The audio engine has changed:
There was a need for more flexible routing and
better multi-core support. Each plug-in input can
now mix any number of sources, from sound card
inputs or other plug-in outputs. Routing is done
like before but you can now use the CTRL-key to add
more then one input to a plug-in. In the same way
all plug-in outputs can be split to multiple
Multi-core processors are now
supported so that each signal chain can run on its
own core. So if you have 4 plug-ins and 4 cores each
plug-in gets its own core. But if all the plug-ins
are connected to each other, they run on the same
core, as they have to wait for each other any way.
You don’t have to think about this, it’s just to
give you a hint that routing affects the efficiency
of the program.
The next big change is the way MIDI controllers are
handled. Users reported that they where limited by
the early system of a global map with 8 layers. The
system has now been split up. You now add a new
Controller, you add as many knobs, buttons, sliders
as you want to match your physical device, and then
assign MIDI messages to these (instead of directly
to the plug-in-parameters).
Each plug-in instance can now have
as many controller maps as you want, and you can
switch between them like you do with snapshots.
There has also been added a bunch of filter, scale
and logic options so you can tweak the controllers
just the way you like.
LiveProfessor Beta 2.0 Change Log:
- Feature: New audio engine. Summing on all
plug-in inputs, split on all plug-in outputs.
- Feature: Better multi core support. All
cores are now used. The cores are divided pr.
- Feature: “Route back” you can now split a
signal and route it back to a plug-in earlier in
the signal chain. (Please look out for
- Feature: New MIDI controller system. The way
hardware MIDI controllers control plug-in
parameters is completely changed.
- Feature: Library. Most LiveProfessor
settings (Snapshots, Cues, Cue Actions,
Controllers, Controller Maps, etc) can be saved
in a global Library so you can use them in other
- Feature: Each cue now has a button to assign
a MIDI trigger.
- Fix: MIDI learn ignore active sense message.
- New: Comment action. Empty cue action that
can be used as a note/hint/memo.
- Fix: Bug in patch window when hiding
plug-ins with multiple I/O.
- Feature: Warning when opening a project on a
system with less IO then the one the project was
saved on. (Will remove the patch points).
- Feature: 88.2 KHz sample rate.
- Feature: Snapshot masks. When recalling a
snapshot in a cue action, you can now choose to
not recall selected parameters.
- New: Export cue lists. Cue lists can now be
saved (Only makes sense for cues that are not
linked to a plug-in).
- Feature: Expand/Hide all in cue list.
- Feature: New location of program settings.
The program settings are no longer saved in the
Program Files folder but in the AppData folder,
as this is the Vista/Win7 way.
- Fix: Bug when replacing snapshots when using
the global cue tool.
- Fix: Cues could get stuck to the mouse.
designed to be a effect rack of VST plug-ins –
specifically with live sound in mind. The concept is
very simple: using an ASIO audio card you can route
inputs and outputs through your VST plug-ins. The
program supports snapshots, MIDI and both VST
effects and VST instruments.
