Sound 2 Light History

History of the Sound 2 Light application. (SL.exe)

  • Release notes for beta 1.0.0.10 (2010-11-06):
    Download setup of S2L version beta-1.0.0.10 here (2089 downloads)
    • [FIX] Closing the S2L application could cause an uncatched error while writing settings to file, crashing S2L as a result
    • [CHANGE] Functionality change in beat multiplier: The "Off" button is removed and replaced by "1", meaning that when the multiplier is set to 1 and K/G (Keep on Going) is enabled, the beat triggers to FS will continue in the same rhythm, even if the real beat is not there. You can turn this functionality to off by setting K/G to off.
  • Release notes for beta 1.0.0.9 (2010-03-16):
    Download setup of S2L version beta-1.0.0.9 here (1173 downloads)
    • [NEW] Added "Beat Divider" functionality. With this function you can divide beats by 2,4,6 or 8. Meaning that every 2nd beat (if 2 is selected) the beat is send to FreeStyler, the other is not. You can use this function by swapping the Beat multiplier/divider with the new M/D button (Multiplier / Divider). When pressed, the interface changes slightly and the controls change to Divider controls. When pressed again, S2L switches back to the Multiplier functionality.
  • Release notes for beta 1.0.0.8 (2010-02-11):
    Download setup of S2L version beta-1.0.0.8 here (429 downloads)
    • [NEW] Added "Beat Flash" functionality. This allows the user to assign one or more override buttons in S2L to control. Every beat the override button is pressed. This allow users to simple flash lights tot the beat without having to use the multiplier and multi step sequences. Flash duration can be set in msec from 100 to 10000 msec.
  • Release notes for beta 1.0.0.7 (2010-01-11):

    Download setup of S2L version beta-1.0.0.5 here (276 downloads)
    • [CHANGE] S2L now sets a sequence to step 1 instead of restarting the sequence (FreeStyler 3.2.6 and higher only!). Here fore the sequence loop option does not have to be disabled anymore (but may be). This also fixes a problem when sequences were enabled in S2L while not switched on in FreeStyler.
