Arne, do you think that one day we could map one CC to multiple parameters? That would be a first improvement for u-he plugins.

Thank you,
Alex.


Everything is possible. As I'm not alone defining the VST3 API this depends on many more people's opinions.
More on this should be discussed on the VST3 SDK forum.

And Urs, it's ok to provide information on product limits and why they exist, but to spread false information (like "they are not doing it") doesn't help anyone.

We already started this discussion there a long time ago ;-)

Sorry for that - the mechanisms that lead to this statement are complicated and based on the information we had, paired with experience and a lot of frustration. I doubt it was false information, but I'll happily apologize if proven wrong, e.g. by getting a plain MIDI stream in VST3.

To Arne, not as a developer but as a VST user I want to say to you and the rest of the team: please do your best. Maintaining a standard is an important task. Not everything will be used exactly the way you imagine it, and that's okay. It's not just a standard for Steinberg, but for all kinds of developers and all kinds of uses. A good spec should accommodate for these freedoms.

Thanks for clearing that up more for me.

i think compatibility for such old OS versions got dropped during the last beta, not 100% sure tho.

Yep, sorry, we have moved the codebase to 10.7+ - but as you need VST2, you'll be fine with the official version.

why is it named "Diva_5541_Win" but in reality v1.4.2? then in the download the readme says 1.4?
a bit lazy when you downloaded some builds and want to sort :P

I think that's their build number.
It really should be 1.4.2.5541 is nomenclature from other some other developers.
The readme probably won't be changed till the release candidate would be my further educated guess.

It's a beta version. That means it's not an "official, 100% stable release" but a "potentially unstable pre-release test version".
Therefore no official v1.4.x release version number in the file names.
zvenx is correct, 5541 is a continuous build number, not a version.
Isn't 1.4.2 part of 1.4?
Cheers,
Rob

Just tried this new update. The DCO module in its default state is still out of tune with the rest of the other VCO modules - being around +7 cents out. It's no real problem since you can re-tune the whole synth but it would be nice if it were in tune.

This is fantastic news, I've suffered that bug for years. But what does the fix actually mean? There is no preset info field. There is Preset Description and Preset Usage.

I hope both are fixed so that we can write longer messages about the presets.

Preset description is probably the same thing as preset info.

Yes, both are fixed, you can write longer messages now in both of those fields.
When you go to to the preset browser page in Diva, the area that displays this information is called 'Patch information'. That's why I called it 'preset Info field' in the bug-fix description (should probably have called it 'patch information field'). :wink:
