MultiControl v.0.6.2

MultiControl_062 MultiControl is by far the most popular software application I have created, as can be seen in the web traffic here on my site, and also on the download site at the University of Oslo where the app resides. This is a tiny application that passes on data from a human interface device (mouse, game controller) through either OSC or MIDI. When I first created it back in 2004, there were not so many other options. Today, however, users would typically find more features in an application like Osculator or Steim’s Junxion. Still, MultiControl is downloaded hundreds of times per month, which should indicate that some people think it is interesting and useful.

Unfortunately, I do not have much time for development these days, so I will probably never get around to implement all the cool and exciting features I once wished for in MultiControl. But since it is my most popular application, I feel bad about also abandoning the whole thing. So I will try to keep it updated for the latest operating systems.

I just made a fresh build of the application using the latest version of Max. It works fine here on my Mountain Lion system, and I would imagine that it should also work on Lion (but perhaps not previous versions). Since I have received some feedback about problems with opening zip-files, I have now created a dmg-file instead. To avoid problems with broken links in the future, I will just point to the folder in which the latest version can be found.

Have fun, and let me know if you experience any problems.

  1. Kia Ora Alexarje!

    Your program MultiControl is absolutely amazing, and is working wonders for my homemade hardware controllers, I just wanted to thank you greatly for creating such a helpful program!

    HOWEVER, I cannot seem to open any files I save in multicontrol, I do plan on using it live for performances soon and I need to be able to open saved templates in MultiControl! 😀

    I am running version 6.0.2 at the moment on OSX Lion, but I cannot seem to open saved files…

    If it helps the MAX is telling me, patcher file (file name).json missing patcher when i open a saved file. I have tried the same with XML to no avail…

    If you could let me know please If i am doing something wrong, or if there is a way to fix it, i would be SUPER greatful.

    Thanks for your time, and hope to hear back!


  2. Same problems as Simple Mixture, can’t save/open files,
    Max says the same .json missing patcher.

    Any help with possible solutions greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for your work on this!
