MEAP 7.67.165 Update Released

MEAP 7.67.165

MEAP version 7.67.165 update has been released.

This update further addresses the Key Command export method.

When using the “Button” method, if the mouse is over the button it changes colour. So we have to move the mouse before searching for the button…

Now using the Key Command method there is an extra ENTER required. In one case the mouse was coincidentally being moved OVER a MIDI part on screen which caused that ENTER to open the Editor for that MIDI part…

This has been eradicated by changing ENTER to TAB and by removing the mouse move when not using Button method.

7.67.165 UPDATE:

  • Two small changes to address possible export problems using Key Commands in C6 and C7

This is a free update for all registered MEAP users.

Please note, as usual, if you are using any custom MEAP graphics you will need to replace them after installing the update.

MEAP 7.67.163 Update Released

MEAP 7.67.163

MEAP version 7.67.163 update has been released.

This update fixes an issue that was introduced with new Key Command for Export, Unfortunately Cubase / Nuendo are very fussy about when they will allow the command to begin an export to be sent.

The issue was very tricky to diagnose because it doesn’t happen all the time.

Additionally, depending on the user’s setup, sometimes the new command issued to give focus back to the Export Audio Dialog would cause a “k” to be entered as well.

It is now solved and anyone who had to revert to using the old Button Press method to start the export, can now go back to the new Key command method.

Also a very minor issue was discovered that could cause a hang if an incorrect audio application was selected. For example if you are using Cubase 7 but you selected Cubase 6 in the MEAP Audio Application area.

7.67.163 UPDATE:

  • Fixed issue with “k” being entered into filename (C6/C7)
  • Fixed long standing issue with missing code which may cause hang if incorrect audio application was selected
  • Added and removed some waits to improve performance
  • Minor tweaks

This is a free update for all registered MEAP users.

Please note, as usual, if you are using any custom MEAP graphics you will need to replace them after installing the update.

MEAP 7.67.141 Update Released

MEAP 7.67.141

MEAP version 7.67.141 update has been released.

This is a minor maintenance update which mainly deals with the new MEAp Shots Upload page but also contains a few minor tweaks.

In previous version – the MEAP Shots application would direct you to a local Box Net widget in order to upload your MEAP Shots file. This has now been changed to an online form that is part of the MEAP Website. Meaning that in future the form can be modified and adjusted without inconveniencing the user. Also all graphics are then stored in a database so that if the user even loses them, we can easily re-supply them again.

7.67.141 UPDATE:

  • Updated MEAP Shots Application
  • Updated MEAP Manual
  • New Key Commands File
  • Two minor bugs squashed

This is a free update for all registered MEAP users.

Please note, as usual, if you are using any custom MEAP graphics you will need to replace them after installing the update.

MEAP 7.67.140 Update Released

MEAP 7.67.140

MEAP version 7.67.140 update has been released.

This update has improvements for Cubase 6 and Cubase 7 export operation. it requires a new Key Commands file which should be installed automatically over your existing MEAPKeys Key Commands file. Therefore, if you have customised your MEAPKeys Key Commands file you should back it up first and make a note of any changes.

The new Key Command is CTRL+SHIFT+K which will (in Cubase 6 / 7) begin the audio export without the need for finding the Export Button. If you wish to use the old method this can be done by editing the meapdefs.ini file:

Change:

[other_options]
press_67_button=KeyCommand

To:

[other_options]
press_67_button=ImageRecognition

7.67.140 UPDATE:

  • Improved new image recognition algorithm again
  • Added Image Recognition runtime DLL to installer
  • Added (default) option to use Key Command to start Audio Export – Speeds up export significantly
  • Minor tweaks and fixes
  • Recompiled with latest compiler (14.07)

This is a free update for all registered MEAP users.

Please note, as usual, if you are using any custom MEAP graphics you will need to replace them after installing the update.

MEAP 7.67.100 Hotfix

MEAP 7.67.100 Hotfix

MEAP version 7.67.100 update has been released.

This improves on the new image recognition method and also fixes a rare bug that was introduced by this new method.

Full update details:

7.67.100 UPDATE:

  • Improved new image recognition algorithm
  • Fixed problem in some applications that will cause MEAP to get the wrong track name
  • Added option to ini file to use original style image recognition
  • Speeded up finding of track name by eliminating search for Frozen Tracks if Normal Track is found

7.67.050 UPDATE:

  • Added new MEAP (Run as Admin) Startup option

If you are experiencing initial trouble with MEAP being unable to send Key Commands to your audio application it may be due to MEAP requiring administrator privileges. An ordinary process (a process run as a standard user) can not interact with or exchange information with an admin process. So if your audio application is running with elevated privileges, MEAP cannot interact with it. As of version 7.67.050 you can now simply start MEAP by selecting the shortcut “MEAP (Run as Admin)”. Or make sure you set MEAP to Run as Administrator:

This is a free update for all registered MEAP users.

Please note, as usual, if you are using any custom MEAP graphics you will need to replace them after installing the update.

nb. Due to the extensive work and extra tools required for this release there will be small price increase for new purchases made after  March 01 2103.

So if you are considering purchasing MEAP – Now would be a good time!

This update is still free for existing registered MEAP users.
