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).
