Ohm Studio's blog

Rev. 71120 released
7 November 2012
  • Improvement : OhmStudioGuest now transmits keyboard shortcuts to the main Ohm Studio process. Consequently, keyboard shortcuts work even when you open a plugin’s GUI.

 

  • Improvement: It is now possible to cut or reduce the size of an Audio Pattern containing fade-in/out even when the length of the fade exceeds that of the new targeted smaller-sized Pattern.

 

  • Improvement: Windows users can drag’n’drop audio or MIDI files from a VST plugin’s GUI - provided such feature is available - onto an Audio/MIDI Track in Ohm Studio. Mac users were already able to do this.

 

  • Fix: an empty Rack with freeze enabled now plays the freezed sound only instead of both freezed sound and the sound heard at its 1st input pin. Such case can happen at the end of a chain when the last Rack has only a Volume Plugin left.

 

  • Fix: If you crop the beginning of a MIDI Pattern, its Automation Points will not only follow the shift visually but also "audibly" during playback.

 

  • Fix: If you move an Audio Pattern the volume of which has been modified via the Inspector onto a Track of another Audio Track Plugin, its volume is no longer set to its initial level again.

 

  • Fix: Changing Audio- or Record Preferences during Record no longer causes Audio Engine to crash.

 

  • Fix: Contrast- and brightness values now apply automatically on startup.

 

  • Fix: You can now access elements on the farthest left of the Gear Panel with the mouse when the Chat Panel is hidden.

 

  • Fix: If Chat Panel is hidden, clicking somewhere on the Bottom Bar no longer brings it back.

 

  • Fix: You can now create a Pattern, copy it, do undo, and paste it successfully, instead of crash.

 

  • Fix: In some rare cases, a Sample's waveform would not match the sound it produced.

 

  • Fix: You can now successfully save and load presets in Oddity and Minimonsta.

 

  • Fix: On Windows, the Alt Gr key is no longer ignored.

 

  • Fix: You can now edit a note's velocity with the Pen tool in the Velocity lane, even when another element elsewhere is already selected.

 

  • Fix: Deleting one of Ohm Studio's built-in Plugin from a Rack while its GUI is still open no longer causes a Crash.

75 BPM
2 November 2012

"I made up my mind a long time ago... ain't no reason not to take it slow". And that's we'll do this friday: collaborative project as always & back again to the good old BPM rule, this time stucked at 75, no more, no less. And let's add that the track shall be at least 60 bars long!

 

If you don't know what those collabs are or why they're so cool you'll be mad to miss them, check out that vid:

 


So, how to be a part of it?


Install Ohm Studio if not done yet, set up audio, MIDI & VST path at your convenience, check the basics, then connect this Friday between 6 and at least 12 PM GMT (we'll try to get further with some help). This is the hour to be at the start of a project but you can complete on the project as long as you want. Find "Red_Force" (or if I am not here, Jamie57lp, assuming he recovered from that Sandy girl) in the chat list and send me/him this code phrase "Barry White For The Win" (or scream it on the channel for maximum fun). Despite possible latency, we will quickly introduce you to a new project with other people who will all share your passion for making a better world through commercials.

 

If you can't be there, don't hesitate to prepare something in a project and invite me in (as owner, please), I'll clone it as a basis for at least one session.

 

Songs from the latest event (and their heirs) can be heard using the search box top right "Halloween") . 

 

See you on Friday at Cinderella's Ballroom !

Release date delayed...
24 October 2012

... win 6-month subscription on Friday Collabs until then!

After 6 months of Open Beta Ohm Studio is planned for release in January. While originally targeted for mid-October, development schedule has been lately redesigned to include a few must-have additions. Added to the long list of late improvements and stability fixes it has enjoyed over the last few months, it is fair to say that this open beta will have drastically improved Ohm Studio's stability and features.

 

To apologize for the delay Ohm Force is extending the availability of the Lifetime Offer. Currently priced at €166.00 excl. tax it will ramp up at €187.00 excl. tax from Monday October 29th until release. It will then be removed. Regardless of it beta users will keep all their projects and will still be able to use the service under the freemium account, yet with some limitations.

 

And to cheer up until then, Ohm Studio’s weekly Collab Fridays events will now see one of the participant per event rewarded with a 6-month subscription. This reward will be offered each time upon merit according to Red_Force, whether it is great skill, good mood or wearing a funny hat.

 

 

Week after week those events produced excellent tracks and cheerful experiences and Ohm Force has decided that they are here to stay. As a result, here is a video to grasp in 2 minutes what they are really about:

 

 

Next event takes place this very Friday, from 6 to 12 GMT (and probably later). Theme will be "Make a music to scare the kids on Halloween". Just PM Red_Force or Jamie57lp in the chatroom with the code phrase "Treat or Tricks".

Mad Musicians: Tata
18 October 2012

Do you know Mad men? It's a TV Show where people from an advertising agency design commercials to sell the new products of their time. Mad Musicians theme will be about role playing the musicians for an ad agency making the soundtrack for a TV Spot of a specific, yet to come product. This Friday, the product will be the Tata car. Do you know Tata Air?

http://jalopnik.com/tata-nano-compressed-air-engine/

It's the future! Maybe! Everyone should have one. Actually, no. Everyone should have several of them!

 

Up to you to choose the mood, to put lyrics, or a speech, or a barking dog on it. You can also smoke like a mad man, like in a TV Show, but Ohm Force is taking no responsibility (hey, what would you expect?). Lastly, it shall be no less than 1 min and no more than 2!

 

So, how to be a part of it?

 

Install Ohm Studio if not done yet, set up audio, MIDI & VST path at your convenience, check the basics, then connect this Friday between 6 and at least 12 PM GMT (we'll try to get further with some help). This is the hour to be at the start of a project but you can complete on the project as long as you want. Find "Red_Force" (or if I am not here, Jamie57lp) in the chat list and send me/him this code phrase "I am full of air!" (or scream it on the channel for maximum fun). Despite possible latency, we will quickly introduce you to a new project with other people who will all share your passion for making a better world through commercials.

 

If you can't be there, don't hesitate to prepare something in a project and invite me in (as owner, please), I'll clone it as a basis for at least one session.

 

Songs from the latest event (and their heirs) can be heard using the search box top right "Get Better") . A timelapse of a collab can be watched here, or, if you're really intrigued, there's always this longer video

 

See you on Friday at the brainstorming!
