I made specific changes to Smartstim Version 4 to enable it to work with a 2b.
As owners know , you cant have BOTH data and audio control at the same time . i.e. play an audio or session track in SS 4 and control the cha/b power out of a 2b .
However , you need a different approach to effect the same outcome .
1 - load in a session track with the volume set at 100% and MANUALLY adjust your cha/b power level to your `highest tolerance` setting
2- now you can play the track and adjust its VOLUME level during play in SS 4 manual control window. ie start off with low volume and increase as needed.
( Simply put ... if 100% volume is highest level at trodes which is say 50 on 2b , then having 50% volume gives coresponding 25 out level on 2b .. i.e. change the track volume to change the power out , just as you would do with an mp3 player )
The changes I made to SS 4 are to make controlling the manual window VOLUME control easier . ( previously it was in sub menues and hard to use easily ).
This means you can now control the audio tracks and their volume so theirfore cha/b power out levels.
I took this aproach because in reality , thats what the majority of users of SS 4 do . i.e. play audio and want unit power out control.
2b users of SS 4 will have to modify the existing 300+ sessions containing multipul tracks so they dont start at 100% .
This aproach also means 2b users can now also participate in the SS 4 remote network stim, both p2p and group .
e.g. start a new remote session room , maybe call it 2b users , and all those in that room understand your on a 2b unit and any driver can play/drive acordingly.
I will add 2b control to SS 4 external devices later , but that will only give you direct 2b control at data / unit level . However, most remote stim users dont do `direct unit control` , but a mixture of both audio and unit control. i.e. drive at audio level .
