Phew! The last couple of months have been busy with work and home life, but I’m happy to announce the latest release of Synth1 Librarian 😀
This release has a stack of new features, improvements, and fixes:
- New: Added ability to create Used Defined Banks, drag Patches to them, and export them as Synth1 compatible zip files - New: FINALLY! Added ability to 'write' custom Patchs from Synth1 VST into User Defined Banks - New: Patches now show colours if present - New: Added ability to paint Patch cells - New: Added ability to export/import entire Library + User Settings - New: Added logging capability to logFile.txt - New: Added beep when error occurs - Improvement: Optimised plugin startup, for when DAW loads multiple Instances when song loads (UI is rendered only when it becomes visible for the first time) - Improvement: Optimised logic to find similar sounding Patches - Improvement: Library tab text now shows if new messages are logged (ORANGE for messages, RED for errors) - Improvement: Library Unarchiver retries file extraction if file is locked (e.g. by virus scanner) - Fix: Prevent rogue tooltips remaining on-screen - Fix: Fixed drag/drop start point - Fix: Category hover highlight disappears when Patch is dragged off Category grid - Fix: Prevent Category and Bank cells being dragged/dropped - Fix: Fixed Category selection, so that multiple cells can be selected using mouse drag - Fix: Ensure Match categories are cleared before re-running heuristic matching - Fix: Remove "Uncategorised" from Patch tooltip - Fix: Adjusting "Precision" now searches against the Patch originally double-clicked, not the latest selected one - Fix: Fixed LibraryUnarchiver to handle zips with Absolute paths - Fix: Drag/Drop from Search view no longer resets the Patches grid contents - Fix: Fixed Previous/Next buttons for "Search" results - Fix: Fix to copy default_synth1.ini if it's missing - Fix: Patch importer ignores filenames that are not patch numbers - Fix: Corrections to UI grid update/refresh logic
I hope to create a few videos explaining the features, but in the meantime you can see the Quick Help tab for instructions. Head over to the downloads page to grab it!
