Radium 5.9.46 released

Post by kjetil » 14 Mar 2019 19:21

In this release, the pan and width effects are included in the wet signal by default. Before this release, they were always included in the dry signal. Now this can be configured in the song properties window.

Starting from this release, Radium requires macOS 10.12 or newer. Before this release, it required 10.10 or newer.

Most of the work for this release has been spent upgrading 3rd party libraries. JUCE have been updated from 5.3.2 to 5.4.3, and Qt has been updated from 5.10.0 to 5.12.1. In addition, all system libraries for macOS and Windows have been updated, and some system libraries have been updated for Linux. For Windows, Radium is now compiled with gcc 7.4 instead of gcc 7.2.

Besides this, there's a few bug fixes and minor features. See changelog below.

Changes 5.9.44 -> 5.9.46:
  • Windows/VST: Add a "DPI" checkbox to the VST plugin
    header when DPI is not 96, i.e. when either the
    display is scaled, or a hiDPI monitor is used.
    When unchecking the DPI checkbox, the plugin GUI
    will be reopened with a DPI of 96 instead. This
    will both let Windows do the scaling (causing
    blury and larger graphics), and in some cases fix
    bugs caused by plugins not handling a
    non-standard DPI. You need Windows 10 for this
    to work.
  • OpenGL: Remove startup warning that Radium hasn't
    supported high DPI display for a very long time.
    It's been a pretty long time now.
  • Error message window: Position in the middle of the
  • Progress window: Add a minimize button in the upper
    right corner.
  • Mixer: Don't update graphics for the modular mixer
    when it's not visible.
  • Mixer strips: Fix note intencity circle only
    lighting up/down when the main mixer was visible.
  • GUI: Turn off menu and combobox animation. Screwed
    up menus on osx when using Qt 5.12. (Think the
    menu animation actually brought back the same bug
    that caused me to upgrade Qt from 5.7 to 5.10.)
  • Mixer: Fix error message sometimes popping up when
    showing popup menu.
  • JUCE patch for Linux: Display ALSA MIDI client
    names as clientName + ": " + portName to avoid
    mixup for ports with the same port name belonging
    to different clients.
  • JUCE patch for Linux: Make sure all ALSA MIDI
    connections and ALSA MIDI ports are publicly shown
    (for instance in the qjackctl patchbay). Not
    showing them only creates confusion.
  • JUCE patch for Linux: Set realtime priority for the
    MIDI input thread.
  • Build: Update Juce from 5.3.2 to 5.4.3.
  • Linux: Don't read from configuration file when
    opening a native VST gui. (Race condition that
    could have caused various trouble.)
  • Init: Fix 1-10 seconds freeze that sometimes
    happened during program startup.
  • Windows/Sequencer: Fix displaying non-ascii
    characters in the audio file browser.
  • OSX: Fix file requester not filtering out entries
    when loading/saving mod/midi/xm/rad.
  • OSX: Radium requires 10.12 or newer.
  • Editor: When appending new block, let it have the
    same number of tracks and lines as the current
    block. (Same behavior as insert block.)
  • Instruments: Include the pan and width effects in
    the wet signal by default. This can be changed in
    the song properties window. When loading older
    songs, pan and width is not included in the wet
    signal, since that could change the sound.
  • Instruments: Disable the dry/wet slider when
    instrument is bypassed.
  • API:
    • New functions: setIncludePanAndDryInWetSignal,
      includePanAndDryInWetSignal, appendBase64Strings.
    • Add optional argument "text_is_base64" to gui_drawText
