Novation SNX has been updated to version 1.0.2. This is a big update for the SNX AudioUnit & VST Editor / Librarian plug-in, which is shipped with Library improvements, new features and bug fixes.
You can read more about the updates from the change log page. This update might not be compatible with previous version of the plug-in, but it is surely better in overall functions than previous version.
Customers can head down to downloads PAGE and download the latest version from there. Demo version is available at the product page and 32-bit installers are under downloads TAB.
As always, thanks for the support and keep posting the bugs to our forums. We are gonna take a look at each and every one of those.
Last week has been quite hectic with all non-work related stuff, but we are back now :)
It is that time of the year again, when we launch our Annual End Of The Year Sale. This year, we are running the campaign until January 1st 2019. Be sure to check out the deals well before the deadline!
Starting today, all products in our store are at least 40% OFF. Check out the plug-in bundles if you want to get even better discounts.
Plug-in news: Search function is now implemented in to our SN2x plug-in along with resize-able GUI etc. We will distribute the new installers asap and we will deploy the search functions, resize-able GUI functions plus a lot more to our other plug-ins as well.
To learn about our Plug-ins in general, check the VirusHC introduction video below :)
Finally we made break through with Access VirusHC Update version 1.5.6!
It was long in the makes, but we are very happy with this release. First of all, it should not crash (fingers crossed eh?). Well, we were not able to bring it down any more. Anyway, here is the list of changes:
Version 1.5.6 / 2018-09-15
[Fixed] Resolved issue where Pitch, Aftertouch and other controls were not passed through the plug-in.
[Improvement] Made some minor core changes to make the MIDI stream work a bit more light weight.
Version 1.5.5 / 2018-09-15
[New] Added experimental MIDI clock generator AND advanced MIDI filtering options to VirusHC plug-in. Advanced MIDI settings can be accessed from Multi Mode & Patch Browser tabs. Button appears right above our logo in the bottom right corner.
[Fixed] Resolved issue where FX was not recalled properly on pre-TI models after project was opened.
[Fixed] Tempo data should now synchronize with Virus on project recall and while initializing plug-in.
[Fixed] Resolved issue where DAW would crash when resetting all notes.
[Fixed] Adjusted some MIDI out detection booleans to make sure MIDI connection is alive.
Below you can see how the new Advanced MIDI Settings view looks like.
And the location of the Advanced MIDI Settings button (bottom right corner).
Use the forum to report any bugs found! This will be the last major update to the VirusHC until we have our new GUI ready. New GUI is 1500×757 pixels, so if you find anything from this version which would require a fix, please let us know asap :)
If for some reason the product is not listed / available, please contact us.
Here is what we have done:
v1.0.4 – 10.09.2018
[New] If user holds down Left Shift button while adjusting MULTI parameters, parameters will be sent out after shift button is released. This is made since Blofeld does not have multi parameters mapped in NRPN, SysEx or CC. Every time Multi parameters are adjusted, the whole multi must be sent to hardware, including parts data. Now if user holds down shift while setting parts 5-16 muted, multi data and data from parts 1-4 will be sent to hardware AFTER shift is released. (tested and working on MAC so far).
[Fixed] Adjusted program change commands to work more reliably.
[Fixed] When changing program with + / – buttons on different part than what was selected, selected part data was returned from hardware.
[Fixed] If program change was disabled on hardware, program changes were enabled via other sources. This has been changed so that if program change for current part is disabled, any program change commands from any source will be ignored.
[TIP] if you change programs with + / – buttons found in the mini mixer, program changes will be sent to hardware accordingly, starting from 0. Position in the Patch Librarian does NOT matter, unless “LIBRARY CONTROL ON PROG CHANGE” is active. This is because: we do not know the hardware bank content so it is pointless to follow on librarian view and show different patch names on the mini mixer and different names on the librarian view.
We are working to upload the new tutorial videos for all our products. In the meanwhile, if you have any questions, open the chat or leave us a email at contact page.
Summer is almost gone and we are behind our schedule due to computer breakdown and server re-work. Luckily we have some great news for Novation Nova (1st generation) and Novation Supernova (1st generation) owners: Novation SNX Update v0.9.8 is available right now.
If for some reason the product is not listed / available, please contact us.
Here is what we have done:
v0.9.8 – 06.09.2018
[New] Program and Bank change messages implemented and working as expected.
[New] Librarian supports Performance files across all Nova and Supernova models.
[New] Librarian supports Patch files across all Nova and Supernova models.
[New] Implemented Program Write to Bank A -> Bank B and Bank C (Supernova) -> Bank D (Supernova).
[New] Implemented Program Requests from Bank A to Bank B and from Bank C (Supernova) to Bank D (Supernova).
[New] Request single part to plug-in GUI via librarian menu.
[New] Requesting Performance data from Bank A (Nova) and Bank B (Supernova) to librarian implemented.
[New] User is now able to request data from hardware and write requested data to HDD.
[New] Nova 1, Nova 2, Supernova 1 and Supernova 2 banks fully supported.
[Fixed] Renamed nvx file extension from Bank Edit menu to snx.
[Fixed] Resolved issue where plug-in displayed data processing values up to 128%.
[Fixed] Bank request slots increased from A-B to A-D and added SN marking for Supernova compatible request slots.
[Fixed] Resolved issue with Arp Fill-In and Note Ordering not working properly when adjusting values from Hardware.
[Fixed] Resolved issue with Arp Bank value not working properly.
[Fixed] Parts 7 & 8 were not initialized properly and caused malfunction of several parameters.
[Fixed] In some cases, MIDI leds did not work the way they were supposed to.
[Fixed] In some cases, when button was clicked in hardware it did not reflect corresponding value on the software.
[Fixed] Supernova models were not able to establish clean connection with the plug-in.
[Fixed] In some cases, plug-in were stuck on processing data mode even though the process was complete.
[Fixed] Plug-in initialization flag now works as expected. This resulted plug-in display showing NULL values for all controls.
[Fixed] Sometimes plug-in did not react to Local Control switch and might caused some unwanted midi messages going back and forth.
[Fixed] Detecting MSB/LSB knobs, buttons and menus made easier.
We are aware of one bug at the moment and that is: if you click the program – or program + buttons on the quick mixer, program change takes effect only on the selected part! We will fix this soon and have it updated when Randomizer is included.
We did add some topics on the forums about the install procedure for macOS and Windows users, so be sure to check them out if needed. We have a tutorial how to setup SNX for Studio One 4 in Windows and macOS, but these topics will be available early next week.
While we were working with the NovaX plug-in, we thought Nova desktop and Nova II models are almost the same. That was not the case. Nova desktop and Supernova Rack seemed to share a lot same features in between. So, we took the NovaX plug-in, re-worked the code to match with Nova & Supernova data and SNX plug-in was born. In order to avoid confusion, we had to rename the plug-in.
v0.9.7 BETA version is available, which can be found from downloads page.
If you had pre-ordered the NovaX plug-in for Nova II model, let us know and we will change your order to SN2X plug-in, which is fully compatible with Nova II.
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.
We all know how Novation made one of the best VA synths ever. There was one thing that let me down with the sound design and overall usage: MENUs. Modulation capabilities of this synth are phenomenal and everyone who has had their hands on with Nova knows this.
Anyway, we are more than happy to announce availability of Novation NovaX AudioUnit and VST Editor & Librarian plug-in for Novation Nova and Nova II users!
Novation Supernova users have to wait few more weeks and we will roll out SNX plug-in for Supernovas.
Check our product page for NovaX and pre-order in advance to save some cash and get early bird access. Pre-orders will be charged upfront, but as you know: we deliver.
We are still working on with the plug-in so there is no alpha nor BETA downloads available at the moment! We are expecting to roll out the BETA version in June 2018 along with other plug-in updates.
I am turning 35 years this April, so I thought that I will put all the plugins on sale. Now you can save 35% on all plug-ins to date. All product prices are adjusted already, so just add to cart and proceed to checkout.
There are new updates on the way for all our plugins during the next months. I will not develop new plug-ins, until the old ones has been updated. I will start off with updating Waldorf plug-ins first, since qXr is almost ready with sequencer functions etc.
Next ones would be Clavia NL2xR, Access VirusHC, Roland JP-80×0, Korg microKxR, Korg MS2KxR – in that order. VirusHC and MS2KxR will have new graphics.
I am expecting to start off Novation SNxR and Clavia NL3xR graphics in June / July – I know many of you are waiting for the new plug-ins, but I can not handle more on my own. This affects to my entire family life and I feel they are being abandoned at the moment. I feel its not fair for them nor for me.
I hope you understand my position and support it. I will try to reply on all emails though.
