Hey there, Flat for Education is now 1 year old! Thanks to your feedback during this first year, we have been working during the past weeks on the first large update of this produc...
Hi fellow musicians,
Corentin and I are really excited to tell you that we've finally released a full new version of our audio rendering engine!
Since the very beginning of Flat we relied on a pretty basic algorithm which required a lot of power to run "smoothly".
Almost no chromebook was able to run it on long composition like those, trending in popular.
As I said previously, this completely new algorithm is far better than the previous one. We cannot resist to do some math and statistics about CPU consumption.
We're proud to say that we improved the performance by 70%.
Meaning that it needs a lot less power to provide a better rendering.
We have some old and cheap Chromebooks back there and we never managed to get even some lag!
We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. Thank you for your confidence and your support!
Have a great day!
