Miss Parker Manager v1.4

We're happy to announce a new release of Miss Parker Manager.

For those who don't own a Miss Parker, I'd like to remind you that the Miss Parker Manager can deal with any other device by means of dynamic libraries. For the the moment, only the Alesis development board is supported on top of Miss Parker but other device could be added pretty simply.

In order to get full features of this new release, the Miss Parker should be upgraded with firmware v1.5... read more

The preset used for the AL3201 is now stored and reloaded at boot time.

This only applies to Miss Parker Plus, not to Miss Parker.

* Improved even further the "non smooth" potentiometer move issue under Windows XP. The polling interval is now made bigger as the HID report queue is made smaller on Windows platforms.
* Added a Packet counter byte when sending data to the PC so that the PC can make sure that the report it gets is indeed the one it asks for.... read more
