Just curious, is there an ETA for the next SM2 release? I'm eager to see some of the issues with the current RC like the annoying "double mod matrix entry" bug fixed.

This. I've been away for a bit, not using SM a lot, but I'm already hyped up for the possibilities of SM3. Hurry up and take my money, Mr. B! :hihi:

From the release notes:

FIX: When SynthMaster is rendering offline, program change messages should be processed syncronously
FIX: BT Silence waveform is not loaded correctly, causing clipping issues for the presets that use it
FIX: SynthMaster crashes when image files defined in skin definitions don't exist
FIX: Number of waveforms/wavetables is limited to 16384
FIX: When switching presets, SynthMaster might crash
FIX: Curve view mouse wheel increment is incorrect
FIX: Mod Matrix Curve view doesn't handle transparent backgrounds
FIX: Compression view might cause SynthMaster to crash because of uninitialized variables

Thanks.
And I speak for myself.
I like to see the release notes before I download to see if for me it is worthwhile to download and install.
Had issues unzipping the mac version. Redownloading to see if it was just a bad download.


I assume this isn't expected to fix the issue myself and someone else reported above with no presets in the windows version being visible beyond the selected one.

Hi Bulent,
no idea what you did but now all wavetables work without problems. SM 2.9 does not crash any more when importing the wavetables.
Thank you for your commitment to solve the problem.

cheers

I'm gonna have to turn off the selection of individual wavetable waveforms as single cycles though, the menus on Windows can not handle so many items.... Once we have our own waveform/wavetable selection dialog done, this issue will be resolved...

Cool, didn't know a custom selection dialog was planned! Just in case you're not already going to, can you please make it so the menu path to the currently selected waveform/table is marked? Sometimes I want to select the waveform that's used in a specific preset and I have trouble finding where it is in the menu.

Yes that was my plan as well, to show the path to waveform

I always like the Organ potential of Synthmaster, it would be cool if someday you would release something like an OrganMaster. A plugin dedicated to organ, from vintage Hammond to FM and imaginative additive organ sound. The engine is already there, just an organ type of interface with drawbars and a little tweak here and there for an authentic tone. I prefer the character of the Synthmaster organ even compared to some dedicated plugin, with such a flexible engine it's easier to get the right sound. Especially if V3 has an improved additive engine and an additional rotary/tube overdrive.
