Available now from http://wcnt.sourceforge.net is the latest release of Wav
Composer Not Toilet, wcnt-1.2.

wcnt is a not-real-time modular audio synth, sequencer, and sampler. it
reads plain text files containing definitions of modules and data to then
create .wav file(s) of the described sounds.

new in wcnt-1.2 (on the plus side:)

* time_map
* tempo changes are now relative to tempo specified in header.
* slightly more accurate time keeping.

* adsr
* release section cannot be triggered more than once without
an intervening note_on.
* new parameter min_time. minimum time before release section
can be activated by note_off.
* new parameter max_sustain_time.
* new parameter release_is_ratio applies to release section only.

* sequencer
* out_start_trig output works.
* slightly more accurate time keeping.
* new and improved note slide handling does not forget notes.

* osc_clock
* new input in_play_state
* new parameter response_time
* when in_play_state recieves ON, it takes response_time
milliseconds to reach new frequency.

* trigger
* received code revision

* logic_trigger
* new function xornot, only output trigger1, but only if
trigger2 has not triggered at same time.
* new parameter - precision. how many samples apart trigger1
and trigger2 can trigger, and still be treated as
occurring simultaneously.

* wait_trig
* recieved revision of wait code.
* count parameter added specifies how many times it may trigger
before returning to its wait state.
* new output - out_wait_state.

* sync_clock
* new module which acts like an LFO but keeps in sync with
tempo from time_map.
* frequency modulation with snap_to parameter.

* synth_file_reader
* new data object which can be used to read contents of another
.wc file. (it's not new, but it's data object-ness is).
* can exclude or include modules and data objects specified
in two lists.

* param_editor
* new data object which can edit top-level parameters of
modules and data objects.
* uses new parameter types which allow editing to be done
in same way as module or data object definition itself.

* input_editor
* new data object which can re-connect module inputs and
* uses new parameter types which allow connections to be made
in same way as module definition itself.

* wcnt_trigger
* new module with a single in_trig input and does nothing at

* trig_switcher
* new module which contains a list of wcnt_trigger modules and
outputs a trigger from one of the wcnt_triggers.
* in_trig input causes a switch from one wcnt_trigger to another.

Not new since all time :(on the minus side)

* filters still leave something to be desired.
* still dogged with aliasing problems.
* can only deal with 16 bit WAV format.
