AIKO v1.2

By 03/08/2017 12 Comments

Like half a year has passed since last update. My current main job is particularly busy in winter, so I’m a bit off from GUI work.
But now a long awaited update is shipped!

LFO on the Leftmost

Some people suggest that it should be more natural for LFOs to be placed left. Now I know that many synthesizers have that layout.

  • Moog Voyeur
  • Moog Subphatty
  • Jupiter-8
  • Juno-60
  • JP-8080
  • Prophet-5

So does AIKO.
Those who like the old layout can still revert back the style manually. (Read the userguide.)

Dynamic Display Improvement

In Digital OSC, dynamic displaying works for all waveform types. But unlike MULTISAW, only either parameter affects the display. This is due to the limitation of U-he’s theming system.

Next One …… Bazille!

The best work ever I made! The fundamental principle is the same as AIKO: Neither too much like hardware, nor too simple. Clear to see, easy to use and somehow cute.

Ghost Mode

I’ve always added additional features into U-he skins. This time, the killer feature is the Ghost Mode.

Just by turning the “Ghost” switch on, all the cables are hidden. You can concentrate on tuning parameters without being frustrated by the cables all around.

“Hide inactive effects” is another great feature. This needs a special trick! U-he guys might not come up with this.

The new theme is named “Tokyo Ghost“.

It’s almost done and now on the final stage… testing the usability by synthesizing sounds practically. Stay tuned!
