More optimized memory writing assembly routines. Fixed user interface bug in case of higher than normal(96) windows DPI setting. Fixed bug that enabled activating MOVNTQ memory writes without checking SSE/MMX+ support (only 32bit version affected, x64 capable CPUs all support at least SSE2).
Bassmidi VSTi is a portable VST 2.4 instrument/software MIDI synthesizer for Windows that is based on the Bass/BassMidi libraries by Un4Seen.You need some SF2/SFZ soundfont(s) and a VST Host/DAW to use it. In the package both x86 and x64 versions are included for different x86/x64 hosts. Using x86/x64 host bridges are not recommended. Bass.dll and Bassmidi.dll have to be copied to the same (VST) directory as BassMidiVsti.dll. Copying BassMidiVsti.vstxml is optional. It's only included for easier parameter customization.
Things that are useful and will work with the U220 include: Send SX - a small SYSX program from Bome SendSX_1.4.198.exe (Nov 2014) Send SX works with Windows XP and higher, to send / retrieve SYSEX data from any MIDI device. Works fine with the Roland U20/U220. And I also use and highly recommend BOME MIDI Translator. Though this is NOT librarian software. Commercial MIDI Librarian Software Some current commercial MIDI librarian software that supports the U20/U220 (e.g. Midi Quest from Sound Quest) may cost up to or more than twice as much as a preloved Roland U220 (depending on the Midi Quest program version purchased - the Pro version set me back AUD $635 inc. GST - a real headspinner. Fortunately I now also have other uses for that software). That is definitely worth keeping in mind, before you rush out and buy one of these old Roland U series dinosaurs. Game Over I was investigating the possibility of writing my own librarian software ... however ... It's not like there is a huge demand and I already have no shortage of ongoing projects ;-) Then I noticed that the last of my two U220s was sometimes no longer saving the edits I was making to patches - which essentially turns it into another 19" rackmount paperweight. So that's it for the U220 saga for me, I will be replacing them with something a decade or two newer. Just FYI - I ended up getting the 2 RU Roland Integra7 and the 1 RU Roland XV-5050 to see which is better suited to my rig and MIDI control. Still not sure which one will be cut. I have a Korg Kronos LS88 now, for when I need a real synth - it will eat pretty much anything Roland for breakfast and then ask where the desert is - admittedly though, I am still having trouble trying to train the LS88 to make me a cuppa first thing in the morning. But then, I also failed miserably trying to get my two cats to do that, hopeless little shits.
The stream of notes and commands routed by VMPK may drive the built-in "Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth", but the soundbanks are not too cool. We suggest that you download and use this CoolSoft Virtual MIDI Synth that supports soundfonts and also sounds great. 2b1af7f3a8
