Opusmodus on a Windows Machine (using VMWare)

Recommended Posts

I've been working on running OSX on a windows machine using VMWare; works really well! Simple procedure if you follow these steps: https://www.pcsteps.com/2157-mac-os-x-virtual-machine-vmware-player/

 

Wouldn't recommend this setup for OSX applications that really need high performance graphics (using Quartz for example) but for using Opusmodus on a Windows machine this could be a nice option for those not able/wanting to invest in Apple hardware.

 

If you install rtpMIDI on the windows machine you'll also be able to run your audio software under Windows and connect Opusmodus using MIDI over a virtual network connection.

 

Big hug,

My first impression is yes it is. The eLicenser that Vienna software needs doesn't work under VMWare. But since Vienna can work with any MIDI input device I created a setup using MIDI over ethernet. VMWare's network settings can be set to Bridged so that the host and the slave have their own IP addresses on the same network. Works perfectly :-)

I tried it today, with my 5 year-old PC, windows 7 64 bit, 4GB Ram with Intel Dual Core (before the I series).

In this modest setup, I could run Sonar 8.5 with rewire with Finale 25 (Windows) together with Opusmodus

 in VMware. You can share a folder to export your XML to immediately open in the DAW sequencer with rewire Finale.

 

Great Stuff !

 

Opusmodus runs flawlessly !

Very happy with this great software !

Thank you guys !

Best,

Dear Friends,

 

I´m using Opusmodus with a virtual machine and trying to send the midi out

my Daw at windows 7. Please, can you give me a little help ?

Every thing is ok, I just need the syntax on Opusmodus  def-score to send

 the midi signal to the network midi, instead of the internal midi.

Please, can you help, me ?

Best,

Julio

evaluate this, and check out the midi-destinations-function -> shows you the ports

 

(midi-destinations)
Quote

The MIDI-DESTINATION returns a list of names and numbers of your port setup.

(midi-destinations)
=> ((0 . "Bus 1") (1 . "Bus 2") (2 . "Bus 3")
    (3 . "Bus 4") (4 . "Session 1") (5 . "vPacarana"))

 

Example:

(right :omn rhand
       :port 0
       :channel 1
       :sound 'gm
       :program 0)

 

or with port name:

 

(right :omn rhand
       :port "Bus 1"
       :channel 1
       :sound 'gm
       :program 0)

It worked !

But was too much to my old computer.

A lot of latency !

Time to buy a new machine, for a good reason.

Best !
