It has been a long jour­ney, and now AriesVerb advances to the next lev­el. The improve­ments are many, and the space on this page is too short to list them. If you have been enjoy­ing AriesVerb already, think of the new one as the old one, plus:

  • Graph­ic User Interface.
  • Per­for­mance optimization.
  • Mul­ti­tap mode (high density).
  • More mod­u­la­tion options.
  • Pre­set Library + Browser.

The full release notes explain­ing each of these items are avail­able on the prod­uct page.

Beta test successful — new product page online

I am proud to annouce the closed beta test for AriesVerb has com­plet­ed suc­cess­ful­ly. This was an impor­tant stage in the devel­op­ment, dur­ing which the new inter­face was put to the test, as well as the improved sound engine. It was pos­si­ble to iron out many bugs and rough edges. Respect to all volunteers.

The cur­rent ver­sion is 0.7 and will be avail­able over the next cou­ple of days. There is already a new prod­uct page online with all the details, sound exam­ples and the man­u­al, here.

New screenshots and sound examples

Pre­sent­ed here are screen­shots and sound exam­ples like­ly to be rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the final prod­uct. Com­pared to the lat­est pub­lic release (0.4a), the algo­rithm is now improved sig­nif­i­cant­ly with­out tax­ing too much on the CPU. Also, the work on the user inter­face is now most­ly finished.

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.
