MacOS 10.14 (Mojave) and serialosc


#21

it is autostarting. I did not install the FTDI driver, but just to double check is there an uninstaller for the FTDI driver? I might have migrated from an old system.


#22

Hey y’all — I’ve got a setup that consists of monomeSerial, a (I think) 2nd or 3rd gen (walnut / aluminum) 128, and Reason. MonomeSerial just connects to Reason and I get a 128 button MIDI input. That’s literally all I use it for. I don’t even bother with getting the lights to work.

I recently installed Mojave, and I’m wondering if there’s a compatible version of monomeSerial floating around out there somewhere. Any help would be much appreciated. I think I tried installing SerialOSC a few years back, and I could never get it to work, but if that’s the direction to go, then any help there would be appreciated too.

Hope I can get my setup working again!

Some discussion going on here may help:


#24

monomeserial won’t work. you’ll need to use serialosc, and https://github.com/monome-community/collected/tree/master/monomebridge


#25

Thanks! I’ve got monomebridge working, but it’s not able to see my 128. I’ve tried disconnecting / connecting, and I’ve checked that serialoscd, serialosc-device, and serialosc-detector are all running.

Any idea what else I could try out or should do?


#26

make sure to uninstall the ftdi driver (as noted on https://monome.org/docs/setup)


#27

Ok, nuked the FTDI, and restarted, SerialOSC is running, and I still can’t see the 128.

I noticed in another thread that some people were having issues with SerialOSC and Mojave… @tehn , think they’re related?


#28

Hey @tehn, I’ve got serialOSC working, but Reason still isn’t picking up the MIDI. I’ll check on the Reason forums from here, but thanks for the help!!!


#29

No, but you can run the following commands:

sudo rm -r /Library/Extensions/FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext
sudo pkgutil --forget com.FTDI.driver.FTDIUSBSerialDriver

Then reboot (and this is important!)

monomebridge doesn’t have midi built-in, and now that you’re asking for that i realize you don’t even need monomebridge.

instead

download max
get the monome package
run grid-midi.maxpat which is included

and you’re good


#31

Righteous, got it working! Thank you so much!!!

I originally posted in the High Sierra thread that my grayscale 128 is not working. It is still not working in Mojave.

When I execute ls -lha /Library/Extensions/ | grep 'FTDI' I only see this FTDI file:

drwxr-xr-x@ 3 root wheel 96B Dec 16 2015 FTDIKext.kext

When I execute: ls /System/Library/Extensions | grep FTDI:

AppleUSBFTDI.kext

Executing serialoscd results in -bash: serialoscd: command not found. However ps -ef | grep 'osc' shows that serialoscd and serialosc-detector is running.

501   585     1   0  9:27AM ??         0:00.01 /Library/Application Support/Monome/serialosc.bundle/Contents/MacOS/serialoscd
501   654   585   0  9:27AM ??         0:00.01 /Library/Application Support/Monome/serialosc.bundle/Contents/MacOS/serialosc-detector

The grayscale 128 is connected to my computer:

When I had High Sierra I tried many combinations of the FTDI driver and am not sure if I have properly cleared all the results of those attempts. My computer is a 2015 Macbook Pro Retina, and I have Mojave 10.14.1. Does anyone have any advice?

Thank you.
