Hi there everyone, the stable release of v1.12 is here - v1.12.0 aka “MOD Devices is dead, long live MOD Audio!”.
This release contains several fixes and the rework of many internal systems for improved stability.
The Duo X production units also get an update that syncs its features to be on pair with the Dwarf, apart from pedalboard/snapshot management.
Also, this release is mandatory for anyone wishing to buy plugins from the shop.
The list of new features was posted on the 1.12.0-RC1 announcement, but let’s go through them again.
Duo X goodies
This update makes the Duo X production units be in feature parity with the Dwarf, apart from the bank and snapshot management system.
See the v1.11.0-RC1 announcement for details on the new features added to the Dwarf.
So similar to the Dwarf, the Duo X now has:
- audio processing options (built-in noise gate, compressor and pedalboard gain accessible through the device menus)
- HMI Widgets support (device controller feedback for plugins)
- USB-B mode options (in device menus)
A lot of system changes were done internally to be able to support the new features,
which in turn improves the gain control handling.
Additionally, there is a new option in the advanced settings (cogwheel in the bottom-right corner in the web interface) for having SPDIF as separate outputs.
When enabled the pedalboard constructor will have 4 outputs to connect to, the first 2 being for regular analog output, and last 2 for SPDIF.
Updated kernel and system tweaks
There are a lot of system tweaks on this release, for improving stability and reliability.
If you previously had issues with Dwarf booting in an inconsistent state, they will very likely be fixed with this update.
Because the Duo and Dwarf are in sync in their kernel versions, the Duo gets a free update.
Nothing really changes for it, but it will make it easier for introducing any new features later on when all units are running the same versions.
The Duo X may get its matching kernel update in the future.
Such kernel updates are not totally risk-free, so we did not push it as regular bugfix on v1.11 and waited for a new major release instead.
We did a fair share of testing to ensure there were no regressions.
If you spot anything, please let us know.
Allow plugins to trigger device popups
Plugins are now able to trigger device popups with a custom title and text.
This will be handy for plugins to notify a user when something relevant happens.
Note: this feature (along with whole “HMI Widgets”) is not implemented on the Duo and Duo X limited edition units
There’s also quite a few more changes and tweaks.
Visit Releases#Release_1.12 to see all changes since v1.11.
The next time you open the MOD web interface you’ll receive an update notification.
Just click on the tooltip icon in the bottom-right when that happens, then ‘Download’ and finally ‘Upgrade Now’.
Wait for a few minutes while the MOD updates itself automatically.
We hope you’re enjoying your MOD device.
Let us know if you find any issues.
