What’s new in v1.24?
Fixed an issue with text entry for parameters on macOS Catalina.
Fixed occasional crashes on macOS when loading projects in some DAWs (e.g. Logic Pro), related to having PACE-protected third-party plug-ins in the same session.
Fixed occasional crashes in Bitwig on macOS, when opening sessions that contain FabFilter VST3 plug-ins with side chain support.
Fixed interface scaling issues on macOS 10.14 and higher, when dragging a plug-in interface between Retina and non-Retina monitors.
All VST3 and AU plug-ins with now show up in the DAW without the ‘FabFilter ‘ or ‘FF ‘ prefix in their name.
On macOS, all plug-ins are now 64-bit only.
Minor bug fixes and improvements.
The updated plug-ins are fully compatible with previous versions.
What’s new in version 1.21?
Added visualization of the plug-in input and output levels on Pro Tools control surfaces.
Fixed a bug that could cause the plug-in to stay in a triggered state if Enable MIDI is turned off while the plug-in is currently triggering on a MIDI note.
Updated plug-in for full compatibility with Mac hosts built specifically for macOS 10.14 (Mojave), such as Logic Pro 10.4.4, running under macOS 10.14.0 or 10.14.1. Previously this could lead to an all-black plugin interface.
Improved the way settings are saved when multiple plug-in instances are open to make sure the last setting that was chosen is saved correctly for new instances.
Added support for 300% scaling on 8K displays (High DPI) on Windows.
Fixed an issue that could cause incorrect scaling of the plug-in interface in Cubase 10 or Live 10 on High DPI displays in combination with certain graphics drivers on Windows.
Added a Refresh item to the Options submenu of the presets menu: this makes it possible to manually refresh the menu (and any V1/V2 Preset Folder submenus if available).
Fixed a bug on Mac that could cause program changes received by one plug-in to be forwarded to other FabFilter plug-in instances.
Various minor bug fixes and improvements.
What’s new in version 1.19?
Fixed possible crash on Windows when using 150% scaling (High DPI).
Fixed possible crashes in Logic Pro X, which occasionally tries to initialize plug-ins with invalid/uninitialized buffers.
Fixed possible crash in Nuendo 7 on macOS when closing a plugin.
Fixed issues with key stroke stealing on Windows when using the Avid S6 control surface.
Fixed incorrect appearance of plug-in interfaces in Live 10 in High DPI mode.
The VST 2.4 plug-in will now automatically adapt its channel layout to match the audio/track it is placed on. Note that the separate “(Mono)” version of the plug-ins are still included for backwards compatibility.
Fixed a bug that could cause a crash when moving the mouse over the right edge of a menu with icons.
Small bug fixes and improvements.
What’s new in version 1.18?
Added a workaround for a bug in Ableton Live that caused latency compensation to work incorrectly when loading a session that sets the parameters such that the plug-in doesn’t have latency, in combination with a default preset that does introduce latency. This only occurred with the VST plugin format and caused Live to use the latency from the default preset.
Fixed a bug that caused the plug-in interface to use more memory than needed if the display was not enabled.
Improved Avid S6 page tables mappings in the AAX plug-ins, now more closely following Avid’s conventions for a better workflow.
