Nils‘ K1v updated to version 1.04

Nils‘ K1v has been updated to version 1.04, which brings the following improvements & fixes:

  • [Accuracy] LFO behaviour didn’t completely match hardware behaviour, especially for higher speed values
  • [IMP] Window size is remembered when the plugin editor is closed and reopened
  • [FIX] In Solo mode, audio clicks were audible when playing a note while another one was still playing
  • [FIX] Audio processing could lead to clicks/pops in some hosts. I personally
    didn’t experience this so feedback & if possible a recording of the issue would
    help. Thanks 😊

Universal Manager updated after 15 years

I still get requests related to my Universal Manager sometimes. Its a program I created 18 years ago, the latest update now being 15 years old. It was a litte tool that was able to talk to MIDI hardware to exchange & organize presets.

Recently, a mail arrived regarding Windows 10 compatibility issues / crashes.

I completely forgot about that litte, but very helpful program. Due to the fact that I work on a K1 emulation VSTi and I have to test a lot on a real K1 to do this, this program came in very handy.

So i converted that old project to a recent version of my development environment, cleaned up the code, even found some issues that I was able to fix and added some improvements. And of course, I added support for the Kawai K1.

Feel free to grab the latest version here. Changes:

  • Upgraded development environment to fix Windows 10 compatibility issues
  • Fixed memory corruption issue when parsing MIDI messages
  • Open File dialog now remembers the last used extension and preselects it (either .syx or .mid)
  • You can now load multiple files in Open File dialog by using multi selection
  • Added ability to specify a checksum starting value for checksum calculation the idf file (see html manual)
  • Added support for Kawai K1 Single to instrument definition
