What's new in MuLab

Version 8.6:
  • Streaming audio files with a different samplerate than the current samplerate and with a data format different from 16 bit integer or 32 bit float did not properly work. Fixed.
  • When consolidating an audio sequence part, the audio lane mute/solo didn't work anymore. Fixed.
  • Zooming into an audio stream part could sometimes result in an incorrect empty waveform. Fixed.
  • When using many shortcuts some menus could popup slower. Fixed.
  • Sample displays: With very short samples (below 1000 samples) the Start/Loop/End sliders didn't work as expected. Fixed.
  • Sample Section Player -> Set Interpolation Mode did not work via a shortcut. Fixed.
  • The "Drag Parameter" function did not work via a shortcut. Fixed.
  • Monitoring keys of a multi-sample did not use the "Preview Monitor" rack if one exists. Fixed.
  • Mapping a meta-parameter to a module inside the Modular Feedback Delay could cause incorrect behavior. Fixed.
  • Live MIDI input: When note on and note off events arrive at the exact same time it could be that their order was switched. Fixed.
  • Sometimes monitoring audio was routed directly to audio out instead of Preview Monitor rack. Fixed.
  • In some cases the full zoom out (aka Overview) editor functions were not working correct from the first time, they needed a double trigger. Fixed.
  • New shortcut options for scrolling and zooming editors.
  • Other mini improvements.
  • Event Graph Editor now also supports editing Poly Pressure. Besides selecting Poly Pressure from the selector menu, there are 3 new shortcut functions:
  • Edit All Velocities = Switches the graph lane to show all velocities.
  • Edit Focused Key Velocities = Switches the graph lane to show the velocities of the currently selected key. (eg. handy for drum sequences)
  • Edit Focused Key Poly Pressure = Switches the graph lane to show poly pressure of the currently selected key.

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.

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.

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.
