KVR Studio Manager updated to v0.1.9.3 (beta)

KVR Studio Manager updated to v0.1.9.3 (beta)

A new Public Beta release of KVR Studio Manager, is now available.

KVR Studio Manager is a free / donationware software application for macOS and Windows that serves as a bridge between a KVR member's computer and their installed plugins and the KVR Audio website, automatically interfacing with a member's personalized MyKVR page and the KVR Product Database.

Changes in v0.1.9.3 / (Public Beta):

  • Rearchitected CLAP scanner (now out of process; many fixes; shouldn't crash KSM).
  • Rearchitected AU scanner (Should now find plugins it didn't find before; more accurate version reporting).
  • Improved background loading / downloading of brand images. This should fix UI hangs / freezes particularly with large plugin lists.
  • Added Status Info hover tooltip for "Unsupported" plugins to provide more information about the reason they are unsupported (if specified).
  • Miscellaneous internal changes.
  • CLAP scanner now detects DISTRHO, Fabfilter, u-he and more.

Known Issues:

  • CLAP scanner may trigger error reporting on macOS if a plugin misbehaves (but can be ignored and will not crash the main KSM application).
  • Some CLAP plugins do not report a version number.
  • Sometimes updated plugins are not detected on scan (CLAP/VST3). Clear the plugin list, close and reopen KSM and then rescan should fix the issue. We are investigating the cause.
  • Duplicate Plugin Report: May display some false positives.

KVR Studio Manager is currently in Public Beta, initially supporting VST3, Audio Units and CLAP plugins on Windows and macOS computers, so you may experience a few bugs. We'd appreciate you letting us know by joining the discussion in the KVR Studio Manager forum where we will endeavour to address any questions and issues.

Head over the dedicated KVR Studio Manager page where you can learn more, watch introduction videos and download the public beta.
