id avoid this topic for now, its really ‘hacking’ until C&G put out a new image, so its possible for all users to use it
would you like the red pill, or blue pill?
UpgradeOS 3.1 installs the organelle 3.1 OS, and gives you all features you want
it allows you to launch patches and configure the organelle hardware and software.
are you sure? blue pill is still there, just go back up , and don’t go beyond this point
OS/firmware - unfortunately, these terms are being used technically inaccurately, which over time can potentially confuse things.
as an end-user, most will consider the menu you use to select patches, configure the organelle, as the OS/firmware, and hence we refer to the updates as OS updates
but technically this is wrong…
there is no ‘firmware’, there is only an operating system (linux) and applications (e.g. mother/pd), the menu you see is just an application (mother)
so upgradeOS3.1 is actually just version 3.1 of the mother application, plus a bunch of other changes (e.g. operating system config changes, mother.pd)
why is this done,?
well we all want end users to see and use the Organelle, as a musical instrument, not a computer … so the OS is just an ‘implementation’.
this is not uncommon, and we are going to see becoming much more common as time marches on e.g. i think the MPC Live also runs Linux underneath, but users just see it as an MPC live
sorry, you took the red pill, no way to un-see this now
