Presswerk 1.1.2 (revision 7669)

Due to the new preset browser, it is important to install the update into the same location as the previous version, and to make sure to select all previously installed plugin formats during installation. Alternatively, you can remove the old installation, and start over with a fresh installation. But it is crucial to not mix old and new plugin versions, since the old versions can not cope with the new preset browser, and will crash (or otherwise misbehave) if you try to load them.

  • Fixed unsorted folders and presets when using APFS file system in macOS High Sierra
  • Fixed possible crash in Cubase when selecting presets (Mac OS X only)

  • Fixed an issue where instance parameters were not recalled correctly in some hosts (Windows only)
  • Fixed an issue where long preset names could extend outside the Preset Browser window
  • Fixed an issue where switching between presets could sometimes result in wrong Wet Gain setting
  • Various small fixes and improvements
