UPDATE 4/12/18: Here are the final release installers!
Thanks everyone for testing and providing such awesome feedback - this release version is miles better than the late beta thanks to you all!

Notes:

1) I'm still updating the main website, but this is the version that will be going live!

Thanks all for your patience waiting for this - it's been a much longer journey than originally anticipated. Happy beyond words to have this almost ready for a proper release!

Tooltip issues.
Sometimes it blinks for a split second when arriving on a control, only to disappear again.
Screenshot shows the usual behavior.

Yeah, tooltips will disappear if a higher priority thread steals mouse focus. It's outside of the scope of a plugin to deal with that, sadly. Thanks for the feedback!

Hm, not sure, other plugins using tooltips have no problems with that. This might be a JUCE thing...

Yeah these knobs look much better than those in Thermionik. But buttons need more work to match them :)


Also, knobs need to be faster. Currently they need way too much mouse movement to go from minimum to maximum. Smaller knobs are actually worse than big ones.

Also the font used here is really not readable very well:

Same font used in dropdown menus... doesn't look good. :( Also using dark blue for "currently selected menu entry" is really not a good choice, as you can't really see anything?

Wow, this is also a sound generator! Without any audio going into the plugin, tweaking Threshold and Mix produces glitchy/buzzy sound. I'm guessing this needs more smoothing applied, or something? Also, setting Quality to 4 or 5 creates a constant square wave sound with no audio input.

at my day job, i've worked with guys from Australia, who didn't have bugs in their internal bug tracker - they had "surprise features" :D

To be fair, it's not an issue I can recreate even on the same host, or any other. I just know that it is, in theory, possible, and that the JUCE team has consistently passed the buck on issues like this for years, FWIW.

Which buttons are bothering you, specifically?

PS - Thermionik will be getting its own separate redesign.

Still adjusting a few knob tapers before release. This isn't quite right yet!

Still making some font tweaks, and that blue is not an intended color. Sorry about that!
