1.2 22/5/2020
  • Added support for up to 6 channel recordings in the WAV Recorder algorithm, and added a graphical display of SD card write pressure.
  • Added the 'auto-sampler' to the WAV Recorder algorithm.
  • Added support for microtonal scales (using Scala) to the SD Multisample algorithm.
  • Added the 'Auto-change startup preset' and 'Auto-save when changing algorithm' settings.
  • Increased the length of the filename displayed by the wavetable algorithms.
  • Changed the default MIDI CC mapping for single algorithms to start at CC #7.
  • Fixed problems with stuck or untriggerable notes in the SD Multisample algorithm, especially when chord mode was active.
  • Fixed a problem where the Z knobs would not work in dual mode.
  • Fixed a crash when entering any of the dual mode wavetable algorithms without wavetables on the SD card, and when entering the Programmable Quantizer algorithm without scales on the SD card.
  • Fixed a problem where the display could become corrupt in the quantizer algorithms if the quantized input was changing too rapidly.
  • Dual mode algorithms that send MIDI now correctly use the MIDI channel from the settings.
  • Fixed a crash when a folder had more than the expected number of WAV files in it.
  • Fixed a possible crash and SD card corruption when adding a new file to the card.
  • Fixed a crash in the Wavetable Waveshaper algorithm when processing large input voltages.
  • Fixed a crash in the Granular Pitch Shifter algorithm when the pitch was set very high.

  • Fixed audio corruption while loading presets from the MicroSD card.
