VirtualMIDISynth 2.6.0 - Beta

This thread will publish next VirtualMIDISynth 2.6.0 version beta/RC releases.

PLEASE POST BUG REPORTS OF BETA VERSION IN THIS THREAD, DO NOT START NEW ONES ;)

v.2.6.0-beta5 - 2019-02-06

  • FIX: Reverb and chorus max value now works also in GM/GM2 MIDI mode.
  • FIX: Reverb and chorus max value not correctly assigned at device (re)initializazion.
  • FIX: Removed misleading error message when Active Sense watchdog triggers.

v.2.6.0-beta4 - 2019-01-20

  • FIX: Reverb and chorus values were not correctly initialized, causing a "flat sound".
  • FIX: When Active Sense watchdog triggers the corresponding device is now only silenced instead of fully resetted.

v.2.6.0-beta3 - 2019-01-16

  • FIX: MIDI client crash if it's closed when Active Sense is enabled.

v.2.6.0-beta2 - 2019-01-07

  • FIX: Bad memory management causing MIDI client to crash when Active Sense watchdog triggers.
  • FIX: Improved efficiency of MIDI Active Sense messages detection.

v.2.6.0-beta1 - 2019-01-06

  • NEW: Added support for MIDI Active Sense message (0xFE), used by external MIDI hardware like keyboards and sequencers to detect MIDI connection issues (cable disconnected, broken connectors, unexpected power loss, ...).
    (see here: https://coolsoft.altervista.org/it/forum/thread/755)
  • FIX: MIDI Mixer activity LED does not reset when a client is forcibly closed by IPC watchdog.
  • FIX: Optimized IPC queue efficiency to avoid playing notes to remain stuck in case of queue overflow (expecially for Black MIDIs).

NOTE: downloads removed, official 2.6.0 version released.

Re: VirtualMIDISynth 2.6.0 - Beta

Beta4 changes the behavior of Active Sense watchdog trigger: now the device is only silenced and not fully resetted.

It also integrates a fix to an old bug (finally fixed): bad reverb & chorus values at startup.

hi, you can integrate asio drivers in the program, it would be very useful for large soundfonts ... thanks

How is ASIO related with "large soundfonts"?

Anyway there's already a request about ASIO integration.
Please start a new dedicated thread thread in wishlist forum for this...

Re: VirtualMIDISynth 2.6.0 - Beta

After I installed this MIDI driver under Windows XP Professional x64 Edition on VMware Workstation 14 Player, it throws me VirtualMIDISynth RUNDLL and timeout errors.

Same thing appears, when I open configurator, though, it managed to open after 2 errors.

Do you mean that the bug started with 2.6.0-beta or did it happen with the latest official 2.5.x too?

Sadly I don't have any way to test it on WinXP-x64 (not so common OS...), so there's no way for me to reproduce the bug on my side.
