What is new in the latest Viena version?

Version 0.994:
Bug fixes:
- Playing on the virtual keyboard might cause an exception to occur
- Other minor reported bugs removed.
Version 0.993:
Bug fixes:
- The function "Purge unused items" might randomly cause the references to samples (within Instrument splits) or Instruments (within Preset layers) to get scrambled.
- Fixed the "Replace samples" function (in "More functions...". Use this to create a new Instrument based on a copy of another Instrument.)
- Also fixed some other bugs.

Improved features:
- Introduced a new dialog box for selecting presets in SoundFonts to be imported (menu item "File | Import SoundFonts"). By default the first preset will always be checked. So in a case of XX SoundFonts you do no need to go through all of them one by one to check the first (and single) preset.
- Samples in a SoundFont file are always monophonic. Stereophonic samples will hence always be split into two samples. There is a parameter within each sample record that tells which kind of sample this is: mono, left or right. In case of left or right, there is also a link to the pair. Viena has always tried to keep these links up to date, but there are many SoundFonts in which this link is broken. Viena offers a function called "Check and fix L-R links" (menu "Edit"). Select this to show a dialog box (see below). Additionally, in the Sample editor there is a new option to let Viena always check and fix the link for the selected sample.

Other issues:
- Viena no longer supports integration into SynthFont2 through a Windows Dynamic Link Library (DLL). A new version of SynthFont2 with inbuilt Viena will be released soon.

Version 0.992:
Bug fixes:
- Viena did not work so well with an external (hardware) keyboard
- The regular set of bugs.
Version 0.991:
Bug fixes:
- The two generators "fineTune" (pitch adjustment) and "sampleMode" (sample loop mode) were not used if defined in the Global split only.
Version 0.990:
Improved feature:
- Viena has now a much improved support for SoundFont Modulators.
- Viena can now monitor a MIDI input port for data and start the synth engine as soon as a meaningful event occurs. You can switch this feature on/off in Setup,
- Small addition: there is a function in the Splits editor to duplicate a split within an instrument - "More functions...", menu item "Copy/Paste split".

Bug fixes:
- Since version 0.97X Viena has had problems with saving a SoundFont more than once.
- A rather large number of bugs fixed. For example, working with several SoundFonts open at the same time there was a risk that the instruments were mixed between SoundFonts in a random manner.
