Yes, good idea, Magix is a very versatile machine, and the page system is great for small demos, we have to define a gear or two, one bmx with a basic gear and another one with more machines and more cpu usage. Peer machine don't use many cpu...
Snowglobe Scale Walker has 16 pages, very cool to use with Magix.
2021 was without Buzz, 2022 will be with my good old Buzz.

I could not use Magic yet, because I could not find out how to add an "event", as the menu entry is empty here, and I can not select this menu, because it disappears when mouse overing / selecting it. Scale Walker I did not test yet, not sure if this will work in buze 0.8.9 in wine. Other than this my suggestions would be for machine candidates:
- Oomek Aggressor (bass, lead)
- anything (pads, chords) (FSM Infector maybe)
- ErsKick ... for drums
- one delay machine
- one reverb machine

All machines can be used as often as you want, but always same machines. Plus of course any peer machines, which should be the idea and topic of this "magic page project". I just want to open such a page, and it should immediately work, without any extra troubles, for getting the idea / concept of that particular page. It should never be about certain sound combinations. This would be another topic. Instead it should be something like: How can we use magic with other peer machines creatively for certain goals, in most minimal form (meaning using as few machines as possible). Later users can make as big examples as they want, but this should not be part of this page project, as this will bring only additional trouble. If anything does not work, from my side, the fun is lost again. But yeah, I want to learn magic and any peer machine which works in buze 0.8.9 in wine.

And yes, renaming magic to magix is cool as well!

Sorry to hear that. I don't have a linux machine to test on and I'm not sure how I would even go about debugging it. :(

I made a template that has one of each event type in it. If the file menu works you could load the template and set it as the default Page, then you could at least copy/paste/duplicate anything you need.

edit: The main edit menu will let you add Events if you have one or more Steps selected. Of course you might have the same problem with that menu too but it might work.

Little update, just a few fixes...
IXix wrote: Mon Jan 07, 2019 10:35 pm 2022.01.26 IX Magic 1.16a x86,
IX Magic 1.16a x64
+ Fixed x64 memory corruption issues.
+ Fixed saving song data when an instance of Magic has been deleted.
+ Fixed handling of sharps and flats in Peer Event values.
+ Fixed broken note-offs in Peer Event values.
+ Improved behaviour when Event accumulator text is changed during playback (try to avoid resetting counters where possible.)
+ Machine version 1.16a, file version 14
I had to make a fairly significant change to a core component (list management stuff) in order to fix some memory corruption issues I was experiencing on x64. It seems to be working as intended but there's always the chance I might have overlooked something, so keep an eye out for any newly odd behaviour and let me know if you hit any problems. No changes to file format so fully compatible with current song files.

Enjoy! :D

It's so great that these ultra-useful & now-indispensable machines are continually being improved. Keep up the great work IX :!:

See You In The Shadows…

Another bugfix update...
IXix wrote: Mon Jan 07, 2019 10:35 pm2022.02.06 IX Magic 1.16b x86, IX Magic 1.16b x64
+ Fixed source event dropdown in Step dialog not updating properly if a single Step was selected.
+ Fixed Peer Event values discarding octave numbers (broken by 1.16a)
In a classic case of breaking one thing while fixing another, the code that fixed the sharps/flats bug in the last build caused the octave numbers to be lost. Note to self, test things more in future! :roll:

It'd be even better if I didn't keep adding more bugs! :lol:

Update bump. :dance:
IXix wrote: Mon Jan 07, 2019 10:35 pm 2023.10.30 IX Magic 1.16d at buzz.robotplanet.dk
+ Fixed bug when changing Event accumulator offset
+ Fixed peer value edit not allowing entry of decimal point for percentage values
+ Added MIDI CC to set active Page
+ Improved behaviour when removing only Page
+ Suppressed various alerts (less important stuff is logged without launching a messagebox)
+ When deleting a peer target machine, alert message no longer interupts audio
edit: Note that robotplanet has separate listings for x86 and x64 versions so be sure to download the correct one.

+ Peer/MIDI values now allow comma separated value lists, with forward/backward/ping-pong/random option.
+ Added new Event off modes Latch and Latch Relative.
+ Added next/prev Page buttons.
+ Implemented reordering of Pages via move up/down.
+ Added Page tempo setting.
+ Tap tempo via dialog, midi note or CC.
+ Resources are now saved to a separate user settings file which overrides the defaults.
+ Fixed potential crash when using P to restore a value if there's nothing to restore.
+ Updated UI framework. Should (?) work better with display scaling.
+ Treeview now auto-scrolls during mouse drag operations
+ Pasting now preserves object order.
+ Minor dialog fixes and improvements.
Update time! :dance:

This is a good one, plenty of fixes and some nice new features. Hopefully I've remembered to add everything to the manual.
+ Peer/MIDI values now allow comma separated value lists, with forward/backward/ping-pong option.
Previously if you wanted a specific sequence of values for a parameter you'd have to use multiple Events. Now you can do it with just one. Tremble before the mighty power of the comma!

There are some new subtleties to be aware of, such as persistent values and ping-pong/wrap behaviours. Also value sequences can themselves run in forwards, backwards and ping-pong mode, so it might be wise to have a look at the docs again.
+ Resources are now saved to a separate user settings file which overrides the defaults.
Anything in "IX Magic User Settings.xml" will override whatever gets loaded from "IX Magic Settings.xml", so if you remove stuff you don't want, it won't get put back again when I put out an update.

If it doesn't exist, the user settings file will be created automatically when Magic exits, just a dump of whatever the current settings are. If you want to do it yourself, just rename a copy of the old settings file, it's exactly the same.

Thank you for this update :dance:
I am reading the help, I have also to update my knowledge about Magic!
I like the editable settings, I just buy a CK88 Yamaha a few days ago, I learnt many new stuff about chords, a good thing to begin, a custumised Magic.

There are 2 links in the help that doesn't work on Page Properties: "Note Sequences." and "note sequence syntax", insignificant detail :lol:
So many new things, good job.

Tiny update! Not loading in ReBuzz seems like a fairly big deal so rushing this one out to fix it.

+ Fixed latch behaviour for Events triggered via a Trigger Sequence Event
+ Fixed Magic not loading in ReBuzz
+ Fixed broken links in Page docs.
FYI I've discovered that latch off and accumulator don't play well together for various reasons, so it's a combination best avoided for now. I have a plan though, so I hope to be able to fix it this week.

+ Fixed accumulator + latch bugs
+ Fixed invalid velocity blocking latch off.
+ Message dialog fixes and tweaks
+ Improved queue behaviour when an Event is blocked by accumulator/probability.
The way latch + accumulator work currently is that latches are note-specific (a note on is cancelled by the same note on) and the accumulator counter is non-specific (any note updates the counter).

In the 1.18 update I'll add a couple of extra modes to make this more flexible.
