Ah ok, thanks for the info.

One last thing, when overwriting a preset with a custom Author tag, the Author tag gets reset. Is this intentional?

Yeah still crashing Cubase 8.5 x64 Took a bit longer to though so, progress!

No problem, I'll wait to use it a few updates down the line :)

I think we might have a fix coming soon... Should speed load up quite a bit for everyone.

Thanks for the update!

Any chance for an installer that update just the "plug-in" without needing to download the whole content again?
That would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the update!

I can confirm the high-dpi issue with Studio One has been fixed for ANA2 2.0.1.

Unfortunately, a new reproducible bug seems to be introduced (Win10x64, Studio One Pro, both in current versions):
When scrolling through the filtered list of presets (e.g. Bass/All/Drum'n'Bass) with the mouse wheel, the whole thing crashes. Using the scroll bars, everything works fine.

Is it possible to get some more main categories added?

Arp/arpeggio (I know there is a sub category, but it seems to fit better at the main Category level imo
Sequence - different to an arp - can be noise
Bass sequence - shows that the particular preset was designed to be played low
Bell


Maybe add cinematic/soundtrack to the genres as well?

Just some thoughts :)

I just received an email that ANA V2.0.3 was available for download.

Download, I did.
The 2 installer files for Windows 32 vs 64 bit got mixed up.
I only found out after version checking as I suddenly saw two options to choose ANA2 in Reaper.

"ANA 2.0.3.exe" installs: "ANA2 x64.dll"
"ANA 2.0.3 64 Bit.exe" installs: "ANA2.dll"

Good news: the scrolling issue in Studio One I reported above has been fixed! :)
Release Notes:

V2.0.3
- Fixes for demo version

V2.0.2
- Demo released
- Fixed issue with old presets not saving correctly
- Fixed preset list not being selected
- CPU Optimisations on GUI load
- Fixed Author going missing when saving a preset
- Fixed CMD Key markers going missing on GUI refresh
- Fixed CMD Preset name going missing on GUI refresh
- Fixed Rating feature causing issue when saving presets
- Fixed bug in sampler
edit: corrected file name "ANA 2.0.3.exe"

So wait a minute. The 64 bit installer installs the 32 bit version?

That's what happened, yes.
You can see it before installing when you look closely at the VST/AAX screen in the description box.

Unlucky glitch, easily fixed by deleting the unwanted file and installing the other one.
Just wanted to spare anybody else the detective work.
Hopefully they will fix the archive soonest... another reason to have separate downloads for Win32/Win64/Mac. ;)

Yeah, I looked in my VST plugins folder and sure enough found the old 64 bit from the 4th and the one I installed just now.

Thanks for the heads up. I would have had this thing crashing my DAW left and right.
