Venom 2.2.0 has been released.
Please don’t ignore the documentation! There is valuable information there to help you make the most of the modules. But below is a summary of the new modules and features.
MIX 4 is inspired by the VCV Fundamental CV MIX, but with many added features
- An extra 4th input
- A final mix amplifier/attenuator
- Multiple modes (scaling ranges) for the knobs
- Knobs for unpatched inputs show the resultant constant voltage instead of a scaling factor
- Options for final mix DC offset removal
- Options for final mix hard clipping, or soft clipping (saturation)
- The soft clipping option includes an option for oversampling to reduce/eliminate aliasing that can be produced by very hot signals. Most (all?) existing modules with soft clipping do not control aliasing.
MIX 4 STEREO is simply a stereo version of MIX 4
VCA MIX 4 is inspired by the VCV Fundamental VCA MIX, but again with added features
- All the features of MIX 4, plus…
- Significantly more compact than the VCV module by using knobs instead of faders.
- Unpatched inputs in CV mode can produce constant CV, just like MIX 4
- VCAs can be configured for linear or exponential response
- VCAs can be unipolar (“normal” VCA), or bipolar (ring modulator)
- Patched VCA outputs can optionally be excluded from the final mix
- A CHAIN input without attenuator to chain modules without sacrificing any of 4 VCAs. If all 4 VCA outputs are patched and the exclude option is enabled, then the CHAIN coupled with the MIX knob can function as a 5th VCA.
VCA MIX 4 STEREO is simply a stereo version of VCA MIX 4
Global Plugin Enhancements
- Each Venom plugin parameter (knob, switch, button, etc.) has been given context menu options to lock or unlock the parameter.
- Each Venom plugin module has been given module context menu options to lock or unlock all parameters of that module instance.
- The new parameter lock/unlock options do not apply to Rhythm Explorer as it already had its own parameter locking implementation.
- Recurse Stereo: The right input now remains normalled to the left input when bypassed, which in turn can affect the bypassed right output.
- Removed the hidden VCO that will never be released. When/if I do release a VCO, it will be entirely different code.
