The Surge Synth Team is happy to announce Surge 1.6.4!

Surge 1.6.4 fixes the final set of MPE features needed to have a full correct
MPE implementation. The synth now supports Release Velocity modulation, and
the sustain pedal works correctly in all channel mapping modes.

Accompanying those changes, Roger Linn has shared a collection of Surge
patches which show the power of Surge and his Linnstrument. You can see Roger
demonstrating the patches in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-mKyShEvKg&t=183s
and will find his presets in the library when you install 1.6.4.

But that's not all! 1.6.4 also contains a collection of EDM patches and wavetables
from producer and new contributor Damon Armani, changes to the distortion effect,
fixes a collection of small bugs in the UI, and improves error reporting in cases
where something goes wrong. And finally we've started a YouTube channel where
we will collect and occasionally post videos about Surge.

1.6.4 is our last release of 2019. As always, please share bug reports on our
GitHub or Slack. And finally, hope you and yours have a safe, peaceful, and musical
new year.

Thank you very much indeed for everyone's hard work! You won't get rich but surely covered in glory and gratitude.
If it were easy, anybody could do it!

Thanks all! Just an FYI - we have a report that the installers aren’t working properly in macOS Catalina. I have been hold off on the upgrade until I shipped 1.6.4 but will upgrade and try and fix it in the next couple of days, so we may have a Catalina only 1.6.4.1 before the New Years. For now, along with many other music software folks it seems, I suggest you don’t upgrade. If you do upgrade there’s a prescription where you can git clone the contents which are misinstalled. But that’s not great obviously.

Here's the prescription if you are on Catalina

We released 1.6.4.1 this morning. 1.6.4.1 is the same synth engine as 1.6.4, but we have resolved the macOS Catalina Install bug which was identified (literally) as we were finishing up the 1.6.4 release. We also renamed and expanded a couple of the new content packs and fixed a couple of minor graphics glitches we caught. Especially if you installed 1.6.4 on a systen which was recently upgraded to Catalina, we recommend you install 1.6.4.1. Have fun!

You're setting the bar pretty high for both commercial and freeware developers 8)
Looking forward to Surge in the coming months and years :hyper:
