We've just released version 1.6.1 of Tapes.01 with some new, useful functions!

User Samples Time Stretch

You can now time-stretch user samples, which is really useful in poly, mono, and legato mode.

Synced Swarm Mode

This feature turned out even better than we initially thought. It's now possible to set swarm speed to note divisions instead of milliseconds, completely changing the character of swarm mode.

New LFO Shapes & Flicker Parameter

We've added four new nature-inspired shapes for the LFOs: walk, pulse, fin, and tide. There's also a new parameter available for each LFO shape - flicker. You can use it to destabilize its output; in some cases, it can even sound like distortion (eg. when assigned to filter's cutoff and / or source volume).

Assigning Macros to CC A or CC B Directly from the Interface

A simple but useful new addition allows you to quickly map each of the four macros to either CC A or CC B and save that mapping in snapshot for future use.

100 New Snapshots

We've created some snapshots so you can quickly check out the new functions. Plus, it's always nice to have new presets to dive into!

Here you can download the updated manual for Tapes.01.
