CV Toolkit - Standalone Version
Spektro Audio - http://spektroaudio.com/
5 New Modules:
Shaper: a 4 in 1 module that works as a wavefolder, a rectifier (full and half), an attenuverter and as an offset generator.
Delay: Delay module capable of delaying any incoming signals by up to 4ms. The delay time can be either set in ms or synced to the BPM.
Shift Register - 8bit analog-style shift register. Great for creating random sequences that slowly change over time.
PMW Clock - A clock module with pulse-width modulation.
Euclidean Sequencer - Sequencer that generates rhythmic trigger patterns using an euclidean algorithm.
Fixed the ordering of the outputs when using the SMUX option
Added SMUX support for Windows version.
Updates the SMUX encoder for the Mac version.
Added support for the Expert Sleepers ES–4, ES–40, ESX4-CV and ESX8-CV modules. **
Major improvements to the VCO calibration algorithm. According to our tests, CV Toolkit should now be able to calibrate VCOs faster and with a precision of +/- 2 cents.
Added improvements to Midi Clock synchronization.
Fixed a bug that would prevent MIDI Pitch Bend from returning back to zero.
Fixed a bug that would cause CV Toolkit to freeze while changing between preset with audio processing turned on.
** Although we got success results from our tests, the support for these modules is still experimental and it might be subjected to bugs. Our plan is to improve the support for these modules in future updates.
Introducing new Virtual Slot System: Change the modules inside the slots by pressing the M key or clicking on the Modules button.
New CV Recorder module (Slot #8) - Record the output of any other virtual module and play it back using Vari-Speed (–10x to 10x).
New Comparator module (Slot #8) - Performs a bipolar 1-bit quantization to an incoming signal.
New Morphing VCO module (Slot #10) - A digital oscillator that can be used as sub oscillator, a modulator for FM / ring-mod patches or as an audio-rate modulation.
New Clock Generator module (Slot #11) - Generate clock signals at different rates.
Significant CPU usage optimization.
CV Quantizer is now more reliable and contains 13 scales: Chromatic, Major, Minor, Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor, Blues, Dorian, Lydian, Locrian, Major Pentatonic, Minor Pentatonic, Arabic and Augmented.
MIDI Notes Out - You can now send the output of the CV Quantizer module as MIDI notes to the selected MIDI output port. (Useful for layering sounds using other analog synths or virtual instruments).
Added a width control for the Step Sequencer Gate / Clock output (Available in the Options window)
Added curve adjustment for AD1 and AD2 (Logarithmic → Linear → Exponential)
Added Pitch Bend support (with adjustable range to up to +/- 12 semitones)
Improved voice handling
Improved sync for the S&H module
The Routing Matrix guidelines now have different colors for virtual modules (green) and analog outputs (blue).
Lemur template updated to include new virtual modules.
Minor design changes
New “MIDI to CV” module with auto-calibration and transpose. Calibrate your VCOs and play them in tune!
New “CV Quantizer” module – Quantize signals coming from other virtual modules to a specific Scale (Chromatic, Major, Minor, Minor Harmonic or Blues) and note range.
ScanGraph improvements: • ‘Rand’ button - Generates a random graph • Snap breakpoints to the grid by holding down the “S” key • Use these two new features together in order to generate random graphs with all breakpoints snapped to the grid.
Envelope improvements: • ‘Rand’ button - Generates a random graph
Step Sequencer improvements: • Velocity Layer - The velocity layer can be used to control the gain of the AD envelopes for each of the steps. You can also turn a step off by setting it’s velocity to zero. • Shift the sequence by pressing the arrow keys on your keyboard • “Rand”, “Clear”, and shifting operations can be applied to the Velocity layer by holding down the “V” key. • Adjustable number of steps (Min: 4 / Max: 16) • New option for changing the output signal from Bi-Polar to Positive-only (available on the Options window) • New option for disabling triggers generated by the Sequencer (available on the Options window)
Native SMUX support (Mac only) – You can now use CV Toolkit together with an Expert Sleepers ES–3 module at higher sample rates (above 48kHz)
The GATE outlet was removed from the Routing Matrix for a better user experience. You can still output gates through the Mix module. We’ve also added an option for swapping the TRIGGER outlet on the Routing Matrix for a GATE outlet.
New option for disabling the transmission of LEDs to the Lemur for a smoother integration (available on the Options window).
The Trim dial is now called “Output Trim” and it has been moved to the Options window. It’s value will now be stored as a global settings and will be automatically recalled every time you open the program.
You can now hold down the “G” key to activate guidelines on the Routing Matrix.
Lemur template updated
Many misc / minor bug fixes
