- Fixed many other small bugs

Known issues:

- VST3 is buggy (do not test or use in production - when possible)
- [1053] Pro Tools may crash / hang when reordering instance while playback is running (Stop playback when moving instances)
- [1138] Pro Tools: Balance knobs aren't panning correctly in Delay Mode when Plug-In is running as Multi Mono
- [1160] Wavelab: UI resizing feature not working correctly
- [1161] LogicX: Crash when automating and changing Samplerate while Playback is running
- [1058] VST2 GUI glitches on Windows when automating
- [1126] Automap: Satin AU reports the name "Satin ?" to Automap
- [1134] Gamma settings are not always staying on “neutral” and may lead to GUI oddness (Fix this by setting gamma manually back to neutral)
- [1052] Special characters are not available in the Preset description
- Pro Tools: Preset-names are not propagated to grouped instances
- Ableton Live: VST 32 Bit GUI sizes ≠ 100% are not remembered when reloading project
- Some features (e.g. grouping) are not working correctly in Hosts which use sandboxing (e.g. in Bitwig, Reaper,…)
- MIDI is always received, when using Satin on hybrid tracks (e.g. in Bitwig, Reaper,…). This may lead to unwished results when using Satin’s Flange mode (MIDI note triggering).

Here's the download:

Satin 1.2 RC5 Mac
Satin 1.2 RC5 Win

Please post potential issues below. We look forward to your feedback.

Thanks in advance!

In my opinion: yes! After testing it for a while I haven't found any problems yet. 8-)

Tested in the latest Samplitude Pro X x64 build ( using the VST2 x64 version.

This is one sweet piece of software. Even better now ! The new look is great, except for the bold fonts like : Makeup, Tape, Metering, RMS, Soft Clip, Tape, Repro Head(s), and Circuit.

As well as the group names, encoder and decoder types, and the rec and repro eq names.

If you could make them look normal, I mean, not bold, it would be perfect IMHO.

That said, it's stable, and rock solid.

Well done, now give us Presswerk, yay :D !

I like those letters bold. :)

You can try disabling antialiasing, right-click an empty part of the GUI. But that will look like crap. :D
