Actual State of Development

Known Bugs


  • bizarre behavior of loops and cues: small audio files can cause bizarre behavior in loop or cue mode + in loop mode if you have a sound file that is not 44100hz AND you use the pre-load method (menu [MAIN CFG]> General). To be continued.
  • Next Sound File: midi sent too fast can cause a crash of White Cat.


  • name of plan using spaces creates a problem in the reading of data from the plot (pb de scanf)
  • Counting of projectors: there is a problem.
  • Patching live from the plan: We'll have to look more closely at this. There is something between the manipulation of circuits and symbols that can cause a problem when the patch is taken from the plot. If anyone finds this problem and can trace it, it would be greatly appreciated.


  • Time of memories in minutes: appearing as seconds.
  • ASCII congo v6: automatic linking of memories (instead of moving from 2 to 3 alone, the cat goes from 3 to 4 alone)


  • Insert memories: this disappears FROM MEMORY.


  • Setting the fader ratio manually can prevent the mouse click on the GO or use of the spacebar from starting the cue.
  • Some crossfades show negative times (does not affect performance, it is a display problem)


  • Review the entire communication system to make it more fluid.


  • ArtPoll (search for Art-Net nodes on the network) no longer works.


-Mover For enslaving moving lights

-channel times

-wizard: include faders, but also dynamic content in the channel functions

-function pick up (pick a specific chaser, precise fader, a config icat midi or in another show)

-Go to 1024 circuits

-add 16 bits for crossfades

-mapping customizable keyboard

-a universal midi mapper with integrated presets



  • Use FTDI drivers for faster communication
  • CFG: Assign COM Port numbers by hand, not automatically (especially for ENTTEC PRO MK2)

WHITE CAT becomes OPEN SOURCE and the licensing system disappears ! And yes White Cat will remain free!

  • DRAW
  • ECHO


  • WHITE CAT becomes OPEN SOURCE and the system of licensing disappears! And yes White Cat is and will remain free!


  • improved reception of ART-NET, disappearance of parameters in MAIN LOOP. The processor has problems on small machines, but the reception in art-net is now perfect.


  • with the save/load selected, there needs to be more midi presets folder, this option is now removed.


  • withdrawal of DMX interfaces Velleman (catastrophic) and DMX512USB of Vinci's. The Arduino can now be USED AS an economic DMX interface, or use Art-Net, or use ENTTEC OPEN (Nano and 2009 FTDI driver only) or the ENTTEC Pro or SUNLITE.


  • Adding a function to copy from one banger to another
  • Adding category DRAW
  • Adding category ECHO
  • category Windows> addition of windows and windows reorganization. If you use this function in a previous version, it will review your encoding.

0.8.3, 28 July 2012

allias Community Release

What's New:
  • LightPlot: a light plot editor integrated into White Cat
  • 16 customizable views of channels to organize this space and make channels work as a group.
  • Quite profound changes in the ergonomic calls to windows and menus, for simplicity and lightness in the general work area
  • Addition of an EXPERT mode to avoid confirmation windows for the experienced user (CFG MENU> General tab)


  • overhaul of network protocols: the remote iPhone/iPad can now coexist with art-net.


  • once the return key, it is tested on all MAC addresses detected. There is no need to select a MAC address with the mouse.


  • Passage DMX procedures and calculations to the accuracy of one hundredth of seconds see CFG MENU> CORE, dmx rate is the number of calculations per second + items. Minimum clean 40fps result. Turn to 100.


  • overhaul of system of windows
  • disappearance of the NAME window: a fixed field displays the text typed (or keystroke) ABOVE all windows.
  • Faders: smoothing “affect to dock” and “F1” for dynamic content. To assign a dynamic content you must now hold down F1 and click the dock together. Check ASSIGN TO DOCK and then engage F1. Likewise, if a dynamic content window has focus, F1 will switch to assign to this specific dock. This simplification has also been extended to the midi Do Order for faders (the small box with a [V] to load directly into the faders.
  • Direct chan: you can also type the channel number without selecting it: Direct Ch On/Ch Num/click dock.
  • Windows navigation: Added PAGE UP key solo and with CTRL
  • Mini-cuelist removed from White Cat.
  • Help window removed from White Cat. Now when we click help, the default web browser is called and Help is displayed on White Cat if it is placed in the root C: directory.
  • Adding a main bar at the top of the screen, condensing the main commands that you need to see.
  • Creating a window MENU to call different the various windows of White Cat with a right click.
  • Disappearance of the NAME window, the NAME mode remains active


  • Channel View: group of channels assignable in midi
  • Channels and Patch: An option to Show First Dimmer is clickable in the patch window. When it is open it appears in the system space used by the first dimming circuit that is assigned to that channel. When there are several circuits assigned to the same channel, a little more is displayed.
  • Patch: simplified input: [1] [+] [45] [SHIFT] [ENTER] gives the dimming circuit 45 to Channel 1.


  • the number of the memory displayed after the preset is editable in CFG menu/General.
  • When typing the time on the keyboard, you can use the JKL keys to directly assign a time to the memory in preset: [5.] [SHIFT] [J] = 5 sec time out. [10.55][SHIFT][K]10.55 seconds time delay IN. J and K were reversed in function.
  • When looping memories (beginning and end of the list of submissions). be careful that the 0.0 memory does not get destroyed.
  • improved accelerometer accelerated position: the algorithm provides a more precise management of time and proportion.
  • GOTO button: type the memory number, press the button.
  • possibility to bypass memories without destroying them. This is a function essentially dedicated to the creation process, when you need to delete a long sequence of memories, but can ultimately keep them. They are editable in the Exclusion List of CueList and can be recalled by typing the memory number and loading the preset.
  • Pressing shift F1 and shift F3 without typing a number of the memory adds a full memory -at the end of the cuelist.
  • Annotation mode is removed from Cuelist. You can edit each of the two lines via F5/NAME. The autoclose is located in the menu window.


  • Extension to 48 sliders, but you will have to re-encode your presets
  • addition of a category of BANGER buttons that replace those of iCat. Addition of images for the bangers, but you have to reload the images from the site's image library
  • porting play/seek/Loop on the embedded audio, chasers and gridplayers
  • gridplayers in the commands of faders.
  • minifaders: porting to play embedded in audio, chasers and griplayers.
  • the selective release so the layout iPHONE and iPAD are retained (choose mode Choice> iCAT only)


  • Category Channel Set> Set Macro ON/OFF.
  • Hardware category management arduino: switch ON OFF a COM port and set baud rate.
  • Addition of minifaders windows and Gridplayers calls in windows
  • Addition of two MIDI functions: Midi On/Off signals of the faders, and a function to refresh (Re-emit ALL Out)
  • Category Midi> Send On/Off midi out of the 24 tracks of the chasers window.
  • Cuelist category> addition of a refresh Stage and refresh Preset, refreshing states for the memories
  • Category Emulate Keyboard (via Banger gateway allows you to create a remote control from the arduino)


  • Anton Langhoff joined the project and spoke on the arduino part. In White Cat the code has been changed, but the old sketches always work. In the folder named ressources, there is a collection of sketches named WhiteKitten. These sketches can no longer edit the script and set arduino parameters on the fly since the inputs and outputs White Cat have changed.
  • Restriction of the baudrate to the values ​​300, 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 14400, 19200, 28800, 38400, 57600 or 1152007
  • Changing how buttons function to allow midi to emulation all commands in White Cat.


  • Assignment of midi, thanks to the new ergonomics, does not need the window MenuCFG
  • addition tablet midi out on the speed of the lfo's of the faders.
  • Midi option thru review and filtered.
  • button to activate midi out on the fader outputs and the lfo's of the faders.


  • refresh midi when chasers changed in the chaser window(tracks, on/off, play mode, and timeline cursor marks the beginning and end)
  • autolaunch: Go on the change of docks.


  • Addition of a category Fader Level and Fader LFO Speed ​​in the mode follow> can easily create a swap
  • Addition of a condition: Follow Inv. Works like Follow but produces the opposite result.


  • Faders space: definable width. Improving the system of handles.


  • reorganization of import_export folder: into an ascii file for asc alq and schwz folder for your backup schwarztpeter and a pdf file for the plot where the generated pdf export and export image plot.
  • 4 customizable presets (colored squares) to load/save only selected files.


  • selective export now in 14 major sections
  • addition of a channel view of the patch (patch sheet). The dimmer view remains.

In the PDF export, only patched channels appear in the List.

  • memory refresh on stage with Report (F3)

alias Xmas Release

What's New:
 * GridPlayers module developed for the project KeyFrames (Thomas Veyssière Laps Group). This project has successfully met a sacred Festival of Lights in Lyon (2011). [[http://www.groupe-laps.org/keyframes/|Keyframes]]. There are 4 GridPlayers representing 4 Additional cuelists of 1024 cues.
 * GridPlayer 1 in the CueList: an integrated double cuelist to separate light and video.
 * iCAT deck extended to the iPAD (thank you Hugo!)
 * FX modes for each fader: the level from a fader can be reduced, added, etc ... and the overall result is passed to the faders buffer. The light mode can also now be subtractive!
 * possible report of a fader directly in CueList space, whatever the content
 * Creating FGroups: Fader groups, allowing creation of subgroups of faders.
 * Macros channel in the List window, allowing powerful and flexible automation for the channels. Warning, check that CFG Core Macros Channel is active.


  • assignment of midi to each of the 127 bangers (solo call from Live or other)
  • auto-unmute and lfo activated auto mute in the CFG midi (/faders /minifaders/banger/arduino)
  • Optional auto-mute on the accelerometer crossfade: if ever the speed is different from the normal speed, mute triggers.
  • addition of a category of midi cheat: Pad to Trigger
  • midi level wheel is supported for automatic deselection of channels.


  • Direct assignment chan x12 (double-click direct chan)
  • HiPass Mode: When this mode is activated, you can manipulate the levels from the faders (loading channels in a fader dock) by selecting lit channels: they can then be altered using UP-DOWN and the level Wheel.
  • Players in Embedded faders: managing embedded players are all active in the faders (GridPlayers, Audioplayers, Chasers)

CUELIST: * ForceMode for midi (see CFG Menu> General) when GO is in progress, a second GO triggers a jump, not a break. For midi only, destination control of White Cat under Live. * accelerometer does not return to its normal position if the memories are linked (allows you to speed up a sequence of memories.

CORE: * addition of a core config: to limit calculations and displays the number of faders, docks, chasers, chaser's tracks, gridplayers, bangers, and to turn off the calculations. This option allows White Cat be recalibrated to better run on small machines.


  • Assignment mode on the fly: When this mode is triggered, the value of the selected color is applied to the selection (Stage and Blind)

  • Creation of a backup file called general parameters in the users folder

   * Possible disabling of the grand master in the general setup. Important if you work with vvvv Past, if you have channels calling presets …    * In addition preset options of midi to signal inversion (0-127 / 127-0)    * Audio: preload option in the CFG menu is read for loading or not of the an audio file in a player    * Reference midi and stop pos return: n values ​​were not good    * Banger: debug Bang manual it does not correctly time the bursts of events. To test and see if c is ok (verify the manual setting via CueList). CueList has not been touched.    * Windows system and faders space: end of porting system windows ca seems ok    * SAVE: backup files with 0 kbytes. In a second backup under a different name, whitecat created files 0 kB.    * PATCH side arrows or arrows + lateral control are taken into account in the assignment of dimmers    * EXPORT ASCII: a typo in the code version was causing the problem

  • add sending Ctrl-Change Vel Ctrl- 0 and Channel Change by midi, where the pitch and velocity are parameterized
  • remote midi buttons Bang it , Navigation + - bangers and solos
  • addition of a clear function of a complete audio player
  • addition of a level wheel in relative or absolute mode for midi control
  • remote midi buttons
  • possibility of automatically un-assigning controls caused by exotic commands
  • The pin assignment remains active once after activation given

   * Big commands and calls to windows are midi controllable    * time window fully assignable to midi (rotos/buttons), send midi out to the time wheel

  • remote fader its
  • stopPos (stop the LFO)
  • the horizontal scrollbar is assignable to midi (ctrl-change)
  • DoubleDMX option for intrefaces USB: DMX and art-net output can now be sent simultaneously, allowing owners of USB DMX interfaces to work with third-party software in art-net
  • in user/config_dmx the file to specify the refresh rate to one interface, and the DMX refresh rate in
  • In off the receiving of net-art
  • Enhanced system windows (overlap and transparencies). PGDOWN used to navigate the active windows. CTRL-PDDOWN can call solo windows.
 * Changing of the encryption key. 


  • bangs when the in/out times were different, they caused a problem. redesign of the algorithm
  • tripping bang solo set (bug in versions and


  • up arrow and high wheel will now go to 100%
  • keyboard enter key num set to escape fashion


  • Decommissioning possible bangs on all the memories when CueList (previous position, preset and following)

  * highlighting in red for assignment of midi.


  • locked: LFO from levels continued to be active despite the lock. When you lock in below 100% LFO is off.
  • View mode: when a fader is always emptied apparassait circuits in space.

   * goback banger: the goback is now active throughout the duration of the transfer go


  • bug in the partial loading preventing them from moving elsewhere after driving set loading
  • system backup files to txt (sequences_conf, audio_conf, …, etc.)


First put online 29 March 2010:

     * Banger      * Porting DMX following interfaces:Sunlite 8C in + out/USB DMX512Online.net      * Added a grand master, midi controllable      * Patch : simplify the patch with the mouse/Check dimmers      * Control of faders space now includes two areas : left horizontal traction, right vertical traction.      * The IN and OUT simultaneously on two Enttec pros works, however the 0.7.6 release will be a different approach to management Enttec PRO (too much latency with IN)      * Blinking channels now is off . To activate it and see if it changes in relation to the level recorded in memory or preset scene, you must click [view on change]

  • set the display time in tenths for séquenciel and masters
  • debugged, the stage-/+ and the preset-/+ (a concern for file archives to give up bugs fixed long ago) buttons


First put online 2 February 2010:

   * optimizing code for 80% of small machines    * added intelligent input (most deselects when a level has been assigned)    * debugged import ascii conduct in the case of circuits> 512 that crashed curves    * midiIN mute (keyboard ctrl F11)   


First put online 29 December 2009:

 * locks preset  * control assignments to faders of midi-do-commands  * assignment F1 F2 F3 F4 and Time panel shortcut faders  * end of the debugging CueList with the mouse


Debug version 25 December 2009:

 * lock since behrinhger raffraichissment values   * CueList mouse refreshes memory after crossfade  * enlargement of the sensitive area of the mouse to Xfade  * midi assignment to the color wheel
