I have to admit that I was blinded by some positive tests in the relevant platforms and media and – which was much more cruicial – my own experience with high class ThinkPad machines. So nothing to euphemise – that’s what you get when you blindly trust a big business concern like Lenovo. It’s completely my fault that I’m a displeased owner of an expensive but cheap piece of plastic. Sadly there seem to be no replacements on the market atm, either significant parts like a trackpoint, enough USB ports or a high resolution display are missing, the casing is even more worse than the one of this rattletrap or the internals are too lame to sell them as a „workstation“.
Oh, and not to forget: http://thenextweb.com/insider/2015/02/19/lenovo-caught-installing-adware-new-computers/
Update: Aaaand Another one.
Update: Oh dear. Really? Not charging batteries not found to be „genuine“? You guys at Lenovo *really* suck big time.
Anyway. Now that I own this crappy piece of downgrade I feel like I have to make my concerns public to prevent at least a couple of people to get trapped by some clever PR.
Version 2.6.7: * New language: Polish by Dariusz - thanks a lot man! * UI slightly bigger
A new mastering device available in the Calf suite! The Multiband Enhancer spreads or reduces the stereo image and is able to add some harmonics – on four separate bands individually! For example: reduce the stereo base of your bass band to get more punch and spread it on the highest band for more air and stereo image. Monitor what you’re doing with the tiny goniometers in every band. Add some harmonics in the mid bands to raise the presence of your signal without changing the loudness – Multiband Enhancer really enhances your mix.
Ja, ein Beitrag auf deutsch. Aus guten Grunde – endlich ist Citizenfour mit deutscher Übersetzung erhältlich – vermutlich aber Dank der deutschen Rechtsprechung bzgl. öffentlich-rechtlicher Inhalte im Netz nicht allzu lange.
Also schnell FLASH deinstallieren (wie, Du hast echt noch FLASH auf Deiner Kiste?! Weil sonst die Werbung nicht so geil flickert?), um das Video in der Mediathek als HTML5-Version zu sehen und dann mit Rechtsklick->Video speichern unter… auf die Festplatte bannen.
Tonight I implemented level meters, bypass and gain knobs to all plug-ins which were missing these widgets. Non-signal-processing plug-ins like Reverb or Multichorus got an On/Off switch instead of a bypass toggle. This way a comparison between dry and wet is much easier and meaningful. Bypass copies the input directly to the output while switching off e.g. a flanger just removes the effect signal from the output, dry signal keeps its level.
Additionally some of the plug-ins UIs were overhauled, basically they got more compact.
A feature request which appeared quite often was at least a bypass button for all plugins in calfjackhost. Lately the main work for adding a much broader spectrum of plug-ins controls was done. It still hides in a branch called „rackwidgets“ but is fully funcitonal now. Only one problem left: The knobs don’t update their counterparts atm.
As soon as this gets sorted out we’ll merge the stuff into the master.
Oh and we got scales for the meters in calfjackhost now, too!
Some time ago I updated Vintage Delay and Pulsator with a new timing selector widget. Now it’s possible to not only set bpm or tap in the tempo but to select as milliseconds or hertz, too – or just sync it to the host.
Another partially implemented (but actually ot working) feature is the new Pattern Editor in Vintage Delay where one can build custom delay patterns up to 8 beats with 8 fragments at max. As soon as we have full atoms support the Pattern Editor will be fully functional.
