RS-Met updates Straightliner beta to v0.6.5 and releases MIDI Monitor v0.5


RS-Met has updated Straightliner beta to version 0.6.5 and released a new free VST plug-in for Windows - MIDI Monitor (v0.5).

Straightliner v0.6.5 changes:


  • Preset was not remembered between GUI closing/re-opening - fixed.
  • Clicks on note-off when 'Level by velocity' was nonzero - fixed.
  • Responds to sustain-pedal now.
  • Responds to all-notes-off now.
  • Automation via MIDI has been implemented (based on MIDI learn and setting lower/upper controller limits).
  • Shape slider is grayed out where it does not apply.
  • Behaviour of sliders changed (right click opens MIDI automation context menu instead of resetting the value to default - reset to default is now via ctrl-click (unfortunately, it grabs keyboard focus then as well - so consider this as preliminary)).
  • More presets, more waveforms.


  • On load of a new waveform, the waveform display didn't reflect M/S and pan settings - fixed.

Envelope generators:

  • Levels > 2 were not shown in the sliders - fixed.
  • Sometimes the grids were shown although grid-buttons were unpressed - fixed.
  • There was no loop, when the loop end was the very last breakpoint - fixed.
  • Important parts of the envelope generator re-programmed (hopefully for the better).
  • Tweaking the 'Time Scale' parameter during holding a note is now directly reflected in the sound (well, when is hits the next breakpoint at least).

MIDI Monitor v0.5

MIDI Monitor is a plugin which shows you the incoming MIDI messages. Because some hosts treat instrument- and effect-plugIns differently (and do not allow plugging one kind of plugin into a slot of a different kind), there is an 'instrument' and an 'effect' version of the plugin to make it pluggable everywhere. The MIDI-events are passed through unchanged, the same holds for any incoming audio signal.
