Can somebody help clear a couple of things up for me?



  • Hello Hise forum,

    I only just found out about HISE (it was recommended over KSP and I gotta say, so far, I'm sold) and I'm trying to get up to speed as fast as I can. Unfortunately, there are a few things in the tutorials that just don't follow IRL for me and it's driving me insane. If someone wiser than me can help me out by telling me what, where, or why a couple thing are happening, I'd be ever so grateful.

    1. The interface preview does't show the toolbar or keyboard when I do as the tutorial suggests. Is this something that needs to be addressed? Did I miss something? neglect to click something?

    2. I work on mac, and "right click"ing doesn't seem to work anywhere that counts. (on mac you do control + click. I can make my mouse do actual "right click"s - which I have been doing - but it's a nuisance)

    3. I can't seem to delete anything I create in the interface. At least in an intuitive sense. Seems like I need to manually remove it from the UI JSON anytime I mistakenly add a knob or something.

    4. When I do add UI elements, it gives me no dialog popup. So every element I add needs to be given an ID by hand in the JSON. Additionally, when I add an element, the script doesn't update at all (as the tutorial states it should) and I'm forced to to a bunch of manual editing of the JSON and the oninit callback. It makes it really difficult to develop a rhythm when you need to constantly flip between files and compile this and that in order to straighten things up.

    5. There is no Parameter Connection Wizard/Connect to Module Parameter option as the tutorial suggests. It's actually a major hole in the tutorials. What the GIF shows, and what's available to me to do are two different things. The only thing in the context menu that's located where the GIF shows to click are an option to "discard script changes" and "save script changes to UI data". Neither of which opens a menu to assign params.

    I've searched high and low for these and others everywhere. There's NOTHING in the tools menu or edit script editor menus (that I can find) and I'm starting to go insane. PLEASE HELP!!

    Thank you, whoever you are...

    v 1.5.0
    build version: 650



  • @cuttybang Hi, HISE v1.5 is the old version and I recommend you build HISE yourself from source so you can always be on the most up to date (bug fixed) version. If you've not compiled a project from source before then you're in for a little learning experience but if you plan to use HISE then you will eventually need to set up a compile environment anyway in order to be able to export VSTs. The instructions for building HISE on your OS are on the HISE github page, there is also a video tutorial here demonstrating how to compile HISE on Windows.



  • Ah ha. I knew there was something I wasn't doing.
    Ok, then build from source. Fair enough.
    I've already installed the compiler and it's plugins (SDKs, IPP), so does that mean I need to reinstall those packages(reset PATH etc.) once I rebuild?



  • @cuttybang No I think you should be good with what you have

    Those elements have been removed by default so you could customize your own interface. A quick search on the forum has a post about how to add these back in.



  • Content.makeFrontInterface(600, 500); 
    const var Keyboard = Content.addFloatingTile("Keyboard", 0, 426); 
    // [JSON Keyboard] 
    Content.setPropertiesFromJSON("Keyboard", { "width": 600, "height": 72 });
     // [/JSON Keyboard] 
    Keyboard.setContentData({"Type": "Keyboard"});


  • Excellent. Thank you. I appreciate your help.

    While I have your ear, mind if I ask you how to go about setting mono mode in the sampler? Like a "max-voices" option a la Kontakt? I seem to be stuck in poly.



  • @dustbro
    Thank you! That's huge.

    As you can tell, I'm new to the party.



  • @cuttybang Sampler settings >> voice settings might do it.
