I just released Nils‘ K1v at version 1.12. It contains two bug fixes and one important improvement, as I mentioned earlier in my development blog: Velocity Curves now very closely match those of the Kawai K1 hardware.
The release is available for all platforms and can be obtained from the Download Page
[Fix] One-shot waveforms (drums & others) were played looped
[Fix] Mac AU version crash when saving the plugin state (100% crash in Digital Performer 10)
[Imp] Velocity Curves are now properly implemented and very closely match those of the K1 hardware. If you are interested in details, feel free to visit the K1 development blog
Finally, after waiting several weeks, Kawai reported back to me that they have no issues with me developing a Kawai K1 emulation. This is great news for me personally as I was still concerned that Kawai could respond in a way that would bring me in trouble. But they did not! 👍 They even sent high quality Kawai logos that I’m allowed to integrate into the plugin, I’m impressed, big thanks to Kawai!
Furthermore, there are now Linux & Mac versions of the VST. For Linux, there are .deb and .rpm packages in both 32 bits and 64 bits. The Mac version requires a 64 bit OS, minimum version is OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
For Mac, an AU version will definitely come. LV2 for Linux, too! Stay tuned.
Special thanks to all donators and to all testers at the KvR forum, a lot of people helped making the plugin available for Linux & Mac by testing on their machines.
