SWAM BRASS Support

Release Note

[August 12th, 2020]

 

NEW:

– Improved attacks for Trombones and lower instruments

– Faster transitions for legato articulations

– Increased resolution for Pitch Bend Up/Down parameters (from 1 to 0.5)

– Expression can be controlled by Channel Pressure on MIDI channel 1 for MPE profile  

 

FIX:

– Unpredictable behaviour for Sample Rate greater than 64 kHz

– Unpredictable behaviour for Pitch Bend Up = 0

– Ableton Live: removed undo history for Valves and Slide parameters

– Windows: update from v1.x to v1.5 can cause crash or unpredictable behaviour for some DAWs

 

KNOWN ISSUES:

– Window resizing for plugins: on some hosts and DAWs, it’s required to close and reopen the plugin window to apply the new size

– Ableton Live: every time a parameter mapped on any CC number is modified with an automation, the action is added to Ableton’s Undo list.  This behaviour does not happen with other DAWs

– Dynamic Envelope not working when Pipe Selection is set to Manual
