[ANN] ZynAddSubFX 3.0.5 - “The Butterfly Effect” Release

ZynAddSubFX 3.0.5 - “The Butterfly Effect” Release
15 April 2019

The Zyn team is excited to announce the first of our regular quarterly releases. Our usual inclination is to try to get all the bugs fixed and do a release, but using a scheduled release model will force us to deliver the fixes that are ready sooner rather than waiting for some unrelated feature or fix. Of course this doesn’t prevent us from releasing in between the scheduled releases, but this gives you something to look forward to four times a year.

Despite being “just” a scheduled release there are some great improvements here for our favorite synth, including making LFOs and volumes work with real-world units (like Hz, seconds, decibels) allowing for laser-beam accuracy in your sound design. Of course, you can always still tune it by ear too!

Here’s the full changelog:
- Add Stereo peaks for individual part metering
- Change LFO frequency units to Hz (from unitless)
- Enhance LFO delay parameter resolution and units (seconds)
- Enhance global volume parameter resolution and units (dB)
- Enhance part volume parameter resolution and units (dB)
- Enhance sub synth volume parameter resolution and units (dB)
- Enhance sub synth volume velocity sensing resolution
- Fix zippering when changing master volume
- Fix misaligned points in live envelope values
- Fix possible crash when envelopes are provided invalid live data
- Fix minor bugs

And here’s the contribution score card by number of commits since 3.0.4: (576f1371b4)
34 Daniel Sheeler
4 michiboo
3 Olivier Humbert
2 fundamental
1 withoutwaxaryan
1 Andreas Müller
1 Patrick Desaulniers
1 Micky


We hope you enjoy this and all our subsequent scheduled releases. It can be found in all the usual places (see below).

Now go make some noise!

Has zyn-fusion been merged into the main project yet? I know the GUI has been open sourced for over a year now. Also, I noticed there is a multi-out variant (standalone), will you have an LV2/VST variant that can be built by source with multi-out at some point like Yoshimi?

We'll put some effort into bringing the zyn specific parts of the UI into the main repository at some point. The toolkit written for it though (mruby-zest) will remain an independent project as its not specifically for zyn. Its just a dependency like fftw (and we aren't going to merge that in anytime soon). :)

We don't plan to make a multi-out plugin. The much more common workflow is to use one instance of the synth for each voice in separate tracks in your DAW. For my own benefit, do you mind describing a little how the multi-out in a plugin would help your particular workflow?

I know in ardour if I use 16 instances of Yoshimi as an LV2 it uses 3x the memory as one instance with multi out. Also, those 16 instances will make Ardour's DSP soar to an astonishing 55% when using a buffer of 256 and Yoshimi's multi-out LV2 only uses 20% DSP with all 16 channels going crazy. At least if making a multi-out plugin is not an option can there be a way to run the standalone multi-out zynaddsubfx with different buffer sizes than just 256. I think I'll try carla's export feature to create a multi-out LV2 variant. Thanks

The restriction for the standalone multi-out is that the jack framesize is identical to zyn's buffersize. As long as you're willing to change what jack's framesize is then zyn's would shift as well. (note that this restriction is not present in non-multi modes).
