Update to Mod 1.10

Hey guys, has anyone seen the stable release of mod 1.10 is out? Anyone tried to get this running under patchbox or on Pi?

I’m interested in this also.

I see that the Zynthian guys have managed to update to 1.10. I’m gonna try use their recipes to update my install.

A zynthian user mentions the patchbx recipes in a May 26 post here.

The world is circular…

Yip, that’s me. Struggling to get the IR plugin to show the IRs. The rest is good!!

Also keen! Tried building things but ended up breaking everything :smiley:

I can share my script with you if you like. It’s about 98% done, but it’s just the IR loader list that’s not populating. DM me and I’ll send it to you

Ooh yeah the IR Loader is what I’m after. Perhaps I can help. How do I dm on this forum?!

I have DM’d you @MrHaste

I have the IR cabsim working correctly!! I have a script for patchbox os and soon I will have one for elk audio os too. Must say that the IR’s that I’ve tried so far are sounding amazing!!

Dude, that’s awesome! Elk too! I can wait to try out the IR’s.

Any chance of sharing the scripts? :smiley:

I will upload to GitHub later today with all the instructions required.

Alright, so here is the link to my GitHub. Please note that this only installs 4 LV2 plugins. It would be best if you copy your MODEP plugins folder to a local directory(I use winscp) before installing and then copy them back to ~patch/.lv2

git clone https://github.com/micahvdm/mod.git
cd mod
sudo chmod +x install.sh
sudo ./install.sh

Hello deathbeard,

I tried to follow your instructions but unfortunately I ran into some errors.
The first mistake I’ve got was because I cloned the repo into the home directory with the name “mod” and the script wants to create a directory with the same name in this folder :frowning: After that I had to delete the “/home/patch/.lv2” that was created by the script in line 15. I think in line 104 the option -r is missing. Also I’m not sure if the filenames of the services are correct. For example mod-host.service is named modep-mod-host.service in my version (latest Modep-Image, freshly installed). Do you use another version of Modep?

Now I’m facing the problem that mod-ui service (i renamed the file to modep-mod-ui and replaced the old one with it) won’t start.
sudo journalctl -r --unit modep-mod-ui gives the following output:

Jul 01 08:11:23 patchbox systemd[1]: modep-mod-ui.service: Failed with result 'exit-code'.

I really don’t get it and would be so glad if you could help me!

Hey @mgcmshr I have updated the script a bit.

Please note that you need to run this on a clean patchbox install. DO NOT INSTALL MODEP. It will clash with MODEP.
The script will now use Mod-Host hotfix-1.10 branch as the master doesn’t work properly due to recent changes.

I have also added that the clone folder gets renamed first before it clones anything else.

Please clone and run the script on a fresh install of patchbox without activating any modules.

This is not MODEP, but pure Mod.

Thank you very much @deathbeard!!!

There was a little problem before moving the .service files to the system folder. A cd into this directory is missing but i just separated this last part from the script and ran it afterwards.
It’s working now. I had to change some settings in the mod-ui.service and set connections manually.
I assume that the IR files have to be placed into the ~/data/user-files/Speaker Cabinets IRs folder?!

I think IRs are pushing the guitar sound to a new level! I love it! :slight_smile:

FYI: I used a Pi 4 8GB

Before I completely overwrite my current installation do you know if this will work if I simply uninstall he modep packages on an existing installation?

I would suggest using a separate SD card to test this out. From my experience, there are a lot of errors and issues with installing it on a setup that had MODEP running already, just due to services etc.

It can be uninstalled by removing all APT packages that start with ‘modep’ :slight_smile: To install it back again, do sudo apt install modep
