Kundalini Piano Mirror now available on the Android Platform

By | KundaliniSoftware | No Comments

The Kundalini Piano Mirroring Platform is now available for Android (!), and can be downloaded from Google Play:

Like the original PortMidi-based Windows version, the Android version is designed to represent a minimally-viable-product. (In other words, don’t look for a fancy UI here!)

Instead, the Android version provides the core functionality needed to facilitate symmetrically inverted playing– which is the whole point of this project.

But the world being what it is, expect updates in the future that provide a better user interface!

The Kundalini Piano Mirroring Platform is currently available for Windows-based systems, with both source code and binary installers released now.

Additional information on the system can be found on the main Kundalini Software website.

Up Next

Several enhancements are coming to the platform soon.

I am currently at work on an Android version of the software to be released through Google Play.

Additionally, I had an interesting idea recently to add the ability to map certain ranges on the keyboard to certain midi voices, so that multi-part music can be played with different fingers producing different voices.

More information coming soon!

Lightning Path 2.5 Released

By | KundaliniSoftware | No Comments

Today I updated the main Google Play version of the Lightning Path app to version 2.5

Very little actually changed on the surface, but I updated all my development tools, and am starting to restructure the code base (which is dated) so that we can support a more modern user interface.

Additionally, I integrated code I wrote several years ago in a different iteration of the app to include the Google In App Billing framework.

Once we start to integrate more recent Lighting Path content into the apps, we can allow users to all freely available LP content, plus have the option of either accessing LP student-only content via their LP subscription, or by purchasing student-only LP resources in a piece meal fashion.

The next thing I need to do is to update to the latest version of the FolioReader .EPUB viewing library that we are using in the app. Right now we are using a dated version, which has some bugs in it.

Kundalini Software is now active on GitHub, and am I am able to contribute some improvements to the open source library, as well as release some other Kundalini Software offerings as open source. (Note: The Lighting Path apps are not open source.)

But the newer version of the .EPUB library we are using is nice, and support audio narration. So please will be able to listen to switch back and forth between reading and listening to their Lighting Path books.

Looking back, the whole process of creating these apps was sort of a fiasco for me of starting, stopping, going off in different directions, etc, and transpired over more than ten years.

Version I created include at least:

  • a native ObjectC version that runs on Apple IPhones and IPads and IPods
  • a native C# Windows Mobile version, distributed through Microsofte
  • an Android Version using the Google Play infrastructure and libaries
  • an Android variant version distributed through Amazon using the Amazon in app billing and deployment infrastructure for use on Amazon Kindle Fire based devices, etc.
  • other stuff I can’t think of or remember

That whole time I made almost no effort to really get anyone using the apps or even much letting them know that they existed.

But in retrospect, I can see now that the whole thing is part of a large creative moment that is transpiring over an extended time span, whereby I am working in conjunction with Michael to create a useful platform to help distribute Lighting Path content on a big scale. Right now there are not many users, and my development efforts seem to be fragmentary.

But actually, a lot of the ground work has been accomplished in the past, and it is ready to start to be “brought together” in the present. As a matter of fact, sometimes I can’t even exactly remember doing all the development work in the past, and it just sort of seems like the past is also solidifying behind us to help support out creative efforts in the present.

When I start seeing the world like this, it means I am functioning in a highly connected state, and can see the designs of higher consciousness more clearly as the manifest in linear time.

LP App bug fix release

By | KundaliniSoftware

Small bug fix releases to the Amazon (version 2.7) and Google Play (version 3.5) editions of the Lightning Path Mystery School and Archetype App were released today. No new features are present in either version, but a problem of losing context during screen orientation changes was addressed.

Lightning Path Mystery School and Archetype App, version 3.3 available from Google

By | KundaliniSoftware

Version 3.3 of the Lightning Path Mystery School and Archetype App is available today for the Android platform. This is a significant milestone because the app now integrates with online Lightning Path content and user forums.

From the main menu, a user login option is included which authenticates the user against the user database on the main Lightning path website. Once a user is authenticated, links to online content from within the app can then be accessed, leading to appropriate online content for the user’s login level becoming available.

Download version 3.3 from the Google Play store now!

A complete changelog is provided below:
