Novation Nova editor (NovaX) beta is available now! Our development has reached a point where we were able to build it for beta testing.
Librarian functions are somewhat limited, ie. user can not store or request banks from hardware. Only performance data (all six parts and performance info) can be received and recalled on project load. Randomizer and Section Locks are in the code, but they are not activated since we would like to focus on gathering some feedback from you. Arpeggiator parameters are not yet built in the User Interface.
Everything else regarding to plug-in functions should be all ready to go. Once the arp editor and writing / requesting banks is fully supported, we will put up a new version.
Please note that this editor & librarian is built for Novation Nova-series only! Novation Supernova-series editor will be launched in few weeks time.
Clavia NL2xR AudioUnit & VST Editor just got a fragment better than you might expect. After the big update of VirusHC during this week, we made some ground breaking changes to our NL2xR.
Here is what we’ve done since version 2.0.0:
[New] About window added.
[New] First Run splash window. Quick instructions to user how to wire the hardware.
[New] Default banks are now in NL2 format, so the preset names won’t vanish when overwriting NL2 formatted bank.
[New] Windows installer now attempts to install in VSTPlugins/Mystery Islands Music.
[New] If plug-in is in performance browsing mode, regular patch request and storing functions are hidden from bank edit menu.
[New] If plug-in is in patch browsing mode, regular performance request and storing functions are hidden from bank edit menu.
[New] Added isDawRunning function in the core to check DAW status. This prevents automation from showing up on plug-in display from other than selected slot.
[New] Patches are now called Programs. All single programs will be stored to /User/Documents/Mystery Islands Music/Clavia NL2xR Editor/Programs/ folder.
[New] Performances are now stored to /User/Documents/Mystery Islands Music/Clavia NL2xR Editor/Performances/ folder.
[New] Program and Performance Request and Store commands moved to Bank Edit Menu and the old drop down selection menu is removed from the librarian view.
[Fixed] When Total Recall did not work or MIDI interface was not present, user had to reselect the MIDI I/O. This caused issue, where currently active data was requested from Nord and it overwrote the current Performance data from Plug-in.
[Fixed] Adjusted timeOut functions a bit further to prevent false timeOut messages.
[Fixed] AllSoundsOff now works as expected.
[Fixed] Data mode buttons now grey out when data is received to librarian.
[Fixed] Bank overwrite works as expected.
[Fixed] Part LEDs work as expected when notes or control change data is detected.
[Fixed] Global MIDI channel changed its value while browsing through patches from librarian.
[Fixed] Cancel Request button did not appear in the librarian view as it should while request process was on.
[Fixed] Unwanted parameters won’t display their values in controlDisplay.
[Fixed] Timeout and plug-in crashing the daw issues resolved while setting MIDI i/o or while requesting data from hardware.
[Fixed] Bank and program displays did not update while changing mode from Single to Performance.
[Other] Changed the way how renaming was applied to empty spaces in patch name.
[Other] Included NL2xR Editor UI.txt for future purposes.
To quickly summarise; move your current banks from Patches folder to Programs or Performances folder, depending which format they are. You can then remove the Patches folder as it is not used. And as usual, the update is available right now!
Access VirusHC update v1.5.1 is available now. We added new things, things that were highly requested.
Randomizer – You can now freely randomize any part you wish.
Section Locks – Compine together with Randomizer and you can keep some of the best settings of the randomized or even the current preset. If section locks are toggle on, patches sent from librarian will have your parts locked in place.
Better UI – We made some small adjustment to the user interface. We know there are a lot people asking for a bigger User interface, but at this time and due the last update issues, we were not able to ship it with this release.
MIDI / SysEx state LEDs per part – Now you can see per part which part is receiving data.
Librarian menu improvement – You can now toggle + or – to choose next or previous bank from the dropdown list, without having to open the menu.
Librarian Bank Edit Menu – revised to keep multi data and single data requests on their segments. Multi bank menu actions can be seen when Single Patches / Multi Bank Files button is toggled.
The best is the last one isn’t it? Limit bank view by categories. We made our own way to display all categories in the dropdown menu. Check it out!
time-out issues should be resolved. In some cases, even though the cables and midi interface was ok, plug-in indicated that it was not able to make the connection.
Semitone should behave as expected when knob is moved from hardware.
and some other stuff :)
Using Randomizer and Section Locks together:
This short video shows how to use section locks together with randomizer function. Powerful combination and you can use section locks even when you browse presets from librarian or from hardware.
Category Filter in action
You can now limit your bank view by categories. This is highly requested function so we made our own. This is better. Less clicking and selecting option back and forth. Just toggle on the filter and browse banks nicely created by the patch category statuses.
New sleek UI?
This is not yet the 4k-friendly version like we mentioned earlier. We wanted to fix living bugs first and then focus on the user interface when the core is healthy. We sure hope it is now!
Anyway, we added some new elements like part midi / sysex data indicators, took off the removable rack ears and added new button styles and some more. We will start working on the 4k and 5k user interfaces quite soon.
Thanks for supporting us and reporting any bugs you’ve found. Without your support, this would not be possible :) Have a great winter holidays, we are moving forward to fix more plugins and develop new ones!
