building vinylcontrol~

May 27 2010 | 6:00 am

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.

Thanks alot Volker, I really appreciate it. Any way you could please build it again for 64 bit? Or maybe provide instructions? Thanks alot man, great work.

hm, this is really old, and i was never sure it worked properly, as i have no equipment to test it.
also the lib it uses (xwax) has moved on quite a bit, so i don’t see the point in updating the original sources to 64 bit.

this morning i had a quick go on trying something out with current xwax (1.5) and managed to get it going somehow.
but i don’t really know, how the system is working and, as i said, can’t test it myself properly.
so i guess, this is still very unfinished, but if you want to try it out nonetheless, you can find it here:

Thank you so much! The 32 bit has been working great for me, and has been a huge help in a few projects. I really appreciate this

Does it work on Max 7? Thanks!

i don’t know, as i don’t have max7 – wouldn’t know why it shouldn’t work, though.
but it’s easy enough, so why don’t you try it yourself?

(i tried it before in Max7 and it loaded up fine without any error messages, but have no timecode vinyl setup for me to verify fully… Sabina or anyone else with timecode vinyl could try it out fully in that way and report back here, it’d be a great help to the community :)
