    Small little update:

    After trying a bunch of solutions to bring this to windows i've settled on something I'm comfortable with and I am making progress.. Unfortunately cross-compatibility means remaking everything from scratch. The MacOS part is already redone but windows still needs some stuff sorted but it's close I think.

    I can't do it personally since i made it so I am biased, it's up to the admins.

    Looking forward to testing it.

    Hope you're able to get the Jam thing working too because it's really annoying that it switches focus every time you select a pattern.

    Thank you for this fix!

    for some reason, it works for standalone but doesn't work for the VST3 plugin.

    I get "The VST3 plug-in could not be found"

    At what stage? When you press "Patch!" ?

    Does NIPatcher successfully copy the VST3 to the desktop/NIPatcher?

    If you go to the Info tab does NIPatcher show a check ✅ next to your VST3 plug?

    Thank you for your response.

    Yes, it was showing check ✅ next to your VST3 plug.

    I re-installed the Komplete Kontorl and tried again, it worked.

    Thank YOU very much for this fix!!! size of the window was bothering me so much)))

    You are an absolute don for this. Komplete Kontrol was basically useless to me - this is a game changer. Thank you.

    Awesome, How can I make a VS3/2 large size as default on Ableton? Thank you.

    When Maschine launches it does not seem to use the 'Small', 'Medium' or 'Large' presets, I haven't found where it stores pixel size data on launch to be able to modify it with NIPatcher, yet.

    But you dont need that anyway, I would just open MAS-Plug, set the size preset (small/medium/large) then you can drag-and-drop the device tittle bar into your User Library, Ableton saves all the Plugin States into a preset that you can then re-use, like so:

    I just learned about the existence of this patcher. Will it work with a MKII, a S49MKII and a Jam in Maschine Standalone ?

    The Jam Focus feature would be VERY useful for me.

    Thanks for your time and dedication

    edit: i coulnd't wait to test it. It works fine, i finally have the jam pattern focus as i always wanted it to be. You drastically lowered the chance of me making mistakes during a live performance. Thank you for that.

    Yes, HW doesn't matter except of course for the HW specific patches.

    The Jam focus patch should not break anything for other HW - I think, but can't be sure as I don't own one to test so let me know.

    I sort of gave up on Windows to be honest... I have it in a working state but it's more of a proof of concept atm, learning 2 platforms at the same time is too much for my humble knowledge lvl and patience. I also feel a bit conflicted about spending my time fixing things NI could fix in 2 minutes when I have nothing to gain from it, so I am not sure If i'll keep updating the app or just kill it.

    If theres any devs out there familiar with flutter I'd happily upload and hand over what I have for Windows, someone with a bit of experience could prob finish it in a day, for me it would take a very long time, i can't justify the effort atm.
