OK. Finally, the plugin seems stable enough to call it officially "out of beta". There are still some issues I will address, but they will not be major changes.

The product page here on KVR is https://www.kvraudio.com/product/pg-8x-by-ml-vst and the official home page remains at https://sites.google.com/site/mlvst0/.

Please, note that banks from the old version 1.0x are not compatible (but can be converted, if wanted).

Thanks to all who helped during the development period, and in particular to ENV1 for the GUI!

Cheers,
Martin

Works fine in FL Studio 12, Windows 10, 64 bit

Love those slow LFO's on the OSC's, can rival Phonec for BOC style sounds :tu:

Great work on the plugin! Just wondering if you're planning on implementing support for 14-bit MIDI learn. For instance, the filter cutoff knob on my Bass Station II outputs messages using CC 16 and 48.

Here's a MIDI file with the data produced by sweeping the filter knob on the BSII:

I am looking into this. In fact, there is some (currently disabled) code in the plugin to deal with 14 bit controllers. However, I am struggling with the problem, that the MIDI standard does not allow to figure out easily (when learning) whether to expect a 7-bit or a 14-bit value. This is because the standard tells that the most significant byte will be sent first. So, when learning, you would need to keep the learning process 'open' until you receive the next Midi message, and then have to decide whether it was the least significant byte or some new message.

Now, that the major problems are sorted out, I will look back into it.

Cheers,
Martin
