1.2. Installer should not need Rosetta anymore.

The macOS installer should now work in systems where Rosetta is not installed.


1.3. Support for Protools native on Apple Silicon

The macOS installer now ships AAX plugins that work in both arm64 and x86_64 architecture, in anticipation to future Protools support for native Apple Silicon.


2. Usability

2.1. Graillon minor/major scale presets

In Graillon, you can now select a minor or major scale by clicking on the icon there.

2.2. Preview parameter values by hovering mouse.

In Renegate, Lens, and Panagement, who have a global viewer for parameters, hovering a parameter with the mouse will now provide its value.

Lens UI is also a bit less dark, and some text was made more readable.


2.3. New User's Guide

All plug-ins got a more modern-looking user's guide, that you can find right into the ZIP folder.

2.6 UI is using less RAM

RAM usage is better:

  • Couture 1.7: UI takes 16.2 mb of RAM, a -40% usage reduction.
  • Graillon 2.7: UI takes 20.2 mb of RAM, a -46% usage reduction.
  • Renegate 1.3: UI takes 24.9 mb of RAM, a -27% usage reduction.
  • Panagement 2.5: UI takes 22.9 mb of RAM, a -45% usage reduction.

All measurements made in 100% UI size.

3. General bug fixes

3.1. Fixed Linux animation

Fix animation going too fast in some Linux distributions. Time is now measured like SDL does.

3.2. Fixed Sluggish controls in non-VST2 with some hosts

Sliders were painful to use in Ableton VST3, with jumping values. Controls should be smoother everywhere now.

3.4 Other fixes

  • Fix Big Sur slow UI.
  • Fix macOS mouse wheel being extreme with some mouses.
  • Fix Ardour + macOS Monterey crash.
  • Many resizing fixes.
