    WIVI Professional Mac released + Player update

    Major update. Including Mac AU/Mac VST players

    The player and instruments have been updated with a large number of new features.





    The Tone/Timbre panel has been updated with:
    - MIDI CC shift. This can be used to control formant shift of the instruments through a MIDI CC,
    - Tone compression. This parameter boosts or reduces the level of the lower dynamics of the instrument. This can be used to even out the instrument levels, while preserving the timbre changes. This feature can be very useful, and comes highly recommended.





    The polyphonic mode editor has been updated with:
    - Key priority. This can now be set to high or low. If set to low, the instrument will begin counting voices of a chord from the bottom note instead of the top note.





    The retrigger notes editor enables last key priority in monophonic mode. In practice, this means that you now can perform a trill by holding a key, pressing another key repeatedly. This functionality is now ON by default. Please note that this parameter only affects the instruments in monophonic mode, as polyphonic mode uses high/low key priority.





    The key attack speed editor has been updated with:
    - Velocity range. This can be used to increase or decrease the velocity impact on instrument attacks.





    A new randomizer editor has been added with:
    - Randomize timing. This can be used to randomize the timing of NOTE ON/NOTE OFF events,
    - Randomize pitch. This can be used to randomize the pitch of repeated notes.





    The breath data editor can now also set the max value and compression on a NOTE-BY-NOTE basis. So it's now possible to fine-tune the dynamic response of each key on an instrument.





    Volume and panning can now be controlled using MIDI controllers.





    The new pitch bend alignment editor can be used to alter the behavior of pitch bend. Normally, the pitch bend executes a normal pitch bend, but when pitch bend alignment is activated, pitch bend will instead trigger other notes. This can be used, for instance, to access quarter tones using pitch bend (or any other note division), but also to get more erratic behavior. Please note that this feature set to OFF by default, and must be activated/configured. This feature is found at the very bottom of the Control parameters panel.

    i just found this on the WIVI site.

    "The Mac version is finished, but we've had some issues with PPC computers not recognizing the plugin, although it's a UB. It runs under Rosetta, though, and technically it's ported to PPC. We only have Intel macs ourselves, so we cannot trace this now, but we'll get a PPC for it by this weekend or so."

    My EVI is dying to get started!!!!!

    We had this exact report before the release, and upgrading the OS solved the issue in that case. I think we're using OS X 10.4 specific functionality.

    There shouldn't be any issues with PPC (that we know of at least) but the minimum requirements have been set to OS X 10.4.

    Impressive Arne - that you are so active on these released updates. I must say it is getting me closer to pulling the trigger. Any new demos featuring these new additions?

    Arne:

    An FYI. Everytime I close the GUI in Digital Performer 5.11 it crashes the program. I also use Logic so I will give it a whirl in that program. No problems with it showing up in DP and I have been using the demo.

    Mac Quad G5 6 Gigs of RAM
    System 10.4.9
    DP 5.11

    Peace

    Same here- Dp. 4.6 /MOTU 828 /Mac G-5 quad 10,4x/beer

    Sounds good ,though.

    Yes, the crash on closing the GUI in DP has been confirmed from several sources. I'm on it, but we most likely have to get DP to track the error down, as I have no idea what's causing this right now.

    same crash happens in ABleton live 5.2 for mac.
    so its not just DP related.
