Full release notes here: https://www.hauptwerk.com/download/8175/

Lots of improvements, but the highlights:
  • Completely new audio engine, with a mixing solution that allows divisions and pipes positionable in 3D space, with multi-channel output to an insane degree (512 channels for the standalone version. 16 if using with VST/AU Link)
  • Higher performance engine allowing greater polyphony.
  • Built-in 4-channel convolution reverb.
  • Improved realism due to higher resolution processing of the wind supply model, pipe flow turbulence, swell boxes, and tremulants.
  • The Aladdin HASP protection system has been replaced with iLok, and can use either cloud or dongle licensing.
  • New subscription model, but perpetual licensing is still available.
  • Catalina support.
Upgrades for existing users of v2-v4 Advanced are $199, for the next couple weeks or so.
