Hello all. In the grand old tradition of running public betas, early access to version 3.1 is now available.

This release does not have all that many additional user-level features, the most notable are
  • Native FLAC streaming
  • Native OGG streaming
  • Offline activation support
However, beneath the hood there are a number of changes, mainly to take advantage of new compiler features and produce a more stable, faster sampler. (Famous last words). In general, FFT-heavy code like the pitch/timeshift engine should be slightly faster.

For those who want to try the offline activation support, the URL to upload/download activation files is available at: https://www.tx16wx.com/offline-activation (not public yet).

If you find issues, please let me know. The builds will be updated periodically. (check the dates).

Happy sampling

Cool! Thank you! Could you tell me more about the offline activation support? Is this going back to a keyfile and getting rid of challenge/response (I hope)? :-)

Yes and no. It is still C/R + machine locked licence, but it is "manual" licence server connect. Basically you save an activation request from TX16Wx on the machine you want to run it on (presumably without internet access), move it to a networked machine, and upload it to a web form. You get back an activation response, which can be loaded into TX again, and acts as the "normal" C/R response.

@lalo - some sort of gdrive f**kery. I've made direct links available as a temporary workaround.

OK, that makes sense. Thank you! :-)
