Again, this release focuses a lot on bug fixes, but we threw in some feature goodies as well!

General:


- Made it possible to add modules in the middle of a lane by holding down Alt on Windows or Command on Mac.
- Visual improvements to lanes when moving modules around.
- Better handling of high DPI / retina screens, especially on Windows.
- Fixed an issue with modulation labels getting cut off in parameter context popup.
- Fixed an incompatibility with older Mac OSX versions that prevented the plugins from being scanned by some DAWs.
- Fixed effects doing nothing on mono tracks.
- Fixed plugins not communicating the list of presets to the DAW in plugins that use VST preset banks (Faturator, Disperser, kHs ONE).

Phase Plant:


- Fixed a crash when adding empty keyframes in WT brush tool.
- Added support for loading AIFF files.
- Added Peak display to the master meter in addition to RMS.
- Fixed a tiny offset error in the dB scale of the master meter.
- Fix for the sampler module playing back the sample with a few samples of delay.

Multipass:


- Fixed broken side chain input.

Disperser:


- Fixed spectrum analyzer not showing.

kHs ONE:


- Changed vendor string from "kiloHearts" to "Kilohearts" to be in line with our other plugins.

AAX:


- Fixed bypass not working.

1.7.4 - July 2, 2019

This release focuses on fixing bugs. Again, some of the bug fixes affect the DSP code. If you think you have "taken advantage" of these bugs in your songs you may want to bounce your tracks before updating to this version.

Phase Plant:


- Note on and note off events are now processed with sample precision.
- Optimized the sample and wavetable scanning. Opening the browser should be a bit faster now if you have thousands of wavetables in user folders.
- Added scrolling to the wavetable browser, to be able to see all wavetables in large folders.
- Made it possible to drag and drop sample files onto the wavetable oscillator
- Redesigned the loop mode selector in the sampler to be more aesthetically pleasing.
- Added little lock buttons to the sampler for preserving the loop, offset and root note when loading a new sample.
- Fixed samples playing at the wrong pitch for a split second when previewing samples.
- Fixed the the sample play cursor jumping around in the UI even when the loop was turned off.
- Fixed band limits being wrong on sloped noise (40 Hz - 40 kHz rather than the correct 20 Hz - 20 kHz).
- Fixed LFO editor not always remembering grid settings.
- Fixed some snapins parameters receiving modulation values from the latest voice instead of the global modulation values when in non-poly lanes.
- Fixed wavetable oscillator being stuck in processing mode for a long time after doing many small edits in the wavetable editor.
- Fixed a problem with Phase Plant not discovering snapins licensed via Slate Digital.

Slice EQ:


- No longer moving the filter curves and handles in the UI when they are modulated.

Installer:


- Made the offline installer properly understand subscription keys.

AAX:


- Fixed crash that could occur when moving an instance from one track to another in Pro Tools.

1.7.3 - June 14, 2019

This release fixes a bunch of bugs. Some of the bugfixes affect the DSP code, most notably of the Sampler module in Phase Plant. If you think you have "taken advantage" of these bugs in your songs you may want to bounce your tracks before updating to this version.

General:


- Snapins without licenses no longer show up in the snapin picker.

Phase Plant:


- Fixed handling of "all notes off" and "all sound off" MIDI commands.
- The grid and snapping settings are now saved in the LFO editor.
- Fixed the the "Aux Input" modulation target showing up as "Unknown".
- Added two new tutorial presets: "Delayed Envelopes" and "Dual Band Processing".
- Fixed reverb tails sometimes getting cut off too early in polyphonic lanes.
- Fixed some clicks and pops that could occur in the sampler with the "Fwd-Rev" loop mode, even when crossfade was used.
- Fix for crash in sampler when a negative shift was used (i.e. when playing backwards).
- Fixed "Sustain" loop in sampler restarting from the beginning of the sample when releasing the key.

Audio Unit:


- Fixed sounds being played at the wrong pitch in some sample rates.

AAX / Pro Tools:


- Fixed notes not playing correctly.
- Fixed space key not starting and stopping playback when plugin has focus.
- Fixed a bug that caused random crashes.
