What’s new in v2.31 ?

All plug-ins:

  • 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 2.29?

  • Fixed a bug that caused entering frequency values by note name (e.g. “A4”) to always result in the maximum frequency value, and potentially cause a crash as well.

All plug-ins

  • 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 2.28?

All plug-ins:

  • 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.
