Nils‘ K1v – v1.2.4 released

Nils‘ K1v version 1.2.4 has been released, which contains the following improvements / fixes:

  • [Imp] The settings menu now allows you to toggle between Stereo output and 8-Channel output. This should resolve issues that some users experienced after the latest Ableton update
  • [Fix] VST3 version of plugin was not detected/rejected on Mac OS
  • [Fix] Be more tolerant when receiving patches via SysEx (MidiQuest might generate invalid SysEx packets that we can work around and still load)
  • [Fix] Reduce required amount of dependencies for Linux variants

Nils‘ K1v: VST3 & Apple M1 support

Nils‘ K1v version 1.23 has been released, which brings the following two new features:

VST3 Plugin

The plugin is now available as VST3 for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. The VST3 version is identical to the VST2 version but adds support for multichannel output.

Note that, by default, only the Stereo Out is active. If you want to use Multi Channel Output, activate the buses in your DAW manually.

Note: As soon as one of the multi outputs is activated, the Stereo Output is silenced.

The VST3 plugin has the following outputs:

Stereo OutDefault Stereo Output
Source / Multi 1Source 1 in Single mode, Single 1 in Multi mode
Source / Multi 2Source 2 in Single mode, Single 2 in Multi mode
Source / Multi 3Source 3 in Single mode, Single 3 in Multi mode

Issues? Feedback is welcome! 👍

Apple M1 Support

Support for Apples new ARM-based SoC named M1 has been added to all Mac OS plugin versions. There are no separate downloads as the latest build now contains a so called „universal binary“ which contains the binary for both the x86_x64 and ARM64 based processors.

This should give a performance boost on Apples new SoC. It would be nice if you would report back if everything works as intended 👍 as I don’t have an Apple M1.
