DCO-106 1.0.18/Build 40 Released: Improved chorus, CPU, more!

Post by Cherry Dan » Tue Oct 20, 2020 12:20 am

All,

Today we've released an update to DCO-106, version 1.0.18 Build 40, which includes a number of improvements, both major and minor. We've improved the DCO-106's chorus effect by studying the original hardware in great detail and adjusting our chorus effect to better match its characteristics. In addition, we've made improvements to overall CPU usage, and fixed a number of small issues (listed below) that have have been reported to us and that we've discovered in our testing.

DCO-106 will update automatically the next time you run it (unless you've turned off auto-updating in the preferences), or you can update immediately by visiting the DCO-106 Download page.

Thanks for helping make DCO-106 a major success!

- Dan @ Cherry Audio

1.0.18 changes:
  • Plug-in now remembers last-used scaling
  • Plug-in now remembers last-used MIDI mappings. This can be disabled in the preferences
  • Fixed Pro Tools & Logic crash with mono tracks
  • Reverb & delay are flushed when the plug-in is reset, and synced LFO & Arpeggiator are reset
  • Only auto-launching installer updates (if preference is set) if interface has been shown
  • Fixed preset code to better handle presets names with illegal file characters (such as /?*)
  • Fixed channel pressure MIDI mapping
  • Fixed bug that could show duplicate preset collections with same name
  • Fixed rare automation bug during mix down
Build 40 changes:
  • Improved chorus effect in multiple small ways to match the original Juno chorus, including not disrupting lower frequencies
  • Fixed manual entering of Arpeggiator rate slider value
  • Square wave LFO is now unipolar
  • LFO + Mod Wheel gain was too high
  • LFO Delay is now hooked up to the VCA LFO
  • LFO and Arpeggiator Rate Sliders now work in "reverse" order when Sync button is on in these sections, mirroring the slider behavior when Sync is off
  • "VCO" changed to "DCO" in the Bender section
  • Slider cap art improved to more accurately reflect original hardware

Great update, the chorus is finally fat !

For next updates, I think the HP filter should cut more lower frequencies to make real thinner->fatter sweep.
I also think, in the delay section, the MS window should be replaced with a Ping-Pong button to have a stereo delay effect. The MS window is redundant with the time slider displayed value.

Great job, keep it on !

On the Juno-106 it is possible to push both Chorus buttons, it this something you also plan to implement?
