MXXXCore changes

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

11.06 changes

  • Added Detector input parameter to MSpectralDynamics (including MXXX), which provides various ways to process the input signal based on both the input and side-chain at the same time.
  • Various optimizations and performance enhancements.
  • Horizontal bar graph units are now aligned to the right for better clarity.
  • Changing one graph point's smoothing / curvature now applies that to all points in the selection.
  • Added Enable MIDI program change switch to MIDI settings useful to disable program change processing completely.
  • Buttons are now slightly colorized too.
  • Added Offline subscription update feature, which lets you update the subscription status in the plugins even for computers disconnected from the internet.
  • Fix: Cancelling Custom shape edit in any oscillator would revert to the initial state when opening the plugin instead of the previous state.
  • Fix: Updating subscription licence while not connected disabled the subscription even if there was still time.
  • Fix: Scrollbars could do page up/down on both mouse press and release.

11.05 changes

  • Released MAutoStereoFix plugin, a unique stereo signal fixing solution, free for MMixingFXBundle, MTotalFXBundle and MCompleteBundle.
  • Added 2 different 6dB/oct crossovers to all multiband plugins, MBassador, MRotary and Crossover module in MXXX.
  • Holding Shift while pressing the Paste button under A-H now allows you to replace all A-H slots with settings from the clipboard.
  • Added Note index (on & off) MIDI virtual controllers which react to note number being pressed/released and can be used as controllers, to switch presets etc.
  • Added Post-processing section to Signal generator / Advanced, which contains additional scale, offset and wrap transformations.
  • Online preset exchange no longer creates subfolders to make things cleaner.
  • Improved super-resolution feature in analyzers, which now avoids modifying the analysis slope.
  • Fix: MultiParameter/Modulator menu / Reset did reset the entire subsystem, but didn't update the actual editor.
  • Fix: MultiParameters on the edit screen didn't have additional text editors (e.g. piano for frequency values) on the edit screen.
  • Fix: Adding a parameter to a modulator/multiparameter/midi/learn would initially show no parameters in the root folder and you'd need to click a different folder and back.
  • Fix: Parameter lock when randomizing didn't work in VST3.
  • Fix: Waveform display could fill some of the waves despite there was no reason to.
  • Fix: Changing latency didn't update latency compensation for channel modes, smart bypass and other advanced subsystems.
  • Fix: Time graph settings presets didn't update resolution after loading.
  • Fix: Plugins could crash if style resize factor became 0 somehow (it is unclear how that happened).
  • Fix: Multiband plugins didn't have presets for individual bands.
  • Fix: Trying to display help for a menu didn't work and caused problems, so it is now disabled.
  • Fix: A/B button didn't work if the initial slot was B until a different one was clicked.

11.04 changes

  • Highly improved installation speed.
  • Fix: Plugins could crash in certain situations when displaying graphs with time smart units.
  • Fix: Knobs were moving 1 pixel up/down along with rotation.

  • Default settings improved to a new more efficient and reliable method.
  • Batch processing WAV files now keeps all custom metadata.
  • Equalizers do not display analyzer peaks for both input & output anymore (when Track peaks is enabled), since they are the same and cause blurring.
  • Improved unofficial support for Linux via Wine.
  • Fix: Loudness range meters didn't show a correct text value.

11.02 changes

NOTE: A more efficient preset encoding is now used. Backwards compatibility is certainly maintained, but new presets won't be readable by older versions.

  • Released MFreeformPhase, a powerful utility which lets you shift phase of individual frequencies, which is completely free.
  • Released MTurboCompMB, a multiband version of MTurboComp (without the access to edit screen of individual subcomps). It comes free with MTurboComp.
  • Released MWobblerMB, a multiband version of MWobbler (without the access to edit screen of individual wobblers). It comes free with MWobbler.
  • MAutoAlign highly improved. It now features a unique spectral phase compensation, which can actually adjust phase of individual frequencies to minimize cancellations. Detection engine highly improved, it is now searching for all possible combinations of input tracks and selects the best one with minimum cancellations. Cancellation analyser has been removed due to low reliability.
  • Introduced subscription licencing for the new MCompleteBundle, which includes every plugin we release and will release.
  • Algorithm for delays with modulation (via modulator) has been highly optimized in MDelayMB, MBitFun, MBitFunMB, MGranularMB, MReverb, MReverbMB (includinng MXXX). Note that change of sound for quick modulations is expected.
  • Band Dry parameter in MDelayMB now defaults to silence, which is compliant with version 10 and makes more sense due to the global Dry parameter.
  • Colors for individual timegraphs for each band in multiband plugins can no longer be adjusted to make sure they match the color of the band.
  • Added Input and Dynamics by fundamental switches to dynamic equalizer bands.
  • Scale is now directly automatable in MAutoPitch and shape in MWaveShaper even without automation compatibility mode.

  • Switcher controls now set default value via right click.
  • Band colors for multiband plugins have been changed to make them easier to recognize.
  • Ctrl + click on the copy button under the A-H presets now stores the settings in a file, which is sometimes more practical than clipboard and avoids problems with limited clipboard size on some operating systems. To load the settings use ctrl + Paste or drag & drop the settings onto the plugin.
  • Fix: Any connection to the internet didn't work on OSX Sierra due to a bug regarding resolving local names in OSX.
  • Fix: Some multiband plugins initially opened in size bigger than necessary.
  • Fix: Opening a preset not created using an active preset would leave the currently selected active preset selected, which could lead to a confusion later.
  • Fix: Having multiple tab-sets on easy screen would make some of them unnecessary high.
  • Fix: Changing presets in PT could cause multiparameters to "process" the associated parameters, which is generally fine, but in older presets it could cause probles.
  • Fix: AU plugins didn't compensate for latency when bypass was enabled.
  • Fix: Loading FLAC files without length metatag didn't work.

11.01 changes

  • 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.

11.00 changes

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.

  • Fix: Randomizing multiparameter banks could sometimes mess up contents of modulator windows if displayed.
  • Fix: Diff feature wasn't working properly in some channel modes.
  • Fix: Using VST with another interface at the same time would cause VST to report surround capabilities even if the surround hasn't been activated, which caused problems with some hosts (FL Studio).
  • Fix: Text input for modulators/multiparameters controlling other multiparameters might have not worked.

  • Added ability to make tabs on easy screens by setting Group parameter of the first multiparameter in each group in this format: "tabname#groupname".
  • Batch processing via WAV button now allows selecting multiple files at once. Drag & drop onto the button is still provided of course.

  • Fix: MIDI learn was working even after the MIDI settings have been closed.
  • Fix: A crash could occur in relation with time graphs in some rare circumstances.
  • Fix: Text edit windows featuring a piano keyboard or some other extension could have been displayed partly out of the screen.

  • Fix: Oscillator's step sequencer editors didn't paint the "zero" at the same level as the oscillators themselves, which lead to a confusion.

10.05 changes

Note: Backward compatibility has not been fully maintained for MConvolutionMB - settings are remembered properly, but automation parameters have been removed and replaced with multiparameters (via which you can automate anything).

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. The should be no need to roll back to older versions, but it is an important information anyways.

  • When searching through presets the total number of presets are displayed along with the number of matching presets.

  • Fix: Some controls had a help button despite there was no help available.
  • Fix: Randomizing graphs in graph settings could lead to a crash after subsequential operations.
  • Fix: Edit screen changes for TurboComp in MXXX could be overwritten by the active preset's multiparameters.

10.00 changes

Note: Automation of the dynamic gain in MAutoVolume has been removed. This feature is by definition degrading audio quality and causes numerous problems with different hosts and has been added just because the Waves' plugin has that. But in order to minimize problems and deliver the top audio quality we want, the feature has been removed. It's recommended to automate output gain instead for example.

  • Added free MAGC plugin, included in MXXX.
  • Added offline processing support for maximizing quality when rendering - the plugins can variate smart interpolation level and upsampling factor.
  • Added full touch-screen support on Windows for up to 16 fingers/devices.

  • Added Simulate program change via controller feature to MIDI settings.
  • Changing multiparameter order now keeps associations for multiparameters associated to other multiparameters.
  • Peak meters now show "-inf" under -200dB.
  • Fix: Time sync in text edit might not have worked properly if there were plugins without sync instantiated.
  • Fix: Dragging an envelope point followed by another 2 points where one was locked could lead to all points locked.
  • Fix: Lock didn't work in multiband plugins when randomizing/loading separate bands.
  • Fix: Default focus was on multiparameters, which could cause immediate open of a multiparameter window after opening the plugin by enter in some hosts.

  • Cursors now follow HiDPI/Retina.
  • Convolution IR library extended.
  • Fix: Sync wasn't available from a few more time parameters' text edit.

9.21 changes

Note: Backward compatibility hasn't been 100% followed for MXXX. All settings will load correctly, however host automation wouldn't be retained if you automated something else than multiparameters (probably modulators). This is very unlikely, so you shouldn't have any problems.

  • All parametric equalizers now feature L/R (or M/S) processing for all bands.
  • Added transformation enable button into modulator and multiparameter editors.
  • Fix: MMultiAnalyzer could crash when changing time graph settings after changing tabs.
