HyperSynth updates ION-editor to v1.1
HyperSynth has released version 1.1 of ION-editor, a MIDI-editor for advanced controlling over the famous Alesis ION and Micron analog modeling synthesizers in your DAW.
For rejecting the mouse flicker and reducing zippering noise on MIDI port every knob is specifically programmed to transmit the MIDI messages like a real hardware MIDI controller so ion-editor knobs don’t generate several unwanted data with the same value which is a common issue in the most of the other MIDI-editors. The same pages like the original ion LCD display make the tweaking easy for parameters that need more descriptive information like filter panning, arpeggio, mod matrix and tracking generator.
Changes in ION-editor v1.1
- Added support for Alesis Micron synthesizer.
- Added new readout option for filter frequency the same as ion display.
- Added “All notes off” button that shuts off all eight voices like double-press of home button on ion.
- Now LFO1, 2 and S/H rate show frequency in hz instead of percentage.
- Fixed a problem which did not allow automation for filter2 frequency.
- Fixed a bug in ENVs “freerun” and “loop” which caused unwanted loop enabled in empty presets.
- Midi in switch no longer blocks notes which are coming from the host.
- Preset manager no longer remembers the changes until you save a preset.
- Faster startup.
ION-editor is available as a VST plug-in for Windows PC for $30 USD. A demo version of the plug-in can be downloaded from the product page.
