Synthesizer V Studio 1.7.1b1 Update: Voice Version Selection and Bug Fixes

Version 1.7.1b1 of Synthesizer V Studio introduces a voice version selector that allows working with multiple installed versions of the same voice database. This new feature is accompanied by numerous bug fixes and improvements to the overall stability of the software.

 

 

Voice Version Selection

 

Synthesizer V Studio now allows multiple versions of the same voice database to be installed. Users may manage the installed versions in the lower part of the License and Updates panel. Voice database version may be specified for each track/group through the version selector in the Voice Panel. The version selection feature also comes with the following behavior changes:

 

Projects created with Synthesizer V Studio 1.7.1 and onward will keep record of the voice version.

Projects created before Synthesizer V Studio 1.7.1 default to using the latest installed version of the voice databases.

When updating or installing a new version of the voice, the older version is kept.

In the License and Updates panel, “Deactivate” and “Deactivate and Uninstall” apply to all versions of the voice database. However, any version except the latest version can be uninstalled without affecting the other versions using the newly added “Installed versions” list.

 

Telemetry

Dreamtonics is hoping to discover aspects of Synthesizer V Studio that can be made better. One way towards better understanding this is collecting usage information (“Telemetry”) from within the software. The data that Synthesizer V Studio collects contains mostly statistics of feature coverage, crashes and the operation environment. It does not contain any personal information, including the identity of the user, nor any Synthesizer V project data. Furthermore, you may enable or disable data collection at any time.

 

Beta Release

1.7.1b1 is a beta version. Beta releases of Synthesizer V Studio are offered before the final release for early preview of new features. Before installing and using a beta version, please understand that

The beta version is still a work in progress.

The beta version may not function properly as described.

Unexpected behaviors may happen while using the beta version.

 

How to get the beta version

Instead of utilizing “License and Updates” inside Synthesizer V Studio, you need to manually download and install this beta version from the following links.

Please note that the beta version will overwrite existing versions of Synthesizer V Studio. You may revert this by re-installing the original version. You may install the final release of Synthesizer V Studio from the License and Updates panel when it becomes available.
