(reading time: 1 minute)Earlier this year I wrote that I was donating all Synth 1 Librarian contributions to charity. Well I did: Thanks to everyone that contributed over the past 12 months. You get to help a child who doesn’t have a life as fortunate as yours.
(reading time: 1 minute)I just fixed this really annoying scenario: Enter a melody into my DAW Use the RANDOM button in Synth1 Librarian to pick a patch Hit SPACE on the keyboard to start playback in my DAW Discover that Synth1 Librarian also responded to the SPACE key, and decided to select another random patch. Grrr! This version […]
(reading time: 1 minute)Fixing bugs is a tricky business, and the very first thing I need to do is reproduce it on my PC. But as you all have different configurations (e.g OS, DAW, admin rights, install folders), I can’t always replicate your scenario. So if you need to report an issue, please include the following info: Operating […]
(reading time: 1 minute)Late last year, a young cousin of mine passed away unexpectedly. She was the kind of person that saw the positive in everyone, and loved young children. Last weekend, I helped her family scattered her ashes in the sea at Skegness, which was her favourite summer holiday destination in the UK. Her closest cousins, siblings, […]
(reading time: 1 minute)Some users reported that Synth1 Librarian failed to start with their host. This release fixes those issues (hopefully!). I’ve tested in VstHost, SaviHost, Renoise, Reaper, and Cantabile. If you have problems with any other DAW/host, leave me a comment with the details. Thanks to Brad (author of Cantabile) for bringing this to my attention. […]

(reading time: 2 minutes)Someone reported a problem that I’ve never encountered before: they can’t get Synth1 to receive patches from Synth1 Librarian. Synth1 Librarian sends patches to Synth1 via a temporary patch folder, which is located at %APPDATA%\Synth1.Librarian.64|32.net\TempPatches (the 64/32 depends on the bitness of the Librarian). So the requirements to send patches are: Synth1 Librarian needs to […]
(reading time: 1 minute)A couple of users reported a weird anomaly: Synth1 Librarian seemed to be extracting zipbank archives to the folder %TMP%\Synth1\zip (e.g. “C:\Users\[myusername]\AppData\Local\Temp\synth1\zip“). I was really confused, because Synth1 Librarian does not create or use that folder – ever! So what was going on? The answer: Synth1 itself creates that folder, for managing it’s own patch library! You can […]
