Dmitry Sches has released version 1.30 of Diversion, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.
This time the update is not huge, but quite interesting. The update is all about samples. Diversion can play samples and do granular synthesis, though there is no support for AIFF and multisamples, for now just WAV.
In order to make fun from all of this, there is record button added to Diversion. Now you can click record button, play MIDI and record output audio. In a single menu click you can insert the recorded sample back into oscillator and continue over again.
Apart from samples, there are lots of minor fixes for GUI and stability both for Mac and Win.
Changes in Diversion v1.30
- Added sample playback support, including granular synthesis.
- Added output audio recording feature.
- Many minor stability fixes.
Diversion for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase at a discounted price of $89 USD (regular $169 USD) until January 15th, 2014.
