BaseHead PC version 5.x Public BETA 

The first BaseHead 5.x Public Beta  is here for the masses to play with now!
Almost 3 years of work went into this version!
This BETA is Windows only version right now.  The Mac version will come in a few months.
Below are a sample of a few tasty new features to play with.

Are there bugs?  Hell Yeah there are!!  
That is the whole of posting this version after all...hahaha  ;-)

If you find a bug, submit a Support Ticket so we can squash it quickly!
 


Things of Importance:

This version only comes in 64bit as of now!  So things like VST's or the ReWire Host DAW will also need to match based on the version that you picked.  In the end I'm not sure we will even build a 32bit version for final release being it's 2017 after all and not sure I can be bothered maintaining it TBH....hehe

Also...the new 5.x database format is only 30% complete.  
Before selecting your 4.x Database make sure to make  a copy of it first.  
5.x will upgrade the DB and make a copy of the old 4.x version format, but best you make the copy and open the copy in 5.x so you can go back and forth to the 4.x easier.

This version "might" auto-update, but it's not fully tested yet:
so check check the Beta forum often to get updates and know when new versions are posted.


BaseHead Server Users take Notice!
You HAVE to use the older 32bit versions that and in the the Previous Build Folder if you want to connect to a cubeSQL server database. 
The x64 ODBC driver made by a 3rd party is not solid at all and doesn't even connect so we are making a new one from scratch now.  So if you need to connect to your (S) database stick with the older x86 (32bit version) for now.


The user manual was just  posted, but needs a few tweak done and 5.x videos made still.
When we feel it's fairly bug free, we will Unleash this Beast on the world and make the competition cry...
Trust me!   There will be Tears!  haha

 

Requirements:
Windows 10,8,7 or Vista
(with Microsoft .NET 4.5.2 Installed) 
 

So, how do I play with this now?
First read about some of the new feature below.  
Second, send a request to support@baseheadinc.com with "PC 5.x Public Beta" in the subject line to get an invite to the Google+ Public Beta Community with more info and DL links.

I'm hoping you guys will be dig the new changes and additions we slaved over for the past 3 years!  8)
