Here you can find list of changes for the product MAutoPitch Note that we use kernel version numbers, hence most product do not start with version 1.00 and all effects have always the same version number, similarly both MDrummer Small and Large have the same version number.
- Added Visible switch to multiparameters, which controls if it will be displayed on the Easy screen.
- Added Lazy sync option to MRhythmizer and MRhythmizerMB (enabled by default), which solves synchronization issues for buggy hosts (known are Logic and ProTools 10), which do not report accurate position information to plugins.
- Fix: Spectral plugins could crash when inserting a new instance in some cases when default settings have been defined.
- Fix: Opening a plugin with Easy screen but no active preset selected (via presets or previous projects) and clicking Reload would lead to a crash.
Version 11 may not be fully backwards compatible with version 10. The problems should be negligible and here is the list.Plugin renaming
There should be no problems with most hosts, but some of the plugins have been renamed, and it's the host's responsibility to switch to the new plugin names. If your host fails to do that, try letting it rescan the plugins and restart it. It that won't help and your older projects won't load properly, please inform both us and your host developer. In these cases you can also keep version 10 installed along with version 11. Following name changes have been made:
- MLimiter -> MSaturator
- MDynamicsLimiter -> MLimiterX
- MEqualizerLinearPhase -> MEqualizerLP
- MAutoEqualizerLinearPhase -> MAutoEqualizerLP
- MMultiBand*** -> M***MB (for example, MMultiBandAutopan -> MAutopanMB)
Bundles have been renamed as well, to make the name reflect that the bundles contain effect only:
- MTotalBundle -> MTotalFXBundle
- MCreativeBundle -> MCreativeFXBundle
- MMasteringBundle -> MMasteringFXBundle
- MMixingBundler -> MMixingFXBundle
- MFreeEffectsBundle -> MFreeFXBundle
All licences have been upgraded in your accounts of course.Automation
Version 11 comes up with fully restructuralized automation parameter system, which should improve performance and compatibility with problematic hosts. If you have been using automation in your older projects, please go to Settings in any of the plugins and enable Automation compatibility mode for V10. Then restart your host and your projects should load without problems. For future's sake it is recommended to have this option disabled however.Parameter ranges
We also decided to extend range of a few parameters. The settings will load without problems, but if you have been modulating/automating them, you will need to readjust the range. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
- MSaturatorMB had a Ceiling parameter ranging from -24dB to 0dB, which was replaced by Output gain ranging from -24dB to +24dB.
- MDelayMB maximum delay has been extended from 500ms to 10 seconds.

Note: While backward compatibility is strictly maintained, in order to provide higher multiparameter bank mode accuracy, the new format is different from the previous one, hence settings stored with the new versions won't be loaded properly with previous versions.

Attention! 100% backward compatibility is not guaranteed due to following changes:
- Modulator envelope audio detector has been completely change and is not compatible with the previous one. Modulator follower RMS, Attack and Release ranges have been extended therefor you will experience compatibility issues if you modulated/automated these follower parameters. Stored settings shall be recalled correctly though.
- Modulator frequency now ranges to 100Hz even for plugins previously not supporting this and having HiSpeed option instead. The plugins shall load the settings correctly, however if you used automation/modulation, resulting values will be different!
- MAutoDynamicEq and MDynamicEq now has RMS and Hold features, both default to 2ms. The purpose is to minimize potential distortion. The differences should be negligible.
All previous versions are available from our download archive.
- MeldaProduction Plugin Kernel technlogy, which means lower memory & CPU usage (often -50%), faster loading and much more. The more MeldaProduction plugins you use, the more they can share the resources and optimize your CPU usage. The plugins now communicate with each other, use advanced smart resource sharing algorithms, all of them (almost 80 plugins) fit in a 100MB installer (including all resources, both 32-bit and 64-bit), and for a complete installation they take just about 100MB for both 32-bit & 64-bit, VST & VST3 & AU & AAX.
- New smart interpolation kernel, which smoothes parameter changes via GUI/modulation/automation/MIDI to get near-perfect audio quality (if physically possible), sample accuracy and minimum CPU requirements.
- Added smart bypass cross-fading and full bypass latency handling, which ensures bypass will always be in time seemless operation for a perfect comparison workflow.
- Modulators heavily redesigned - added an extremely powerful metering system to follower & envelope modes, Envelope audio-detector mode has been completely redesigned to provide a great response and versatility, added pitch & transient detection mode for follower/envelope mode in modulators.
- Added global Undo/Redo features storing all automatable parameters, presets and randomizer. Note that certain "deep" non-automatable parameters are not available for undo.
- New Online Preset Exchange accessible directly from each preset window, which now submits one of your presets in exchange for the whole online database, to support community preset sharing. This replaces the previous preset exchange, which didn't work simply because most users didn't submit any presets. Now you have to submit a preset each time you want to download the preset database. The exchange is not monitored anymore, since we assume you will be submitting only reasonable presets. Only commercial users can use this feature. Please submit only reasonable presets or you will be banned.

Attention ProTools users: Last fix for ProTools caused some compatibility issues for
MStereoProcessor, MStereoSpread, MStereoGenerator, MStereoScope and all surround versions of other plugins.
It is imperative to immediately update to 8.09 if you were using these plugins and configurations
If you used 8.08 in your projects, 8.09 (and any newer version) won't be opened by ProTools. So you have 2 options:
A) Use the preset system to manually transfer your settings to 8.09.
B) Keep using 8.08. In that case you won't be able to upgrade until Avid implements a smarter system for identifying plugins.
We are very sorry for inconvenience.
