I can wait a while longer for 2.5 myself if it gives Urs more ample time to get the modifications to the filters dialed in just right, as well as any other enhancements (it seemed like there was a mention at some point about Urs having found an efficient means of giving the envelopes just a tad more "snap" or something along those lines, too). I think it's pretty cool that refinements in the actual sound of the instrument are being done, as well as the convenience features like the new browser.

Wonders Urs, wonders! :D The Vintage2 filter wav-file scared me to hell. :help:
And please don't forget to look into the Uhbik no-latency-option-not-working-or-does-it please? Would like to use them as live tweakers in serial.

Question about the new filters, modules and so on; will we be able to access also legacy filters while programming a new patch or will they only be automatically used for old patches without the ability to directly select them?

I think that the new features, originally thought as replacement for older "worse" ones, should have a different name, for example a trailing "+" or so... This way, old patches go on using their original modules, but who programs patches can choose between old and enhanced.

what do you think?

Thanks,

Hmmm, I think you'll still get the same sounds out of the new ones, but the knobs are scaled in a more convenient way, and aliasing might be reduced.

It's mostly simple things. For instance I think that the LP Allround has already got quite some resonance at zero settings. I guess I can tweak that to be less. And I think that I can open up some filters a bit more towards 20kHz.

We'll see. If a new algorithm is hilariously different the I'll make it an additional type.

And of course you can switch between 2.5+ mode and 2.x compatibility.

Everything was pretty far and finished when I decided to have a new installer to overcome certain issues with Vista. So I hired a developer to do an installer and he did a great job. Meanwhile I discovered some things that might need change (see "Zebra's biggest flaw" and imagine a feedback knob in Uhbik-G's ui). So I became a bit depressed about the new amount of work in front of me, and I got yet another nasty stye in my right eye, much like the pile of pus I had in my left one last year :x

Because I thought I couldn't work properly anyway (the antibiotics create a foggy film on the eye...), I dug up an old project of mine and moved it a bit into a different direction. Unfortunately that hooked me so much that I didn't sleep a lot in 4 weeks. It actually became the foundation of what's now known as "the ultimate time destruction device":

:o

Funnily it opened my eyes about some things that might be nice to have as modifications in
Zebra too. For instance, it's got a working Duophonic mode and two independent Glides. And an improved version of Zebra's "LP Vintage2" that can do this:

Which I think - after playing around a bit - is now a must have.

So please be patient for another couple of weeks... I promise that the wait is way more than just worth it!

:oops:

:D

;) Urs

P.S.: As of yesterday the pile of pus is pretty much gone. Vision is almost clear again and I guess I can go back to normal work soon!

:hail:

Urs you are Da BOSS!!

Seriously .. Thanks, and speedy recovery from your antibiotics.. Live yogurt is good at replacing your stomachs natural flora which the antibiotics will destroy :)

I havn't eaten antibiotics, they're in a cream that put in my eyes...

I've planned to do something for the flora in my intestine anyway, because it might be related to my heyfever and stuff. I have to wait till autumn though...
