Blackhole No Midi

August 30, 2018 - 08:17 am

Hi. I just went through my bi annual updater check on all my plugs and now I have a second blackhole component (AU Mac) 

called Blackhole No Midi.

Can someone tell me what the hell this thing is supposed to be and what the hell kind of purpose something that says no midi is supposed to entail?  lol

In a more recent build of Blackhole, MIDI control of the Ribbon and Footswitches was added. In the AU, this required changing the subtype of Audio Unit to a 'Music Effect' from an 'Effect'. Some DAWs ID the plugin using a combination of fields, which include the subtype. As such, an AU 'Blackhole No Midi' is now installed alongside the regular AU, for backwards session compatibility.

I have no idea what that means but as long as it's a legit function and not some weirdness on my computers part, I'm ok.  smiley
