Some things that have to be improved in this build:

This msgbox appears twice when i try to start the build:

It does not occur if i rename the tuning folder.

The VST window is too small if the VST has no GUI:

Good to see that things are moving forward. Very positive. I have not encountererd Jojo's problem, but I've only started it so far and have not tested it much.

2 Jojo

The messagebox is due to unrecognised tuning files. You can for example copy the tuning folder from release package of .48, or if don't use the tuning things, simply renaming/deleting the tuning folder might fix it without any additional problems.

The second problems seems to be direct consequence of the 'vst preset navigation improvement'-thing; to be fixed.

I can't recall changing any tuning settings (i don't use them), so they should be the original .48 ones... I'll try downloading the old files.

The VST window is too small if the VST has no GUI:

it also happens with VSt that have GUI.
Besides I experienced several VSTi crashes with some specific functions, ompt closes itself without a message... see ya in the bug report sections!

But I'm glad the development is still active, thanks you guys! the filter in vst load menu is rather interesting...

Can you confirm this? I've tested this with more than one machine with .48 files and it has worked fine. My guess would be that the files are from the 'RC3'-build.

I looked all VSTs I have, and couldn't notice one VST with GUI in which the window was too small.

'Specific functions'? Does the crashes crashes occur only in this build?


Anyway, thanks for the reports - pity there's is so much to report about.

Confirmed.
ModPlug is now able to start again with the original .48 files. ;)

Interesting. Is there some specific aspect where the performance seems improved?

For eager testers, there is new build(1.17.02.50) available in SVN repository. List of changes is below. The long list doesn't mean massive new features, I'm just being detailed here :)

NOTE: A major bug has been found in .50 (bug report).

[New] Ability to control plug params with MIDI controllers
      -Very basic model with limited and annoying GUI and usability.
      -For the time being, only for 'live'-controlling; no ability to insert pattern commands with it.
      -No pitch bender mapping

[New] Ability to pass MIDI to plugin.
      -Enable from setup->midi

[Imp] Ability to take MIDI volume into account when playing notes with MIDI keyboard.
      -Enabled from setup->midi

[New] Ability to start/continue/stop play with certain MIDI messages (0xFA, 0xFB, 0xFC)
      -Untested. If you can test this, results would be appreciated.
      -If this works, it should work only in pattern tab.

[Fix/Imp] Fix for volume command behavior for plugins; in addition now there are options how to interpret it.
      -Note: By default, the old buggy behavior is emulated for existing files - emulation can be disable from song properties.
      -In effect: VST volume control may now be possible simply with the familiar volume commands without any macros.
      Note, though, a significant difference in volume handling: plug volume is plug specific, not channel specific. So for example in
      
      |C-501......|D-501......
      |.....v64...|...........
      |.....v32...|...........
      |.....v00...|...........
      If instrument 01 has VSTi plug, the volume fade affects the VSTi volume thus affecting both channels, while when using ordinary samples, only the note in the first channel fades out.

[Imp] Keyshortcut for preset navigation jumps in VST editor.

[Mod] .bak files won't be shown anymore in load dialog with 'All modules' filter.

[Mod] MPTm files saved with this version should open as IT-files in previous versions

[Fix/Mod] Instrument random variation fix/behavior change.
      -Note: By default, old behavior is used for existing files. New behavior can be enabled from song properties.

[Fix] Fix for pattern duplicate for small patterns
      
[Fix] Fix for ini-settings related crash.
   
[Fix] Show row playtime didn't on certain cases work on first pattern row.

[Fix] Fix for faulty play on "noteless notes" in IT compatible playmode

[Fix] Pattern number box didn't open pattern properties when using MPTm.

[Fix] Fixed wrong MIDI CC names in macro editor.

[Fix] Possible crash when loading/saving MPTm with more than 64 channels.

And various other changes/fixes. Please note that this is a development build not thoroughly tested.

Got it.
I don't use VST or MIDI, so I can't be a help of any testing there, so I concentrated first on playback.

I think BSV got a point. It's vague of course, but I got the impression, that somehow the sound-quality
has improved. In the fields of dynamics and clarity. More 'body' one could say.
I only have one beta running, so can't compare with the previous ones. But I can with the regular RC2 one,
and the ole MPPlayer.

I did this testing with a track of Louigi Verona : "At ModPlug Central", an IT file to be found at
http://forum.openmpt.org/index.php?topic=911.0

Maybe it's a good idea for a beta-testing, that, next to specific personal issues and use,
there are some 'standard' files, in consensus, to be used in some areas of the performance testing process.
I vote for this one.
