    Product Update 5.0.3.11645 (Mac only)

    June 2, 2016:

    (Free update for all version 5 product owners)

    Fixes:

    • Audio Unit instances of Soundtoys plug-ins are now recalling automation data correctly in Ableton Live, Studio One, and Digital Performer on Mac OS X
      • After updating to 5.0.2, Soundtoys Audio Unit automation that was created with Soundtoys 5.0.1 or earlier in Ableton Live would be erased when the session was loaded.
      • 5.0.3 cannot recall Ableton automation data that was erased by 5.0.2, but will be able to properly load sessions created with 5.0.1 or earlier. For users who lost automation data with 5.0.2, we recommend reverting to a session backup created before you had saved it with Soundtoys 5.0.2 installed.

    Product Update 5.0.2.11559 (Mac) & 5.0.2.11552 (PC)

    May 23, 2016

    (Free update for all version 5 product owners)

    Features:

    • Plug-ins with the Analog Mode option now have a new “Op Amp” style to replace the Version 4 “Digital” style that was removed. In the previous version 5 release sessions using “Digital” defaulted to “Clean”. They now default to “Op Amp”. This will address the sound differences that some customers heard when recalling old sessions.
    • PrimalTap has a new Auto Gain switch added to the Tweak menu. When enabled, the output will automatically be lowered proportionally as the input gain is raised. This is the new default behavior for PrimalTap. Old sessions and user presets will open with Auto Gain set to “Off.”
    • Preset names, when edited, now display in italics to indicate an edited state

    Fixes:

    • Preset names are now displayed correctly when sessions that were last saved with V4 are recalled (instead of reading “Default”).
    • Fixed an issue in PrimalTap where the Rolloff feature was not filtering the feedback loop as intended. (Note: this update will change the sound of some presets and sessions but is the correct and intended sound and behavior of PrimalTap).
    • Fixed an issue where Devil-Loc and Devil-Loc Deluxe knobs could jump to minimum or maximum when clicked in a certain area.
    • Fixed a problem where the delayed signal in EchoBoy might drop out under certain conditions.
    • PhaseMistress default settings will now sound identical to the default preset.
    • Preset names are now pre-populated when using the Save As… option.
    • Resolved a Windows problem where alerts could be hidden behind other windows.
    • Fixed issues that would cause the compare light to come on unnecessarily with certain plugins and presets.

    Issues:

    • Audio Unit instances of Soundtoys are not recalling automation data correctly in Ableton Live, Digital Performer, and Studio One on Mac OS X.
    • This issue was fixed in 5.0.3, which is now available for download in Soundtoys user accounts. Please see above for more information.
