How to update Synth V Studio Pro v1.7 to v1.8?


Just read that Synthesizer V is now available as version 1.8 (and version 1.8.0b1).

I open my SynthV … click on the little cloud with a tick inside it in the right-hand column … and then click the “Check for Updates” button.

But I get no indication that there’s an update available. I’m currently on version 1.7.1

Is there some other step I need to take to update to 1.8?

Thanks for any assistance or advice.

Best Wishes,
Melbourne, Australia

1.8.0b1 is a pre-release (beta) version, the actual finished version of 1.8.0 is not available yet.

Pre-release versions must be downloaded manually instead of from within the editor because they may have unfinished features or additional bugs.

The download link can be found on the news post for the update. Some new features also require the beta version of one of the voices that are being updated (link also included below).

Not all voices have a pre-release version, and AHS pre-releases are being distributed through the AHS “My Page” instead of by Dreamtonics.


Thanks for the helpful information and links, Claire!

Now I understand!

(As I’m new to this stuff, I think I’ll wait a little until it goes out of beta.)

Best Wishes,
