[ Fixed ] Saving TI bank as MIDI file is now recognized in the Access Virus TI Control Software.
[ Fixed ] Resolved issue where VirusHC would crash if Virus TI was booted with Virus TI USB connected to computer.

Version 1.5.11 / 2018-10-26

[ Fixed ] Resolved issue where 32-bit installers did not work as expected.
[ Other ] Changed “Send all MIDI data from Plug-in:” to “Directly to Hardware” by default, since some users with large buffer settings were not able to get notes triggered at all.

Version 1.5.10 / 2018-10-16

[ Fixed ] Resolved issue where TI multi parameters were not recalled properly.

Version 1.5.8 / 2018-09-18

[ New ] If part is set to Muted, it won’t be recalled to, or requested from hardware by the plug-in. This saves some time when recalling a project and when synchronizing data from hardware to plug-in UI. For example, 16 part total recall with Virus TI using 600ms request interval takes ~13 seconds to send the data to Virus, but if only parts 1-3 are enabled and 4-16 muted, it takes ~4 seconds. Time is money!
[ Fixed ] Resolved issue with Virus TI where delay parameters did not update the plug-in UI when changing patches.
[ Fixed ] Resolved issue where delay parameters were not recalled properly when opening a project.

Version 1.5.7 / 2018-09-18

[ Improvement ] Bank Drop Down menus are now sorted so that folders come up first and then Patches root files. Multilevel subfolders supported.
[ Improvement ] Master FX display notification moved to a different spot on the plug-in UI.
[ Improvement ] Adjusted Patch Request and Send timings. Use Request Interval dropdown menu to increase the request interval if you experience missing data on either way.

[ New ] Randomizer – You can now freely randomize any part you wish.
[ New ] Section Locks – Compine together with Randomizer and you can keep some of the best settings of the randomized or even the current preset. If section locks are toggle on, patches sent from librarian will have your parts locked in place.
[ New ] Better UI – We made some small adjustment to the user interface. We know there are a lot people asking for a bigger User interface, but at this time and due the last update issues, we were not able to ship it with this release.
[ New ] MIDI / SysEx state LEDs per part – Now you can see per part which part is receiving data.
[ New ] Librarian menu improvement – You can now toggle + or – to choose next or previous bank from the dropdown list, without having to open the menu.
[ New ] Librarian Bank Edit Menu – revised to keep multi data and single data requests on their segments. Multi bank menu actions can be seen when Single Patches / Multi Bank Files button is toggled.
[ New ] Limit bank view by categories – We made our own way to display all categories in the dropdown menu. Check it out!
[ Fixed ] Time-out issues should be resolved. In some cases, even though the cables and midi interface was ok, plug-in indicated that it was not able to make the connection.
[ Fixed ] Semitone should behave as expected when knob is moved from hardware.

Version 1.5.0 / 2017-11-04

[ Fixed ] Windows 64bit plug-in is not actually 64bit plug-in. NOTE: not backward compatible!

Version 1.4.13 / 2017-03-28

[ New ] Librarian now includes ‘Cancel’ button, to cancel current request of arrangement, single or multi patches from hardware.
[ New ] Finetuned plug-in framework to set request interval in 500ms with Pre-TI models and 1000ms for TI models. This is due to message size the hardware sends / receives.
[ New ] Virus TI Snow added to model list and this ensures that right amount of patch data is requested when arrangement is called and some UI elements are temporarely grayed out to prevent touching un-needed parts. These elements will be re-drawn for v2 release in future.
[ New ] Master Volume knob added for Rack and Rack XL users to the multimode mixer.
[ Fixed ] Save or Save As MIDI files are now compatible with Virus TI Control Software and sequencer applications capable of playing back MIDI files containing patches.

[ Fixed ] Plug-in UI did not update accordingly when changing Reverb Mode from the Virus TI.
[ Fixed ] Assignment destinations in Modulation slots 4/5/6 did not show number for the first slot.
[ Improvement ] Multimode Mixer Settings window has been changed so that you can choose MASTER part for multi delay/reverb (pre-ti users). If user sets part 1 as a master, patches changed at part 1 will also change the delay/reverb setting to multi/all patches accordingly. All other parts will indicate that part 1 is master and only effect send knob is available for adjustment. Master part can be changed at any time in multimode mixer settings page to hear if another parts fx is more suitable.
[ Improvement ] User manual has been re-written, finally!
[ Other ] v2.0.0 UI re-design has been started. New user interface size will be 1500px wide and 757px height.

Version 1.4.8 / 2016-12-01

[ New ] Librarian overlay has been revamped and simplified.
[ New ] If data was requested from hardware to librarian or to User Interface.
[ New ] Virus|HC logo has been updated along with company logo.

[ Fixed ] Plug-in now detects tempo change from host and syncs automatically to host sync if the option is enabled in Settings #2 tab. Default position is on.
[ Fixed ] In some cases, filter link was not activated in plug-in interface although it was activated on patch while loading from librarian.

Version 1.4.7 / 2016-05-16

[ New ] Patch menus are now displaying subfolders if there are patches in subfolders. In 32-bit systems, patch names are automatically shortened to 32 characters and in 64-bit systems, patch names are shortened to 52 characters. If name is longer, it won’t fit to the patch name display which caused crash.
[ New ] Patches can now be saved in either MIDI or System Exclusive format when clicking save as from librarian menu.
[ Fixed ] MIDI I/O State was not properly recalled after re-opening the project if the count of MIDI Devices was changed. Now MIDI Devices are recalled by the device name, rather than saved index number.

[ Fixed ] Digital Performer crashed up on clicking save as in librarian.

Version 1.4.5 / 2016-04-26

[ Fixed ] When project was recalled, some sysex messages were sent out with wrong DeviceID information leading to situation with no sound.
[ Fixed ] Resolved error with RingMod level knob on new TIOS platforms.
[ Other ] When data is sent to hardware, we force legacy Virus to MULTI mode in order to receive multi settings properly. This is why we HIGHLY recommend all users to use Virus in MULTI mode while working with the plugin. If MULTI SINGLE / SINGLE mode is used, none of the multimode mixer settings are received up on project recall or if ”force to device” button is pressed. So one more time: ALWAYS STICK IN THE MULTI MODE. You can change & scroll through patches in multi single mode, but must return to multi mode if you recall your project.

Version 1.4.4 / 2016-04-25

[ New ] Arrow keys now supported in Librarian window to scroll up, down, left & right in the patch window. This function does not work anywhere else but in the librarian window while the cursor is above the patch-names window.

[ Improvement ] SysEx data is now being sent & received with new intervals due to some reports of patch data not being collected properly to our librarian. In Virus TI, each patch request is processed after 1000ms and in legacy models the requestinterval is 800ms.
[ Other ] Other minor coding tweaks and cleanups.

Version 1.4.3 / 2016-02-27

[ Fixed ] Plugin sends wrong tempo information up on project recall.
