Works fine under Cubase 7.5.10 64 Bit / Win7 64!

The only real problem is the latency issue. Looks like the latency is dependent on a) the sample length and b) the number of notes played. A short sample played monophonically works fine with low latency, but if I load a longer sample and play some chords, the latency rises to about 1 sec.

Apart from that, this plug-in is great fun!
I've been looking for something like this for years - thank you very much! :-)

Thanks, glad it works and you like it! :)

Liked the idea of it, really was excited to try it. Making instrument of anything the easiest way. Noticed some things/bugs: nasty clicks that usually appear when playing next note while still holding previous note or notes. That doesn't appear always but requires "special" techniques for playing. :)
Stability is good I guess.
Loads 24/16 bit wavs, mp3 too so that's all good.
Tuning is not always correct. It would be cool with tune knob, simple +/- in semitones for manual adjustment after analyzing. That would be really helpful and easier than finding with those 2 knobs that are already there
Analyze of files was quick. Tried a lot of files, even short loops. No problems with loading

So far I love this little thing, has so much potential. Thank you !

Tested in Reaper x64 on Win7 x64

Paraphrasis was updated to version 1.0.2! Note latency/CPU spikes issue fixed!

Download it here!


Version 1.0.3 is planned next week with minor issues fixed.

1.0.2 (Aug-09-2014)
- Fixed: Sound glitches when playing note repetitively (partials missing)
- Fixed: When note is finished (sample is done) CPU went high - MainStage
- Fixed: Reverse button position
- Fixed: Reverse button and status LED synchronisation
- Fixed: CPU went high when long sample was loaded and note was triggered.

Edit:
* Note: it seems that loooong analysis bug on Mac OS is fixed as well!

Cool that the latency thing is fixed, I don't need it for realtime, rather to process samples, but it made it hard to tell what was going on, downloading now.

Much better! It's the poor man's UVI workstation (which is free also, but huge and takes an installer).

Had a lot of fun with the updated version! Playability is much improved.

A release control or an envelope function would be a great addition. A lot of sounds sound cut off sharp when you release the key.

Hm... that is a second request for this feature (ADSR) within one day... Unfortunately I can not do it during KVRDC but I am going to implement it later :)

FLWrd wrote:The last one was 5 seconds. Then I went back to a sample folder with short samples, and loaded a very short one (just under .5s). And that went well. Analysis was over in a flash, and playable. Then I took one of double size (around 1s), and analysis was very quick too. Then I selected one of 1.5s, and analysis is taking over a minute now. These files came from a public source, so I can send them over if you want.
OK guys, this bug seems to be fixed in 1.0.2 as well!
