Generative + Feedback Updates (versions 2.0.4)

This is an update to mainly fix a problem in both applications where MIDI controller number zero would control all parameters. I've also added drag and drop functionality for loading files and presets (drag audio files and folders on to the top waveforms, drag presets in to the preset area). On the latest Mac OS 10.11.2 it appears that previous file browsing locations are not saved, so hopefully the drag and drop functionality will help with this.

Feedback 2.0.4

  • Added drag and drop to allow file and folders to be dropped on waveform display.
  • Added drag and drop to allow preset files to be dropped and loaded in preset area.
  • Fixed MIDI problem with random delay time assignments.
  • Fixed problem with MIDI controller number 0 controlling all assignments (no assignment now shows -10).
  • Fixed MIDI assignment problem with input effects-delay3-mix parameter.
  • Fixed MIDI compressor ratio parameter display problem.
  • Fixed potential problem with loading presets.

Generative 2.0.4

  • Added drag and drop to allow file and folders to be dropped on waveform display.
  • Fixed problem with MIDI controller number 0 controlling all assignments.
  • Added drag and drop to allow preset files to be dropped and loaded in preset area.

Generative + Feedback Updates (versions 2.0.2)

This update is mainly to refine the user interfaces of both applications. As there's lots of controls in both applications, I've tried to make things a little neater and clearer. Aside from the UI, it's an important update for Mac users as both applications have improved stability when using OSX's coreaudio driver with the inbuilt hardware. There had been a particularly gruesome noise that occasionally appeared when switching audio drivers, and as far as I can tell with this update the problem has been solved. In any case, here's a look at the new interfaces and changes...

Generative 2.0.2

  • Gain style graphical filters are limited to +/- 24 db.
  • Fixed problems with using the inbuilt coreaudio driver on some OSX systems.
  • Fixed copy selection function causing playhead drawing / device soloing problems.
  • Made on/off controls in to toggles (not drop down menus).
  • Various user interface refinements.
  • In the States window, a preset can now only be selected if it has been saved.
  • Removed ordered segments button from States window (in practice this is the same as using random segments).
  • Added random positions function to the States window.
  • Ability to control granular parameters via MIDI (stored as a preference).
  • Removed "Voices" and "Global Pitch Variation" menu items, now accessible in the Grain Settings Window.

Feedback 2.0.2

  • Fixed problems with using the inbuilt coreaudio driver on some OSX systems.
  • Various user interface refinements.
  • Fixed problems when changing the routing of output effects and reverb.

Generative + Feedback Updates (versions 2.0.1)

Since Generative and Feedback were released I've ironed out a few bugs with both applications. I've updated the demo applications too, so feel free to try them out and see if you can find any problems! Here's a list of fixes... 

 

Generative 2.0.1

  • Fixed problems with soloing and muting granular devices.

  • Improved stability of drawing playheads when switching playback modes.

  • Copying pitches to individual devices (e.g. copy 1 to 4) now works properly (previously only worked with copy all).

  • Initialisation problem meant the lower waveform occasionally didn't responding to clicks, this is now fixed. 

  • When switching between setting playback areas and segment operations, the selected operation is remembered.

  • Reverb reflections are now on by default, and volume scaled for reflections on/off.

Feedback 2.0.1

  • Fixed problem when using MIDI to clear or record in to delay banks.

  • Added parallel processing to delay banks (reduces CPU usage if you have multicore processor).

  • Fixed problem of waveform display not being clickable after initialise set when audio file loaded.

  • Reverb reflections parameter is on by default, and volume scaled for reflections on/off.

  • Fixed incorrect MIDI note offset (-1 octave) when in Sampler audio file playback mode.

  • When in the Grain and Play Free click and click free modes, the waveform position control is automatically selected.
