Hey, can you specify what exactly helped you fix this? The system preferences thing? I saw your other reply too about it not working but didn't have time to reply to it yet.

Have you updated Nimble Kick to 1.0.2 yet?

Also, try this: go to "System Preferences > Security and Privacy > General" immediately after you get that error, you might see a button there to allow Nimble Kick to run.

(In any case, even though it should work in most situations, I'm going to make sure it works 100% on MacOS 10.15 soon.. Apple made it quite a headache unfortunately.)

Oh that is strange. I'm going to investigate a bit more, thanks!

No news yet, still trying to figure it out. Does Misstortion 2 work for you in your version of Logic?

Thanks for the report, I'll take a look. Does it work after restarting Logic?

Can I send you an email on the address you purchased Nimble Kick on? I have a few things I'd like to try.

If you're on Discord or anything like that it'd be even faster to communicate (Miss#8888) or Instagram DM's (@nimble_tools).

Which version of MacOS is this? Logic tends to be very unstable when it comes to AU plugins, especially on older versions.. :(

Hey, check out 1.0.2, which includes a new looping feature!

No, you can't do it in FL with its slide notes either, since those are purely for FL-only plugins. You can however automate the pitchbend though. In Ableton, you can click this little button in the midi editor to reveal the pitchbend interface:

You can then "draw" the pitchbends there, similar to automations:

Ohh cool! Looking forward to seeing that! :D

It should be: "~/Library/Application Support/NimbleKick.settings". Ps: 1.0.1 is supposed to fix this issue - is that the version you're using?

It works for me on Logic X. Can you check if it shows up in Logic's Plugin Manager? And what it says under "Compatibility", if it shows up there?

Hmm, version 9 is pretty old. Are you running a 32 bit version of Logic by any chance? Nimble Kick is 64 bit only!

I might've fixed this issue for the next upcoming update, but since I can't reproduce it myself I can't say for certain.

Oh, so it happens for you if you have multiple instances in a project?

Yes, both features are on the roadmap already, actually! Multiple output channels + solo-ing the punch or tail are features I really wanna have myself, too.

There's definitely some good ideas there, thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks for the report, I'll try this out soon! In the meantime, you can delete this file to reset the settings: "C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\NimbleKick\NimbleKick.settings"

Yes, you can!

Thanks for the feedback. You'll be happy to know that you can already change the filter's Q by holding the Ctrl key while dragging on the points (just like in Fabfilter Pro Q)! :)

I still have second thoughts about the entire Kick FX section actually. I'm not sure how useful it actually is. I'd love some more feedback though. I might replace it with a more detailed/advanced distortion section, actually..

I'm glad you like it! :D

Thanks for the suggestion!

The voices knob controls how many kick notes can be played at the same time.

1.0.1 is out now and should fix this issue! You can find the full changelog here:

You mean you just have to open the interface once and then it's okay? I'll take a look, thanks!

Edit: Hmm, I can't reproduce this with Ableton 10.1.1 myself. Do you have this every time? Which version of Ableton are you using?

Ahhh I see. Yeah, that's been on the todo list as well by using multiple midi channels, but I have to think about that a bit more. I might do it at some point, because I do like the idea a lot, but it would add a lot of complexity to the UI that a beginning user might not understand immediately, if you know what I mean. So that requires a bit of design work. But it's on the list! :D

The algorithm artifacts in Time Machine was actually a bug, that has been fixed already for the next patch (1.0.1), coming sometime this week (probably tomorrow).

The punch and tail are already separated in terms of pitching though. (As long as you have checked "Separate tail".) I suppose you mean other things like volume & equalizing?

Thank you for the feedback! I'm glad you're enjoying it! <3

Hmm, okay. So there was a bug with the algorithm! I've fixed it for 1.0.1. It sounds a lot better now.

Thanks for the report, today I fixed a bunch of UI performance issues for 1.0.1, which I should hopefully have released sometime later this week!

Can you tell me which folders are shown in the plugin manager of FL?

Thanks for the suggestions!

I like the idea of solo punch/tail as well, I've added it to my list. If you need a temporary workaround for now, perhaps you can use the ADSR to kinda get the same effect. (Won't be exactly what you want though, of course.)

Well, the root note knob is limited to an octave range, so I suggest you just put it up an octave (should be F2) instead of trying to go as low as possible.

I'm glad you solved it! :D
