RML Labs - SAWStudio / SAWStudioLite v4.0a /SAWStudioBasic v1.5a (Pc)


Current Release Notes
Version: SAWStudio/SAWStudioLite 4.0a | SAWStudioBasic 1.5a
November 14, 2006

** Included in SAWStudioBasic update.



** Two new options have been added to the Options menu to allow adjustment of the base Priority Class of the program. I have adjusted code to allow for safely increasing the Process priority internally to High or RealTime priority. You may force the priority of the program to be raised above Normal for a possibly more robust performance level. Be careful with the RealTime option, however, because you will force SAWStudio above other system processes and if the program locks for some reason, you may not be able to escape, even from the Task manager. This can be useful, however, for stopping interference from other background services and processes and may allow smooth audio operation at very low latency settings.

** A new option has been added to the Command Line processing when the program first starts.

SAWStudio will now accept multiple FKY filenames on the command line when starting up. The first .fky filename found will load as the default F-Keys. The next one found will load as the default Alt-F-Keys. The third one found will load as the Midi WorkShop default F-Keys (requires MWS Version 1.6f or higher). You do not need path information for the Fky files, only the filenames. The SAWStudio files must be stored in the Configuration folder under the SAWStudio folder. The Midi WorkShop file must be stored in the MidiWorkShop_Configuration folder under the SAWStudio Native_PlugIns folder.
Example: C:\SAWStudio\SAWStudio.exe Test.fky TestAlt.fky TestMws.fky



** The new Slide MT-Entry data function undo creation has been fixed.

** Both new Export Tracks to SoundFiles options have been fixed to properly handle automation and Fx buffer size changes with no glitches.

** Fixed the loss of window focus when using Ctrl-S and other menu commands with message and dialog boxes.

** Fixed code to keep Solo Bus options from interfering with the performance of BuildMix operations.

** Fixed Solo Bus mode solos to be active in Rec and Rec/Rdy modes.

** Fixed MTLoad readout to be active in Rec and Rec/Rdy modes and for the MTLoad and SrcLoad windows to be properly cleared when the engine is stopped.

** Code modifications have been extended to the SoundFile View to enhance stability and eliminate corruption of screen displays with multi-processors, multi-core processors and hyperthreading processors.

AW is the acronym for Software Audio Workshop.

The look and feel of a fully controllable console, coupled with an all new high powered 24-bit hard disk engine make this product one of the most intelligent choices for the serious audio professional.
