* What is FabFilter Micro?

FabFilter Micro is the ultimate lightweight filter plug-in, making the classic
FabFilter sound affordable for everyone. With just one filter and an envelope
follower to modulate its frequency, it can be used for simple filtering tasks,
sound coloring and creative filtering effects.

For more information, see or refer to the Introduction

chapter in the FabFilter Micro help file.

* What's new in FabFilter Micro 1.17?

mode or closing a plug-in window.

miss the last line of text on macOS Sierra (10.12).

Added a workaround for a bug in macOS Sierra (10.12) that prevented the help file
from opening correctly. The help file is now displayed in a web browser rather than
the Help Viewer.

Fixed an issue in the AAX plug-ins that could cause loss of existing automation
data when writing automation in Automation Preview mode, for example when creating
or deleting bands in Pro-Q 2.

Fixed a bug in the AAX plug-ins that caused parameter values that are very close to
the default value to remain at the default value when loading a session.

Updated Windows help file to display correctly on High DPI monitors.

Fixed a bug in the VST3 plug-ins when restoring a session in FL Studio 12 using a
custom display scaling factor such as 125%: the plugin window could end up at the
wrong size.
Small bug fixes and improvements.

* What's new in FabFilter Micro 1.15?

Restored support for Windows XP.

Fixed a bug in the VST3 version of the plug-in that could cause a crash in FL
Studio and possibly other hosts after removing a plug-in from a session or closing
a session.

Various small bug fixes.

Tools, the state of the bypass parameter would not be restored correctly on

* What's new in FabFilter Micro 1.12?

Now includes 64-bit AAX plug-in for Pro Tools 11. The 32-bit AAX plug-in has also
been updated to the latest AAX v2 format and requires Pro Tools 10.3.5 or later.

Changing parameters via the mouse wheel will now correctly record automation and
generate proper undo states. In addition, you can now also control switches with
the mouse wheel.

In the presets menu, changed the Options > View Program/Bank Numbers command to
Enable MIDI Program Changes, which now actually enables/disables MIDI program
changes as well as showing the program/band number for presets. This ensures that
the plug-in only responds to MIDI program changes when this is desired.
Fixed a bug that could prevent sample-accurate processing of recorded MIDI control
change messages.

Fixed a bug on OS X that could cause Help Hints to pop up even if the mouse cursor
was outside the plug-in interface.

Enter after typing a parameter value directly.

changes are correctly saved in Maschine by Native Instruments.

Fixed possible crash when removing the VST 2 or VST 3 plug-in on Mac OS X while the
interface is open, for example in Studio One.

OS X, for example Triumph.

for automation points) in the VST 2 and VST 3 plug-ins.

Improved keyboard handling on Windows, fixing the "space key stealing" problem in
Studio One and FL Studio.

Audio Unit hosts and Pro Tools (e.g. for automation purposes).

In addition to the RTAS format, the plug-in is now also available in the AudioSuite
format for Pro Tools.

delete your license key from a computer if needed.
