What is new in the latest VSTSynthFont [3] version?

VSTSynthFont [3] is a complete rewrite of the older VSTSynthFont which is no longer supported. VSTSynthFont [3] has been extensively tested to make sure it is 100% compatible with common sequencer hosts like the Cubase range of products from Steinberg.

NOTE 1: VSTSynthFont [3] is not freeware. You can try it for 15 days and then purchase a license for 15. This license also covers SynthFont2, so you get 2 for 1! Go here to purchase a license by donating to help us continue developing this tool.

NOTE 2: The name of the plugin is still VSTSynthFont or VSTSynthFont64 so that old projects can be used without any changes.

What is new in version 3.200 of VSTSynthFont / VSTSynthFont64?

- Some bug fixes

New features:

- The Inbuilt Reverb effect has been improved and made faster. Previously the same Reverb settings were applied to all separate instances of the plugin within a project. Now you can have separate settings for each instance. (You can identify the instance number at the top, right)

- There has been no way to select multiple tracks for editing. This version has a new column at the far right with checkboxes. Here you can check the tracks you want to handle simultaneously. Additionally at the top there is a new button, "SEL". Press to select/unselect all tracks. See image at the bottom.

- The 64 bit version has now a different "unique VST identification code" than the 32 bit version. Some hosts (like Cakewalk from BandLab) cannot handle two plugins with the same ID. If your host cannot find the 64 bit version you may need to rescan.

- Generally optimized and faster 64 bit version than before.
