rncbc.org has announced a new official beta release of the Vee One Suite version 0.8.2 of the old-school software instruments, for Linux.
The Vee One Suite are:
- synthv1 - a polyphonic subtractive synthesizer.
- samplv1 - a polyphonic sampler synthesizer.
- drumkv1 - a drum-kit sampler synthesizer.
All available in dual form:
- A pure stand-alone JACK client with JACK-session, NSM (Non session management) and both JACK MIDI and ALSA MIDI input support;
- A LV2 instrument plugin.
The common change-log for this second batch release goes as follows:
- A custom knob/spin-box behavioral option have been added: Configure/Knob edit mode, as to avoid abrupt changes upon editing values (still the default behavior) and only take effect (Deferred) when enter is pressed or the spin-box loses focus.
- The main GUI has been partially revamped, after replacing some rotary knob/dial combos with kinda more skeuomorphic fake-LED radio-buttons or check-boxes.
- A MIDI In (put) status fake-LED is now featured on the bottom-left status bar, adding up to eye-candy as usual (applies to all); also, each drum element key/sample now have their own fake-LED flashing on respective MIDI note-on/off events (applies to drumkv1 only).
- Alias-free/band-limited wave-table oscillators have been fixed to prevent cross-octave, polyphonic interference. (applies to synthv1 only).
- A brand new and specific user preference option is now available as Help/Configure.../Options/Use GM standard drum names (default being yes/true/on; applies to drumkv1 only).
