Hello! Is the current version of Maxwell compatible with LaserDock?
At the moment Maxwell is purely an abstract generator - there is no audio coming out of Maxwell. What you may be hearing are resonant frequencies of your galvos.
No, not at this time. Maxwell is mainly for creating swirly / geometric style images.
The Windows x64 version has been released. Make sure to install all files & drivers included with LaserDock first.
Are you asking about "simultaneous" instances or total installed instances?
Maxwell currently can only run a single instance per computer - however, you can install on multiple computers. You can also install Mac & PC versions once purchased.
Ok - thanks for the report... Do you know what resolution your screen is at fullscreen?
That's certainly a strange error - have not had this reported previously. I need to do some digging around.
Can you send me an email to johnny.lightspeed at gmail.com and we can work through the issue there?
This is the behavior you would get if Maxwell is unable to connect to the LaserDock. Most likely this is a driver install issue.
Wickedlasers has posted some driver install/fix instructions here:
Pasted here :
Download this http://zadig.akeo.ie/
- Connect laserdock
- Open zadig
- Choose Laserdock Interface 0
- Choose libusbK as driver
- Click install.
- Repeat 3-5 for interface 1 and 2
Dang... This is weird for sure. Lets move to email - send me a note : johnny.lightspeed at gmail.com. If you could take a screen shot of what the Laser section looks like when you choose LaserDock that might be helpful.
I think I may have misstyped the email address:
Can you try lightspeedjohnny at gmail.com
Also, Wicked Lasers has released a new Windows driver with the latest build of their app. Can you try that as well:
On the Mac, everything is simply just plug-n-play. There is no additional software you have to install other than Maxwell.
But just to be clear, here are the steps:
- Connect LaserDock to a USB port on your Mac
- Start Maxwell
- Choose "LaserDock" from the DAC TYPE dropdown in the Laser section of Maxwell (lower right corner).
Here is a screenshot of what the Laser section should look like:
