Kaivo 1.3.3 beta available

I've fixed a few issues and uploaded a new beta version for intrepid Kaivo users: Kaivo1.3.3b1.

This beta is for Mac OS only. I plan to ship the final Mac version as well as the Windows version next week. I'll also update the other plugins with the relevant fixes then.


  • bugfix: the sequencer was not retriggering from reset input
  • bugfix: .kbm mappings were not always using all notes
  • bugfix: .kbm mappings were not setting reference note properly
  • fixed a rare condition where the metal string resonator could lock up

If you noticed any changes in how your patches behaved after installing Kaivo 1.3.1, hopefully the sequencer fix will get them back in shape.

Hello Randy,
can you share any news concerning new non beta updates - maybe with performance optimizations - or is it still too early for that? Thank you.

I'm finishing up this bugfix release currently. Please stay tuned!

I will. No hurry. I only am curious :)
Happy programming.

Should I use this instead of 1.3.2 ?

If you are interested in helping out with testing, you can use the beta and give me feedback. If you are more interested in getting music made, use a stable version (in this case, 1.3.2). This beta process has been longer than usual and hopefully will be wrapping up soon.

Hello Randy,
can you tell already when there will be further updates for PC users? I still get this KAIVO freeze in Cubase as described earlier.

KAIVO and AALTO have become (beside the fantastic and unmatched U-he Synth) my absolute favorite Synth and I absolutely am looking forward for a stable and (maybe) out of beta-status KAIVO update.

Best wishes and happy and creative programming and a joyful new year to you :)

Thanks for the good words. I'm looking forward to getting this release out ASAP so I can focus on the next plugin! Hopefully, before this month is over. Thanks for your patience.

No problem - Good things take time :)
