Loomer updates Sequent to v1.3

Loomer Sequent

Loomer has updated Sequent, a multi effects plug-in for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Sequent is a step-sequenced multi-effect processor with a flexible modular effects routing system, an incredibly powerful beat looper, twenty-three parameter sequencers, and a wealth of randomization options. Sequent is the ideal tool for mangling audio on stage or in the studio.

Changes in Sequent v1.3.0

  • Native 64-bit VST plug-in for Mac OS X (64-bit VST support requires Mac OS X 10.6 or greater; 64-bit Audio Unit requires Mac OS X 10.5 or greater; all other formats require Mac OS X 10.4 or greater. )
  • Bitcrusher effect added to distortion module.
  • Massively improved speed and responsiveness of all UI controls.
  • Improved CPU usage when wiring effects in the modular view.
  • Improved CPU usage when tweaking parameters from a hardware controller.
  • Improved CPU usage when rapidly switching patterns.
  • Sequence syncing is now more reliable for hosts which provide only periodic PPQ positional information.
  • Rotary controls for Looper mode and Filter types are now replaced by combo controls.
  • For the Windows VST plug-in, when using a relative path for the presets folder, the path is now relative to the DLL, not the host.
  • Standalone versions now support multiple simultaneous hardware controllers.
  • MIDI Program Changes are now multi-threaded, and so will no longer potentially stall the audio synthesis.
  • Fix for GUI freeze that could occur in certain Mac OS X VST hosts.
  • Preset searches are now multi-threaded. Preset browser can now immediately respond to user interaction, even whilst searching a massive preset library, or when browsing a folder containing a large number of presets.
  • Added soft notching for volume and crossfade controls, making unity volume and 50% crossfade mix easier to dial in.
  • Fixed extremely rare crash that could occur on a minority of Windows 32-bit systems when opening the UI.
  • Preset meta data (ie, author name, notes, tags) is now correctly displayed after loading an .FXP based preset or restoring a saved project.
  • Standalone application tempo can now be set to within two decimal places of accuracy.

Sequent is available to purchase for £49 GBP excl. VAT.
