PostPosted: Sat Jan 27, 2018 8:36 am    Post subject: Success El Capitan (10.11.6) + Wine 1.8.3 + editor Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Nord Modular editor + Macbook Core 2 Duo 2,53gHz + El Capitan working here...

It took me a lot of time to find a solid combination, so i want to share it - maybe it can help someone else.

I tried two different midi interfaces (Midisport 2x2 and ESI MidiMate EX), Windows 7 and Windows XP under Parallels, Wine in different versions: HQ 3.0, Wine 2.01, and the one which comes with Winebottler, which is Wine 1.8.3.

I also tried running the editor w administrator privileges in the different systems, legacy w95/w98/xp compatibility modes, etc... The results were variate, but in all cases inestable under Paallels (rebooting windows, etc)... Wine versions were even worse.

*** BUT ****
Ultimately - and surprisingly - I found a combination that seems to work on Wine (+ ESI Midimate EX, although i suspect it will work too for the Midisport 2x2). This was it:

- Download and install brew, Quark etc. as recommended by the OP.
- Download Winebottler.
- Install in the app folder the Wine version (1.8.3) that came with the Winebottler.
- Apply the patch of the OP on terminal (i don't know if it was necessary but i did it).
- Open Wine 1.8.3 - you will see a cup of wine icon on the task bar.
- Click that icon, it opens the Wine menu, go to Configuration
- Open the tab "Applications"
- Add the Nord Modular Editor v3.03 application, and select it to run in Windows 98 emulation mode. Close the Wine configuration.
- Execute the Nord Modular Editor through Wine: again Wine menu --> File Manager --> find the editor > double click to execute.

Since i did this the editor has been working well without losing the connection while browsing patches, altering them etc, so it looks pretty good (specially compared with the former tries...).

Having a Micromodular AND a Modular G1, i want to create patches on the Micro when i travel, and dump them to the Modular when i am in my studio - hence the old Windows laptop solution was not attractive at all for me... i am happy now that i can use my mac to do all the process.

Hi everyone, you are reading a message wrote by Manfred.
I'm trying to install this editor through the instructions on this page https://gist.github.com/arirusso/a08fe73538c7843e80ea
Did everything until step 3, but now I have to:

edit /Applications/Nord\ Modular/nm

Contents of script:

#!/bin/sh
wine /Applications/Nord\ Modular/Nord\ Modular\ Editor\ v3.03.exe
Then run this line to make the script executable:

chmod +x /Applications/Nord\ Modular/nm

I'm not familiar with this type of stuff at all, and I'm rather clueless here. Can anyone tell me what I should do, like, in detail? Would be so extremely helpful! Thanks + greetz
Manfred

Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me... I can download it, install it, but if I open the application nothing happens, I don't get the editor to open.

Oh I see,
well unfortunately it's just a well conceived wine port... so if that doesn't work, I suspect your wine install isn't for the same reasons. Which OS are you on ?

Thank you for the reply, appreciate it!
My wine install actually did work, I'm just clueless about what I have to do next, I just don't understand the instructions. I'm on High Sierra (10.13.6).

if the wine install worked, the stage engine should (as it is a wine install)
Don't know if anyone else has got it working on an OSX that recent.
It may be worth trying to email the stage engine chaps. They're friendly in my experience

I will try that! I have an older macbook which does run the application, but it loses connection with my Nord all the time despite trying multiple of the suggested midi interfaces. Would just be nice to be able to edit on my main computer, but that is no sinecure it turns out. Thank you very much for your help!

fwiw, the stage engine works extremely well on my 10.10 mac
I do get very occasional dropouts /lose connections but only every few hours and with several of the patches running usually.

Keep updating the forum if you can.. a working version on a later OSX than mine would inform my decision on whether to upgrade or not,
good luck !
