Mela 3.3 Update — Chord and Scale Modules Added
Mela now comes with 7 MIDI modules. By chaining them creatively, you can generate interesting chord progressions quickly. The new Chord module lets you convert each input note into a chord consisting of up to 6 notes. While the Scale module ensures that its output notes are in a given scale. There are other small enhancements also, like a triple tap on a dial or slider will display the text input field to let you enter exact parameter values and the controls linked to list parameters will now only trigger a value change on release.
Mela 3.3 Changelog
- The Chord module converts each input note into a chord consisting of up to 6 notes.
- Each row of parameter controls defines how the input note is transformed into one of the chord notes.
- The chord note parameters control transposition and velocity.
- The Scale module ensures that its output notes are in a given scale.
- The scale is defined by enabled pitches using the corresponding toggle buttons.
- In Filter mode, disabled notes are filtered out. In Nearest modes, disabled notes are transposed up or down to the nearest enabled notes.
- The Settings view has been slightly tweaked.
- The Forum button has been replaced with the Submit Feedback one. Tapping on it opens the new feedback site. Use it to submit bug reports, make feature requests or vote on issues.
- You can still email me directly, just tap on the Email Nikolozi button.
- Release Notes has been renamed to Changelog and is linked to the new page.
- Dials and sliders that control list parameters will now only trigger a value change on release. For example, while adjusting the Arpeggiator’s Mode parameter, the sound will not be affected until the control is released.
- You can now triple tap or triple click on dials and sliders to enter values of the parameters using a typing keyboard or the Apple Pencil.
- Fixed an issue where the Perform View dials would stop controlling the assigned parameters after the MIDI module chain was changed.
- The toggle buttons now correctly send the touch automation events to the host on touch or mouse down.
- Reduced voice shutdown time from 20ms to 2ms. This means that note-on events will feel more responsive when the note has to steal the synth’s voice from another.
- Added new presets to the Mela MIDI plug-in showcasing the new modules.
- Updated the User Guide.
