New release (again!): Version 1.0.07

I got some great feedback and bug reports this last few weeks, so as a result there has been a ton of stuff fixed and added. Here's the changelist for the new drop. Some really nice workflow additions here. You can now set sampe start/end point by Ctrl-left/right click in the sample editor, Shift-click for loop points and also automatic loop creation + ability to assign a loop to all (or previously loop-less) splits directly. No more clicking through groups.
Group start parameter is now visualized in the sample editor as well, whcih makes that parameter easier to work with. And of course a bunch of fixes as well.
v. 1.0.07:
  • Fixed race condition when some edit operations could cause crash if voices where playing
  • Fixed issue when deleting loops/slices could cause crash playing voices or exporting MIDI files
  • Fixed bug where Backwards/Bidirectional loop would not play if loop end equals wave end
  • Added reverse sample region operation to sample editor
  • Added "assign loop" to sample editor to quickly set current loop active in assigned splits
  • Added group start as editable visual marker in sample editor if current wave is part of selected groups
  • Added mouse shortcuts to directly set wave and loop start/end. Ctrl-click now sets wave bounds and shift-click sets the current loop range. Setting loop start/end when no loop exists will now automatically create one.
  • Made "forward" the default loop mode when creating new loops
     
Meanwhile the work on version 2.0 continues. Perhaps soon I'll post some screens of the new UI.
Happy sampling

  1. Wow, great news. It's my favourite sampler since it's coming into being. I use it to play acoustic drum sounds using some free samples. Thank you very much for your valuable work. I wish you good luck Calle.

  2. absolutly love this plug, and i love my yamaha tx16w hardware incl. NuEdge Typhoon 2000. i cry becauce my atari ST (for editing) is dead, and on falcon not runing, and on pc only "sounddiver" or "soundquest" very thinned :(( !! (only sample-transfer with "awave studio" is nice) pleace~~pleace pimp this VST-plug additional to a NEW big pc-sysex-editor for all hardware-fans of the tx16w machine, and the smile will new born in me for the next 100 years :))))))))))))))))

    1. Yeah, I encounter weird crashes from time to time, but I make sure I save the project often. Mostly exception/access memory errors, and there is a bug when you want to drag and drop a sample from Explorer, but I just don't use Explorer for that any more. :) However, weird crashes happen - it's a little bit unstable. Especially when you press something that doesn't make much sense. LOL

  4. I use TX16Wx mainly for drums but there's a bug that makes life difficult for me: If I assign some sounds to a mute group (or choke group or whatever it's called), the next time I load that preset or start the same DAW project, all drums in the preset are assigned to the mute group, making it a monophonic drum set.

    I noticed a similar bug in a preset that I had set to monophonic mode. I changed it back to polyphonic and saved the preset and the DAW project, but when I recall the preset or the DAW project it reverts back to monophonic.

    1. There's also this bug that is a great inconvenience when you use TX16Wx as a drum machine: when you want to change and load a different drum sample, and that happens all the time, the preview function previews it at the default C4 root key, so if I have a kick drum sample at C1 or C2 [as always], TX previews it and loads it at C4 root key, so you have to change the root key for every sample you want to load/change, every time. There should be an option to preserve the root key of the "group" when previewing from the browser and loading samples. This is quite essential for assembling multi-kits, since it takes a lot of time to change samples just because you have to change the root key every time. :( Having that option would make TX16Wx perfect for me. :) I can't see many other drawbacks, other than some little instability issues sometimes... I love it! Thank you Calle!

  5. Where samples are temporarily stored when just recorded - can samples be recovered when a host crash occurs?

  6. Maker: Unfortunately samples are kept in RAM only. Perhaps an option to set a temp dir to which data is stored when recorded would be good?

  7. Definitely would be useful, of course it would need management so samples wouldn't (over) accumulate.

  8. Definitely beneficial. Would need management to avoid (over) accumulation.
