Mela 4.8 Update — Easier Modulation Editing, Many Internal Improvements

The Mela 4.8 update mostly focused on improving the internals of the app as well as added workarounds for some UI performance issues caused by hosts such as Logic Pro for Mac/iPad. Many changes have been made to the program code to future-proof Mela and make it easier to build new features on top. Of course, future versions will continue to improve the internals and there will be more optimisation work alongside new features. Note that this version dropped support for iOS 16 and macOS 13 to maximally optimise Mela for iOS 17 and macOS 14.

It’s now possible to view and edit a parameter’s modulator sources and their modulation intensities from a single view. Simply tap its title/value area and select Edit Modulation from the pop-up menu. Additionally, the modulator modules now have a draggle target icon. Simply hold it for a split second and then drag and drop it onto a parameter’s title/value area. The Edit Modulation popover will appear with the modulator added as one of the sources.

Check out the Changelog for the full details about this Mela update.
