Hi all,

just a quickie before x-mas:

New main skin "Dot8" for power users:

New skin "Dark8" for fans of strong "the other way round" contrasts:

Note: This is beta material. Use at your own risk! Read the info below! Please don't use the Randomizer scripts just yet (see below).

We have one day left to react on issues, but half of our team has left already. Please be lenient with us. Don't install if you're in the middle of something.

Important: To select new skins in the Preferences, make sure you have less than 10 Themes installed.

Win: https://uhedownloads-heckmannaudiogmb.n ... 49_Win.zip
Mac: https://uhedownloads-heckmannaudiogmb.n ... 49_Mac.zip

Linux some time later...

Enjoy,

Zebra 2.8 beta - changelog (revision 6849)

Please backup your presets before installing.
We unified the preset organization between Mac and Win.
On Mac, there were separate local and user folders for OSC and MSEG module presets and Microtuning files.
The user location won't be used anymore. During installation, any presets from this location will be moved to a 'user' folder in the local location.

Improvements:

* New Preset-Browser (minus tagging)
* New DotEight and DarkEight skins
* New Wavefolder module
* New NuRev reverb module
* Fullsize editor for OSC, MSEG and MMAP modules
* FMO module has waveform previews in new skins
* Modulation table for MSEG and MMAP modules
* More parameters exposed to host automation
* XY controls now have fine control via Shift-click
* New VST3 implementation
* GUI performance improvements on Windows
* Pitchbend range now +/-48
* Plugin format & OS info next to revision number
* "On open expand to" has new "none" option
* Windows installer now certified
* Init preset can be loaded from main display

Fixed:

* MacOS High Sierra - folders and presets unsorted if using APFS
* Mac only - possible crash in Cubase when selecting presets
* Win only - VST3 wasn’t remembering preset name in main display
* Playing very high notes could lead to a crash
* Formant filter caused volume spikes when used at 96kHz sample rate
* Zebrify MSEG was retriggering in single trigger mode
* Various small fixes and improvements


Known Issues:

* Fullsize editors slower when using larger GUI sizes
* VST3 - some parameters not reacting to MIDI CC control yet
* MMAP spectralize not automatically updating number of steps
* Init preset needs refinement
* Crash when trying to load script presets (e.g. Randomizer)
* Some small issues in preset browser
* In a few hosts, a "send all keys to plugin" option needs to be used
* Win only - Sonar hangs when using Tab key in text search field
* Win only - issue with mouse and text search field in ProTools
* Win only - short flickering while entering strings in text search field
* Win only - Original and UDH skin, text search field yellow when active

Also... The Dark Zebra + ZebraHZ /w 8 MSEGs (as seen in Hans Zimmer's Master Class): Once this is final, we'll start on that. Maybe in January.

Hi Urs,

First off, thanks for the beta! I love the new skin.

I noticed that my shortcuts to the preset folders for the Zebralette and ZebraHZ don't appear to be working in Zebra 2.8 - meaning, I don't see the presets for Zebralette and ZebraHZ in the Zebra 2.8 preset browser. In the prior version of Zebra 2, I had this working, and would see folders for the other 2, and could load presets into Zebra2 from there.

Have I done something wrong? Or is this a known issue/thing for 2.8?

Thanks :tu:

Hooray! Will this replace the latest build of Zebra 2? I'm in the middle of a few zebra-heavy projects so may need to hold off if this is the case...

Yes, it'll install over existing Z2 (not ZebraHZ).

Maybe finish your work first, or at least wait for a few days until we see if there's any major problems for some. If there isn't anything outrageous here in this thread by Saturday I'd reckon it'll be pretty safe. But who knows...

As I wrote elsewhere, one of our internal beta testers has a strange crash thing going on OS X 10.10, which we are trying to reproduce but couldn't yet. This is the kind of stuff that we need to catch before we release this.
