Online Settings and Browsers

Postby abhunkin » Thu Jan 18, 2018 10:52 pm

Apparently only Chrome and Opera browsers currently have MIDI capability that allow for the very nice Online Settings routine to work.

Unfortunately, though the attached MC-8 is recognized by Chrome and Opera (not by other browsers such as IE11 and Firefox), and uploading to the device work fine, downloading from the MC-8 does not.

Is this a bug, or is there an available fix? (I assume a download from MC-8 should show its values in the 8 on-screen boxes.)

Hi, Arthur!
Glad to see you here!
Yes, Web-MIDI is now only supported by Google Chrome. Our online CC's settings work well on Mac OS. It doesn't work that well at Windows yet but we are working on it and soon it will be fixed.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I look forward to a fully operational Online Settings for Windows.

On a related issue: I work extensively with MIDI controllers in the Csound language, and many Csounders use the Linux platform. I am told that if devices are USB class-compliant for Windows and Mac, they are also compliant for Linux. (I assume this to be true for the MC-8 too.)

My question: Does it follow that Online Settings should work in the Linux environment as well, when Google Chrome (available for all platforms) is the browser? Or is this not known at present?

Incidentally, the Opera browser also apparently includes Web-MIDI, and currently gives me the same results with Online Settings as does Chrome (in Windows 10).

Any idea when the MC-8 Online Settings for Windows will be working fully?

Now online settings fully work on Mac OS X 10.4 or later, Windows XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8/ 10, Linux 2.5 kernel or later.
