Device Overview

Name/Version: Pomodoro Timer 1.1
Author: SquarewaveMultimedia  
Description: This is a simple timer for use with the Pomodoro timeboxing technique.

From Wikipedia: "The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. These intervals are named pomodoros, the plural in English of the Italian word pomodoro (tomato), after the tomato-shaped kitchen timer that Cirillo used as a university student."

The timer is very basic and features optional pop-ups and sound to alert you when it is time to take a break.

NOTE: If you have the timer sound enabled, the audio will come through your master chain so be aware of that if you are rendering or resampling.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that this is useful for someone!

Fantastic. Have been using separate Pomodoro apps previously, but will replace them will this on my master. Thanks!

Awesome! I hope that you find it useful and if you have any feedback for tweaks or additional features please let me know.

Thank you for checking it out and take care!

Hi, this device seems great. I can't seem to get it to work. If I drop it on any track it does not allow any audio to pass through. Don't understand how I
should go about setting it up.

I too can't seem to get this working anymore. I'm running Live v9.7.1 (2016-11-15_a024ca1056) on Mac OS X 10.11.6 (15G1510) with Max v7.3.3 (5d15e6b) (7.3.3)

In Max Console I'm seeing this:

I'm very sorry about that, I am looking into it and I will get a working version back up asap!

Ok, @gauthampattani I am fixing the audio pass-through right now and I am still investigating the issue that @broah is experiencing.

Sorry that it took me so long to respond

Updated version of the patch has been posted which should take care of any audio pass-through issues.

I am not quite sure why the patch would lose js file references on Mac, however, it could be a result of unfreezing the device.

Thank you for your feedback on this!

Seems to be working now! I'll wait until the 25 minutes goes off to see if the popups / sound works, but as of now the timer is working again.

I know pomo is typically 25 min, but it'd be cool to be able to adjust it. I like trying to work super fast so for example I will say "10 min - beat, 20 min - chords / melodic stuff, 30 min - arrange, etc. Manual time entries might be helpful to some people.

Anyway, thanks!


Very cool!
I am happy to hear that it is working for you and I appreciate your feedback!

I was planning on adding more customization features if people showed interest so I will begin work on that as soon as I can.

Thank you again and take care!
