ZynAddSubFX 3.0.4 - The “Calamine” Release
March 10th 2019

Hello everyone,

I’m glad to announce the 3.0.4 release of ZynAddSubFX. This release features a number of user interface visual refinements, the LFO random mode, as well as improved parameter resolution for two add synth volume parameters. Additionally for packagers, this release is now compatible with the new MXML 3.0 library API.

For those using the gumroad builds, those should be up in the next few days. Windows users should be mindful that since 3.0.3, there appears to be a regression in the startup of the standalone GUI. So, if there are issues there, it may be best to use the plugin version or 3.0.3 version until that’s fixed. If there’s anyone building for that platform who’s interested in tracing the root cause of that issue, let us know.

Changelog highlights:
- Add scripting to zyn-fusion UI for automated screen capture
- Add double click to reset sliders
- Add random LFO mode
- Add compatibility with MXML 3.0
- Enhance modulation volume parameter resolution
- Enhance global volume parameter resolution
- Enhance state variable filter interpolation
- General UI Cleaning
- Fix pops with note aftertouch
- Fix pad synth export
- Fix envelope watchpoint visualization
- Fix .xlz load/save in fusion UI

And here’s the contribution score card by number of commits since 3.0.3: (134e46f633)

For anyone interested in seeing what new things to expect in Zyn over the next year, I’d recommend taking a look at the zynaddsubfx-user mailing list where students are actively discussing their ideas for this year’s Google Summer of Code. This is Zyn’s first involvement as a mentoring organization and there should be some interesting projects as a result.

Now go make some noise!

Great that the Summer of Code workforce has eyes on the prize.
And zynaddsubfx surely is a prize. I was exploring the new (gumroad) gui
the other day, visually reminded me of high-end commercial software,
and the sound always has been there. (I for one was never displeased with
the basic interface, it's still a welcome sight.)

A world-class per-sound arpeggiator would be my feature request
for SOC
