TX16Wx 2.4.0 Released

Finally, after a stupendously long beta period, here is the long awaited gold release of TX16Wx 2.4.0.
There are a plethora of new, exciting features in this release, not the least new program importers for Akai and EXS material, new modulation options, filters and other goodies.

There is also a lot of bug fixes and stability improvements, along with some nice eye candy in the UI and a new, large skin for those with high DPI / small screen area displays.

TX16Wx 2.4.0
  • OSX / Windows Vista / Windows 7 "missing file" dialog now includes a "search" option
  • Load/Save progress indicator now includes an "Abort" button
  • Added a "via" cross modulation parameter to modulation entries, allowing control of modulation strength by other modulator
  • Added selectable round-robin source for wave matrix / group switcher
  • Added "toggle" trigger mode
  • Added large UI skin
  • Added import of EXS format instruments
  • Added import of AKP format instruments
  • Added 6db low/high pass filter

  • Added program/performance re-ordering dialog
  • Added user selectable program icons
  • Skins now handle CSS "import"
  • UI size is now constrained by minimum size of applied skin
  • UI skins loading time improved
  • Default skin + graphics are now delivered as external files as well as resources.
  • SFZ import now honors Midi CC trigger switch
  • Save and other edits now disabled while previewing material
  • Fixed issue where editing wave matrix source settings was applied to all objects, not just selected.
  • Fixed import of Sound fonts with non-symmetric/broken stereo pair definitions
  • Fixed CoreObject leaks and errors on OSX
  • Fixed COM leaks and errors on Windows
  • Fixed host not notified on performance change

P.S. I know I promised a 2.5 release already this summer. As it looks now, that will be significantly delayed, due to other projects taking precedence. But on the bright side, there is a lot going on in the code labs, and with a little luck you might be pleasantly surprised by the end results.
