I just fixed / updated version 1.70 of Phenome again.
I've added a little Setup button (to the right above the browser).
Currently you can choose (enter) your PhenomeData location in there. So that you don't have to fiddle with searching the config.txt file and stuff
So, if you've installed libraries to e.g. D:\Sounds\New\PhenomeData\
simply type in:
- Code: Select all
And click the Disk Symbol to the right.
This change will then be stored permanently.
Also a Multi button has been added (for loading and saving Multisetups). (They're saved as standard FXP files).
Oh, and there's the new "performance mode".
Clicking there turns it on. With notes C to G (Note Numbers 24 to 32) you can "switch" between layers, or choose which layer to play via keyboard.
Great for live-performance, moving sounds and other crazy stuff!
(In the future there might come a Guitar-Simulation that features switches for legato,sustain,fretnoise and stuff like that )
NOTE: Performance Mode-setting will only be save in Multisetups (FXP's).
"Factory B Library" has been released also!

v1.6 Release Notes:
MIDI Learn: If you experience wobbling or strange behaviour
with an automated control while playback, make sure your keyboard
doesn't send aftertouch while doing MIDI-learn!
With some soundfonts you won't hear nothing at all after loading them.
Make sure to select the right Instrument in the Patch/Instrument slot. Phenome assumes Soundfont Instruments to start at Bank / Patch "0" (Zero) !
New Preset loading/saving:
You can save phenome layer-presets everywhere on
your harddisc(s). The full path to used sf2 files is stored
within each preset. *.phe-presets are simple text-files so
you can edit them afterwards (e.g. changing a soundfont).
Oh, and avoid saving patches in the "phenome" vst folder itself!
From there my file-exists-routine won't work. Also to be fixed in next release.
[b]There's also a 410 MB factory library!
The Library comes with around 130 Phenome Presets and 101 Soundfonts!
