Outsim - SynthMaker v1.0.1 (Pc)

New Release 1.0.1

Ok here's the first update to v1.

One of the main updates has been to the way that triggered float and int types are incorporated into the stream code. This was causing some bad glitches with multiple notes playing close together during playback in a host. Performance should also be improved as a result.

No changes to the file format in this release.

Additions and fixes

– Fixed a problem that was causing stuttering and audio glitches in exported VSTs when playing many notes continuously for a prolonged period
– The Float, Int and String Array components now send a trigger through the Size output when the array size changes
– The Index Selector now sends a trigger through the Selected String output
– Illegal components can no longer be pasted into the top-level schematic
– On some occasions when a tooltip popup was closed it would cause the wrong background to be drawn in the module underneath
– The PPQ position was giving an incorrect, slightly offset value when the host sequencer was stopped
– Dragging link control points off the top or left sides of the schematic window was causing the control point to flip to the opposite edge
– Bookmarks for sub-modules were not being removed when the parent module was deleted
– Updated all the knob modules in the toolbox so that they send only one trigger per movement
– The Float version of the Pitch to Frequency component was not using the selected audio sample rate
– The Stream version of the Pitch to Frequency component was not updating the sample rate after loading
– Fixed a crash that was occuring when using multiplexers to switch stream data when using two or more Poly to Monos (or Combiners)
– Updated the code in the State Variable Filter module so that it doesn't alter the input cutoff frequency
– The software no longer closes when you cancel loading of a schematic when launching the application
– MIDI messages were not being received by exported VST effects in Cubase
– Text labels on property panels will now wrap correctly when the label is resized
– Fixed a problem with graphical glitches when sending MIDI cc data to an exported VST
– The Point Array Lines component no longer assumes that points are in increasing x-coordinate order
– Corrected a problem when autolinking using a Selector so that two links are created
– The Stream version of the Pitch to Frequency component was only running every 4 samples
– Fixed a problem in the String Array Get At component that was causing infinite loops in some situations
– The progress dialog was showing the (now unused) Cancel button when exporting to VST

SynthMaker is an audio programming tool that allows anyone to create their own sounds, virtual instruments and effects without having to write any code. These instruments and effects can then be used for playing live via MIDI or as VST plugins for use in making music using any of the popular recording software.

Program without writing code, see the results in an instant

SynthMaker allows you to program without writing a single line of code. This is achieved by linking together components. Components are simply building blocks that perform some action. All changes take effect instantly with no build time.

One sample at a time processing
Synthmaker has a highly efficient sound engine. This allows you to process one sample at a time without compromising on performance. Feedback paths are no problem which is essential if you want to design your own filters.

One-click creation of plugins
Exporting an instrument or an effect is a simple one-click process. Having identified the module you want to export just click Create on the resulting dialog box. You can export to VST plugin or as a standalone instrument that can be played via MIDI. VST plugins are saved to your plugins folder and are instantly available when you run up your sequencer or host application.

A level for everyone
SynthMaker's components allow you to go to the lowest possible level. This gives you ultimate control over behaviour. Of course you don't need to make use of this ability all the time, quite often mid-level and high-level modules will do the job nicely.

Create beautiful, scalable user interfaces
SynthMaker has everything you need to create professional Graphical User Interfaces for your plug-ins. Each module can have it's own front panel within which you can place graphics and interactive areas.

The front panel of a module becomes a GUI element that can be displayed on the front panel of another module. By arranging layers of GUI elements in this way you can quickly and easily get impressive results.

All graphics in SynthMaker are scalable allowing you to resize and zoom and still maintain a coherent layout and appearance.

Low-level DSP through the code component
DSP algorithms are commonly expressed in a mathematical form, hence it makes sense to be able to implement them in the same way. Using the Code component you can do just that.

With the code component you can do any kind of processing you like. This uses a very small set of commands to allow you to translate algorithms into simple code.

The example opposite shows a moog filter. The algorithm for this filter was taken from musicdsp.org, a great resource for DSP algorithms and information.
