Hello everybody, this is the topic for testing regarding the upcoming 1.3 release series.
Before anything else, thank you very much for your testing, bug reports and general feedback!
The 1.3 series includes rework of the code used for addressing parameters to hardware, so this and the new features are what needs testing the most.
The rework was needed in preparation for the upcoming control chain devices. (not in v1.3, likely in v1.4)
To roll back, grab the latest stable release file from Releases - MOD Wiki and follow the instructions on the top of that page.
Here’s the changelog so far:
NEW add ‘MIDI Utility’ category
NEW implemented pedalboard presets
NEW support for all generic USB joysticks as MIDI devices (buttons as notes, axis as CC)
NEW support for click-less bypass (needs support from plugin, using lv2:enabled port designation)
NEW support for lv2:freeWheeling port designation
NEW wait for the first pedalboard to finish loading before disabling true-bypass
fix 1 extra round-trip latency when using USB MIDI keyboards under certain conditions
fix bad pedalboard names when saved with html-encoded names
fix broken banks manager if clicked on too soon before it finished loading
fix category inline display on small browser windows
fix loading bank with manually deleted pedalboards
fix tooltips for MIDI hardware names containing spaces
fix thumbnail mis-alignment when plugin has no brand
fix updating a plugin if its bundle name doesn’t match the cloud one (eg, locally deployed plugins)
fix ‘update all’ button always disabled after being clicked once, even after updates finish
fix web interface being locked when rendering 2 screenshots at the same time
keep installing/updating plugins if one of them fails (eg, updating all plugins in store)
make ‘developer mode’ state persistent (plus add ‘disable_dev_mode’ function)
make folded/unfolded plugin area state persistent
make loading of pedalboards slightly faster
show more pedalboards at once, use thumbnail instead of screenshot (faster pedalboards screen)
show a warning popup if user presses ‘update all’ plugins, but there are no plugins to update
show a warning popup if trying to change an addressed parameter
small optimizations to boot time
Everything should be working. If not, please let us know!
Documentation regarding pedalboard presets is also nowhere to be found… we’ll be handle that in the following days.
Just note that you have to save the main pedalboard for it to save the pedalboard presets.
Not yet, addressing a list to a midi cc is still something we need to figure out first.
Also regarding your issue with the spinning wheel on the pedalboard thumbnails, fixed for the next build too.
Seems like having 2 pedalboard screenshots being generated at once blocks the entire thing…
Found an alternative way to handle the situation, so things will continue to be smooth after a pedalboard save now.
