Note: The beta version posted below will be fully functional till the end of 2016, using the beta serial number. The final version available from our website doesn't take this serial.
Here we go for a new (final?) iteration of public beta testing for Repro-1!
Although we have been overwhelmed by feedback from the first public beta, we have not rested until we addressed most of the remaining issues:
- CPU-usage has been reduced by more than 30% on average, even up to 60% for CPU-hungry patches
- a "CPU Saver" mode (as opposed to "HQ") reduces this by another 40% or so, a "Sleepy" mode reduces the cost while Repro-1 is idle
- 400+ presets were added
- lots of bugs and niggles fixed (see changelog below)
So we're on track for a release candidate! We'll be spending the next two weeks polishing and fixing stuff so that we can release this on December 6th.
Until then, enjoy… and let us know what you think,

Serial Number: "V9574-NOL2Q-FUIUA-GQG8" <- only works for the user name above!
This serial will be valid for until the end of 2016 (beta versions only).
If you already own a license for the full version you can keep using that one. Just download the version and install.
If you can't wait and/or if you wish to take advantage of the introductory offer, here's a link to buy Repro-1 from our shop:
Buy Repro-1 for 69$ (+ VAT/Sales Tax where applicable) (final price will be 99$ (+ VAT/Sales Tax where applicable), from its official release on December 6th)

remaining issues and notes:
* Renoise - project with many instances can lead to CPU overload on first start
* Sonar - if you experience a crash with the VST3 version, Sonar needs a VS++ 2015 update
* Windows - gamma settings incorrect after change (reopen GUI to fix)
