garageremote 1.1d1 October 24, 2015

This is a pretty extensive rewrite to bring GarageRemote into the modern age.

The last time I touched GarageRemote's code was seven years ago, in 2008. A lot has changed since then. Apple has retired some old APIs on which I depended, moved to a purely 64-bit world, and introduced some new security features, all of which meant I had to rewrite a fair bit of code.

  • New, simpler user interface.
  • Adds support for the latest version of GarageBand.
  • Support for 64-bit System Preferences (no more quitting and re-launcing in 32-bit mode).
  • Code signed for GateKeeper compatibility.
  • Option to show GarageRemote in menu bar.
  • Requires Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks or later.

garageremote 1.0.13 June 26, 2008

  • Fixed problem when installing GarageRemote on Leopard that can make System Preferences appear to hang.

garageremote 1.0.11 June 8, 2008

  • Fixed a bug that prevented certain keyboards from working at all. If you've had trouble in the past, you should give this a try. Special thanks to Jack Barnett for his help in tracking this bug down.
  • Note that Mac OS X has a security feature that brings up an alert the first time any downloaded application is run. The GarageRemote listener is a small application that runs in the background, and under Leopard the first time it is launched there can be a considerable delay (up to 30 seconds or so) before the alert comes up. During this time, System Preferences can appear to be hung. Just wait it out, click the alert's 'Open' button when it appears, and from then on, everything should be fine.

garageremote 1.0.10 July 1, 2007

  • Fixes for international users. If your Mac uses a non-US keyboard layout and you were experiencing difficulties with GarageRemote, this version should work better for you.

garageremote 1.0.9 June 25, 2007

  • Recent bug fixes broke some existing configs. This release allows those configs to work again. (Phew!)

garageremote 1.0.8 June 24, 2007

  • Download now incudes "MIDILogger" to help debug tricky situations.

garageremote 1.0.7 June 24, 2007

  • GarageRemote now works on Intel based Macs.

garageremote 1.0.2d1 December 6, 2004

garageremote 1.0.1d31 May 27, 2004

  • fixed a problem that could cause the UI to bog down when receiving lots of controller information (pitchwheel data for example)
  • fixed a problem that required restarting the listener to make mapping changes take effect
