    MW2E Version 5.2.8

    Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

    Main Feature: Tuning tables can now be edited based on pitch classes with presets supplied for pythagorean and other musical temperaments.

    BTW, if you feel annoyed by getting an email of every new post, remember that you can always manage your subscription from the main page.

    MW2E Version 5.2.6

    Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

    Main Feature: Microwave I user tuning and velocity tables

    User velocity tables T1/T2 (T3/T4 if a memory card is installed) are available as multi program parameter. User tuning tables can be selected either for a sound program or as multi program parameter. It is possible to reset all these tables to reasonable values (proportional in/out velocity relations resp. key-pitch and flattened zero detune) to have a nice starting point.

    Registered users can update by selecting the “Check For Update” menu item.

    MW2E Version 5.2.5

    Friday, November 29th, 2013

    Main Feature: Dump SysEx File

    Big sound- and multi program banks are cut down into a stream of single patch dumps. Otherwise it is nearly impossible to load these banks into the Microwave I without getting the annoying “Bulk Dump Error” message.

    Registered users can update by selecting the “Check For Update” menu item.

    Friday, November 22nd, 2013
