What's new in HH5

HH5 contains more than 500 improvements of the interface and modules optimisations.

Overall

  • Usine is now available in different versions:
    • Free : free but limited number of patches and racks and less customization options.
    • Starter: affordable price with more racks and patches, addons, some customization options,
    • Pro: unlimited version, and complete customization,
    • Expert: unlimited with extra workspaces debug tools and export of workspaces as stand-alone applications.
  • New menu command on the workspace to merge two workspaces in one. The racks of a second workspace will be added to the current workspace,
  • Many design and layouts improvement,
  • Hardware acceleration option on MacOSX,
  • Possibility to export a workspace as a stand alone application.

Grid

The grid-panel can now support multi-cursors, it means that several sections can be played at the same time. Activate the new stand alone cursor option in the settings of the section.

multi-cursors example with 4 cursors

New section selector in the The grid-panel to access to sections directly, usefull if your project contains many sections.

grid-fast-access

Video

The Video engine fluidity has been improved and the output device is now fully hardware-accelerated. Usine can handle up to 8 screens display in 4K resolution.

New OpenGL Shader module compatible with single pass interactive shader format, shadertoy, glsl sandbox shaders with generally few adaptations. shader-example

Support of OpenGL Interactive Shader Format (ISF) shader-isf

New video modules:

Audio

New set of audio modules for creative synthesis or transformation. Usine is now ready for 3D audio.

Network

Some new hi-level network modules like MQTT-client, Modbus-TCP, Web-Socket, Json Parser, etc.

Global Array

Global-array concept very helpful in complex workspaces environnements, has been introduced in HH5. It provides an efficient way to share global values (data, color, string) inside a workspace or the network. The main advantages are:

  • global values shared in all the workspaces,
  • very simple and CPU efficients,
  • can be automatically shared with connected computers,
  • can be automatically assigned to OSC messages on receive and send,
  • can be saved independently as files containing all values or only part of them.

See global array tutorial.
