Two minor issues with the (Micron) 2.2 editor.

Postby XanderKok » Sun Jun 02, 2013 2:10 am

First of all, it's 4:14 in the a.m. here (I'm from the Netherlands) and I just bought the program 11 hours or so ago (thanks for the quick response!) and I've been at it ever since (who needs sleep right :shock: )

Issues in bold:


Anyway, I'm running Windows 8 (in desktop mode) and it nagged me that it's not a trusted APP
; No it's not. It's a program :lol: :D (although, an Android APP or even an Apple iPad APP (I'd buy an iPad straight away) would be the holy grail for the crippled interface on the Micron- unless Alesis opensource it's firmware so we can hack the hardware and solder some more pots and buttons)

Second, it crashes a lot with Windows 8, I have to use compatibility mode (Windows 7) to fix that.


Minor things again.

However, thank you for this piece of software, I should have bought it 6 months ago when I got my NEW in box Micron (with a strange firmware 1.11); This instrument makes much more sense now, and the sounds I get are weird, stupid, wonderful, mesmerizing, grand.. I've learned more from these hours with the software then 6 months fiddeling with the really bad hardware interface and the manual- It's like a different instrument now. :mrgreen:

This is a pet peeve of mine: an "app" is a software application, a program.

It's not some proper noun that Apple invented last decade and then Microsoft and Google began using to jump on the bandwagon. The abbreviated form of application, "app," goes back at least to the '80s. While a lot of ignorant people these days use it exclusively with its new connotation meaning "mobile applications" or "very small programs written in crippled managed code," its real origins are as a generalized short form of "application," and the warez scene has always used "apps" or "appz" to mean just that.

Anyway, that first issue is all on MS. I use Windows 7 still and have disabled similar checks on it. I trust myself enough with what I decide to execute not to need that particular layer of security.
