Big Tick Audio Updates Zen, A Free Universal Preset Manager For Software Synths

Free Music SoftwareBig Tick Audio has released an update to its free universal presets manager, Zen 1.5.

Zen 1.5 adds a “virtual banks” feature, to organize presets from different plugins. Preset changes can be automated by midi – perfect for live situations, where a program change will create the new plugin and load it with the desired preset.

New In Zen 1.5:

  • Major code rewrite, separating Zen into a core library (ZenCore) and the Zen Browser itself
  • Added midi-controlled “virtual bank” slots, where presets from different vstis can be stored
  • Replaced tooltips with a contextual help box
  • Added support for Zen-aware plugins, including assets management
  • Added ‘hidden’ flag to permanently hide presets from search results
  • Fixed various UI refresh issues
  • Fixed crashes when duplicating instances in Ableton Live
  • Fixed button for creating own tags on OSX
  • Invalid designer keys are now rejected immediately
  • Optimized dynamic memory allocations
  • Changes for 64bits compatibility
