We are close to a new stable release. There are some interesting changes in the workflow and many fixes and improvements. But not really big changes. We are trying to get a solid stable release before going deeper on a refactorization to improve the code architecture.
Here is the updated staging-2109 SD image:
Or you could try to update, specially if you already are in testing. If you have a stable that you use for music, consider burning a new sd-card.
For updating :
- Access webconf => software => repositories
- Check advanced
- Select “staging-2109” on all repositories.
- Update Software
Good luck … and good connection!!!
New SFZ engine, sfizz. Is it a good replacement for inuxsampler? This is the question
Bye Bye internal FXs on fluidsynth. Welcome smoother fluidsynth! Specially when using many channels.
Controller groups. It allows having the engine’s controllers grouped in a meaning and useful way. No more navigate the controller screens looking for the parameter you want. Currently only a few engines have the grouping info, but we will be adding the rest in a few weeks or months.
BTW, we changed the instrument control screen workflow. Like that:
- short-select => Enter controller screen selection mode
- bold-select => Layer options
- long-back => Sequencer
- Long-learn => Audio Levels (ALSA mixer)
Virtual favorites bank. If you have favorites for an instrument, then you will see a favorites bank on first place. You still can use short-learn for favorites.
Snapshot options. When clicking a snapshot from the list, you will get am options menu with new interesting possibilities like:
- load layers
- load sequences
- set program
Zynthian UI on VNC
When adding a FX to the chain, show FX presets if available.
Improve layer chain management. Now you can replace the synth engine or the first FX on a synthless layer.
Improve MIDI-learn touch action
- LAYER_CONTROL [i]
- And more…
Customized controller maps for FluidSynth (SF2 soundfonts). Give a try to the new included soundfonts, specially this one:
The CV/Gate interface implementation is complete. 4 x CV-IN & 4 x CV-OUT, although not perfect yet, specially scaling and need lot of testing with different devices.
The select widget has been removed from a few menus.
You will see the intro screen until the UI is displayed.
And many many bug-fixes and little adjustments. And probably a bunch of new bugs, hopefully less and smaller.
And that’s all!
Please, report issues here or open a task on the issue tracker if you are sure you have a bug. And check if already reported, please.
