resources are not included, download from Eigenlabs website
for macOS you will need to disable SIP to install (google it ;))

  • disable SIP
    -install resources...
    if you didnt do (a) this step will fail, so if it works things are good :)
  • launch finder window, menu -> go -> go to folder, enter /usr/pi
  • launch another finder window, menu -> go -> go to folder, enter /usr/local/pi
  • now have two finder windows, so drag whats in /usr/pi to /user/local/pi ... you will be asked for your admin password, since these directories are 'protected'
    as far as I remember, there shouldn't be any clashes in files...
  • launch EigenD with factory setup, and the piano sound should now work, as resources contain the sample
  • re-enable SIP

newer version of Juce, updated for el-captain (mac os 10.11)/ sierra (10.12)

for mac OS X only, you will need to install the new runtime (1.0.1) this is not required for any other platform.
(this is due to changes in Mac OS X 10.11+)

known issues:

  • limited testing has been done on this release, its main goal is for testing mac OS X 10.11+
  • EigenBrowser/Command have refresh UI issues on Mac OS X (true of official releases as well)
  • Windows depends on runtime-1.0.1, which doesnt exist yet, copy 1.0.0

This release depends on a new version (1.0.1) of the runtime package (aka EigenD support package) which has not been released for windows yet. For the time being, download the runtime-1.0.0 from the Eigenlabs website, install it and then rename it to runtime-1.0.1 (its found in Program Files (x86)\Eigenlabs)

El Capitan (10.11) / Sierra (10.12)

  • has various graphical issues with VSTs, try both VSTs and AU.
  • Resources may need to be moved manually... (to /usr/local/pi)
  • when you upgrade to El Capitan/Sierra your existing /usr/pi install will have been moved to :
  • you must quit EigenD before unplugging your Eigenharp, if you don't Mac OS may crash!

this thread covers the issues we know about El Capitan:

Linux: should be run with sudo
sudo ./

root permissions are needed for many linux OS for real time threads, and also usb access (the later can be removed with using usb rules... in a later release I will remove this requirement
