MPowerSynth changes

Here you can find list of changes for the product MPowerSynth 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Added over 30 oscillator transformations along with the PWM for each oscillator. These are specially designed for modulating the oscillator response and includes several unique modes from PWM, sync, bending, AM, recursion...

8.10 changes

Attention! Backward compatibility is not guaranteed due to following changes:


1) Oscillator shape "saw" (between "rectangle" and "full saw") has been replaced by "rect-saw" as this makes more sense and avoids audio quality degradation due to eliminated DC offset.


2) Improved response of Reverb FX when predelay specified and source is highly on the right. Change has been made for the sake of better audio quality.
