  • New nodes:
    • Saturator: anti-aliased saturator.
    • Foldback: anti-aliased foldback waveshaper.
    • Sine folder: anti-aliased sine folding waveshaper.
    • Clipper: anti-aliased hard clipper.
    • Polarity: anti-aliased waveshaper.
    • Reflect: anti-aliased waveshaper.
    • Allplus resonator: modified Karplus-Strong resonator.
    • New math nodes: SinH, CosH, ASin, ACos, ln, lb, 1/x.

    • GUI enhancement: hover scopes appear time became shorter.
    • Workflow enhancement: replace selected nodes with the last node selected while keeping patch connections by hitting ‘R’.
    • Workflow enhancement: exchange node from palette while keeping patch connections by right-clicking on an empty area of a node.
    • Phase delay output added to Filter 1p Modulated.
    • 1pole Lowpass filter pickup output added to Filter 2p RC Modulated.
    • Allpass filter pickup output added to Filter 2p RC Modulated.
    • 3pole, 2pole, 1pole lowpass, and 2pole bandpass pickup outputstg added to Filter 4p RC Modulated.
  • Fixes:
    • Frequency shifter: fixed the noise caused by the frequency shifter.
    • Inactive nodes: fixed an issue, where several nodes became inactive when pasted.
    • Clipper AA: replaced the hard clipper with a more efficient anti-aliasing algorithm.
    • Fixed reverb nodes phasing artifacts, and reduced the amount of modulation.

Alpha Modular Forever is available for Windows, priced $80 USD.
