Bpatcher needed in Mira


    Dec 18 2013 | 4:05 pm
    Hello, I don't know if there is another place to ask for new features, but I cannot use the wonderful Mira technology without the support for BPatcher in my project.
    Nesting the Mira.Frame inside them is not enough for me...
    Is it planned in a near future ?
    Thank you !

      I can tell you it's right at the top of my to-do list, if that's any comfort. Believe me, I want bpatcher as well. Nesting mira.frame inside them is not enough for me either.

      This is good news. Thanks Sam!
    • Dec 20 2013 | 2:11 pm
      I'm glad to hear that Sam, I'll be patient!
      What do you think also of the idea of a free(or cheap) runtime version of Mira for IOS for the user who would get my Standalone version of my actual patch...
      Thank, and tell me, what is the banana output sound :) ?

      Just wondering if bpatcher support will be making its way to Mira anytime soon? I could really do with it!
    • Apr 16 2014 | 5:22 pm
      Oh, you know. One of these days. iPhone support is probably next on the docket, but honestly there are so many fish frying all over the place over here that it's hard to say for sure when anything will be ready.
      Hope that's not too annoying. Again, personally bpatcher would be a big win for me as well.

      To be fair your on it like a car bonnet. In your own time pal. Waveform~ would be don too but I keep reading it's not that valued as an object. Personally I don't make a single patch that doesn't use it. Your YouTube videos are massively appreciated too.

      Bump +10
      Just started looking at Mira as a possible replacement for my current approach (Lemur + OSC communicating with Max). It seems absolutely wonderful based on my initial experiments. Unfortunately, most of my UI items live deep inside bpatchers (often nested) which are often then grouped inside yet more bpatchers.
      Mira would have to be able to see various subsets of my top level view.
      Is this something that's coming soon or do I need to stick with Lemur?

      I have to say I'm really very impressed with Mira. I did a workaround and just made send/receive connections to the underlying UI controls and just made a new collection of controls and put a mira.frame over them. Even though Lemur is a very nice tool, if one already uses Max, then Mira is a much more convenient solution.

      Another vote for bpatcher! Mira's handy because it lets you build very custom interface components - and often you want to have those apply to multiple channels. Bpatcher would make it much easier since we could edit a component in one place, rather than for every channel.

      I just got Mira and bpatchers were the first thing I noticed that was missing.
    • Feb 23 2015 | 11:01 am
      another BPatcher ++ please
    • Nov 20 2015 | 5:08 pm
      I know software updating is difficult and I don't want to be unkind. I paid $50 for Mira and it is high time for an update. I would certainly pay for that too. The last promise I see was 2013. Please!!!
    • Nov 20 2015 | 5:10 pm
      PS. I used Mira successfully on a project in 2014. Bought an iPad specifically because Mira was available. Now into another major project for summer 2016 and I really need all of the promised features and more. The ideal would be that Mira mirrors all of the features of Max.

      Well it's 2017, about three years later and there's still no bpathcher support. And not even support for some *really* basic items like text buttons. I love Max and cycling74 but after dropping $10 and god knows what on an iPad, I expected a more professional product. Really disappointed here, is there any chance at all for an update or are MIRA users destined to be stuck with an unfinished product?
    • Mar 10 2017 | 5:09 pm
      @JEFF, take a look at Miraweb, a mostly open source project that hopefully provides the possibility for the community to make all sorts of UI elements in a browser to control Max. Read more here: https://cycling74.com/articles/content-you-need-miraweb/

      I'll offer another vote of confidence for miraweb. It's pretty amazing, to be honest. (and this is coming from someone who still dreams of bpatchers too!)
    • Mar 11 2017 | 3:57 am
      @Ben thanks for the tip, miraweb is pretty good in terms of platform support, but still bafflingly lacking in basic tools like textbutton and bpatcher. I guess I'll either wait for an update or fork the git project myself ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    • Mar 11 2017 | 4:04 am
      @JEFF Yeah, we all want bpatcher, including me! But, bpatcher poses some difficult issues to overcome as it involves traversing patcher hierarchy and navigating a bunch of other not-so-easy to deal with components.
      YMMV, but live.text is in Miraweb.
      Best, -Ben

      Another vote for bpatcher support. 7 years now?
    • Jun 01 2020 | 10:06 pm
      +1 for bpatcher support!
    • Jan 24 2021 | 11:01 am
      haha. 2021. No BpM. The top of that 'to-do' list...!
    • Feb 03 2021 | 12:48 pm
      top of 'to-do' list, lol
      it really would be beneficial for a stupid amount of reason. I appreciate the work that goes into developing anything. but 7/8 years of waiting needs to come to an end. because people want to use Mira, not go to other sources where it is another long winded affair & may not work fully to how you want
      so please, update. I've had Mira since the very beginning & cant use it, because 'top of the list', doesn't seem to be 'top of the list'

      I also bought the app around 2013 and adapted some of my patches and workflow to work with Mira on my iPad. I think that the whole point of the app is to control max right away. If you need to create special interface patches to interact with it, the whole sense of the immediacy is lost. I know that coding in max requires time and its far away from the consumer apps for IOS.
      A lot of effort has been given to create nice Vizzie and Beap modules in the past years, all of them are Bparchers for a good reason right? I would love to hear someone from Cycling74 honestly saying: well we tried but it’s not possible and it’s never going to be. That way I could stop visiting this post every year since the last seven years :)

      wholeheartedly agree with you Pagarreton. we want word of what is happening
      its that long in the tooth, its practically a sabre tooth tiger & feels just as extinct
    • Mar 18 2021 | 5:51 am
      its been over a month. can we please get a word from the higher ups on what is happening. even if you are going to do bugger all & not do anything with MIRA anymore. because for 4 years, there has been no cycling74 person that has answered since. this not only brings doubt to the situation, but just is not good in general
      so please, gives us an answer, whether bad or good. i dont care at this point, i/we just want an answer
      p.s. yes, i know COVID-19 has brought some stand still to businesses. but we have all been dealing with this for over a year now, so that doesnt really mean much, since as said, we have all been dealing with it

      +1 for bpatcher support. :)
