Click the version below to see detailed changes done for each of the above and to see why having a active Maintenance Plan is ideal  😉

2022.05.25 -2022.08.11 (with Apple Silicon M1 Support Now)


    • Fixed an error that could occur when certain metadata was included in a file and the file was transferred out of BaseHead after being summed to mono
    • Fixed issue where rescan of imports could fail if date format of import differed from the OS date region format
    • disableInternetCheck function added for Custom Commands
    • Licensing:  Fairly major fix was just done.  All users should update to this version as soon as possible.
    • CodeMeter: Changed Runtime for CmStick users to version 7.5


    • Fixed issue that BPM [field] wasn’t importing
    • CPM: login fix done for users with non-ASCII characters in their name
    • Fixed: rather rare bug that could cause BaseHead to crash when spotting some multi-channel files



    • Support M1 processors (Apple Silicon) Universal binary now.
      This version is considered BETA for M1 users.
    • IMPORTANT:  VST2 plugins are not compatible with M1 processors in this version. So if you need to use them, run this new binary with the ‘Open using Rosetta’ option till we make a VST3 library to use
    • Nuendo/Cubase SKI plugin updated to v2022.4.01 and is now a Universal library file.
    • REAPER RPI plugin updated to v2022.4.0 and is now a Universal library file.
    • macOS 10.13 Dropped like a hot potato.   It has reached EOL (End of Life) and is no longer supported by Apple anymore so only 10.14 or higher is supported now cuz too difficult to Support this OS and build with the latest development tools and add M1 (Apple Silicon) at the same time.
    • Process Panel: Fixed a preset saving issue for rack/monitor presets that could cause some complex modular type plugins to not save their state
    • Changed Mix Matrix to [speaker * chns].  This might cause distortion in UAD Apollos if I remember correctly from memory, but is way more correct for all other audio devices.
    • REAPER: RPI Plugin updated to v2022.4 to address spotting issue and also fix crashes when trying to spawn a second copy of Reaper.  Make sure to choose it to install in the full installer.
    • Collections: Added the ability to drag a collection into another collection as a sub-collection
    • Collections: new right click menu item “Make Root Collection” that takes any folder and brings it to be a Root Collection.
    • Removed old frameworks that are not compatible with M1 Processors that skinned the comboboxes and scroll bars and now using default macOS ones.
    • Since popup boxes and other controls are now set to macOS Standard controls.  We Highly recommend setting your Accent Color to “Graphite” for the best looking appearance now.
    • AAC plugin removed cuz they now play native in BaseHead now so no longer needed to play .mp4 files.
    • Cloudpacks: Optimizations done by not allowing reverse playback now since needs to scan to the end of file and makes things slooooowww.
    • Cubase 12 Support Added:  for spotting “S” and “X” added and ‘Follow Session Folder’.
    • Options Page: new option ‘Optimize for Cloud NAS’– Turn this ON if using services like LucidLink or Google Drive with File Streaming to speed things up.
    • CPM: Fixed issue that GeoLocation service is down and and it  was disabling the Manager and Store Tabs
    • Disabled UnPurchased SFX Previews of Apple Silicon M1 Processor since M1’s can’t use VST2 plugins.  So you will need launch it using ‘Open Using Rosetta’ for now if need to preview SFX.
    • Fixed:  _WfCache folder from being created when WF Caching was set to OFF
    • License Request also made to run on Apple Silicon.  Keep in mind if binding to a System CPU you need to run BaseHead in the same mode as License Request as two different CPU ID’s are possible.  The M1 and a virtual Intel one.
    • Timecode: when found in the metadata the TimeDisplay switches to T.C. mode automatically and also the timeline on the Waveform shows T.C. values now with a toggle button that appears when T.C. is detected.
