Changes in FL Studio 9.5 (beta)

  • Live Playlist marker types – Playlist markers can be set to Loop, Pause or Skip for innovative live performances.
  • 64 bit plugin support – The Wrapper now automatically detects 64 bit plugins and opens them in 64 Bit ‘Bridged’ mode.
  • Improved memory management – Two changes have been made to lower demands on FL Studio’s memory allocation
    • 64 Bit & 32 Bit VST plugins can be opened in ‘Bridged’ mode that runs the plugin and its memory allocation in a separate process.
    • Audio Clips & Sampler Channels Keep on disk option now opens the sample in a separate memory allocation.
  • Improved audio options – ASIO: ‘Mix in bufferswitch’ and ‘Triple buffer’ may improve performance with some ASIO drivers. ASIO/DirectSound: Revised ‘Playback tracking’ options to help with alignment of visual feedback with audio where problems exist.
  • Fully automatic PDC – The default for new projects, automatic Plugin Delay Compensation updates the PDC settings when changes are detected.
  • Piano roll transport control – Editing in the Piano roll while in Song mode will now move the Playlist transport in sync with the Piano roll.
  • Piano roll – Rounded notes view.
  • Ctrl+B – Duplicate selection, zoom range or all (no selection) in the Playlist and Piano roll.

DDMF Metaplugin

DDMF has released version 1.1 of Metaplugin, a flexible piece of software that loads other VST plugins and lets you interconnect them arbitrarily.

Plugins can be dragged onto the freely resizable interface, connections are made by dragging cables between the in- and outputs of the loaded effects. Chains can be saved so that the user can build custom effects out of existing modules.

As an extra, a flat-summing four band crossover filter and a mid-side matrix are included in the package. This way, multiband and mid-side versions of existing VST plugins can be built instantly.

Changes in Metaplugin v1.1

  • The chainer now features full Plugin Delay Compensation (PDC) for all loaded plugins.
  • A bug that caused no in- and inputs to show up in Wavelab after initial loading has been fixed.

Metaplugin is currently available to purchase for Windows PC (VST), priced at $15 USD. A Mac VST/AU version is coming.

TRN reDelay

TRN has released version 0.95 of reDelay, a free VST plug-in that can be described as a tool more than anything else.

reDelay allows you to delay the audio by sample presicion, report audio sample delay to host, and have slave plug-ins that can be remoted by a Master plug-in. This can be useful if you have some kind of trouble with audiodelay (hardware synth, no PDC support in host, recording issues, plugin dont report delay… etc).

reDelay features

  • Sample Delay – Number of sampletick the audio is delayed
  • Sample Report – Reported audio sampletick delay to VST host
  • Sample Delay Enable – Enable/Disable plugin sample delay
  • Sample Report Enable – Enable/Disable plugin sample report to host
  • Linked – Delay & Report linked. If either one is adjusted, the other will follow
  • Mode (GUI select only) – Choose between Single, Master(1-4) or Slave(1-4) modus
    • In Single mode, the plugin acts just like expected
    • Master(#) means you control all Slaves(#) with this Master. All slaves with the same number are now grey, and follows it’s Master. You can have only 1 Master for all the slaves with the same number
    • Slave(#) are all controlled by it’s Master, and cannot change parameter settings unless it’s done by the Master, or the Mode is changed. You can have unlimited slaves connected to a Master
