Hello Graham,
good news...and a good chance to train patience and savour anticipation...especially of the new reverb.

I'm just about ready to upload a couple of alpha versions of a new quartet. One uses the standard soundfonts and comes in at about 190MB. The Morton version is about 690MB. Both use a new Puppy base model (X-Precise1.1) which uses XFCE/Thunar so is much more "windows user" friendly.

I'll post some links when I can get them uploaded to dropbox.
Cheers
Graham

These are ALPHA versions. YMMV

Hi Graham

I will be interested to give these a try.

As a side note, have you tried booting to Linux on a Windows 8 default operating system? Windows 8 on my new HP notebook deploys a boot protection system. I have not found any Bios settings that will allow the system to boot from a CD or USB as I was used to with my XP system.

The only way I can get a Linux distro to boot, is to have Windows 8 running then go to a special functions section and tell it to re-boot using external media.

Has anyone else experienced this?
Has anyone found a more direct way to boot to Linux through Windows 8?

Regards
Rick

Hi Graham,

I ran the mtn-Version on a VISTA System: the appearence on the screen is outstanding and it will play one of the included Midi-Files in a perfect sound.

But there are first observations, which I will try reproduce with my next start:
the 216 surface won´t execute any further click command except "F4 -Alt close". After this procedure the 216 can´t be started again.

Rgds and thanks,
Hartmut

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. :(

Miditzer will lock up if you try to stop the MIDI player in the middle of playing. Nothing can be done about that as there is a code incompatibility between WINE and the old embedded version of FluidSynth which controls the player.

If it is locking up in normal use, I can't reproduce that and would need more detail.
Cheers
Graham

Yes, this is one of the features which I suspected to be the reason for the total stop.
I will continue to locate the other areas under suspicion.
