Zynaddsubfx 3.0.2 - The “Liquefaction” Release

As we saw the needs of users and switched priorities accordingly we have
been working on some big new features and are excited to announce a new
release. Perhaps eclipsing all other features in this release,
“Liquefaction” adds a new Macro learning and automation feature. This
feature is just in its infancy but already allows the sound designer to
select one or more parameters and map them to macro slots which can then be
bound to midi controls for live tweaking with your controller, or exposed
to a plugin host for automation in your DAW. With this powerful new system
you can create arbitrary mappings of up to 4 parameters to a single knob.
We hope you find this feature useful and exciting as it develops further.
You can look through our current documentation on the feature at:


Note that users of the “legacy” UI will not be able to access this feature
fully, but midi learn should operate still as expected. Scala file loading
for microtonal users is another highly-requested feature landing in 3.0.2.

The highlights of added features and bugfixes include :


   Upgrade MIDI learn system to include host automations and macro learned

   for some crazy automation
