Hi Randy, the Virta release notes erroneously include the seq changes for Aalto/Kaivo...

  • fixed issue with step sequencer not quantizing to current scale
  • fixed issue with step sequencer UI not reaching maximum when dragging

Oh yea, Sumu! I think you mentioned it in a newsletter. Don't have the email anymore but a google search reveals that it will be an additive synth. Any more news to share yet? :)

hi technobear,

as you say, there's no problem IF you keep recording while changing presets. but if you are wanting to change presets on an already recorded looping clip, that's when the problem arises.

hi sanne,

i know what you mean about the 're-enable autoamtion' kicking in when changing presets. one way that this could be avoided is if aalto had the option to 'lock out' its parameters. then you would just need to set any automated parameter to 'locked' so it wouldnt jump when switching presets. u-he's instruments have this and it's very handy and works great for just this scenario.

yea, virta can do this, no problem. try the demo!

add virta to a vocal track and paste this patch into it for a rough idea. you'll need to tweak it depending on vox levels, etc...

randy, while you're updating your plugs, any chance you could fix the patchcord multiselect deletion function? it has never worked for me on mac. as there's no actual delete key, fn+backspace should work, but this doesn't delete the patchcords. cheers.

Installed this on my MacBook Air running MacOS 10.12 Sierra (not my main machine!) and Virta isn't showing anymore in Live 9.6.2. I have prefs set up to accept apps from 'anywhere' so didn't see any Gatekeeper message. All other plugs still show (inc Aalto & Kaivo) after a full rescan in Live - it's just Virta beta missing.

not sure if this is what you're talking about here, but Aalto and Kaivo have long had a problem with retriggering the Envs (gate > trig input on the env1 of Kaivo) when the daw's midi notes are 'cheek to cheek' on a 16th grid. When the synths have only one voice, they will only play the first note of a 'machine gunning' row of 16th notes, and you have to shorten the the midi notes so that the synths can have time to react.

heh... you're right, technobear! i wasn't at my main daw computer when i replied and got my plugin routings muddled up (i've been messing a few new easter-sale plugin goodies as well as virta :)

it seems that as soon as you add a device infront of Virta (on a MIDI track), Virta stops receiving midi data - a Live shortcoming.

i'm now using it on a return track as you suggest - didn't know that midi could be routed to devices on return tracks, good to know!
