discoDSP updates HighLife Open Source to R3


discoDSP has announced that the open source version of HighLife has been updated to R3.

The SFZ Parser was thoroughly redesigned and has the following new features:

  • Sample path can be relative or absolute to any location on the storage media.
  • Path names may contain blank spaces.
  • <group> header can now be used.
  • <key> opcode is now recognized.
  • Comments can be put on the same line with opcodes.

As a side effect it should be very easy now to include further sfz opcodes and headers.

Fixes and additions:

  • The following additional zone parameters can now be modified from the zone editor panel: root key, low key, high key, low velocity, high velocity.
  • A couple of wave files that were refused by the previous version will now load fine.
  • Loopinfo will not be used if loopstart > loopend (workaround for some nonstandard wav editors)
  • When creating loop crossfades Highlife now implements a equal power crossfade instead of the previously used equal gain (linear) crossfade.
  • Highlife won't crash anymore whenever a sample can't be opened. Instead an error message is displayed and the load process is reverted.
  • Added Open Source Logo.
  • About box (Click on the Highlife Logo to open).
