u-he updates plug-ins to Rev 2352 (public beta)

u-he has announced a Rev 2352 update for its instrument and effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

During the last few weeks we have done extensive stress testing of ACE. ACE has received some treatment to become V1.3 – it’s got a new “filter reset” parameter on the tweak page for those who need a “digital” filter behaviour to accompany VCO reset. We’ve also defused a few possible issues with multicore processing when changing a preset happens at the time of processing audio and vice versa.

We hope to post an ACE 1.3 release candidate next week, with final installers and information. We would like to send out a newsletter then and hint at Bazille public beta testing (starting as of now).

Changes since Rev 2242

  • Completely redone Mac Installers – check for completeness, file permissions, proper update behaviour.
  • Fixed UI freeze with 32-bit Carbon UIs on Mavericks.
  • Separated AAX 32/64 bit on Win installers, added proper install path.
  • Added choice of gamma adjustments to GUI editor (brightness control).
  • Antialiasing on GUI fonts can now be turned off.
  • Added VST3 ReadMes to installers, made VST3 install optional (off by default).
  • Added module name to VST2 parameter list (check if existing automation is affected).
  • Fixed Win Click-Thru bug, possible also “two clicks needed to close window”.
  • Improved font rendering on Windows.
  • Fixed “u-he menu” on TripleCheese preset folders.
  • Fixed snapshot step indicators in Filterscapes.
  • Fixed missing preset name in VST2.
  • Removed useless “panned BPs” mode form FilterscapeVA.
  • Fixed swapped Delay times in ZebraCM.
  • Improved error message (“Error 3″) on Win.
  • Fixed Diva Waveform Slider offset.
  • Switched text drawing to CoreText on Mac (removes special character issue in Satin).
  • Fixed “apostrophy bug” in Preset Descriptions.
  • Fixed text abbreviation bug on Win.
  • Zebras – Osc Phase now defaults to 50.00.
  • Fixed negative smoothing bug in Filterscape StepSeq.
  • Fixed installers for 32-bit Windows (hopefully, again).
  • Fixed line style wires being cut off in scaled UIs (Win only).
  • Improved voice stealing behaviour (less clicky).
  • Fixed legato modes.
  • Fixed slow UI loading times.
  • Fixed a lot of pops, thumps, nasty noises and critical sound bugs in ACE.
  • Improved oscilloscope modes.
  • Added 200 HS presets to ACE (will also add preset list and extra zip shortly).
  • Added “reset filter” feature in ACE Circuit Bending section.
  • Fixed few issues that could cause silence or noise with multicore turned on.
  • Fixed missing button graphic in ACE.
  • Fixed missing lock function on tuning files etc.
  • Hiding cables now while NagScreen is visible.
  • Made Gate fade quicker as VCA.
  • Made new font compromise on Windows.
  • Added Bazille Installers.
  • Put correct version numbers in Mac installers.

The updated public beta installers are now available for download from the u-he forum at KVR Audio.

u-he’s Bazille modular synthesizer is coming soon

Related: , , , , Posted in news on May 12, 2014 - comment 1 comment

u-he has launched a product page for its Bazille, a modular synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

u-he Bazille

Bazille is a modular FM and Phase Distortion Synthesizer. It’s modular engine allows for patching of any signal output into any signal input, regardless of signal type. This makes Bazille a sibling of ACE, but it caters for a digital synthesis paradigm rather than for subtractive (virtual analogue) synthesis.

Bazille features

  • Hybrid modular system: digital oscillators, analogue filters – amazing SFX capabilities.
  • 4 oscillators with simultaneous FM, PD (phase distortion) and FR (fractal resonance).
  • 4 multimode analogue type filters, 2 of which have 6 parallel outputs.
  • 2 modulation maps, lag processors, quantizer, inverters, rectifiers, sample&hold.
  • Morphing sequencer: 8 slots of 16 steps each (splittable into 4, 8 or 12-step units).
  • U-he’s exemplary customer support, all regular (.x) updates are free of charge.

Sign up for the u-he newsletter to be notified when Bazille is available.

u-he has launched a new public beta of its plug-ins.

As these builds have probably reached a state that is more stable than our official releases, I would like to push them through testing/public beta/release candidates as soon as possible.

Changes in rev 2242

  • Hopefully fixed crash bug in Bitwig on MacOS X (was a Cocoa drawing issue).
  • Put full Mousewheel support back into VST2.
  • Fixed All Notes Off issue with Zebra (abrupt releases).
  • Fixed Pan/Vol Mod Labels in ZebraCM.
  • Fixed MIDI Unlearn in AAX / Pro Tools.
  • Reworked Mac Installers with Apple recommended ownerships (System/Admin).
  • Correct Satin 1.1 user guide.
  • Added full resolution to 7-bit MIDI Learn.
  • Moved Runciter from Example to Harmonic category in PT.
  • Added host/os/bitdepth/plug-in format to logging facility.
  • Correct UI size for Satin in Live 32-bit VST.
  • Fixed erratic parameter loopback in Satin (possibly fixing a lot of random issues).

The new public beta versions of ACE, Diva, Filterscape, MFM2, Podolski, Satin, Triple Cheese, Uhbik, Zebra and ZebraCM are now available to download at the u-he forum at KVR Audio.

u-he

u-he has released revision 2228 of its plug-ins, including Satin, DIVA, Zebra, and ACE.

These hopefully fix the most pressing issues. We know of some bugs with VST3 and you better don’t automate parameters with an LFO in Bitwig.

Changes in rev 2228

  • should really fix AAX (autosave) crash bug for good.
  • added missing buttons/drop down graphics to Filterscape.
  • fixed missing Sync button in ZebraCM.
  • fixed possible crash in VST.
  • fixed automation-stops-when-editor-opens bug in Live/Bitwig.
  • reworked Mac Installers (solve permissions issue?).
  • updated Filterscape, Satin user guide.
  • changed initial open/close laws for preset folder.

Rev 2228 is available to download from the u-he forum at KVR Audio.
