Oh, I should explain what "Event accumulator threshold is now included in calculation when Event is used as source for Step repeats." means.

Previously if you used an Event as the source for the Step repeats, the Step would see that the Event needed x number of repeats to complete but it didn't take into account that if the Event had an accumulator setting of 2 for example, it would actually need twice as many repeats. That's fixed now but if you manually compensated for it by adjusting the repeat multiplier you'll need to change it to maintain the correct repeat structure. I hope that makes sense! :lol:

Thank you, great update, new random options :dance:
I stopped using buzz for about 4 months, its time to start new things now, with Magic of course.
It would be cool to create a collective book, every one could purpose a single pattern or a complex thing in one page, a global state, Magic is a modular pattern editor perfect to illustrate Buzz power.

+ Fixed 'o' in chord name being seen as note-off
+ Fixed octave number display for note values in Peer value fields
+ Machine version 1.15a, file version 12
Well of course, the moment I sit down and actually try to use it for something I stumble across not one but two bugs. :oops:

I found that if a chord name had an 'o' in it, the code would think it was a note-off and not see the note or chord. ("Chord" is the wrong term really, it should be something like "Interval Set" but that's too long.)

Also if you put something like 'c5 in as a peer value, the 5 would get trashed and you'd get a weird little box thing instead. Computers are fun.

Let's hope there aren't too many more. :roll:

Wow, after some playing today i wanted to ask for some sort retriggering features as tick/100, subtick or something, you rock!

I have had a couple of crashes, maybe because i renamed machine to "IX Magic_2.dll" for testing (or renamed it after crashes - dont remember). I think it is working good as long as you dont open 2 different instances in one session. I will try to reproduce it, but for now i want to report strange behave. Buzz freezes for a moment when you changing events when transport is playing, it is not related to the 1.14 version.

I can't wait to play around with v.1.15a :dance:

Thanks for this New Years present IX!

This will come in handy as I start to prep for FAWM 2021 (February Album Writing Month) 8-)

See You In The Shadows…

Thanks for reporting. If you can reproduce it that would be very helpful.

I haven't noticed anything like that when I've been using it here. Can you make a bmx to reproduce it?

I see this now. The dialog refresh appears to be blocking the audio thread momentarily. I'll see if I can figure out why.

@rav It should be better now. Let me know how it performs.

I've found at least one crash when there are two instances. I know where it's crashing but there's something going on that I don't understand. :roll:

For now I'd advise again using multiple instances. I hope to find a solution soon.

Update bump!

I've fixed the multiple instance problem that I found and put some safeguards in place in a few places where I think a crash might happen. Hopefully there aren't any others but let me know if you find anything. :)

:o I have zero instance, Magic is crashed directly when I load it (buzz32). In Buzz64, I have a message "can't find the dll".
But if I load a bmx, it works, very strange. I can't verify if 2 instances is ok.
Anyway thank you for the update, I suppose its nothing serious. When I see all the errors I made in a simple list for Wde GuitarChord, I imagine the disaster if i was a dev :lol:
