Use any of the I-CubeX digitizers with our Link software. A quick and easy way to connect, configure, analyse, view, process, map and route your sensors, and save the settings on your computer. Link operates and configures your digitizer in host mode, which means that the digitizer only sends raw sensor data and all processing is done on the computer the digitizer is connected to, and all settings must be saved on the computer. To operate and configure a digitizer in standalone mode so that all processing is done by the digitizer, use EditorX.
24 Jan 2020: Link v1.45 for MacOS or Windows for all digitizers running the latest applicable firmware, including the Digitizer (only its first 8 inputs can be configured).
07 Aug 2019: Link v1.44 for MacOS or Windows for all digitizers, including the Digitizer (only its first 8 inputs can be configured). Requires firmware v7.32 or higher for USB-microDig with hardware v7.3 or lower, or firmware v6.32 or higher for Wi-microDig in order to use Link (with analog sensors) while running software for digital (I2C) sensors.
07 Nov 2017: Link v1.42 for MacOS (Sierra or lower) or Windows for all digitizers, including the Digitizer (only its first 8 inputs can be configured). Requires firmware update with FirmwareX v7.32 for USB-microDig with hardware v7.3 or lower, or FirmwareX v6.32 for Wi-microDig in order to use Link (with analog sensors) while running software for digital (I2C) sensors.
24 Jul 2012: Link v1.2D for MacOS (Sierra or lower) or Windows from source code in Max for all digitizers including the Digitizer (all 32 inputs can be configured).
Please note that the posted zip file of a released version may be replaced by a newer file without notice, ie. without the newer file being tagged as a new version. If you encounter any issues with the software, please check back here to see if a newer file (ie. same version but dated more recently) than the one you are using is available.
Check the download archive page for older releases. Not the right solution ? We have more software.
- MacOS X 10.7 (Lion) or higher on Intel, or Windows 7 or higher.
- A digitizer with firmware v4.5 or higher, including applicable drivers.
Installation and user manuals, tutorials and tips
- Please read the USB-microDig & Link or Wi-microDig & Link quickstart doc.
- Digitizer quickstart documentation can be found on its product page.
- microDig quickstart documentation can be found on its product page.
- USB-microDig quickstart documentation can be found on its product page.
- Wi-microDig quickstart documentation can be found on its product page.
- Multiple instances of Link can run on one computer if started from within their own folder. This enables the use of multiple digitizers but is CPU intensive.
- If you'd like to use Connect with Link v1.2, select "microDig" as the digitizer after which you can select the applicable MIDI port to establish communication between Link and the digitizer.
- Note that the default browser has to be set in order to be able to link to our website from the logo in the top-right of the software.
- Analysis: apply calibration and view sensor data in a graphical plot.
- Mapping: map sensor values to OSC and MIDI channel voice type message ie. note-on/off, control-change (all 7 bit resolution).
- Sensor data processing: inversion (increasing sensor values result in decreasing OSC/MIDI data values), ranging (the sensor values within the specified range are offset and scaled to the OSC/MIDI data output range), zooming (set the sensitivity of an input to a specific voltage range), absolute value (relative to a mid point value), thresholds in both directions (up and down), hold for peak/dip (detect the largest/smallest value within a short time period and output it), output ranging (map to a limited output range only).
- Actuator output control (USB-microDig, with any firmware, and Wi-microDig with firmware v6.3 only).
- Configuration management: (auto)save and open configurations, load last-used settings.
- Calibration and plotting
- Auto-loading of a configuration
- Workspace saving
- User interface enhancements
Please notify us if you encounter a bug or issue.
- If your digitizer's identifying numbers are incorrectly stored in the digitizer, the software may show unexpected behaviour. The label numbers are shown on the bottom of the digitizer. Use ResetDig to restore these numbers as per the label (except for the firmware number if it was updated).
- MacOS High Sierra is only supported by the 64 bit versions of Link.
- The millisecond time scale of the graphical plotting feature may not be accurate when multiple plots are opened and/or when processing is enabled for one or more inputs. Increasing the digitizer's sampling interval may help resolve this issue.
- When running on MacOS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), the operating system may claim that the application is not coming from Apple's App store and is hence not allowed to run on the computer. To resolve this you need to "Allow applications downloaded from anywhere" in the System Preferences.
- When using Link v1.2, when using a Wi-microDig, (automatically) loading the settings may or may not be successful wrt. the Bluetooth connection and/or the sensor inputs being turned on. If unsuccessful, manually set the missing settings.
