In the news:

If I bothered to post it...

Updated "notelogic"

21 April 2016

I've updated and partially replaced the voice-allocator MIDI processing plug-in documentation page. See the link on the effects page to download it.

Updated alpha

21 April 2016

I've uploaded the latest alpha (r712) "route-atouille" which includes a routing chunk.

See the alpha page for other changes and email me with any comments/questions.

Next I'd like to store a PCM chunk in projects (and therefore fxb files) which will make the PCM feature much more useful.

KVR OSC

02 March 2016

I've temporarily removed the alpha page for the ongoing KVR OSC (one-synth-challenge) involving Xhip.

The alpha page will be back up after I have the next version available and once the OSC is over.

Menu arrows

12 February 2016

Once in a while I'll suddenly find something that bugs me. Likely it has bugged me for a long time when some change makes it far more bothersome.

In this case the menus in Xhip have always needed some sort of arrow icon to mark sub-menus although at such low resolution it was reasonable to use ASCII art.

With the introduction of the resizable GUI this was no longer reasonable at all.

New alpha

09 February 2016

I've released a new alpha of Xhip.

This release includes many small changes, most notable is support for font resources. The GUI when resized will now utilize the nearest sized font. These are in a custom format embedded in the plugin and so can not yet be customized.

There are a few remaining issues related to placement of text relative to bitmap graphics and the kerning (space between letters) for these fonts is far from ideal and must be manually adjusted.

The next items on the list include updates to the GUI code, buttons (replacement with menus) and state-saving for PCM, route and FX functions.
