Version 1.8.5 of Psycle is now available. The main new features are a new VST Host, a New Mixer, much faster application start/plugin check, wave in machine, new render to wav dialog with dither and plus lots of other small additions. There are also new tutorial songs included that demonstrate some of the features. Here is a detailed list of what's new:
- Finished the re-implementation of the VSTHost. (Internal and UI).
- Extended and finished the Mixer machine. 12ins 12sends/returns, with routing abilities.
- Improved Sampulse partially, can load instruments and be used in a song (Still incomplete).
- Improvements in the new Interpolate Curve Dialog.
- Changes in the Sequencer toolbar. Now it can show names of patterns and change them.
- Improvements in source code (partially from 1.9 alpha).
- Several new native plugins (most developed during the 1.9 alpha period). Total number is now 70.
- Wave In machine that allows input from external sources. Only works with directsound and ASIO for now.
- Sinc interpolation for sampler. Should offer better quality, but it's quite slower.
- "Record to clipboard" added to the Record to Wave dialog box.
- Blocks in patterns can be moved by dragging them, as well as via popup menu (Use Ctrl key for copy).
