Hot on the heels of 8.0, we are happy to bring you a mostly-hotfixes 8.1 release. There’s a couple of tasty new features also. The full notes for 8.0 and 8.1 are in the usual place, with the new stuff & fixes for 8.1 also listed below.
MIDI port names for the Novation Launchpad Pro fixed, and believed
to work on all platforms, and with all versions of ALSA on
Linux. Earlier versions would fail to connect to the device
in most cases.
Varispeed dialog now allows control in percentage units in addition to
semitones & cents. The shuttle control also now remains in
sync with the actual transport speed.
Fix an issue where multichannel tracks would play in mono (#9483).
Prevent time domain (music/audio) confusion when trimming
audio & MIDI regions.
When drawing freehand velocity curves, if any MIDI notes are
selected, only those notes will be modified. This is extremely
useful for editing drum tracks.
Fix selection logic when middle-clicking on notes in a MIDI
track header keyboard. Middle click selects just that
note-number. Ctrl/Cmd-middle-click now toggles the selection
status of that note number. Shift-middle-click extends the
selected note numbers.
Fix duplicate close-session dialog on macOS.
Fix a missing label in the insert time dialog.
Fix a deadlock ("program freeze") when adjusting a region
Allow for bounces with specific source (file) and region
Include track name when consolidating ranges.
Fix potential for duplicated MIDI events with certain signal
Prevent crash with certain oddly-behaved VST3 plugins'
response to being asked "do you have an editor?"
Add MIDNAM file for Moog Subsequent 37.
Remove some cruft from build system scripts.
Build system tweak to accomodate newer versions of
I started using it. Its very good but a little sluggish compared to 8.0 on my computer running AVL 21.3.
The same session is using 10% more dsp and its showing disk too slow messages again at various times.
Great though, thank you.
if you select a bunch of notes for freehand drawing, the velocities of these notes are modified, but also the one under drawing starting position. So it’s easy to accidentally modify velocity of unwanted notes. I don’t know if I write understandably, so below is a gif:
This particular track has a single MIDI region with no layers, so is not stacked. The problem is that if you select notes for editing velocity (freehand or straight line), not only these notes are being modified, but also these where the line is starting from.
I think there’s a misunderstanding of how the freehand drawing of selected notes work.
Currently it doesn’t seem to affect only a selected range but the selected notes in the entire project.
So if your range includes a C3 and an F4, for instance, all of those notes will be affected if you start drawing outside of your range, if there happens to be a C3 or F4 there
this was an mp3 export of a tune. Generally playing the session was using %25-35 and there were no apparent problems soundwise. When the export was ready, I pressed Play and the disk too slow message came.
Yes. But not always and it is not the only situation when this occurs.
It might not happen for a while, then suddenly start happening, one or more times.
Another example is making changes to region boundaries during playback.
I measured the disk speed a couple of months ago and @Paul said that the disk speed was sufficient for many tracks, but another factor was scheduling. I don’t know how to investigate that.
