WIP: Xhip menu

11 May 2016

I've been working away little by little at getting the buttons replaced by a single menu in Xhip. This likely will mean some shifting of various elements due to the space made available by elimination of the buttons.

As you can see I've moved the peak meter LEDs and made some other minor adjustments around the GUI.

At this point the functions on the menu are only half-way implemented. Most of the basic functions like "load preset" and "randomize preset name" work but there is a lot more to do including an addition of the ability to display/load/replace/remove CC map and PCM entries.

The next version will also include a new file ".xhipstate" and I may decide to change the name of new presets and banks to ".xhippreset" and ".xhipbank" due to the fact these files are now in an entirely incompatible format with version 7.

Other stuff will also be possible with the menu. It is a little more work to go through the menu than hitting a button although the buttons were for rarely accessed features while it makes more sense to focus GUI real-estate on those elements most often used.

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.


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.
