Version 2.5.22: * Updates in greek language file - many thanks to vagrale13! * UI: wider left bar
Shriramana Sharma (ஶ்ரீரமணஶர்மா श्रीरमणशर्मा) pointed out that xplanetFX wasn’t availabe via repository. The problem is fixed now, thanks dude!
After years of guessing what the VU meters are displaying we now have reliable meterings in all plug-ins.
The icons were broken in Ubuntus Unity “menu” and the xplanetFX’s icon contained a real text element which rendered wrongly if the font was missing on a particular machine.
As I mentioned before, I spent the last weeks with a major rewrite of the line grap widget – seems I’m almost done. The speedup of most of the user interfaces is awesome. The only things missing are some problems with some Analyzer grids and the spectralizer drawing mode of the Analyzer, everything else seems to function well. Some of the plug-ins got an update of their user interfaces and I slightly changed some widgets graphics.
I urgently needed some distraction from the brain fuck I’m into actually – a complete rewrite of the Calf line graph widget. So I decided to make an update to one of my favorite xplanetFX themes – “Porthole”. A nicer wood texture, better lighting and two more color styles for the wood texture are the result. Hope you like it.
I did a major rework of the crossovers section these days. One of the benefits is a consistent crossover audio-fx class every plugin with crossover capabilities relies on, another one is a 100% flat response of the crossovers. I followed Damien Zamits idea to implement Linkwitz-Riley filters, thanks dude! There are three modes of crossovers – LR2, LR4 and LR8. The first one isn’t available in multiband plugins because of its phasing problems. It is only usable in the three new plug-ins, fully featured X-Overs available with 2, 3 or 4 bands for active speaker management or for building custom chained plug-in lines with different frequency ranges.
