Great work,
setBfree is my favourite Hammond clone...

> It's been over 18 months since the last release and setBfree just
> reached another major milestone: It now features a proper GUI that
> allows to configure various aspects that have previously only been
> accessible via text config files (the config and program file-format
> itself has not changed). The GUI is available as LV2 and standalone jack
> application and the old tcl/tk prototype UI was removed for good.
> visit https://vimeo.com/130633814 for a demo.
> The 2nd big change was reworking the Leslie: The horn now spins
> counter-clockwise (same as the real thing) and we finally managed to
> track down the aliasing noise that was audible during acceleration and
> deceleration. Since various users play guitar and some even cello
> through it, an animated LV2 GUI was added for the whirl-speaker
> emulation and it has also been made available as standalone jack client.
> Advanced settings such as microphone angle, position, horn radius, etc
> are now also exposed (both for the organ as well as the LV2). The UI
> looks like

> Other notable changes include new addition of presets for Kurzweil and
> Korg CX3 and updates to portability (ARM-CPU/RPi, Windows + OSX
> versions). The full list of over 300 changes since 0.7.5 is available as
> git log.
> Binaries for Intel platform, GNU/Linux, OSX and Windows are available
> from https://github.com/pantherb/setBfree/releases/latest
> though for Linux most distros will pick this up as usual.
> Many thanks to Axel 'the C.L.A.' Müller and Jean-Luc Nest who provided
> valuable feedback and inspiring music during the development cycle.
> happy playing,
> robin + will
