Free AUv3 ports of Mutable Instruments eurorack modules

Hi,

Apologies if you've seen me post about this elsewhere, figured I should add a thread here as it seems like the most popular iOS audio forum.

I've been porting Mutable Instruments modules to AUv3. Right now I've got Plaits functioning as a 8-voice polyphonic synth with mod matrix, and Elements working.

My plan is to get Rings and Clouds working as well and do an initial release by end of June. It will be free and open source since most of the heavy lifting was open source code to begin with.

There's a bunch of demos on my Instagram:


Cheers,
Tom

    Nice one @burns_audio :)

    Thanks in advance for your work on these!

    Been following since reading about it on Elektronauts. Excited to see MI ports on iOS! Some previous discussion on this other thread, but it’s cool that you posted an official thread on the ports :)

    https://forum.audiob.us/discussion/33042/mutable-instruments-au-s-inbound

    Very cool that these will be free and open source, a lot of kids out there that don’t have the option to buy apps, awesome to think that any kid with an iPad will have access to these kinds of instruments and fx :)

    Hi Tom,

    I think you should charge a minimal fee, 99 cents or 1,99 euro. Up to you what you do with any return.

    Regardless thanks for this, I use plaits and it will be great to have a version on iOS.

    Thank you for making this happen. Also cool it will be open source like the original code, I might use some parts for the app (depending on cpu usage) I am making.

    Why? Charging for it takes away from the open source roots and also means any kid that has lame or poor parents won’t be able to use these... free ports seems like exactly what Emilie (the original coder of these) would like to happen and the kind of thing they envisaged when releasing the code. Not everything is about money.....thank god!

    I don’t believe the original coder has issue with such things like you. Let’s not take over the post with arguments.

    I agree with you
    Open source or not..
    People should be rewarded for their efforts..
    And converting this to ios/auv3 seems a lot of effort to me..
    So a small fee is at its place..

    I didn’t say Emilie had issue. Just that people charging $ for iOS ports probably isn’t something that they’d find inspiring and what they would have hoped for.

    If the dude porting these chose to charge for them, I’d have said ‘fair enough’. It’s up to them. But for someone else to actually try to persuade them to charge, that’s just strange and feels like it must have other motives behind it. Suggesting a Patreon account or whatever is much more apt in this case..

    A lot of musicians that have iPads don’t buy music apps. But they’ll grab these because they’re free. And then maybe get hooked in to the platform...then maybe eventually physical Eurorack and throw some $ at MI...
    a lot of kids don’t have ability to buy apps, but they’ll be able to get these. Top quality instruments in the hands of any kid in the world that has an iPad. And for some reason you suggest that you’d rather this wasn’t the case? Just really odd...

    Yeah, each to their own. I was just countering it with mine because someone trying to persuade someone else to monetise something that they had already chosen to make free didn’t sit well with me.

  • Looking forward to these! Will they be universal? Thanks!

    Clouds/Rings/Elements on an iPhone SE would be amazing...I’d possibly buy a 2nd used SE and Velcro it to my pedal board...

    Fantastic!
    I really welcome the idea to keep the UI minimal and release the app for free.
    Also, thank you for adding the logic to make a module like Plaits usable as an AUv3 instrument!
    Please tell us how we can buy you a drink :smile:

  • Hoping these have midi learn :)

    about reward for hard work...
    there are always options like a page with
    "DONATE money via paypal" button or Patreon or others...

    Yep this feels like the right option on this one :) I’d gladly drop some $ via those methods.

    I think charging a small fee doesn‘t make much sense economically for such a project. He is not making this for the money, and a fee would just give him a much smaller number of users. Thus, less return on investment.

    Cant things be their own reward these days though? Does ‘worthwhile’ always = ‘cash’?

    Like, if I could code, I would have done this myself ages ago and the fact that I could use multiple instance MI on my iPad would have been payment enough. Let alone the buzz of being part of a chain of progression that has put awesome tools in the hands of kids etc all around the world...Apparently ‘apps don’t sell’ and ‘there’s no market’ in any case, so I’d rather have 100 kids using something I made than have £100...or even £1000+.

    Vcvrack, Organelle etc — all free Mi ports...

    I think with Mi code inevitably appearing in more and more software/hardware we really need to remember just how cool it is that Emilie made these ports a possibility to begin with and if anyone’s donating $ to devs and doesn’t own any MI hardware, maybe try to throw Emilie a few $ as well ;)

    Like I already said the original developer has no issue with the code being used. My opinion is people who work hard and create things should get paid. Donations can help for sure. So I have a different view than you which I thought was already agreed. Please stop now.

    ‘Please stop now’. Damn, that’s such a rude and provocative way to speak to someone...

    I replied to a separate post made AFTER ‘we agreed’. A post where you implied that ‘paid’ must always = ‘cash’. Which is basically totally against the whole ethos of open source as I understand it. At least the way that the cool people see it.....
    There are other motives for many people to want to do things like this. Things like this aren’t about money for a lot of people. Paid in karma, good vibes, contributing toward advancement and having new tools at their own disposal.

    You’re clearly a ‘money’ guy and alongside the unnecessarily rude ‘please stop now’ and the fact you have an app in the works that you might want to use MI code in, it’s pretty easy to figure you and your angles out...

    Now you please stop now...
