Animated Circuits and the Plugin Manager

I’m curious, why are the Animated Circuits plugins not available to download through the plugin manager?

I think the person that made them didn’t want them in there.

Oh, ok. I wonder why not?

Oh well, a minor inconvenience to me I suppose :slight_smile:

I don’t know, I guess it migh tbe in the archives somewhere. Things will have to change when v1 comes out.

I’ve been looking for Cozmic and all I can find by Animated Circuits is the Folding Wavefolder. Is Cozmic coming back soon?

I don’t know when it will move out of beta but the new version is here though I can’t speak for the safety or functionality of this release:

edit to change the link to something more useful

I have seen streamers (Jaynothin for instance) using it. YMMV

I have used Cosmic and Itcz many times. @Omri_Cohen uses Cosmic quite frequently. No problems so far. In fact, when I saw this topic, I just assumed that these modules were in the library. My surprise when I realized after all this time that they were not!

Yeah, the Cosmic is one of my favorites…

This happened to me too while I was working through the Warps tutorial. Does anyone know when it’s coming back?

Maybe i was unclear in my reply: I believe CZRider is basiclly Cosmic in a newer form but you have to manually install it.

Oh cool! Thanks dude! How do I install it to Rack?

It’s been so long since I had to do it that I don’t remember…hang on…

The details are there under " Installing plugins not available on the Plugin Manager".

I’ve been reading it and I might have figured it out. I’m using a Mac, so it’s a little confusing.

Actually, I think I broke it. Great. Here’s my log. I have no idea what I’ve done.

You only need zip 1.2.0 , remove all the folders from Animated Circuits preview (not the AnimatedCircuit one) , put the 1.2.0 zip in the v1 folder and start vcv.

Please surround code and terminal output with ```. Edited post.

Is that better?

Hi, so I was able to remove the preview files from Rack, but how do I add the .zip files? Do I just add them to the plugins folder?

Yes put it in the plugins-v1 folder and when you start up rack it will extract the zip.

It worked!! Thanks so much for the help!
