The Mela 3.9 Update Is On Its Way!!

Nikolozi will soon be unleashing a significant update for Mela 3 which introduces some cool features. The update will be FREE for existing Mela 3 users. Mela 3 is currently available for $19.99.

What’s new in version 3.9

  • Arpeggiator Module:
    • Added the Retrig parameter, when enabled the arpeggiator pattern restarts on the first note-on.
    • The new Sync and Offset parameters replaced Arpeggiator’s Rate parameter. This aligns with how the other modules work.
    • The Sync parameter allows you to set the Arpeggiator’s timing in powers of 2.
    • The Offset parameter allows you to make the Arpeggiator rate triplet or dotted, or anything in the 50-200% range.
    • Modulate these parameters to achieve interesting results.
    • Renamed the Length parameter to Gate to reduce confusion about its functionality.
  • LFO Module:
    • Added the Tilt parameter to the LFO module for the Triangle and Square waveforms.
    • When Tilt is at -100% and +100% the Triangle morphs into the Ramp Down and Ramp Up waveform.
    • For the Square, the Tilt parameter sets the pulse-width amount.
    • Creatively modulate it to generate even more interesting and weird LFO shapes.
  • Other MIDI Module Improvements:
    • Now it’s easier to set the sync’s Offset parameter to triplet and dotted values. In the following modules, Arpeggiator, LFO, Note Echo, Note Length, Random and Strummer, you can tap on the Offset parameter’s label and select either the Triplet or Dotted item from the pop-up menu.
    • Improved the design of MIDI modules’ on/off toggle.
    • Fixed Note Length module causing stuck notes when a note-off event would fall beyond the host’s loop end beat position, while the looping was enabled.
    • Fixed Note Echo module sometimes erroneously accumulating notes to repeat when the host has looping enabled.
    • Set a maximum number (32) of notes Note Echo will track for repeating.
  • MIDI Buses:
    • Added MIDI Buses to the Mela MIDI plug-in.
    • In addition to having external MIDI I/O now you can route MIDI messages between lanes.
  • Other Changes:
    • Fixed checkmarks not showing for selected items in the PopUpList on macOS.
    • In Settings, the Audio Engine section now also displays which type of Mela plug-in is loaded by the host: Instrument, Audio Effect or MIDI Effect. Double tapping it will show aumu, aufx or aumi respectively.
    • Improved plug-in’s beat position synchronisation with the host.
    • Added new presets.
    • Updated the User Guide.

About Mela 3

Mela is an intuitive virtual analog synthesiser and multi-effects processor with a streamlined interface. It can be loaded either as an instrument, audio effect or a MIDI processor plug-in inside a host application such as AUM, BeatMaker, Cubasis, GarageBand, Ableton Live or Logic Pro.

If you begin working on a track in GarageBand on your iPhone or iPad, and later open the project in Logic Pro on your Mac, then all instances of Mela, Mela FX and Mela MIDI plug-ins will load just as you left them on your iOS device.
