Release Notes:
  • fixed Yosemite compatibility issues

Release Notes:
  • the plugin is now a 32bit/64bit Universal Binary
  • Mac OS 10.5 (or newer) and intel-processor is now required
  • Mac: because of changes in newer releases of Mac OSX, the setup installs the plugin-binaries into the default user plugin directory and not in the system plugin directory:
    "/Users/UserName/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins" instead "/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins"

SIR 2.4.010 Update (Windows only)

Release Notes:
  • compatibility issue fixed

  • improved compatibility with fxpansion vst-rtas adapter (mac + windows)



SIR 2.4.002 Update (Windows only)


Release Notes:
  • Setup in Windows Vista now automatically requires administrator rights, if UAC (User Account Control) is activated. This can prevent installation issues (dll can't be written in "Program Files" directory)



SIR 2.4.001 Update (Macintosh only)


Release Notes:
  • compatibility issue fixed



SIR 2.4.000 Update


Release Notes:
  • initial windows 64-bit release
  • triangle envelope functionality
  • finer Predelay adjustment
  • search functionality, if impulse file not found
  • ability to store EQ-presets (right mouse-click into EQ-Envelope)
  • improved project-portability between different workstations. (relative filename will be stored too, so if the default impulse-response location is different, the IR will be found) Please note: to use this function, the project has once to be saved with this new version.
  • support for "ctrl+mouse click", for one-button mouse macs



SIR 2.3.004 Update


Release Notes:
  • minor fix (improves compatibility with wavelab)



SIR 2.3.003 Update (Macintosh only hotfix)


Release Notes:
  • improves compatibility with fxpansion vst-rtas adapter (Mac)



SIR 2.3.001 Update


Release Notes:
  • minor fix



SIR 2.3.0 Update


Release Notes:
  • initial mac release
  • If you have two mono files, one with "L" and one with "R" at the end of the file name, you can click with right mouse button on one of these files to create a stereo file.
  • GUI now remembers that the time-line is in "Beat-Scale"-mode
  • When ever you convert a wav-file (or aif) to a sir-file, you will asked if you want to store it into the default impulse file directory or at the current location
  • fixed a cpu-glitch when play a loop in ableton live arrangement-view
  • internal convolution engine redesigned



Release Notes Deutsch:
  • intiale Mac Version
  • Einfaches zusammenf�hren zweier Mono-Files (wenn eines ein "L" und das andere ein "R" am Ende des Dateienamens hat) Das ist n�tzlich f�r spezielle Impulse-Response Bibliotheken die in diesem Format vorliegen.
  • Die Plugin-Oberf�che merkt sich nun den Status der Zeitleiste ("Beat-Scale"-mode)
  • Beim umwandeln von WAV-Dateien (oder AIF) in SIR-Dateien, wird gefragt ob die neue Datei in das Standard-Verzeichniss oder in den aktuellen Ordner geschrieben werden soll
  • CPU-Glitch bei Ableton Live Arrangment-Ansicht behoben
  • interne Convolution Engine �berarbeitet



SIR 2.2.0 Update


Release Notes:
  • improved host compatibility
  • more routing capabilities ( mono->mono, mono->stereo etc.)
  • better support for mono-channels
  • auto true stereo file creation:

    If you have two stereo files, one with "L" and one with "R" at the end of the file name, you can click with right mouse button on one of the files to create a true stereo file. This is useful for special impulse response libraries.

    stereo/true stereo tree: If you have three stereo files, with L/R/C at the end of the file name, you can click with right mouse button on one of the files to create a stereo/true stereo tree, like the with SIR2 provided impulses. This is useful for special impulse response libraries.



Release Notes Deutsch:
  • verbesserte Host-Kompatibilit�t
  • Mehr Routing optionen ( mono->mono, mono->stereo etc.)
  • Besser Support f�r Mono Kan�le
  • Automatische Erstellung von True-Stereo Files

    Liegen zwei Files, eins mit "L" und ein anderes mit "R" am Ende des Dateinnames vor, kann man durch klicken mit der rechten Mausstaste auf eines der Files automatischen ein True Stereo File erstellen. Das ist n�tzlich f�r spezielle Impulse-Response Bibliotheken die in diesem Format vorliegen.

    stereo/true stereo Baum: When drei Files vorliegen, mit "L", "R" oder "C" am Ende des Dateinamensfile name, kann man durch klicken mit der rechten Mausstaste auf eines der Files automatischen ein Stereo/True Stereo Baum erstellen, genause wie die in SIR2 mitgelieferten Impulse. Das ist n�tzlich f�r spezielle Impulse-Response Bibliotheken die in diesem Format vorliegen.

SIR 2.1.0 Update


Release Notes:
  • new impulse-file browser (with folders)
  • reset all parameters functionality in "Tools" menu
  • default impulse-file path can be changed in preferences
  • fixed some host compatibility issues (with wavelab & samplitude)
    Note: Due to several internal changes which were necessary to improve the host compatibility, the older release (2.0.0) isn't able to be used in projects, which already have been saved with the newer version (2.1.0)!
  • host sample rate change - volume compensation
    Due to the nature of convolution different sample-rates will produce different output levels. This function compensate this.
  • more detailed message when the impulse-file can't be located
  • new improved re-sampling algorithm (much better quality even in "low" mode)
    Note: If you want to use the old algorithm instead - select in preferences: Resampling Quality "compatibility (old) mode"
  • some minor fixes



Release Notes Deutsch:
  • neuer Impulse-file Browser (mit Ordner-Darstellung)
  • "reset all parameters" - Zur�cksetzen der Parameter im Tools-Menu
  • Standard Impulse-Verzeichnis kann nun im Einstellungs-Dialog ge�ndert werden
  • Verbesserung der Sequencer-Kompatiblit�t (Wavelab & Samplitude)
    Wichtig: Aufgrund von �nderungen die n�tig waren um die Host-Kompatibilit�t zu Verbessern, ist es mit der alten Version (2.0.0) nicht m�glich Projekte zu laden die bereits mit der neuen Version bearbeitet worden sind.
  • host sample rate change - Lautst�rke Kompensierung
    Lautst�rke Ausgleich bei �nderung der internen Samplefrequenz
  • Falls ein Impulse File nicht gefunden wird, wird jetzt angezeigt, wo es zuletzt Gefunden wurde.
  • Neuer verbesserter Resampling Alghorithmus (viel bessere Qualit�t auch im "low"-Modus)
    Wichtig: Um weiterhin den alten Alghorithmus zu benutzen k�nnen sie im Einstellungsdialog den "compatibility (old) mode" aktivieren
  • kleinere Fehlerbehebungen
