What's new

For this update we've dropped the dependency on Korg's BLE MIDI driver. The driver has proven problematic on many systems, and we recommend uninstalling it completely before installing this update. Softwave now uses virtual MIDI driver software provided by loopMIDI. To use Wave as a MIDI device in your DAW, you need to install loopMIDI - if you haven't already. The software is free, and has proven to be very reliable.

Softwave will now completely manage connections with Wave and other Bluetooth MIDI devices, and expose their MIDI ports to DAWs and other software in your system. This allows for a unified and streamlined connection process on both macOS and Windows 10. Additionally, Softwave will remember which devices have been connected and will automatically reconnect when they become available.

This means that Softwave is now required to be running to maintain a connection with Wave. On macOS, if you must run Wave in standalone mode without Softwave that is still possible to do through Audio Midi Setup (provided in all recent macOS releases).

This new version also comes with a small firmware update, mostly bug fixes and stability updates.
