building vinylcontrol~

Has anyone had any luck building the vinyl control external from karhumusic in osx.

Im not very familiar with the osx terminal and im having trouble building flext. Specifically I dont understand the syntax used in editing the paths in the config-mac-max-gcc.txt file.

If anyone can offer any assistance it would be greatly appreciated.

I’m in the same boat as you. I just figured out how to use subversion to get the flext files (i think), but I still have a lot to learn before I’ll have a working external.

I’m surprised no one has uploaded a compiled version for anything other than linux yet.

It sounds like you’re farther along than I am, but if I get it figured out, I’ll post what I learn.

The lack of this tool may be related to the use of Ms. Pinky in the Max world.

a search for “vinylcontrol” would have taken you here:

i mailed the original author the max and pd binaries (osx) at that time, but obviously he didn’t update the site.
and since i have no access to the right gear to test it properly or develop it further, i don’t want to host the externals myself.

so, if anyone wants to give the osx version a try, here you go.
