QLC+ 4.8.4 release

Post by Massimo Callegari » Sun Feb 08, 2015 12:17 pm

The fourth maintenance release of QLC+ is here. It brings several fixes and improvements to the existing functionalities, plus a couple of new things.
There is a new plugin called 'loopback' for internal routing of signals within QLC+.
We've had the contribution of new RGB Matrix scripts and a MIDI template, as well as another lot of new fixtures. Thanks guys for that !

In the tutorials page there is a new tutorial that explains how to connect the excellent Mixxx to QLC+.Thanks to Markus Baertschi.

It would be nice to have more of them for different DAWs. I've seen people in the forum using Ableton and Sonar, maybe they can share their experience with the community ?

**Two additional notes**:

1) The OSX bundle was missing the new loopback plugin. I've fixed it and uploaded a new file called QLC+_4.8.4a.dmg

2) The introduction of the ArtNet loopback interface, shifted all the other interfaces down by 1. So if your projects are using ArtNet input lines, you need to update them and re-select the correct input line (e.g. if you were using line 2, now it is line 3)

Sorry about these last minute changes.

Nice work indeed!

I miss the Ball RGB script from Tim. Maybe I'm the only one who has played with it?

Maybe for the next release, is there an possibility for more universes?

Keep up the good work!

You can add as many universes as you need (use the big red + button in the input/output tab)

More universes ? You can already have an arbitrary number of them. Maybe you're missing the "add universe" button in the Input/Output panel ?

Balls script: sorry, totally missed it. I haven't been following the forum so much lately. I'll review and add it for the next release.
