  • New: the Developer Mode option has been discontinued.
  • New: string to string array component, provides a way of making string arrays which contain commas in the individual elements.
  • New: functions for the Code component, pow, exp, abs, sqrt, sign.
  • Fix: search was not identifying matching words in module help text which had capitals in them.
  • Fix: when using a gate the envelope modules now wait for the gate to signal note off instead of the MIDI note off.
  • Fix: the ASIO driver now resets automatically after changes are made in the ASIO settings.
  • Fix: the MIDI In Select and MIDI Out Select modules no longer change with preset changes.
  • New: option to run in background for the Shell Execute component (the default is now to wait for completion).
  • Fix: there were issues with single sample delays which resulted in the delay being off by one sample under certain conditions.
  • Fix: the Signal Analyser wasn’t setting the type sometimes on re-load.
  • Fix: when zooming fully out using the mouse wheel the zoom level was getting stuck preventing you from zooming back out.
  • Fix: the Bool to True and Bool to False components were not setting state until after sending the trigger out which causing problems when used in feedback loops.
  • New: sample rate for Direct Sound is no longer fixed at 44100.

  • Fix: when deleting a module containing either Direct Sound Out or ASIO In/Out the toolbox was not being updated to allow you to add a new one.
  • Fix: ASIO now updates as you change settings where before you would have needed to turn it off and back on again.
  • Fix: possible crash when adding a module containing the Wave Array Read to the toolbox.
  • Fix: there was an issue with the compression when saving very small schematics that caused the file to be unreadable.
  • New: enhanced update check.
  • New: small refinements to application appearance.
  • New: more compact filter bar with fewer groups but at a higher level.
  • New: the MIDI to Voices now defaults to starting a new voice for each note.
  • New: the 'Using Samples’ input to the MIDI to Voices has been renamed and allows you to select between reusing the same voice for the same note or starting a new one (default).
  • New: option on the MIDI to Voices to specify whether repeating the same note creates new voices or just has one instance when MIDI Sustain is on.
