Latest Chrome Breaks MIDI Support

Posted 9 CommentsPosted in Stompblock


Chrome version 66 has apparently broken the Web MIDI support that the Stompblock client relies on.

We are looking into workarounds for this issue, but if you depend on the interface, you might want to hold off updating Chrome for the time being.

I’ll post any further information as soon as it is available. Thank you in advance for your patience!

** UPDATE **
The latest version of Opera is still working. Although it uses Chromium under the hood, it’s still at version 65 and isn’t suffering from the issues that Chrome 66 has. Installing Opera is a viable workaround in the short term until we sort out what’s going on with Chrome, though if they release a newer version of Opera it’ll likely have the same issue.

** UPDATE2 **
A workaround is now in place and the client is working in Chrome 66 as of version 5.3

Restomp version 1.5 is now available for download.
This version includes a correction to the Pan filter, and also adds new Delay and Phaser filters.

If you’re on macOS, the app should alert you of the update the next time you launch it. Windows users should download and install the update manually.

You can now import ZenEdit mappings into the STOMPBLOCK client

In preparation for the upcoming release of Restomp (the card editor for the STOMPBLOCK), the client application now supports importing ZenEdit map files.

While you’re working in Restomp and typing names for your samples, it’s building a ZenEdit map file behind the scenes. You can then later import this file into ZenEdit (and now the SB client too) so that the proper instrument names are displayed.

This feature was released in version 4.8 of the STOMPBLOCK client and is available right now. You’ll find the controls for managing map files on the main Settings tab.

Those of you who have purchased John Emrich’s incredible Articulations #1 Card for the Zendrum STOMPBLOCK will be pleased to know that the editor can now display his updated instrument names.

No more having to reconcile the note numbers against the SB defaults!

This 3.0 version of the editor has also been overhauled at should be slightly speedier than its predecessor.

Happy trigger thump`n!
