G-Stomper Beat Studio 3.0 and G-Stomper VA-Beast 1.3 BETA

Postby planet-h » Tue Jan 28, 2014 12:58 pm

Hi everybody

Finally, the waiting is over!
G-Stomper Beat Studio 3.0 as well as G-Stomper VA-Beast 1.3 are now in BETA state.

What you get (in short):
G-Stomper Beat Studio 3.0 has the VA-Beast Synthesizer included, provides a complete new polyphonic step sequencer, Midi support and tons of other improvements, actually a new application.
G-Stomper VA-Beast 1.3 comes with sequencing functionality as well, the same sequencer as used in G-Stomper 3.0, + it’s up to 12 times multitimbral now.
See the detailed description below..

For the ongoing BETA, I’m using the Google Play Beta testing framework for the first time:

To join the beta testing, please send me pm (or an E-Mail) with your google email, actually the one with which you’re using on Google Play.

Once I got your google mail, I'll invite you to the G-Stomper BETA Testing community (this is required by the beta framework).
Important:
To be able to receive an invitation to a google community, you need to join google+ with that account first, if you’re not connected already. To do so, just visit https://plus.google.com on your computer. Then log on to your google account and click Google+ on top of the page. Once there, click join, that’s it.

All members of this community will get a beta opt-in link, which is only working if you’re member of the G-Stomper BETA Testing community.
Once you visited that link and clicked Opt-In on the page, you’ll receive the BETA’s as regular updates from Google Play.
Note: You have to do this only once. From the moment you opt-in, you’ll get the beta’s until you opt-out again

This is it for now. I'm really excited and curious to hear your experience;)
Hope you're enjoying the new Release.

    The full feature list of the VA-Beast Synthesizer can be checked out at the KVR product page:
    http://www.kvraudio.com/product/g-stomper-va-beast-synthesizer-by-planet-h-com
  • VA-Beast Poly Grid (Polyphonic Step Sequencer with up to 12 tracks)
    The usage of the poly grid is similar to the existing note grid, but with the following enhancements:
    Polyphonc Sequencing: Up to 10 concurrent voices per Track
    Variable Note length: 1..128
    Variable Velocity: 0..127
    Selective Note Shifting and editing.
  • VA-Beast Full-Size Piano
    A view with 2 full size Piano Rolls, each with independent octave settings.
  • USB Midi Support
    You can map up to 13 different midi channels, one 12 to the different synthesizer tracks, and one to a merge of all sampler tracks.
    The sampler/drum tracks are mapped in an non-tonal way, all tracks (T1-24) are mapped to the noteNo 48-71:C3-A#4.
    Support for: Midi Clock, Start, Stop, Continue, NoteOn/Off, Velocity, ModWheel and PitchBend.

Most important changes (audio core):

  • VA-Beast Synthesizer Core
  • All Filters have been rebuilt from scratch
  • Many performance improvements and bugfixes in the Effects
  • Proper Resampling Algorithm in the sample loader, playback and audio exporter
  • The Master/Sum EFX provides now all Effect Types (like in the efx section)
  • The engine runs now in native samplerate, e.g. 48kHz on Nexus7 devices.
  • Major performance improvements in the audio core

Most important changes (Sequencer):

  • Motion Sequencing support for the BPM/Tempo (disabled by default: can be enabled in the settings dialog)
  • New Roll feature for the samplers (known from many Grooveboxes) to send 2 or 4 triggers in a row for a single step. This allows drum rolls with a time signature up to 1/256

Most important changes (GUI):

  • The automation of the EFX chain switch is now bound to the efx automation (no longer to pattern related). It can be cleared and initialized in the EFX view like the other EFX params.
  • New fader and button tooltips (replacing the previous display values)
  • New Efx Chain switch in the EFX section
  • New State 'VT1-12' on EFX Edit, Master Edit and Mixer to switch to the new Synthesizer Tracks

  • New Mod Menu on Mixer View
  • New Efx Edit + Efx Send switch on all Sequencer Views as well as on Drum Pads
  • New Efx Edit switch on the Mixer view
  • New Song Mode Controls Layout
