Plans

The table below specifies the more or less concrete short-to-mid-term plans:

Target date Application Version Editions Features
Calendar
2017 MIDI Tools 2.5.0 Windows SysEx messages via MIDI Thru
2017 BC Manager 3.2.0 Windows/macOS Print element labels in color
2018 BC Manager 4.0.0 Windows/macOS BCL bypass

Needless to say, all this is heavily subject to change.

The table below specifies the general plans for all applications, concerning several important features and macOS/Linux editions (all applications are already available for Windows):

Application Modern features Manual macOS edition Linux edition

GT-3 Manager Available Maybe No No
MIDI Tools Available Available Available Maybe
ProMix 01 Manager Available Maybe No No
R-8 Manager Available Maybe No No
XG Manager Available Maybe No No

The applications for whom the 'Modern features' column states 'Developing' are behind the times in several respects, such as:

  • MIDI I/O handling.
  • They are still 'pre-mountainutilities.eu', thus link to the old Mountain Utilities web site; it's about time these links were updated...
  • They don't provide advanced setup/desktop management yet.
