Outsim has released version 2.0.2 of SynthMaker, an audio programming tool for Windows.
This release contains some final corrections to the automatic stage conversion.
Most of the changes apply to Assembler components so if you’re not using these then you won’t be affected. The main point of the corrections made is to ensure that older files containing Assembler components will have any stage1 declarations automatically changed to the new default of stage2.
Also in this update they’ve brought in a new component which was previously on the R&D list. The Save Wave component allows you to save to a wave file. They’ve improved this component compared to the R&D version by adding sample format options and fixed the few remaining bugs too.
Finally the automatic update check had a few issues with the last release. These should be resolved now although anyone moving from version 2.0 or those who grabbed an early 2.0.1 may see an incorrect product name on the update dialog box. This has no effect on the process and has been corrected in 2.0.2 ready for 2.0.3.
SynthMaker for Windows is available to purchase starting at £95 GBP for the Enterprise edition. A free version is also available to download from the Outsim website.
Outsim has released SynthMaker 2, an updated version of its audio programming tool for Windows.
The headline feature is Multi Sample Support. For a long time creating sample based products in SynthMaker has been an intricate and time consuming process. The new Multi Sample modules change all of this and make the process an absolute breeze.
In addition to Multi Sample support we have a fresher look, a refined filter bar, a host of small changes and enhancements under the hood and a collection of new modules and primitives to make life easier. There are enhancements to the Exe export, new code component functions, support for Wiimote input and some big improvements to host compatibility particularly in Steinberg Cubase.
There are other changes too. You’ll see that the downloads are all accessible through the forum now. So you only need to log in once and everything is in the same place. Also we have a new product structure including a FREE version which has no time restrictions. There are other limitations of course but they are generous in allowing you to explore the software fully before deciding to buy.
When you make that decision you can choose between the slightly limited Enterprise or the all singing, all dancing Professional Edition. All Standard and Personal edition users who upgrade will move to the Professional edition.
SynthMaker 2 for Windows is available to purchase for £95 GBP (Enterprise) / £195 GBP (Professional).
Outsim has released version 1.1.7 of SynthMaker, an audio programming tool for Windows.
This is another big bug fix release.
There are some fixes to allow better compatibility with hosts like Cubase. Mouse tracking has been improved in exported plugins and a long running issue with sysex occasionally failing has been sorted.
We’ve improved the audio code sizing so that it’s more efficient and the 256 component limit on modules no longer exists.
Details on what is new in version 1.1.7 are available here.
Outsim has released version 1.1.5 of SynthMaker, an audio programming tool for Windows.
This new release massively improves compatibility with Windows 7 & Vista User Account Control (UAC). In addition, we have a number of other fixes and enhancements that continue to improve reliability.
Changes include a fix to prevent sound glitches and crashes with exported exes on some P4 systems, much quicker copy and paste in large schematics and case sensitive syntax colouring in the code component.
Changes in SynthMaker v1.1.5
Better compatibility with Windows 7 & Vista UAC so there’s now no need to run as admin.
Moved user modules to user local folders so new modules are saved/deleted to there but old ones remain where they are now.
Fixed a bug where undo in text components was not working under certain circumstances.
Fixed a bug in the Delay by One Sample component. A chain of n of these was delaying by n-1 instead of n.
Corrected an issue with continuous Mouse Move messages when the task manager is up.
Added stereo input option to Mem Create to allow it to be used correctly with Wave Write Stereo.
Wave Write components now take plain mem inputs like all other mem components.
Fixed a bug which was causing very slow copy and paste in some large schematics.
Corrected a problem with cut and paste that could result in incorrect module syncing.
The Code and Assembler components now take account of case when syntax colouring.
Fixed a problem with exported exes on P4 machines where either no sound was being let through or the exe was crashing.
Updated the example synth schematic to replace superceded components in the ping pong delay.
SynthMaker is available for Windows PC, priced at £65 GBP / €95 EUR / $133 USD for a personal license, and £125 GBP / €185 EUR / $255 USD for a standard license.
