Wow, I sure was wrong in my last post.
xi2bmk2 will rip through your dusty old .xi instrument collection, and convert it to a shiny new .bmk2 and .wav collection.
- xi2bmk2 will operate recursively on an input directory that you specify. The first folders that it encounters will become the category names in the .bmk2 file.
- You can use the .wavs for whatever you like, but the tuning information, key maps, and loop points are all stored in the .bmk2 xml.
- Since fast tracker‘s envelopes were so radical, they are not converted to the standard ADSR that beatmaker 2 uses.
- Stereo pair instruments (identified by two files, *L.xi and *R.xi, in the same folder, with matching keymaps and samples) will be magically welded back together into a single stereo instrument.
You can download it here.

It looks like I missed something in the Atlantis 0.9g release. The pan shaper was not included. So- here it is.
I got a tablet laptop recently, and I have to say, Atlantis is a treat with a stylus. And it even works in Vista. Goodbye mouse!

I have a signifigant Atlantis audio quality update for you today.
Hani didn’t like the clicking sound the routing engine was making in filters-per-voice mode. So, I fixed it. Now filters in filters-per-voice mode are always running, just like the global filter. You may notice a slightly different decay sound- this is the filter running. Before it would stop running when the envelope decayed, and any resonance would be cut (click) and continue on the next note (click).
This will consume more CPU power in polyphonic mode, so be sure to turn the number of voices down to the lowest useable level that you can get away with, or disable filters-per-voice mode entirely. You can adjust these settings in the config dialog.
I also optimized the monophonic and arpeggio modes, so they will recieve a performance upgrade in this release.

I’ve got a little Atlantis update for you. This version allows you to use MIDI learn to assign bend and velocity modulators. Now it’s even easier to go crazy.
I’ve also updated the Atlantis Manual pdf.

Guess what? I’ve got a new build of Atlantis. It’s got some new features, and maybe even some new bugs for you guys to find.
Here’s a list of what’s new:
- Repeatverb and Destroyverb shapers
- Browse button for Data Folder in config dialog
- Fixes for waveform save bugs in some hosts (Cubase 3.1.1, Phrazor)
- Manual updates
The Repeatverb and Destroyverb are nasty little reverberation algorithms that are based on something I wrote for Jim Redfern to use in one of those demo competitions where you make your program crazy small. Use them to add some wet depth and weirdness.
They do use a fair amount of CPU, so I suggest turning Filters-Per-Voice mode off in Atlantis if you are using it with the synthesizer. I also suggest sticking a lowpass filter behind them.
The Pan module is something that Yann suggested and is everything you would expect from a serious panning algorithm. It uses a sine-law, if you care.

Wow… Here is a new Atlantis update!
- data folder has a selectable home
- proper preset and bank support
- larger power buttons
A folder in My Documents\ called Atlantis\ will be created once you run the new version. You should probably move all the crap from your legacy c:\chips folder into it. You can change the location of this folder in the Config panel if you chose, even change it back to c:\chips if you are too lazy to move your stuff.

Not sure why I never mentioned this here before. Ages ago, I made the File Deleter v2 plugin for Winamp. I still get emails from excited users on a regular basis. Most requested feature: hotkeys. I have not worked on this in years, but it’s great to hear from people that enjoy it.

Holy shit! An Atlantis update!
I fixed a frustrating GUI bug where the GUI and internal values were out of sync while working on an experimental Atlantis module. The new module is not yet ready for public consumption, but I will let you have the fix.

I fucked up the delay when optimzing Atlantis 0.9c. That’s no good at all.
I’ve put together a new version that fixes that problem, and also makes some of the UI elements more visible.
Thanks to everyone that reported the problem, I appreciate the feedback.
