The frequency modules make it into this release. The MIDI to Poly component is now wrapped inside a new MIDI to Poly module. In the properties for this module you can choose between Hz and normalized frequency (0-1). The high-level modules that take a frequency now use Hz. Have a look at the updated example synth to see how this affects things. Remember that old schematics should be completely unaffected by this change.

There's a number of bug fixes and some enhancements to make editing quicker in larger schematics (still more to come here as well). The sawtooth and triangle oscillators now write their 2K wavetables to the SM install folder making load times much much quicker when these components are involved. For VST plugins the tables are written to the same folder as the dll the very first time the plugin is used.

There are some useful enhancements to the front panel editing in this release, mainly to handle items that are out of view. When this happens a red border appears indicating where the items are. When in panel edit mode you can now right-click and select Bring Panel Items Into View - any out of view items will move to the top-left corner. You can also now move items with the mouse without snapping to the grid by holding CTRL as you move.

Additions and fixes:

* Fixed a crash that would sometimes occur when using Time Info to get sample rate in schematics that use ASIO Out.
* ADSR was hanging the application when using negative sustain values.
* When using the Drag Accumulate components the mouse capture can fail to release under very specific (but rare) circumstances.
* The GetPixel and SetPixel components were not handling out of range coordinates.
* Fixed a crash when dragging from the toolbox and dropping outside of the target window.
* Bitmaps were not being copied when dragging modules to the toolbox.
* CPU meter was sometimes giving figures above 100%.
* Improvements to the update mechanism to improve performance when editing large schematics.
* Front panel off-screen feedback, force visible and fine mouse.
* Fixed a small bug in the navigator which was making it draw incorrectly in between loading schematics.
* Fixed a crash that occurs when using the Synchronise Painter inside a synchronised module.
* The 2K wavetables for the built in sawtooth and triangle oscillators are now written to a file to improve startup times.
* The automatic conversion from String to String Format wasn't working through module outputs.
* When using the Font component, Arial is now used in the event of you specifying a typeface that is not available on the host system.
* Updated all the built in modules to include the recent updates.
* Filled Round Rectangle and Round Rectangle components were not drawing correctly.
* Knob module ctrl click to acquire default value was not working.
* Switching off Direct Sound Out and ASIO Out will prevent automatic recompiling when editing which can sometimes cause a lag.
* New frequency modules for switching between Hz and normalized (0-1) systems.
* Enhancements to Front Panel editing for out of view items.

SynthMaker is a graphical programming environment for creating VST instruments and effects plug-ins.

You can also use SynthMaker to learn about and experiment with digital signal processing so it's a great educational tool as well.

System Requirements
SynthMaker requires a processor with SSE instructions and it runs on Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

Support for SSE instructions started with the Pentium III and continued with more recent processors including recent AMDs like the Duron and Athlon XP. Almost all new processors support SSE now.
