This is the 1.0.2 release of hexter.

hexter is a software synthesizer that models the sound generation of a Yamaha DX7 synthesizer. It can easily load most DX7 patch bank files, edit those patches via a built-in editor or MIDI sys-ex messages, and recreate the sound of the DX7 with greater accuracy than any previous open-source emulation (that the author is aware of...) hexter operates as a plugin for the DSSI Soft Synth Interface.

Release 1.0.2 adds significant capability to hexter over the 0.6.2 release, including:

  • An integrated patch editor (finally!)
  • The option to use floating-point math in the synthesis code instead of fixed point. (Careful, you may be surprised which is faster on your particular platform.)
  • Performance optimizations.
  • Better patch bank loading, thanks to Martin Tarenskeen.
  • MIDI non-registered parameter (NRPN) support, thanks to Jamie Bullock.
  • A fix for a linking error in hexter 1.0.0.
  • A fix for the GUI getting stuck disabled in previous hexter 1.0.x versions.
