What happened to DMXIS 1.6.9?

Post by randytheking » Sun Mar 15, 2020 12:07 am

I downloaded DMXIS 1.6.9 a few months ago. When I just checked to see if there was a newer release, the website only shows 1.6.3. Did 1.6.9 get recalled?

I DL'd 1.6.9 just a few days ago. Seems to be working.

I cant find 1.6.9 anywhere.
Every link seems broken.

ENTTEC were distributing 1.6.9 on their website for a while, but they pulled it following a reported issue with Ableton Live and the DMXIS plug-in. For the time being, ENTTEC have reverted to distributing 1.6.3.

1.7.0 will be available shortly. This fixes the 1.6.9 crash, and adds Art-Net output.

Do you have any idea when ENTTEC will be releasing 1.7.0?

I've been experiencing a lot more glitching (automation tracks defaulting to "unused" when reopening a file after saving it and lights aren't reacting in the way programmed when using 72 channels in unison) from the software when using automation in Logic since using a laptop with Catalina pre-installed. These issues aren't present when I use an older laptop with High Sierra.

There's nothing in DMXIS 1.7.0 to specifically address this. From your description, it feels more like an automation performance issue within Logic/Catalina, rather than a DMXIS specific issue.

Are you using DMXIS 1.6.9 on the Catalina machine? Does rolling back to DMXIS 1.6.3 fix the issue?

I've been using DMXIS 1.6.3 on both machines, I haven't downloaded 1.6.9.

Art-Net with DMXIS?... Does this mean the DMXIS hardware box will no longer be needed once 1.7.0 is released?

No, the box still needs to be connected while transmitting Art-Net. The box basically acts as a license dongle.
