Stereo Tool 9.10 is released!

Changes:
  • Added MicroMPX encoder.
  • Added The BIMP - built-in microphone processor with no added latency.
  • Latency: Now latency can be below 6 ms (measured analog input to analog MPX output).
  • Composite Clipper: Stokkemask: Redesigned Stokkemask filter to be much tighter, with far less effect on the audio.
    - Changed overlaps in measurement.
    - Measuring more often.
    - Using L-R reduction in early stages, total level reduction in final stages.
    - Updated Gaussian window sigma value.
    - Using more stages overall.
    It's also much heavier so legacy mode can still be used.
    Code:
    Measured effect of the old vs new Stokkemask filter on audio with extreme stereo content at +9 dB MPX power:
    Sample rate	Old total	New total	Old L-R		New L-R
    48000 Hz	-0.37 dB	-0.27 dB	-1.08 dB	-0.62 dB
    44100 Hz	-0.33 dB	-0.22 dB	-1.17 dB	-0.63 dB
    40000 Hz	-0.43 dB	-0.29 dB	-1.47 dB	-0.82 dB
    
  • Composite Clipper: Stokkemask: Sound depended on sample rate used, solved (for the new version).
  • Composite Clipper: Stokkemask: Replaced "Looseness" by a slider that moves the Stokkemask window.
  • Advanced Clipper: Improved filtering to reduce crackle (start of Kelly Clarkson - Because of You).
  • Advanced Clipper: Improved filtering in Controlled Distortion to avoid introducing crackle.
  • Made VST parameter names unique. Some programs apparently store by name instead of ID (which is wrong!).
  • GUI: Split Configuration into Configuration and I/O (stand alone version only).
  • GUI: Increased minimum window size.
  • GUI: Updated (increased) window size for VST plugin.
  • GUI: Stokkemask: Improved displayed graph, should be far more accurate than before.
  • Bug fix: GUI: Declipper input display looked bad for > 1 threads.
  • Bug fix: RDS: RT+ data was flashing on some receivers when the data was re-read.
  • Bug fix: RDS: UECP: Decoder was skipping short (4 bytes or less) commands at the end of a message.
  • Bug fix: MicroMPX/SST: GUI: License valid date showed 1924 instead of unlimited.
  • Bug fix: Dehummer: Continuous learning mode could base behavior on non-initialized data when increasing duration.
  • Bug fix: Advanced Clipper: "Limit instead" could stop working properly with certain settings.
  • Dehummer: Reduced minimum continuous learning time from 1 second to 0.1 second, to reduce reverb.
  • 30 euro Declipper home use version now also available for non-Winamp (DSP) versions.
  • Turned Advanced Bass Distortion Protection bass clipper asymmetry mode off by default.
  • Updated presets. Added the preset from the Processing Freakday 2018 - dozens of people requested that.
  • MicroMPX: Added multicast subscribe IP address.
  • MicroMPX: Rate limiter is enabled by default.
  • MicroMPX: License wasn't applied until a restart was done, solved.

Much better, you know what's really amazing ? I can now suddenly load 8.23 and even 7.84 settings we once used live and get a much improved sound without any problem or any distortion. Great job Hans, this new version.

Ah. There was an image that I think I fixed in version 9.02 (not completely sure anymore) that was affecting band linking - certain settings sounded really horrible (extremely distorted). Not sure if that's what you were hearing, but it might be. And it's solved now.

did any of you notice small peaks or graphs of the waveform?

I noticed that it does so only if not full screen.

That doesn't have to be a problem. Depending on the window size, it could be that value 32766 is displayed on one pixel and 32767 on the next. Unless the output meter actually turned red I wouldn't worry about it.
