I’ve just released Nils‘ K1v version 1.2.6, which contains the following fixes:
[Fix] Limit maximum voice count to 32 voices per Multi section / Single to prevent very high CPU usage for sounds with a very large release time
[Fix] Hold Pedal behavior was incorrect, voices were stopped for notes that were still held while hold pedal is released
[Accuracy] Fix incorrect Autobend & Vibrato behavior when compared to the hardware. On the hardware, they are not independent per voice, instead, the first voice defines the modulation for all subsequent voices / notes
Nils‘ K1v version 1.23 has been released, which brings the following two new features:
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:
Default Stereo Output
Source / Multi 1
Source 1 in Single mode, Single 1 in Multi mode
Source / Multi 2
Source 2 in Single mode, Single 2 in Multi mode
Source / Multi 3
Source 3 in Single mode, Single 3 in Multi mode
Source / Multi 4
Source 4 in Single mode, Single 4 in Multi mode
Single 5, only used in Multi mode
Single 6, only used in Multi mode
Single 7, only used in Multi mode
Single 8, only used in Multi mode
VST3 Multi Channel Outputs
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.
I’ve just released version 1.14 of Nils‘ K1v – The Kawai K1 emulation VSTi/AU.
Biggest change is that it now also supports Multi presets. I added the 32 factory Multis and all Multis from the ROM cards, resulting in 384 Multi presets in total. As a sum, Nils‘ K1v now contains 1352 presets.
Of course, Multis can be edited, too. To add all of the new features, I modified the UI slightly. The Source Mute buttons have been moved to the Single Edit page, making space for the new Buttons MULTI and SYSTEM.
I’ve been able to fit four Multi sections on one page, arrow buttons allow to switch between sections 1-4 and 5-8.
Multis work as they do on the Kawai K1 hardware. Up to eight Singles can be combined in various ways to create either rich layered sounds or multiple zones on the keyboard.
The only difference between a K1 and K1v is that in Poly Mode VR (meaning variable), the polyphony is unlimited, while it was still limited to 16 or 8 voices in total on a K1 hardware.
The SYSTEM page is a new page that allows to change global parameters, basically it’s a copy of the K1 Midi Settings and supports specifying a Midi receive channel (previous versions always ran in Omni mode) and to disable Program Change processing, Sysex & more.
Global settings are saved as part of the DAW project.
Besides the improvements as pointed out above, some additional things have been added, such as cursor key preset navigation (Hallo Jürgen!) and of course, bugs have been fixed, too. The full change log can be found below.
[Fix] Wrong number of presets (832 instead of 968) were reported to plugin hosts
[Fix] Midi notes could get stuck in some cases
[Fix] Rounding issue in fixed key note number drop down menu that caused note B0 to be displayed although note C1 was selected
[Imp] K1v now supports Multi presets. All factory Multi presets have been added for all factory banks, making up a total of 384 Multis, or 1352 presets in total
[Imp] K1v now has a settings page to allow to specify the Midi receive channel, disable/enable receive & send of SysEx and more
[Imp] Midi receive channel can now also be modified by sending an Omni-Mode-Off control change from a specific Midi channel.
[Imp] Added ability to navigate through presets with cursor keys
[Imp] Code optimizations to reduce overall CPU usage
