[ Known Issue ] [macOS VST] This and previous releases will crash Steinberg Cubase version 9.5 – 10.5 when closing project or when removing the plug-in from the DAW. We are trying to figure this out, sorry for the inconvenience!
[ Known Issue ] [macOS AudioUnit] If plug-in is not visible in your DAW after install, quit the DAW and run command “killall -9 AudioComponentRegistar” in console and try again. If that doesn’t help, reboot your Mac.

Version 3 framework is under development, which will fix issues above and adds AAX, VST3 + standalone app for free!

Version 1.4.0 / 2020-02-04

Version 1.3.0 / 2018-11-09

[ Fixed ] Aligned librarian text entries a bit better when using GUI size *0,75 or *1,25.

[ Fixed ] MIDI input status LED should be more responsive now.

Version 1.2.5 / 2017-10-17

[ Fixed ] Resolved “Connection time-out” issue when microKorg has MIDI Clock set in Internal mode. Now plug-in sends MIDI Clock -> External message to hardware if data does not match with the plug-in. This only happens while initializing plug-in. Note that if clock is set to internal mode, data does not get called properly and this cause time-out issues.
[ Fixed ] Plug-in caused DAW to crash if tempo sync to host was activated and DAW was closed.
[ Fixed ] Plug-in tried to send MIDI messages to hardware before it was connected.
[ Fixed ] Plug-in was recalling hardware device ID (Global MIDI Channel) from wrong SysEx byte.

Version 1.2.4 / 2017-10-13

[ Fixed ] MIDI and connection error fixes. Now when program is changed from microKorg, it should update the plug-in user interface accordingly. Check and make sure your microKorg MIDI channel is set to 1 with EDIT SELECT 2 -> MIDI -> MIDI CH = 1.
[ Fixed ] Renaming a patch in librarian did not work as expected.
[ Fixed ] User was able to change top bank in Librarian view after pasting, renaming a patch or requesting patch data. This should not be possible until data is saved to file or changes are discarded by the user.

Version 1.2.3 / 2017-09-30

[ New ] Randomizer. Yes – user can now randomize Timbre 1 or Timbre 2. Randomizer button is below the main screen. If section locks are active, those parts of the sound are not randomized.
[ New ] Master Keyboard selector in Global Settings page. When Master Keyboard switch is on, messages from microKorg will be ignored unless the plug-in channel is chosen in DAW.
[ New ] MIDI Input stated led now blinks when receiving SysEx data too.
[ Fixed ] Filter Type, Delay and Mod FX parameters now work as expected.
[ Fixed ] Librarian Copy/Paste and Drag/Drop functions fixed.

[ Fixed ] If Global Data was requested from hardware, plug-in did not handle the data in proper way.
[ Fixed ] If Global MIDI channel was set to different value than 1, MIDI messages in some cases were sent to wrong channel by the plug-in.
[ Other ] Some invisible changes that makes life a lot better!
