Artisan 2.x and Bullet r1v2?

I’ve read these don’t work together. With Artisan I’ve tried just importing a json file to analyse which gives error codes. Anyone had any success? I have read this here but it seems perhaps not as current.

Artisan can be used if you install the legacy drivers if you’re on Windows. You can’t run RoasTime and Artisan on the same machine due to driver differences. What json file are you trying to import ?

I realize this is an old thread, but can you use artisan on Mac with the bullet?

There is a build of Artisan for the Mac and it should support the Aillio(s) as a device across all the platforms, so no reason it wouldn’t. I seem to recall Marko mentioning there was a MacOS issue with the latest “stable” build so he advised using the nightly/developer build instead which has the issue fixed. Something Apple changed at the last minute which caught them out.

That should allow you to switch out the software of your choice - Windows RoasTime and MacOS Artisan…just move the USB cable…

Hey Stuart,

Just so I understand you correctly, if I get a Mac I can use Artisan?


I have used Artisan on a Macbook Pro in the past so yes, Artisan still support MacOS as far as I can tell from the site…

But honestly with the work that Matthew and crew have put into the revised RoasTime 3.x I’ve not used Artisan in a month or so. The main features I wanted implemented were the prediction/extrapolation to let me see if I was on track for my profile goals without doing mental mathematical gymnastics to calculate RoR future estimates…

Artisan has a more “advanced” roast analyzer, but I don’t pretend to be able to make head nor tail of what it is trying to tell me. I often think of OS analogies - RoasTime is kinda like MacOS - does what you need up front, don’t look too much behind the curtain. Artisan is kinda like Linux - you do have a GUI but theres a bewildering array of options and some of them honestly aren’t very clearly documented. A lot of the documentation is written by the developers. Which honestly isn’t always the best way. If you already know how something works, it’s easy to leave your audience behind…


Thanks for the input Stuart. I am still brand new to Roastime so I am still figuring my way around. I only have a peripheral interest in Artisan, just through hearing others talk about it.

I think the analogy of Mac vs Linux makes a lot of sense!
