KV331 Audio recently announced the latest v2.9.12 update for their SynthMaster 2 and SynthMaster 2 Player software synthesizers.
[Just run SythnMaster 2/Player for update prompt.]
This update brings 2 major new features:
Compatibility with Native Instruments' Native Kontrol Standard (NKS): NKS allows SynthMaster 2 and SynthMaster Player to be seamlessly integrated with Native Instruments' Maschine and Komplete Kontrol hardware and software.
Compatibility with VST3 format: VST3 has been a long-standing feature request from SynthMaster 2 users, and KV331 Audio finally managed to deliver it. SynthMaster 2 and SynthMaster 2 Player can now run in VST3 format as well, on Windows (64-bit Intel) and MacOS (64-bit Intel or Apple Silicon) platforms. For SynthMaster One users, an update is on the way in the coming weeks.
Aside from those 2 major features, there are critical bug fixes/improvements in this release as well:
New: Added Auto Assign/Remove easy parameters feature.
New: Modulation matrix entries can now grow as necessary (previous limit was 64 entries).
New: When a preset is loaded via MIDI Program Change, preset browser filter is now updated.
New: Preset banks are now stored under Public Documents folder instead of user's Documents folder.
New: Free version of SynthMaster Player now comes with 600 factory presets.
