KV331 Audio releases SynthMaster 2.9: Adds wavetable features, new factory presets, in-app-store and internationalization (I18N) support

KV331 Audio has updated their all-around software synthesizer SynthMaster to version 2.9 with new wavetable features, new factory presets, in-app-store, internationalization support and critical fixes.

This update brings the following new features to SynthMaster:

  • Wavetable synthesis: SynthMaster now supports wavetables with up to 256 waveforms. Users can easily import wavetables by dragging and dropping files/folders on to the wavetable display. The wavetable display can show wavetables in 4 different ways: 2D Waveform, 2D Spectrum, 3D Waveform and 3D Spectrum. The factory waveforms and wavetables in SynthMaster One are also included in SynthMaster 2.9.
  • New Factory Presets: SynthMaster 2.9 comes with 150 new factory presets by Bluffmunkey, Aelyx Design and Gercek Dorman
  • In-App-Store: SynthMaster 2.9 dramatically simplifies the workflow for purchasing, downloading and installing KV331 Audio products by introducing an 'In-App-Store' built right inside the plugin. Users can see the products that they've purchased, download and install the ones that are not on their system with the click of a button.
  • Internationalization (I18N) : SynthMaster 2.9 brings support for UTF8 encoded file paths, so it's now fully compatible with international users who use an operating system with a non-Ascii character set.

There are also critical bug fixes in this update:

  1. When a skin is not found on the user's machine, SynthMaster crashes instead of loading the default skin.
  2. On MacOS, SynthMaster doesn't read wave files with upper-case file extension.
  3. SynthMaster crashes when wave file name is longer than 32 characters.
  4. SynthMaster might crash when waveforms are selected from a waveform dropdown for a preset that's saved before version 2.7.
  5. Some factory presets have missing waveforms.
  6. When number of waveforms is greater then 65535, SynthMaster might crash when selecting a wave from whose index is higher than 65535.
  7. SynthMaster doesn't play some of the presets (saved before version 2.7) correctly.
  8. When SynthMaster is rendering offline, program change messages should be processed synchronously.
  9. BT Silence waveform is not loaded correctly, causing clipping issues for the presets that use it.
  10. Fixed some layout issues with the Satyatunes skin.
  11. Wavetable dropdown control calculates number of waveforms in a wavetable incorrectly.
  12. When the demo period of SynthMaster demo expires, SynthMaster might crash.
  13. SynthMaster doesn't send plugin version number when sending crash reports.
  14. When parsing note numbers from file names, the name is modified which might cause errors for multisampled waveforms.
  15. SynthMaster doesn't parse waveform/wavetable category correctly when they are under nested folders.
  16. Slope parameter changes in the reverse direction for the drive view control.
  17. Multisegment envelope generator doesn't sync correctly to tempo when envelope stage lengths are snapped to grid.
  18. ADSR envelope generator doesn't sync correctly to tempo when envelope stage lengths are snapped to grid.
  19. Lines are not drawn anti-aliased on Windows.
  20. SynthMaster saves empty favourite presets file.
  21. When length of directory names of imported waveforms/wavetables exceed a certain limit, SynthMaster One might crash.
  22. On MacOS, sub folder names are not parsed correctly because of the directory separator differences between Windows and MacOS.
  23. Preset author name is incorrectly initialized as 'Demo User'.
  24. Using mod wheel with modulation target/source/type dropdowns might crash SynthMaster One.
  25. SynthMaster crashes when image files defined in skin definitions don't exist.
  26. Number of waveforms/wavetables is limited to 16384.
  27. When switching presets, SynthMaster might crash.
  28. Curve view mouse wheel increment is incorrect.
  29. Mod Matrix Curve view doesn't handle transparent backgrounds.
  30. Compression view might cause SynthMaster to crash because of uninitialized variables.
  31. When user saves presets under sub folders of Presets folder, SynthMaster might crash.
  32. When number of held notes is greater than 64, SynthMaster crashes.
  33. GUIEditor saves rendered images twice in the skin definition file.
  34. Browser lists in default skins (Gray, Blue, Orange, Red) are not multi-select.
  35. GUIEditor generates separate images for each skin resolution, which results in increased setup file size.
  36. Satyatunes Blue skin looks blurry at resolutions greater than 100%.
  37. Expansions downloads fail when CDN https/http redirection is used.
  38. Phaser LFO volume is zero, resulting in no modulation for the Phaser effect.
