Hurray for controlled feedback! Works nicely with the Loop module.
I came across what might be considered a bug, explained here.

The feature list looks more like v2.0 update, wow!
It's sad that Maemo support is dropped but it's understandable.

Now hurry to testing! Thanks!

Thank you so, so very much. MIDI for controls? Phenomenal. This was number one on my wish list and you came through perfectly.


I will go through this new version and look for bugs to report.

OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to put in to this update the IMPORTING OF LOOP POINTS in the sampler!!!!! You have no idea what that is for me!!!! My girlfriend doesn't know what a tracker even is except for that "thing that goes up and down", but she's going to buy one for android!!! Haha I will buy this tracker as many times as I can, it's the closest thing to the perfect tracker as I can imagine. My audio editor is going to be getting a workout now, and perfect timing... I just set up my synth and BOSS digital recorder, yes I am still going old school until I can find a USB audio interface with a low enough noise signal that I can afford.

Thanks again, this is the best news.

Spend the night with 1.9 and it's EPIC! MIDI learn is so well implemented (love the value curve response setting ... i.e. for filter control they are essential).

One requirement though. Would it be possible to assign MIDI CC by typing a CC# from a PC keyboard? User could i.e. right click the field 'Waiting for MIDI evt' to switch it to keyboard entry.
Right now there is no way to assign Aftertouch MIDI CC from keys because the Note# is registered first. Workaround is to map AT to a fader/knob on a controller and THEN MIDI learn in SunVox but direct CC# editing would be sweeter. Thanks!

I really like how you added sample and hold/random to the filter LFOs.

Can we have that in the general LFO module as well, please?

+1 for this. My keyboard sends multiple types of CCs at once, so manually assignable would be quite helpful.

Are languages done using .po format? If so, I could make Polish translation if I have the time.

This is great to see - custom Midi controls is great! Being able to map them to pitch note would be great - currently, there's no way to do a pitch bend live. Anyway, it's great to see all of these options!
