ForumsSoftware ← aalto 1.5

the version number reads 1.4b6 !?

ok found the error but now all my xmas specials are gone !!!

hmm... 'key trig' state isn't loaded from presets at all here. lots of my patches use 'key trig' but they all load with it switched off.

Hi Randy,

With the VST64 version of 1.5, in Ableton Live, 9.1.1, once I change from the default patch, Aalto does not respond to the computer keyboard for MIDI note commands. If I disable and then reenable computer keyboard input, Aalto does respond. The AU version does not have this issue. I tend to prefer using the VST versions of plugins because at least in my experience, Live seems to like them more. Will use AU version of Aalto for the time being.

Also, I am noticing a pronounced increase in cpu usage with 1.5.

These are the first two things that have come up. Will report other things if they occur.



Aalto 1.5, MacBook Pro, 8 GB RAM, Mavericks 10.9.1, 2.7 Ghz Intel Core Duo, Ableton Live 9.1.1 64-bit.

Hi Adam,

Thanks for the feedback. I'll look into the key issue. I have fixed this in the past but unfortunately it's always a moving target.

re:CPU, you may see a heavier load if you have a Retina Macbook Pro, because Aalto has to draw four times as many pixels to the screen! If you close the window the performance should be on par with the previous version. The latency fix also takes up a bit more CPU than previously, but on the order of 10% difference.

Thanks, Randy. Actually couldn't bring myself to buy the Retina version. I'm too old school to have everything affixed to the motherboard. I have this irrational need to know I can swap out RAM or a hard drive! :-)
