Were these stability issues and CPU spikes ever fixed? Any feedback good or bad?

Issues reported here way after the last up date. Are people still having problems or have you abandoned this one?

Please help me answer these questions:

1. can I load my own wav samples?
2. can I modulate the pitch envelope by ADSR?

Thanks!

SM have mentioned updates on more than one occasion, but I've not seen anything. Seems like a wasted opportunity.

Hey all,
Declan from SM here.

First of all, apologies for the problems some of you have been having with Stacker, and thanks for the kind words from some others!

We are indeed working on an update for Stacker that we hope to be with you very soon. We are aware of the problems listed above and are working hard to fix them which has unfortunately taken longer than expected with a small team and many projects on the go.

We're hoping to get it to you very soon but in the meantime, any feature requests, issues or ideas you have, please post them in this thread and we can address them head on!

Thanks

Bug:-Velocity in the mod matrix does not respond.

Tom at Sample Magic has confirmed this bug and redirected it to his colleague Matt.


Bug:- The Impulse EQ Gain (appears as RV EQ GAIN in the MOD MATRIX) does not respond to the Macro dials when they are selected as a source.

No word back on this particular bug yet. I was thanked for emailing them this bug info along with my various suggestions of ways to improve Stacker.

Hi Declan,

I have Stacker and like it quite much. I use it for layering drums and non-drum samples. My major issue with Stacker is similar to previously mentioned here several times - it's quite CPU heavy (although it works fine on my Mac). Optimise, please :)

Regards,
Adam
