Changes in v.2.4.58

This release contains a specialized de-esser version of the Weiss DS1-MK3, the Weiss Deess, with modern graphics and easy to use interface. And you been asking for this for years, so here it is! We've created mark II versions of the full Tube-Tech line, with additional features such as M/S processing in Classic Channel. The last addition is Tube Delay for Modular. On top of that we've fixed a bunch of issues, added retina for a couple of products, and added a support for the UAD Distressor in Console 1. Note: Weiss Deess is at version 2.4.59, all other plug-ins are at 2.4.58.

Known Issues

  • When using Pro Tools on Windows the Preset Collection window often gets hidden behind the Pro Tools window. Can be recovered with Alt-Tab, pressing twice on the "Preset", button, etc .
  • In Pro Tools user created presets are erroneously marked as modified when loaded in Preset Collection.
  • Console 1 Pro Tools Error -9105 when using UAD plug-ins. Fixed in Pro Tools 2018.1. We are still working on a fix for older versions of Pro Tools.
  • We are working on usability features for Preset Collection, such as a list view and other helpful features. Please let us know what you'd like to have!
  • Preset Collection blocks some keyboard events from getting to the DAW, like space for start/stop. We're investigating how we could fix this.
  • Weiss DS1-MK3 and Weiss MM-1 projects in Wavelab are rendered with a fade-in. We will try to fix this issue as soon as possible.
  • Weiss Deess: Plug-in delay compensation does not work as intended in Studio One and Logic.
