.

It has many new features and improvements, including new distortion,
vocoder, filter, etc..

More info at http://www.defectiverecords.com/majormalfunction – demo
version available.

And many thanks to all those who have helped me along the way, and/or
provided their externals! (Peter Elsea, Jasch, and Bill Orcutt).

Thanks,
Dan

I’m quite the pluggo pro. I’d like a crack at making it work for windowz.

Thanks, but I actually already have a fully functional Windows
version of the plug, but the graphic performance especially is not
good – way too much flickering and redrawing. I’m fairly sure that
it’s because I have several graphic elements that overlay each other,
and Windows just doesn’t like that in Max, compared to OS X.

So – I’m going to have to re-engineer the plug quite a bit to get it
to a point where I’m comfortable putting it out there for Win….

i like the plugin.. have you heard of anyone having success using it with logic? I haven’t recieved my packaged pluggo yet so i do have pluggo installed atm, but i’d def like to use this. Not sure why it wouldn’t work with other hosts.

the trick to getting it to not flicker so much is to disable write combining. go to control panel > display > settings tab > advanced button > troubleshoot tab > uncheck write combining.

I found this little tweek significantly changed the way gui functions in Max operated under windows. I mean, its like night and day for my computer.

Many people have tried it in Logic (and other hosts), and many of
those have found it quite usable for their needs. It performs poorly
(timing tightness-wise) if you loop a section over and over in Logic,
but if you just are running the transport straight without looping,
it works better. Also the plugin doesn’t get initialized the first
time you load it up, until you start the audio running the first (a
common Logic problem with other plugins).

Also, you don’t need the full Pluggo to run the plugin – just
download the Major Malfunction Demo installer that includes the free
Pluggo Runtime, and you’ll be all set. And when you get your full
version of Pluggo, you can safely just install that over the Pluggo
Runtime.

Best,
Dan

Thanks for the suggestion – although the behavior seems different,
there still is a lot of flickering and redrawing, that is not fun to
look at.

I’ve basically got to rework things so that I do not layer graphics
that are dynamic, and that move over each other during the plugins
operation…
