Version 1.1.2 is now available. Changes include ability to set the on-screen mouse origin.

2014.March.24

Version 1.1.1 is ready for public consumption. Changes include resizable main window (including mouse status wheel), enhanced portability and compatibility, and finally the ability to incorporate five mouse buttons and both scroll wheels as modular control input.

2014.March.10

Version 1.1 is come. Noteworthy enhancements include optional real-time modular output indicators, minimisable modules, eleven glitches removed, improved appearance, and UAC (User Account Control) awareness for proper compatibility with Windows Vista and higher. Extensive internal renovations should help to enable future innovations.

2013.February.03

RolloSONIC has been encapsulated to work with Windows 8 (64-bit), and all main features have been found fully functional -- at lower latency than on Windows XP.

2008.February.18

1.0.1 is now available - possibly removing a bug and providing a new module: "MIDI-Slider" - which allows for taking input from MIDI-based sliders, knobs, levers, buttons, etc. as control data.

2007.November.01

RolloSONIC is now free for personal, educational, AND commercial uses.

2007.May.01

1.0 Final (1.0) is finally available - yielding new per-sample processing system for audio modules and real-time configurable sample-rate for control-data, with global, intelligent control-data smoothing system, at a new sampling rate of 48-Khz, 80-bits per sample per channel, bringing the ability to use audio-data as control-data and vice versa, allowing the option of enabling/disabling time-critical CPU priority, and further improving the latency control system. Along with this version comes various new updates, such as new mouse-status indicator thing, a couple of new mouse-based parameters, new right-click option to get new module or to access configuration menu, new step-size options on Oscillator and Modulator modules, categorization of the new-module menu, 17 more built-in configurations, the removal of many bugs and glitches, and several other, smaller enhancements. Also in this update are 5 new modules... "Audio step-function" (providing ability to digitize the signal-amplitude), "Control step-function" (same as audio version but for control-data), "Control neuron" (to allow simplified, biological simulations), "Control polyphonicator" (to create polyphonic control-data by combining several monophonic/polyphonic control sources), and "Control note-envelope" (providing standard ADSR envelope functionality - and then some).

2007.March.01

1.0 Beta (1.0b) is now available - making modulation- and other-rates - consistent (and correct) when running on different computers, cleaning up the main user-interface and changing the program's default colour-configuration, removing annoying glitch when clicking colours in the colour-configuration, and adding two new modules - "Low-pass" (providing high-strength, wide-range, dynamic, frequency capping - useful to tone out unnecessary shrill sounds), and "High-pass" (providing high-strength, dynamic, low- and mid-spectrum, frequency-cutting).

2007.February.01

1.0 Alpha-6 (1.0a6) is now available - resolving freeze-on-stop bug with MIDI-module, resolving click-glitch with saw-slider, resolving a bias-offset glitch with distortion-module, making audio-input the correct amplitude, adding new smoothing technology to the mouse-based inputs - making for a more analog feel, heavily-decreasing aliasing on frequency-input of oscillator-module, adding noiselitude-functionality to modulator-module, bettering noiselitude algorithm (on modulator, oscillator, and distortion-module), adding phase-adjustment control to both modulator and oscillator-module, adding new, MIDI-note-catcher functionality to sequencer-module, a few other various improvements/changes, and adding 6 new modules - "Control-Note-Combine" (allowing for MIDI-input to be used for stateful and/or stateless command of control-sliders), "Control-Note-Retard" (allowing for various forms of note-gliding functionality), "Control-Low-Cut" (aiding in solving oscillator-based, bias-offset problems when using full, or low range frequency-control), "Control-Sensor" (providing new, position-configurable, mouse-based input-data), "Ding-Dong" (attempting to provide a metallic, ding/dong sound), and "Output-Analyzer" (providing an output-analyzing, real-time oscilloscope).

2006.December.19

1.0 Alpha-5 (1.0a5) is now available - resolving disappearing module glitch (introduced in v1.0a4), with a new default colour configuration, and adding some simple borders to the modules and buttons.

2006.December.17

1.0 Alpha-4 (1.0a4) is now available - resolving visual and user-interface based glitches with the modules.

2006.December.04

1.0 Alpha-3 (1.0a3) is now available - fixing MIDI-note, frequency-expansion glitch, resolving untamable latency-control with some systems, and adding 4 new modules - "Control-Sequence" (a simple sequencer), "Control-Offset" (enabling for dynamic, control-based offset-control), "Control-Gain" (enabling for dynamic, control-based gain-control), and "Control-Input" (makes for a simple, synthesis-control slider).

2006.November.10

1.0 Alpha-2 (1.0a2) is now available - fixing some problems and with a couple of other small, positive changes.

2006.October.31

RolloSONIC version 1.0a is finally ready and is released.
