Hopefully it'll be released before the piano library? (which I have zero interest in). No offense Greg, but piano libraries just aren't my thing.
Also, I wonder if the new script will benefit the MesaWinds library too?
My main tools: Alchemy, Iris, Kontakt, Omnisphere, Padshop Pro, SWAM and WIVI.

That being said, the main thing I'm working on right now with the Passion Flute update is redoing all the tuning/phase alignment. The whole note handling engine is being re-written from scratch, and I'm taking a different approach to handling the legato, etc., which is why there's so much work to be done. But the end result is that the flute will be much more responsive and CPU efficient, which is good news for wind/breath controller players.

We're a few days away from starting the alpha/beta testing, and the Passion Flute update is coming along well! I'm really happy with how the response and playability has improved--although I'm primarily focusing on making it work better with wind/breath controllers, the keyboard performance has been improved as well.

Greg, as a recent purchaser of PF and a budding EWI player who has struck similar obstacles to those raised here, I am really thankful for the work you are doing. I've been watching the progress here with great interest. I imagine there are a lot of other silent observers.
Cheers mate. And thanks also to the faithful beta testers!

More than happy to be involved Greg, by all means get in touch.

One thing I noticed is that the F# two octaves above middle C has one of the samples that sounds about a 3rd lower in pitch than the rest of the samples. I'm sure you'll address this in the update as you mention you are going through the tuning but just wanted to mention it if it hasn't come up yet.
Thanks for all your hard work!
