AriesVerb 0.4 released

A new ver­sion of AriesVerb is avail­able with improved sta­bil­i­ty, some new fea­tures and pre­sets. Most impor­tant­ly, it comes now with a com­plete PDF documentation.

  • Com­plete PDF documentation.
  • Many new presets.
  • Many old pre­sets have been refined.
  • New para­me­ters: Hold mode and Dr. Who mode.
  • Bet­ter usabil­i­ty with para­me­ter automation.
  • Fixed bugs.

The new pre­sets include: Air­plaaine (phasers), Lau­rel & Hardy (a flanger), Instant Honk (a cho­rus), PWM-alyz­er (a cho­rus with a twist), Major Glitch (FM effect), Slap­back inserts, Laser Echo, res­o­nant low­pass and high­pass fil­ters (yes, it’s pos­si­ble), Auto wah-wah, and some others.

If the Hold para­me­ter is active, the feed­back loop is closed and recy­cling infi­nite­ly. The Dr. Who para­me­ter con­trols whether the delay lines are cleared between progam changes. If they are not, then switch­ing between pro­grams may cre­ate all sorts of unpre­dictable clicks and nois­es. These para­me­ters are them­selves not part of a pro­gram, which may con­fuse some hosts.

Para­me­ter are now free from click­ing and pop­ping, which improves usabil­i­ty with automa­tion. This was pre­vi­ous­ly bro­ken, because the delay line point­ers were reset on any para­me­ter change, even if they didn’t had to.
