Device Type: Audio Effect
Description: Hey,
I'm happy to announce that I just released VisualBrowser 2.5

This update brings a LOT of new features to this MFL device, that helps you create your own visual library.

Check out this short video to see what's new:

And you can buy the device here:

This update is free as usual if you've already purchased VB in the past.
You should be able to download the new version from your Gumroad Library:
(Just simply log in to Gumroad with the email address you did the purchase with, and navigate to the Library section to see all the devices you bought. )

If you've already set up VB to your liking you don't have to do anything with your VisualBrowser folder to make 2.5 work. Just simply replace the old device with the new one. : )

One of those workflow improvements you can't do without once you have it. The device works really well and the developer is very responsive.

Setting things up may take a while if you have a lot of devices, since you will need to make screenshots and load the file list into VB. Still, it comes out of the box with the collection of native Live devices and some of the maxforlive extras.

On Mac you can either choose to script the setup part, or do it manually. The method I used was: make screenshots of your devices > rename the files to the correct device name (using underscores for spaces) > select all and copy/paste the files into Textedit > find / replace [.png] to [, ] > copy / paste the list in the add card field in VB > add > copy the screenshots to the relevant VB subfolder.
When choosing a device Live may actually load the preset that comes alphabetically first, rather than just the default device - which is annoying Live Browser behaviour - but the dev fixed this by allowing you to choose the item position in the list of search results.

All in all it is definitely worth the effort on the user side and since Ableton doesn't seem to care about doing an overhaul of the mess that is the Live Browser any time soon, this, at least for me, is THE way to go and an elegant solution at that.
