Hi DD, .

When I strike a key repeatedly, i can overload easily the CPU because it will keep sounding as long as Release allows.
Also, when i hit a chord, it will have the same behaviour and when stealing voices start, the sound turns weak & thin.
It's easy to overload an i7 4790 CPU hitting chords because of this. Comparing with Surge, it requires 10X CPU because of voice stacking...

I've found no preset manager, I suppose Deducktion one is to be used.
And some overdrive would be useful.

Reducktion has been updated to version - this bug-fix release addresses problems with 'stuck' notes in the sequencer.

Hi, in the 32-bit-version, with preset "LD Buzzy Lead", when pressing D2 (50), there is a loud beep! I tested this with Cantabile 2.0, Tobybear Minihost and Vsthost (Seib). This does not happen with the 64-bit-version.

Thanks for reporting; this should be fixed in version

Reducktion has been updated to version - this fixes a bug in the sequencer where a note would be skipped if played against a step with a velocity of 0.

Hi @swatwork. If you are the Coder...Respect, nice Plugins, Reducktion as well very interessting.

I create a some Skins/ Themes for Reducktion.

The Problem seems that i can not just copy all Files into a new Folder an change Background Image and Theme.txt.

If i select the new Theme, that was shown very wel in the Plugin, i get a distorted Default-theme.

What i need to do to not modify the existing Theme-Folder, wich is working perfect for new Themes.

Hi, I'm using version.

Velocity value is not recognized i'm using it in Studio One v 5.5, VST2 64-bit version.
It seems not a DAW bug, as Deducktion reacts properly to velocity changes.

Performance issues seem to be fixed, at least now that i have a Ryzen 5 5600 machine. 1.5% Thread/voice at full load (3 osc Max Unison + Noise + 2 filters + All FX).

Reducktion has been updated to version - this fixes two bugs: the LFOs now work correctly at sample rates other than 44.1k and the 'legato' retrig-mode is now applied correctly in the sequencer when step lengths are set to 100.
