Initial Audio has released version 1.3.4 of the Sektor wavetable synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

The update comes with various improvements and fixes.

Sektor is a polyphonic wavetable synth plugin with a highly intuitive user interface and a lot of customization features. Sektor was built to use a low amount of system resources while having a massive high quality sound.

Changes in Sektor v1.3.4

  • Switched to a much cleaner sounding limiter on the output of the synth so sounds better when the volume is pushed hard.
  • Made the resonance of the filter less extreme at high settings.
  • Adjusted the cutoff range for the filter.
  • Added 2 new filter types Analog lowpass and Analog Highpass.
  • Improved the filter menu to have more descriptive names.
  • Added a more analog sounding overdrive to the master section, filters and effect rack.
  • Reduced the CPU usage of the Convolution reverb.
  • Added a clear notes button and Humanize mode to the sequencer.
  • Hold Ctrl or Command while dragging on the Osc+ page to set finer values.
  • Added support for loop points in user WAV files. If the file contains loop points these will be used instead of looping from the end of the file.
  • Tooltips now take longer to show, so they don’t popup quite as often.
  • Improved the level meter to show peaks more accurately.
  • Improved the CPU usage of the GUI.
  • When Clicking the link to generate serial, the machine name and activation code are automatically entered.
  • Users can now move or install Sektors content to another hard drive instead of being forced to install all content to the main drive.
  • Added option to turn off tooltips.
  • Added an option to turn off animations.
  • Fixed: Samples where not retriggering correctly in mono mode with long release times.
  • Fixed: In MPE Mode Glide wasn’t always polyphonic.
  • Fixed: Heat Up 3 instruments not loading in the sample oscillator.
  • Fixed: Possible crash when an Impulse response was missing.
  • Fixed: Higher notes were louder in volume that lower notes, added some attenuation to balance out the difference to sound more natural.
  • Fixed: Some values sticking when turning modulations off.
  • Fixed: Dragging and dropping modulations was turning off all currently playing notes.
