Shove 1.4 In Progress...Really

It’s been a while since my last update. My day job has been keeping me busy along with family life.

I haven’t forgotten about Shove. 1.4 is still in the works and progress is being made.

Shove 1.4 In Progress

I wanted to let everyone know that I'm really really close to the 1.4 release.  It is focused on usability with saved settings, On button changes, and bug fixes.

More to come later...

Shove 1.3 Released

New features:

  • Control Shove with buttons on the Push.
    • The performance modes, keys and scales can be cycled through using the block of 4 arrow keys and the page buttons.  See the User Guide for details.
    • There is also a Panic button on the Push now.  The Delete button will stop any stuck MIDI notes.
  • Linear mode
    • This mode is a chromatic mode where none of the pads play the same note, unlike in the Push 2 Chromatic mode where notes are duplicated across the grid columns.

Improvements:

  • Drum pad mode now uses the Octave Up/Down buttons to shift the grid and not the Page buttons.

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed a major encoder glitch.
  • The key would reset to C when changing octaves using the Octave Up/Down buttons.  Thanks to Craig for finding this.

Known Issues:

Now that you can change Shove settings via the Push it might be more common to encounter stuck notes.  To avoid this, don't hold any notes down while switching Shove settings like octaves or keys.  This stinks and I can hopefully find a fix soon.

Shove 1.3

I just wanted to let everybody know that I'm wrapping up Shove 1.3.  This should be completed soon.

New feature:

  • Linear mode
    • I've added a new mode I've dubbed Linear mode.  This was a suggestion by Sergio because of the way he uses drum software with the samples mapped out chromatically.  This mode is a chromatic mode where none of the pads play the same note, unlike in the Push 2 Chromatic mode where notes are duplicated across the grid columns.  I'll update the docs with more details when 1.3 is done.

Bug fix:

  • The key would reset to C when changing octaves using the Octave Up/Down buttons.  Thanks to Craig for finding this.

Shove 1.2 Update

Work on Shove 1.2 is underway.  The big feature in 1.2 will be MIDI CCs from knobs and all other buttons.  There might be a couple more features but I don't want to promise them and not deliver.

Thanks to all that have reached out with suggestions and questions!

Shove 1.1 Update Part Deux

Shove 1.1 is testing is done.  I'm working on packaging up the app for Mac and Windows and documentation, then it will be released into the wild.  If you've purchased Shove you'll get an email with download information.

Some bad news - the On button remains and settings aren't saved yet.  Will get this in 1.2 hopefully.  Good news - all the other features mentioned in the first update are there.

This should've been done sooner but...well...this book dedication from "An Introduction To Algebraic Topology" sums up my situation too.
