I’m pretty sure I reinstalled it correctly, I can try a uninstall/reboot/reinstall/reboot cycle just to make sure the windows services are cleared out.
Good news though - I’m connecting directly to the arc via serial in TouchDesigner, and have already converted all the relevant api calls. The latency is incredibly low (especially using a 120fps patch) and the sensitivity is absolutely out of this world! Haven’t had any drops (other than crashes of connection when sending invalid commands accidentally during testing, a quick unplug and reconnect resets everything just fine). I’ll probably stick to serial for my custom applications, though I’m hoping the win10 issues for serialosc get solved for using other people’s Max patches like Capstarc. Thanks for looking into this!
FYI on my new laptop, plugging in my grid 256 VB and arc4 did not trigger an automatic install of the ftdi driver (iirc it did in the past on another system).
Q: which driver is suggested?
I suggest to link to the ftdi driver package again in monome docs
Actually it didn’t (for some reason) that’s why I am writing here .
I had to install twice manually. Before that, device manager said that there weren’t any drivers installed for the devices and a search thru windows update didn’t yield any results.
After the first installation device manager showed two usb devices, but still unknowns as well. A second install directing search to the downloaded ftdi drivers succeeded and it now works fine.
