MuTools releases MuLab 5 and MUX 5 VST

MuTools has released MuLab 5 and in parallel the MUX 5 VST plug-in (MUX is the modular sound heart of MuLab).

MuLab & MUX 5 highlights:

  • Multi-Core Audio Engine (MuLab).
  • Integrated Multi-Functional Browser.
  • Extended Drag-Drop Support.
  • Enhanced Automation & Modulation Envelopes.
  • Extended MUX Power.
  • Enhanced Support For Designing Your Own MUX Front Panels.
  • MuClips.
  • Restyled User Interface.
  • More Than 100 Improvements.

Latest changes in this M5.0.39 release version since the M5.0.37 pre-release:

MuLab + Common

  • Removed the "DroppedAudioFilesLengthThreshold" preference and replaced that decision logic by an explicit popup choice dialog. So when dropping an audio/sample file on the composer you get an explicit choice how to use this audio: As a streamed audio file, as a pitched sample or as a sliced sample.
  • Also when dropping audio files (Aiff, Wave, Mp3, Ogg) into the browser more appropriate logic is used.
  • New "SampleFileLengthWarningThreshold" preference, in seconds.
  • If you're trying to load samples that are longer than this preference, a warning question will popup. Default = 300 secs = 5 minutes.
  • You can now also drag-drop audio files and samples below the tracks in the composer so to create a new track with this audiofile/sample.
  • Fixed+tuned the behavior of the browser splitter.
  • More explicit coloring of selected items in lists.
  • More explicit darkening of the inactive region in the sequence and envelope editors.
  • Fixed a possible little problem with drawing notes on odd grids.
  • OS X: Fixed a couple of issues in the MIDI IO engine.
  • A couple of little optimizations.
  • Finetuned a couple of aspects in the library.


  • You can now also drag-drop MuClips into a MUX deep editor.
  • When editing individual envelope points the time field did not use the envelope grid to step to the previous/next time positions. Fixed.
  • Finetuned behavior when pasting envelope points on grids like 1/24th.
  • Fixed a couple of coloring issues wrt custom front panels.
  • Fixed a potential crash bug when loading presets into the Multi-Point Envelope.


  • Added a bunch of preset shortcuts to the package e.g. Undo, Redo, Select All, etc.
  • Fixed a problem wrt using push buttons.
  • Implemented a workaround for a VST implementation bug in Ableton Live 8.
  • Tightened certain aspects in the MuTools VST interface (plug-in side) resulting in a more stable interface.
