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.
- 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.
