Installation of CTRLR SYNTH EDITOR

For Info: the project website ‘ctrlr.org’ ist currently in a reconstruction/migration phase and not maintained. Therefore all software packages are now available at v-combo website
Recommended CTRLR versions are: Windows: 5.4.29 ; OSX: 5.3.198; Linux: 5.4.16. Do not use newer versions as they are instable

To help with setup, eventually consult Raymonds V-COMBO EDITOR MANUAL. It covers older editor versions but is still valid for many things.

The SYNTH EDITOR requires the CTRLR platform to operate. There are several ways of running EDITOR-CTRLR:

  1. MS-Windows: Standalone SYNTH EDITOR
    Windows users can run the standalone. It’s an integrated package of CTRLR platform plus EDITOR in one executable. As the standalone has some minor issues for ‘configuration’ it’s recommended that Windows users also use the 2nd method.
    Download and run the Windows standalone (*.exe-file)
  2. MS-Windows: CTRLR-platform + SYNTH EDITOR panel plugin + (recommended for Windows, mandatory for OSX and Linux)
    The permanent ‘install’ of the CTRLR platform is recommended over the Windows-standalone
    1. download and install CTRLR .exe-installer available at MS-Win subfolder
    2. download the panel-plugin-file (*.bpanelz)
    3. start CTRLR, push ‘ctrl menu show’ button in the left vertical menu, select ctrlr-menu ‘File > open’ and load the panel-plugin-file
  3. OSX / MacOS: : CTRLR-platform + SYNTH EDITOR panel plugin
    Installation for OSX/MacOS:
    1. download and install CTRLR .dmg-installer available at OSX/Mac subfolder
    2. download the panel-plugin-file (*.bpanelz)
    3. start CTRLR, push ‘ctrl menu show’ button in the left vertical menu, select ctrlr-menu ‘File > open’ and load the panel-plugin-file
  4. Linux: : CTRLR-platform + SYNTH EDITOR panel plugin
    CTRLR Editor on linux IS NOT TESTED:
    1. download and install CTRLR .dmg-installer available at linux subfolder
    2. download the panel-plugin-file (*.bpanelz)
    3. start CTRLR, push ‘ctrl menu show’ button in the left vertical menu, select ctrlr-menu ‘File > open’ and load the panel-plugin-file
  5. VST
    SYNTH EDITOR can run as a VST2 plugin for your DAW. You must generate the VST out of CTRLR on our own. Instructions are given in the inline-help of the panel
!! WARNING UPON UPDATING THE PANEL!! BEFORE LOADING A NEW PANEL INTO CTRLR, CLOSE THE OLD PANEL.   Otherwise you a) risk to block the midi ports (MS Windows) and b) suffer from a bulk popup of +100 ‘info’ and file browser windows: if this happens, wait until it stops, close all popups, then close all panel instances in CTRLR (it’s a CTRLR bug with yet no solution)

Usage of CTRLR EDITOR

SYNTH EDITOR handling is comparable to the Handling of ‘V-SYNTH’ in the V-Combo EDITOR panel.

Bugreports and ideas/wishes/change requests etc are highly appreciated. Please use the youtube vids for communication. Eventually use the VR09/730 facebook group or EDITOR youtube channel for requests.
