One more ...

If I click on any of the modulator tabs a menu with the individual mods (e.g. LFO 1..4) opens - would be nice to be able to close that menu by clicking on any of the other mod tabs.
So, say I want to use SLFO 4 and click on the SLFO tab and the menu opens but suddenly I rather want a VLFO instead - I first have to close the SLFO menu manually by either clicking on one of the choices or somewhere else on the screen. What about automatically closing any open mod menus if I click on any other tab. Hope that makes sense ...

Yes but that popup menu is controlled by the "operating system" :) anyhow, will look into how to improve the workflow. I might also add an option to go back to the previous style (all tabs displayed with < > arrows)

Also I would like to add that I'm using Windows 10 x64 when I experience the crashes. It happens whether I clean install or not, like it will crash right after I install while Reaper is loading and detecting any new plugins. I can usually load it after deleting the config file in the documents folder but if I delete an instance of the plugin and reload it will crash and keep crashing until I delete the config file again.

Well obviously something is different in your machine's config. I am working on bug fixes and hopefuly those might fix your crash as well. Our next build will be on Friday.

Triple check and make sure Synthmaster is gone completely from your machine before installing the beta, I had similar crashes with the released versions and tracked it down to SM files in my Documents folder.

Bulent, can you point out all the locations where Synthmaster may drop files? That might help in troubleshooting. I'd also consider this behavior a bug.

My Documents/Synthmaster -> this is the user specific folder for SynthMaster. Config, license key, presets, waveforms, samples etc go here.

Data Folder: This is the folder where all static data files/factory presets/skins etc go. It's usually c:\program files\kv331 audio\synthmaster

VST Folder: This is the folder for vst dll files (windows). It's usually c:\program files\vstplugins\kv331 audio

There are also temp files under

win: c:\users\public\public documents\synthmastertemp29
mac: /users/shared/synthmastertemp29

Awesome! Is it premature to ask when this will be out of beta?

So, found a not-so-fun bug. Using the Tranquil Blue skin, clicking on the "Presets" Tab will crash the DAW. Tested in Windows 10, 64-bit VST in the 64-bit versions of both FL Studio and Reaper. All the variants of the Default skin seem to work fine.

Same here (FL 12.5 x64 Win10). It doesn't ask me if I want to report the crash either.

I'm currently experiencing the same thing on FL with the Tranquil skin.

Crash reporting is Mac-only right now.
