MM-1 MuteMaster
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

MM-1 is a unique effect plugin designed to create automated or generative arrangements by automatically mixing multiple tracks inside a DAW.

When placed on multiple tracks, individual instances work together using a shared state system allowing the plugin to mute or fade any track it’s placed on.

Mute Patterns are used to select which tracks are being muted and can either be selected manually or cycled in various ways using different sources including a built-in trigger sequencer, chance and divider modules as well as keyboard input.

In addition, mutes can either be applied instantly to create tight rythmic changes or faded gradually by a variable amount ranging from a few milliseconds to a full 5 seconds allowing for smooth pattern changes.

Audiobus 3 MIDI Learn

Audiobus 3

What’s New

Introducing Audiobus 3.4, with tons of workflow improvements, including preset addition, MIDI sync, MIDI Learn improvements including support for Audio Unit and app output (hello LFOs, hello sidechain compression!), Audio Unit user presets and so much more that it’s a little embarrassing.

Here’s the complete list of what’s new.

– MIDI clock sync! Now you can synchronize external MIDI gear and other non-Link-compatible apps via MIDI sync. Audiobus’ MIDI sync will also act as a bridge between Link and MIDI clock.
– New “Add” button for presets: Now you can append a preset to your current session, so you can use presets like reusable components.
– Lots of big MIDI learn improvements:
– New MIDI Learn Receiver port, for using the MIDI output of Audio Units and apps to control your session. Great for LFO generators and audio-to-MIDI utilities!
– MIDI Learn binding triggers can now be assigned manually.
– MIDI Learn adjustment actions now have range controls, both for the incoming CC, and the final value.
– MIDI Learn toggle actions now have more configurations, including the ability to invert the incoming value from a CC.
– Audio Unit User Presets: Alongside Audio Unit Factory Presets, you can now create your own presets for each AU, which will be accessible across Audiobus sessions. You can also switch AU User Presets via MIDI Learn.
– Virtual MIDI Bridge input, for receiving MIDI from apps that support neither IAA or Audiobus MIDI standards.
– Brand new selector pop-up, with separate tabs for System, Apps and Audio Units, and support for favorites.
– Hardware input gain slider in Settings, for compatible devices.
– Added Link quantize duration setting
– “Mute” for MIDI devices now sustains currently-held notes until release, rather than immediately silencing.
– MIDI hardware and virtual MIDI inputs appearing in multiple pipelines are now treated independently, allowing for per-pipeline muting and volume control.
– Brand new, rewritten-from-scratch Audiobus manual at https://audiob.us/help
– Numerous bug fixes and improvements, including:
– Fixed crash when using “Copy” on unsaved preset MIDI profile.
– Fixed issue where MIDI Learn trigger listening becomes unresponsive after clearing.
– Fixed stuck MIDI level meter when away from mixer screen.
– Fixed occasional issue where app state saving fails.
– Don’t show “More” button on Connection Panel during MIDI Learn for AUs.
– Fixed some app and AU loading issues.
– Fixed issue displaying secondary AU MIDI output ports.
– Fixed some sample rate and route change issues.
– Fixed an issue where MIDI sources present on launch are not initialised.
– Assorted layout fixes and improvements.
– Fixes for iPhone XS Max, and AU screen fixes for Plus sized iPhones.
– Skip MIDI consistency tracking for single MIDI sources, which should enable apps/AUs that mess with MIDI in exciting and illicit ways to work better.
– Don’t autosave MIDI Learn profiles from presets: wait until the preset is saved to save the MIDI Learn profile of the preset.

Kymatica AUM Update!
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Kymatica just updated AUM – Audio Mixer with a whole bunch of MIDI improvements! There is a new MIDI channel strip to hold MIDI-only AUv3 plugins. There are a lot of features in AUM that can now be controlled via MIDI. The update also includes Ableton Link 3 start/stop support.

MAJOR NEW FEATURES

• Finally, updated to Ableton Link 3 with start/stop support!
• Add new “MIDI strip” channel type to hold MIDI-only AU plugins.
• Allow importing channels from another session. (Tap IMPORT add-button, or long-press a session file and choose ‘Import channels’)
• Allow easy duplication of channel strip.
• Allow loading sessions via MIDI actions. Its configuration is saved globally instead of in the session.
• Add MIDI program change as recognized MIDI control messages.
• Add MIDI ctrl for tap tempo.
• Add MIDI action ‘Show Plugin’ for AUv3 nodes.
• Add MIDI actions for AUv3 preset-loading.
• Avoid stuck notes when bypassing/disconnecting MIDI sources or changing MIDI destination filter/transpose
• Show AU contextName (if set) in plugin title and as node icon subtitle, long-press AU plugin title bar to edit.

IMPROVEMENTS

• Re-apply preferred samplerate on audio interface route change.
• Remember preferred sample rate on app launch.
• Save preferred instead of current sample rate in session.
• Bring keyboard to front if currently behind the plugin window when tapping plugin window keyboard button.
• Send error string to Audiobus if preset load failed.
• MIDI matrix: highlight source and dest on touch-down.
• Support upside-down portrait on iPhone.
• Improve display of long names in MIDI control table.
• MIDI learn consistency: always ignore the message that triggered the learn.
• Tweak node param-knob and menu button layout for consistency.
• Only update latency compensation on node-bypass if the node has latency.
• Save project: save when tapping Return on keyboard.
• Various minor UI and layout tweaks.
• Keep connections to MIDI Control from permanent MIDI sources on load/new session.
• Minor optimizations for MIDI Control.

BUGFIXES

• AUv3 Transpose: ignore extra bytes in note messages (hello Thesys).
• Clear MIDI matrix when loading session so it isn’t keeping connections from previous session.
• Don’t crash when trying to MIDI-control parameters of a crashed AU plugin.
• NodePicker: avoid keyboard on iPhone.
• NodePicker: fix memory leak if dismissed while in search mode.
• NodePicker: hide ‘remove slot’ button while searching.
• NodePicker: hide search if collection empty.
• Make sure we don’t free MIDI sources/destinations too early. Hopefully avoids rare crash…
• Improve MIDI safety when AU plugin was invalidated (crashed).
• Update MIDI matrix correctly if visible while loading session.
