It’s beginning to look like the next Kairatune update will be out very soon now! This will be the release i’ve been dreaming of since i released the 1.0. The update is focused on performance and compatibility, and is mostly aimed to raise the quality of the instrument a notch, to bring it more happy users and to make the current users even happier.
Updating from version 1.1
Those of you, planning to update from a prior version, should be aware that there has been some drastic changes in the inner workings of the plugin. The changes have involved parameter rearrangements. As a result of this, all parameter automation in projects made with prior version of the plugin, will not work with the next update. All your custom sounds can be loaded, but in case you have lots of parameter automation on your Kairatune instrument tracks, i think you should render those before updating. Old versions will remain available to download of course, in case you ever need to return to some parts that don’t work with the upcoming release. Just in case this sounds confusing, this concerns only parameter automation recorded to your digital audio workstation. Any recorded MIDI, i.e. notes and controllers, are not parameter automation and will work just as before. Parameter automation itself will work in new projects with the next version, but on old projects you will need to record all automation anew to a new track with the new version of the plugin. If you don’t have a clue what i’m talking about here, you most likely have nothing to worry about. I’ll give a thorough explanation in the readme.txt bundled with the update. Just wanted to let you know before the release.
That been said, i am really happy to find this update so close to release! I think it’s fair to say that Kairatune has not been the most frequent on updates – has it been a year since 1.1.1? I know some of you have been waiting for this and i am truly grateful for your patience!
