What's new in MuLab

Version 8.0:

Note: Although Finder indicates that this is version 8.0, the developer states that this is version 8.3.3.

  • Event mutes let you mute individual events.
  • Multi-Point Envelope module: New "Global Level" parameter lets you automate and modulate the overall output level of a (looped) envelope.
  • Windows 32 bit version: New "Convert REX Files" function that converts all REX files in a folder to standard WAV files which also include the REX slice markers.
  • Event Graph Editor: When tweaking velocity beams or drawing a curve line, now a tool tip pops up showing relevant details while dragging the beam/line.
  • VST Plug-In Manager: Extra category functions:
  • Add category to selected plug-ins
  • Remove category from selected plug-ins
  • Remove all categories from selected plug-ins
  • Finetuned positioning of tooltips.
  • "Help" sub-menu renamed to "Tools".
  • Default shortcuts to Project Open/Save/Save As were not ok.
  • Project Browser: When "What" = All Files and "Where" is a large file set (eg. root folder) and "Which" didn't contain a name filter then this could overload MuLab/MUX resulting in a hang or crash.
  • When auto-stretched sample events were clipped by the part's end, this was unintendedly taken into account by the auto-stretch.
  • (Un)Muting tracks did not immediately redraw the parts to reflect their muted state.
  • Previewing Multi-Samples and REX files from the Project Browser could cause a crash.
  • Windows: When using both MuLab 32 bit and MuLab 64 bit and sharing the same user folder, the already inserted user key was not recognized between both versions and needed to be reinserted.
  • Multi-Point Envelopes: When dragging a Loop Start/End point and then undoing and redoing that, this resulted in a bad envelope point.
  • Multi-Point Envelopes: When just drawing a new point without dragging and then undoing and redoing that, this resulted in a bad envelope point.

this is not free software. The application downloaded is a demo without a key ( of payment) does not allow or save documents. Therefore, it has no free feature other than that of allowing the program to be tested. What is good to know, and decide your payment or not. But it is not a free program. Nor have I seen on your website, if previous versions were free or not.That could be interesting for those of us who continue to use "old" machines according to the norm imposed by the Apple market.

It just works, after the initial learning curve.
Version 7.2

Not a lot of FREE programs that can host VST Instruments, eh? Well, this is one and does it better than I expected. It's not pretty, it's not easy, it's still pretty awesome though.
Version 3.0

5.3.25 is the current version, with a creation date of December 19, 2013. You'll find this version number listed in the 'What's New' list above. I think it is well past time MacUpdate ditched the '3.0' listing on this page. *Please* Note that this application is NOT compliant with Apple's user experience guidelines. It looks like a Linux application, although it is only available for Mac and Windows. Therefore, it takes a bit of getting used to with ALL the controls/menus being inside the application window. There is nothing available via the Mac's menubar, which only lists the application name. It can be used with or without a MIDI device attached. It has a huge selection of personalization features. For free, it's terrific! But be prepared to climb the learning curve.

Even though I currently use purchased sequencers such as Live and ProTools I think it's great that a company is offering even a limited version for free. My only request for the free version would be to add rewire even in a stereo form. Prior to owning my current software i looked around endlessly for a free app that can do what luna does + rewire.
