Gladiator PC (free update)

The update to v3.1 is available for free. It adds a VST3 version and adds a completely new standalone-version for PC.
Gladiator 3.1 is downward-compatible with all previous versions. All existing song projects and patches can be loaded without any further steps necessary.

New features:

- Added a VST3 version.
- You can select from 3 different installation types: Minimal (VST2 only), Default (VST2 + Standalone) and Full (VST2 + VST3 + Standalone).
- Added a Microsoft-approved certificate to the installer.

Enhancements:

- More smart detection of the VST2 path.
- Higher performance, faster loading and faster saving.
- Updated some links.
- Slightly enhanced sound of the reverb.
- More precise timing in 44kHz.
- More linear frequency respone for very high frequencies.
- FreebeiHost.cfg and .log file is not longer created in VST2 directory.

New features (standalone-version):

- Added a recorder that can export your jam-session to a wav-file.
- The BPM-rate can be changed.
- Added a soft-clipping-algorithm with low harmonic distortion.
- The current patch can be saved on exit and is reloaded automatically on start.
- MME-driver support.
- Midi-through support with output-routing.
- Added Midi-velocity-curves with multipoint-splines.
- Optional Midi-transposition with up to +-48 semitones.
- Optional Midi-channel-filtering.
- The current BPM-rate, CPU-load and volume is shown on the top-panel.
- Tooltips are shown on the top-panel.

Enhancements (standalone-version for PC):

- Lower latencies for the soundcard drivers.
- More responsive GUI with 120 Hz refresh-rate for smooth knob movements.
- Many further small enhancements.

Changes:

- The 32 bit version will not longer be updated. If you still depend on it, you can install Gladtaor 3.0 instead.


Notes:


Steinberg advertises that their VST3 format should have 'many essential new features' and 'advantages' compared to competing plugin-formats.
In practise, we do not think that this is true for synthesizers, especially since VST3 does not offer proper MIDI support.

The updates page shows version 3.1 for the 64-bit PC version, but the link downloads 3.0. The date on the installer even shows it is from 2018.

I checked out the link above:

It works as intended and shows v3.1

The full installer on the main website is still not available. It will be online in two weeks.
