Lost Technology v0.2

Lost Technology has been updated to version 0.2.

Lost Technology transforms sounds by taking them apart and then putting them together in a different way.

The Analyzer components split the input signals into amplitude, frequency and waveform (harmonic content) sub-signals. The Modulator components combine sub-signals (and audio signals) in various ways. The Synthesizer components merge one sub-signal of each type into a new audio signal.

Changes in v0.2

  • The sizes of the waveform buffers can be changed. The default setting should work well most of the time; lower settings are useful when memory must be conserved, higher ones when very low minimum frequencies are desired.
  • The F&W update trigger sequence can be inverted. In version 0.1.3, the valley->peak->posneg sequence was arbitrarily chosen over the equally valid peak->valley->negpos form. Now both alternatives are available to the user.
  • The effects of parameter settings are now mostly independent of the sample rate. LT presets will produce similar results for all host sample rates.
  • Code reorganization and streamlining. LT might use slightly less CPU time now.

Presets made for earlier versions of LT will not load correctly in version 0.2. If you have presets that you want to keep, load them in your current version and note down the parameter settings before installing version 0.2.
