Hi everyone, just a quick not that Waveform 11.1.17 is now available as public beta which addresses some of the issues flagged with the new engine in 11.1.16.

Code: Select all

- Presets:          Fixed an issue where some presets could be duplicated on disk
- Engine:           [Experimental] Fixed a problem where the engine wouldn't stop if "Run audio engine when stopped" was disabled
- Engine:           [Experimental] Fixed a problem where frozen tracks couldn't be rendered[code]

Quick question: Is there a way to rename audio files from within Waveform (without using the export or render function)? I'd like to be able to rename clips in an edit and have the name reflected both in the filename and in the edit itself. Rendering a clip changes its filename, but then the clip becomes "rendered clip". The export function is also time consuming for batch renaming.

Related FR for Rendered tracks. It'd be preferable if rendered tracks kept the color and name of the track they were rendered from. I have a solid template with lots of colors and symbols, but it's broken up by a ton of grey "Rendered Track 59"s as I render tracks to audio.

There's an option General Behaviour to rename the source file when the clip is renamed. Be careful with it though if you have split the clip up into multiple smaller clips as the file will be named to the last one that you renamed.

Hey! I see Linux VST3 in 11.1.x beta. And no news about that.

Unfortunately JUCE6 has something broken with old VSTs at this moment. For example all u-he plugins and xhip doesn't draw UI at all.

Might not be the right place to ask.
FR: would it be possible to add a level meter strip to the audio clip panel? preferably just above the Gain control slider. Cheers

bug report: latest version (11.1.16 and 11.1.17) are not running the SOUL patches again. They just display a forever loading circle...

Can you give me a bit more info about that: i.e.
- which patch you were trying?
- do any patches work?
- which OS are you on?

I'm about to do a big update for SOUL on Waveform anyway to add a bunch of new features, so I can check this out at the same time, but would be useful to know what to test.

Just for mention that SOUL still not work in Linux. Though the library is loaded and its possible to add patch's path (from examples), the scanning gives nothing.

Hi Jules,
I tried it on a selection of patches. I had already installed all of the patches from the playground website and been using them successfully in previous versions of Waveform. When I updated to Waveform 11.1.16 Beta, I noticed that the release notes mentioned an earlier version of the betas (11.1.14 or 11.1.15 ???) had been updated with SOUL 0.9.49. So I tried loading the same patches I had been using successfully in the last official release of Waveform, and none of them seemed to work (i admit a did not try ALL of them, but I tried several and they all went into a infinite load.)

Then I went to GitHub and downloaded all the latest stuff and used "soul create MonoSynth --synth --output MonoSynth" to build the MonoSynth as shown in your video. These files were correctly written. But when I used "soul play MonoSynth\Monosynth.soulpatch", it showed the exact behavior as Waveform did... an infinite loop with rotating circle to indicate loading.

The soul tool version from the GitHub which I am using is the same version shown as included in the Waveform beta I am using (0.9.49).

I then tried playing several of the examples from the Github download and they showed the same problem. I tried these patches in both Waveform beta 11.1.16 and the SOUL tool 0.9.49 from the CMD window.

Example patches which I know failed were SOUL-909, PadSynth, SineSynth, Delay and ElecBass1, but I'm pretty sure that none of them work.

I am using Windows 10.

OK, ta for the info. If all the patches were failing then I guess there was some sort of build problem in that version. I'm working on this today so will double-check with a few patches, and the next release should be better!

Unfortunately, the same issue with the Insert persists. Nothing works in terms of playback so long as the insert is active. If I disable it, it all works. No issues with the insert in the release version of Waveform.

I'll roll back to the release version again.

Hi Jules,
I just tried the latest drop of the soul tool (0.9.55) and all is fixed! Thank you. Looking forward to the next drop of Waveform including this now. Great stuff! :tu:
