Hi I just released another Aalto bank:
this one goes from extremes of soft, evolving, minimalistic cloud-like sounds to hard, clanking, chiming mechanical polyrythmic sounds - some even morph between both!
super sounds! good names too, which is almost as important :-)
Did not work in windows ... the latest windows installer installs version 1.4b6; this soundset apparently expects 1.4.1, the same version as the developer used on his Mac. All but a few of the patches are currently useless on the PC version of aalto.
These patches all now function perfectly on Windows aalto. IMHO they are really excellent ... wonderful and inspiring sounds. Thanks to Stephen for getting this fix done during a usually busy holiday season.
An Aalto instance won't load a preset that is made in a newer version of the plugin. Unfortunately, since I put out a minor Mac update this can cause problems with moving presets from Mac to Windows now.
I'll look at ways to avoid this issue with the next update.
In the meantime I have edited every patch that wasn't loading on Win systems (i.e. all the ones made or updated in the 1.4.1 Mac version) in a text editor to an earlier Aalto version. I have tested them all on my old Win laptop and they are loading and sounding the same as the Mac versions so I have posted an updated zip on my site (also I have emailed the fixed versions to people who emailed me about the problem). Thanks Randy for your advice.
