There must be a better solution than splitting the forums like this. At least the code and asm should be on one forum.
It is completelely ridiculous to start a forum from zero, when you have a good existing forum already.

Agreed my friend!

Why not just have ONE program? Nothing like having to search between two identical pieces of software looking for the Component you just made.

I just tried copy and paste between SM and FS, does this not work?

As an FL Studio user, I am curious about the future of the SynthMaker version included with it. I don't see the SynthMaker upgrade options anymore in the FL Studio shop (among other things).
Also, I don't believe that FlowStone is SynthMaker and even more, because the elements used to communicate to/from FL Studio don't exist in FlowStone. I also don't see an option in FlowStone (unless I've just missed it) to generate a VST, which of course, is far more usable in FL Studio than a an .exe file.
I would love to be able to use the advantages of FlowStone, without losing any of the features of SynthMaker. I was so impressed with FlowStone, it's capabilities and features, that when the funding was available, I went Pro.
I would still like to know about the future of SynthMaker, especially it's integration with FL Studio, and any news about FlowStone generating VSTs. Let me know what you know/hear!
Thanks all! :D

As far as I can tell, you can't even Copy/Paste between two instances of SM, you have to have both schematics open in the same instance. However, if you change the filter to 'All Files' in the load dialogue, you can open SM .osm files inside FS and vice-versa - though I don't know if the components that are 'special' to each software will always work when opened in the other one.

Indeed, having two 'species' of the same programming engine always seemed the wrong way to do it. Much better would have been to sell a core 'platform' for which we could buy 'extension packs' to add VST export, robotics hardware, networking etc. - each user could then have the features that they most needed.
I would love to have access to FS's disk streaming and network options, BUT I can't justify the expense because...
1) Duplication - I've already purchased 90% of FS when I got my SM license.
2) Redundancy - I would be paying for a whole load of features like robotics hardware interfacing that I'd never use.
3) The possible future expense of having to keep two parallel software platforms upgraded.
4) Yet more file management and compatibility hassles to eat up my programming time.

If there were, say, a $30 license to buy the networking or disk-streaming primitives for SM, I would have my credit-card out right away - and no doubt there are FS users who would be similarly eager to pay a small free to add VST export.

I see no reason that the 'extensions pack' idea couldn't still be implemented - and surely it would also make life easier for the developers to have only one platform to support, and also make it simpler to extend the core 'graphical programming' idea into new markets by developing further 'add-ons'.
All schematics/modules I post are free for all to use - but a credit is always polite!

why not just make a seperate edition of this simply to appease the old SM users (and hand it out free to the people who bought SM Pro recently, like me)? or at least charge the old price which wasn't complete insane.
SM users probably don't care at all about robotics Stuff (ed.).

Yes!!!! Agreed. Seems to me that would expand the market by not catering to one main demographic, and allow lower-budgeted customers to purchase just what they need, instead of nothing at all, or one month here, one month there. The only positive to the monthly subscription that I can see is (I would hope) being constantly up-to-date with new releases. (Which, for cost reasons, one would hope would follow more along the lines of the FS product cycle, not that of SM over the past few years.) ...But what happens if the beta testers missed a bug or two and suddenly all your schematics don't work? Perform a system restore? Reload Norton Ghost disk image? PITA
