already done … a new b10 is available.
mother.pd now contains a pd META, which contain VERSION, this is checked , currently for 1.2.
if the expected version is not found, then the mother.pd is renamed to mother.pd.review
(note: all current customised mother.pd will ‘fail’ this test, which is correct since there is now a patch loaded messages sent from PD back to mother exec, since beta 7)
Im hoping then users will notice there ‘extended’ functionality is missing, and then go check what is wrong.
… and, organelle will resort to a working version (/root/mother.pd)
Im sure this can be improved on, but seems like a good starting place.
(I’ll push it, so feel free to tweak it, or suggest improvements here)
sounds like a nice idea… how about the vumeter being replace with a signal and peak indicator only, this would take up less room, leaving as you say space for 'indicator icons’
indicator icons ideas:
a) warning (exclamation mark) - such as mother override, or some potential error
b) incoming midi clock/ableton link (sync indicator)
c) incoming midi notes/cc
d) beat flash (bpm indicator)
if we did this, I think it would then be useful to allow mother.pd to revert back to a level meter, which is useful for initial gain staging… we could potentially do this off a ‘menu option’, allowing the whole screen to temporarily be taken over solely for looking at gain levels (so we could report things like peak values)
(I tend to find when im playing with patches, I look at input /output levels first… set them, then after that I’m not really that interested in them, unless i change the input signal … could be useful if the levels screen had a global input gain knob)
