Sorry if this is a common question but I can’t find the answer out there. I have the beta of Monome Teletype (which looks amazing) but when I put it in the VCV plugins folder and it unfurls into the folder it still doesn’t appear as a module in the rack. Have restarted etc. etc. Any ideas? Running the latest VCV 2.
Have you looked under the brand filter for monome? Just tried it on my machine and wasn’t showing at the top as I would have expected but it’s somewhere and can see it when I look at the brand. Other than that, did you download the right platform version?
Another thing to try: after closing VCV Rack, look in your user folder for the file log.txt. Reading this file should tell you whether (a) VCV Rack tried to load Monome Teletype but failed for some reason or (b) VCV Rack didn’t know it should try. Knowing which of these happened will get you closer to diagnosing the problem.
Ok all good thoughts. Let me try some stuff. I definitely have the arm version and am on an M1 Mac. I did install serialosc even though that should only be needed for hardware. Let me check the log files - doh!
Hi! First time posting here I’m having trouble finding Teletype in the library. After following everyone’s instructions I got to this message in the log file:
[2.435 info src/plugin.cpp:128 loadPlugin] Loading plugin from /Users/-------/Documents/Rack2/plugins/monome
[2.436 warn src/plugin.cpp:194 loadPlugin] Could not load plugin /Users/-------/Documents/Rack2/plugins/monome: Failed to load library /Users/-------/Documents/Rack2/plugins/monome/plugin.dylib: dlopen(/Users/-------/Documents/Rack2/plugins/monome/plugin.dylib, 6): Symbol not found: __ZN4rack6engine13ParamQuantity17setImmediateValueEf
Referenced from: /Users/-------/Documents/Rack2/plugins/monome/plugin.dylib

I have no idea what that means or how to fix it. Any clues? Cheers!
That looks like a possible mismatch between the SDK that the plugin was built against and the version of rack you are running it against. I seem to recall some changes to ParamQuantity/setImmediateValue for Rack v2.3.0. What is the exact version of rack you are running?
Yup. Rack is not forward compatible, that’s how Andrew’s decided it, so if this plugin has used symbols introduced in Rack 2.3.0 then it won’t run on Rack versions lower than that. Morale: Always use the latest version of Rack or get occasional surprises.
