Version 2.1.2 - A few small updates

Hello all. Its been a quiet week, but a few reports came in nonetheless. Without further ado, heres the change list:

Version 2.1.2 (2013-03-24)
  • Fixed tempfile creation problem on certain systems
  • Fixed CTRL+key operations not working in all hosts
  • Fixed crash when using split wave combo box with no waves loaded
  • Fixed incompatibility with ACID program handling
  • Added workaround to strange ACID vst scanner unload behaviour
  • Load/save notifications can now be disabled
I was thinking of adding some nefarious checker code throughout the product, just to make it a little harder to re-crack (not that I mind the crack, but the very least you can do is work a little for it). But I am too lazy - I mean - I care too much about the wellbeing of my users to do such things! ;-)

Anyhow, enjoy the new release. Make some nice easter songs. They will be eggstra welcome! And remember, nothing appeases the easter bunny like the gift of a TX16Wx license.

Happy sampling!

Its official - TX16Wx is now a "real" product!

Woho. I just noticed that the group "TEAM R2R" released a cracked version of TX16Wx. Finally, I'm crack-worthy! Very Happy

But seriously, guys, I am a little disappointed and underwhelmed; You just did some image editing to remove the license check. I had hoped you would at least make a key generator, and thus read the message I left for any potential cracker in the hash algorithm.

And if you had made a keygen, at least those who feel that the €20 I charge for TX16Wx Pro and/or the ~30 days trial (which by the way are ridiculously easy to extend) to short a time to evaluate the product could have gotten whatever updates that will be released in the weeks ahead. As it is now, I'm a little sad that some of these write unsubstantiated bug reports in your forums instead of bringing them here. That does in fact hurt the product.

So, flattered that you took the time, but a little hurt that you didn't work harder. And a little miffed that you screwed with the binary. Don't screw with the binary. That is an honour reserved for me and MSVC.

Go team! Wink

Version 2.1.1 - Service release

Hello all.
Only a little more than a week since the drop of v2.1.0, and I already found or got reports on several bugs. Somewhat embarrassing for me, but at least I got the opportunity to fix them.
I strongly encourage everyone to download this version as soon as possible, since there are quite a few crashes that can happen with the previous release.

  • Fixed drag and drop of matrix to split not working
  • Fixed reordering of splits with matrix assigned
  • Fixed group/wave list values flickering
  • Fixed matrix list not refreshed on new/load/delete
  • Fixed hang when using key based switching
  • Fixed bank loading asking about reloading data
  • Fixed crash when deleting group switching node
  • Fixed broken saving of soundfont wave references in DAW bank
  • Fixed crash when previewing SFZ files
  • Fixed layout problem in 800x600 resolution
  • Fixed FX not being activated / crash when using program change to switch performance
  • Fixed crash when deleting last program
  • Fixed choke groups not cooperating with trigger switching
  • Improved wave preview playback
  • Improved "layers to matrices" command to generate two-dimensional results
  • Improved insert handling
  • Improved filter modulation from on-key sources when using mono/legato mode
  • Matrix editor now allows editing attributes for all selected items

Version 2.1.0 is now gold.

Hello all.
After a rather uneventful week since the release candidate came out (a few minor bugs), I am now declaring the TX16Wx Software Sampler version 2.1.0 gold. This is the first stable release of TX16Wx Professional, and while the release date is a little later than I had hoped, I think you can agree that I did not skimp on the features.

Version 2.1.0 (2013-03-06)
  • Fixed loading of wave data with non-destructive trim
  • Fixed Sinc128 interpolation crashing
  • Fixed modulation preset list not switching to newly created preset
  • Fixed file dialogs not using correct initial directory when saving sound items
For the complete feature list and downloads, go to

An remember, nothing says "springtime" as a TX16Wx Pro license, so get a few for your friends and loved ones this year. Easter is coming. 

A big thank you to all who contributed with suggestions and bug reports, and of course to all of you who have already supported the project by purchasing the product. Keep all the suggestions and feedback coming.

Happy sampling
