bitKlavier v2.3 now available
our first newsletter!
We finally have a mailing list! Don't worry, we won't fill your mailbox; we'll only use this for occasional release announcements and so on.
The primary new feature in v2.3 is spring tuning, a novel adaptive tuning system that we are excited to share; imagine a network of oscillating springs, one between every pair sounding notes, all pushing and pulling towards their own ideal just tuning. Clear? Ok, well, there's too much to explain in an email! Best to download it, try it out, and check out the updated manual. This version also includes dozens of historical temperaments, proper installers, as well as a number of other features and bug fixes. There is lots more in works for future versions too.
v2.3 is available for Mac, Windows, and iOS, in standalone and VST/AU plugin formats.
