Linux support
« on: August 06, 2018, 03:46:27 pm »
Hey everyone here, newcomer to this forum and recent owner of a drumbrute. Mostly satisfied with it so far except for one major PITA: you can't configure the midi part without some proprietary software that only runs on Windows and MacOS - bad luck, I'm a Linux user and obviously Arturia don't give a sh... about Linux users. This really pisses me off, to the point I'm considering sending this thing back despite it's other qualities.

The first thing that pisses me off is of course having to use software to configure a piece of hardware - one of the reasons I'm going hardware is to not depend on having a PC up and running. But then I should have to buy Windows, install it along my Linux distro, and stop my session, launch Windows, quit Windows and relaunch my session just to change the midi channel or something ? I spent the same amount of good money as anyone else on this gear, I deserve to be treated the same.  >:(
