Homegrown Sounds releases Astralis VSTi Synthesizer Pack v1.1
Homegrown Sounds has released version 1.1 of Astralis VSTi Synthesizer Pack, a bundle which initially comprises of 2 synthesizers: Astralis A and Astralis B (which is a slightly simpler single synth version).
New in v1.1
- A Bank of 16 patches by Tim Conrardy added for Astralis B
- Added Pitch Bend on\off per synth/oscillator
- In the master section is a new slider for setting the pitch bend Keyboard range so that only a specific area will be affected by pitch bend.
- All slider ends are now fine controls for moving small increments.
- Microtonal Patches can now be installed anywhere.
- All synths now display the correct version number.
- Register box now displays correctly.
- Arp now correctly stops all notes when switched off
- Numerous other minor enhancements and bug fixes
Patches from previous versions are not compatible due to the large changes in v1.1. These versions have a unique ID and can be installed alongside though it is recommended that you recreate your patches in 1.1, this is the unfortunate sacrifice for some of the improved functionality.
A license for Astralis can still be purchased for the introductory price of US 29.89 (50% off).
