This ZIP file includes all the software you need to get started and more. It includes the Code Editor (for writing programs), the Hardware Programmer App (for loading code into the hardware), and all the Sample Programs. The sample programs are a great way to get up and running quickly, and they're also a great way to learn how to program Foxonix. Plus, they're fun to play with!

Hey! If you're going to write programs, then you'll need a code editor. The code editor is used to write code, reference the various audio files that will be included in your program, and compile the code and audio into one file that can be loaded into the hardware.
The code editor and compiler is provided by Sonix, the company that makes the sound chip used in Foxonix. As a result, we don't have much control over it and we provide it as is.
The code editor is included with the Complete Software Bundle.
This application is used to load the program code into the hardware. It allows you to select a binary file which can then be loaded into the Fox Board or Project Board.
The hardware programmer is included with the Complete Software Bundle.
The software applications that Foxonix uses are native PC applications. The Hardware Programmer code (which we wrote) could be ported to the Mac platform, but there is no target yet for when this might happen. The Code Editor and Compiler software is provided to us as is and we don't have the source code, so there's no porting it for Mac OSes. But here's the good news!: we've run some tests and this program runs fine under Parallels (7.0 running Windows XP, on an iMac 10.6.8). We also tested it using VMware Fusion 6 (on a MacBook Pro running OS 10.7.5) and it's A-OK.
