KarmaFX Synth Modular v1.04 and Plugin Pack v2.1 released


KarmaFX has updated KarmaFX Synth Modular to v1.04 and KarmaFX Plugin Pack to v2.1. The updates mainly contain bugfixes although a couple of new features have been added to the Synth and a fresh install is required. Synth Modular price has been adjusted to take into account the recent rise in the US dollar.

KarmaFX Synth Modular v1.04 changes:

  • Added Kybd tracking support to parametric filter (in lowpass, highpass, bandpass and notch mode).
  • Replaced random waveform in LFO with one that has 1 step-change per period unlike old random that does 16.
    Old random has been renamed to 'Random16'.
  • Added right click volume-range option (+6dB (default), +12dB or +24dB) to output module.
  • Added Clk option to Envelope and Step modules.
  • Added Linear, Cubic and Hermite curve modes to Envelope module.
  • Sampler now also imports loop info from .wav files if available.
  • Added limited support for .sfz soundfont import in Sampler.
  • Updated and added a few new patches. Changed almost all patches to be tuned in C. [requires fresh install]
  • GUI: Display in Sampler, Envelope, Additive, Pad, Step and Pattern can now be scrolled and zoomed using mouse wheel.
  • GUI: Envelope and Step displays can now be zoomed/scrolled vertically by holding shift and using mouse wheel.
  • GUI: Envelope control points now auto-snap to zero amplitude.
  • GUI: Sustain markers now change color when selected/dragged + Added extra bottom handle for easier editing.
  • GUI: Added waveform save option to Pad module.

  • GUI: Created new default skin. Old skin is still there but now known as 'Classic'. Blue skin is now included with the demo, whereas Synchro skin has been removed from the demo to save bandwidth.
  • GUI: Envelope curves can now be flipped by double right-clicking.
  • GUI: Added Invert option to right click menu in Additive/Pad modules.
  • Bugfix: Patching modulator to ADSR could make the synth crash due to a compiler error. Fixed.
  • Bugfix: Frequency snap rounding error: Turning the control knob to -63 would set the semitone to -11 when it should be -12. Same for octave and cents. Fixed.
  • Bugfix: When creating new banks a "recreating index.txt" message would appear since v1.02. Fixed.
  • Bugfix: Tempo sync could occasionally be off by one sample causing sync to slowly drift. Fixed.
  • Bugfix: VST Host tempo is now validated before use [requires fresh install].
  • Bugfix: Step, Envelope and Parametric filter modules didn't utilize their entire display area. Fixed.
  • Bugfix: Zooming and scrolling a sample in the sampler could be jerky. Fixed.
  • Bugfix: Suddenly loosing mouse capture could result in hanging menus. Fixed.
