<span style="font-size: 20px">&gt; Cardinal 22.05 has been released</span><br/>
On <i>2022-05-15</i> by<i> falkTX</i>

Hello everyone, yet another release of <a href="" target="_blank">Cardinal</a> is here.<br/>
<a href="" target="_blank">Cardinal</a>
is a free and open-source virtual modular synthesizer plugin.<br/>
It is based on the popular <a href="" target="_blank">VCV Rack</a>
but with a focus on being a fully self-contained plugin version.
This is a big update with not just bug-fixes but also new modules and a few behaviour changes too.<br/>
Particularly interesting for existing Rack users is the inclusion of the popular Fundamental modules,
though in customized fashion.<br/>
A new
<a href="" target="_blank">Audio to CV Pitch</a>
module also makes a debut, based on
<a href="" target="_blank">DISTRHO PitchTrackingSeries</a>
which was a shared effort for
<a href="" target="_blank">pushing the feature into hardware units</a>.

<li>Add <a href="" target="_blank">Audio to CV Pitch</a> Core module</li>
<li>Fix buffer size not always correct in the Audio Unit plugin</li>
<li>Force UI keyboard focus (delayed focus grab after UI is open)</li>
<li>Mute audio output if bypassed</li>
<li>Remap Ctrl key + mouse clicks to right-click on macOS to better deal with its silly "one button" UX</li>
<li>Store a few more properties as plugin state, including favorites</li>

<h3>Extra Notes</h3>
For packagers: fftw3f is now an optional dependency, required for "Audio to CV Pitch" module.<br/>
The module will built if fftw3f is available during build, otherwise disabled.
The "lv2export" stuff has been reworked and works now, includes 3 test plugins.<br/>
This allows to export individual modules as single lv2 plugins, with very minimal binaries and no UI.<br/>
For now it is still quite experimental, just to mess around with.<br/>
Future releases might enable them by default, still undecided.

The source code plus Linux, macOS and Windows binaries can be downloaded at
<a href="" target="_blank"></a>.<br/>
Cardinal is released as LV2, VST2 and VST3 plugin, plus AudioUnit and JACK standalone for certain systems.<br/>
The VST3 version is still considered experimental, prefer to use LV2 or VST2 if possible at this time.
