RS-Met updates Straightliner to v0.7
2nd July 2008
RS-Met has updated Straightliner (public beta/demo) to version 0.7.
- Sustain now works correctly.
- Info-field at the bottom replaces popup help.
- Detuning in Hz per oscillator.
- More filter types implemented.
- Some efficiency optimizations in the DSP and GUI code.
- Support of microtuning (this implementation is preliminary as it supports only a proprietary XML based tuning file format, .tun support is scheduled for the final version).
- More presets, more waveforms (which are now released under the terms of the creative commons license - see sample folder for details).
- XML patch format changed: The former 'MakeUp' parameter for the Moogish Lowpass was replaced by 'MakeUpByGain' because a new 'MakeUpBoost' parameter was introduced (this new parameters compensates for low frequency losses at high resonance by means of a low boost shelving filter before the overall make-up gain takes place, leading to a less distorted and sometimes fatter sound).
Note 1: The change in the patch format will break preset compatibility to earlier versions. To make the preset (or a state recalled by the host) sound as before, you will need to manually adjust the MakeUp-Gain parameter - otherwise, the old preset will usually sound weaker/thinner than before.
Note 2: Because this beta (which is to be considered as demo version) is already pretty close to the final release version, demo-restrictions were introduced. These are:
- After 20 minutes of use, the output is muted - you need to reload the plugin to get sound out of it again.
- Total recall (state saving/restoring) by the host is disabled (but the internal preset management is fully functional).
