eaReckon has updated all five of the plug-ins in the ANALOG87 Series to version 1.1.5.
The ANALOG87 series features 5 plugins. These have been designed and fine tuned “by human ears” and except for PR-EQUA87, you will not get a lot of visual feedback from them… just good sound. They have been thought with this idea in mind : “your ears deserve trust”
The PR-EQUA87 parametric equalizer effect plug-in now includes tips.
Changes in ANALOG87 Series v1.1.5
EQ Tips provided by Computer Music magazine have been added to PR-EQUA87. These tips are similar to those appearing in CM-EQUA87 (free eaReckon plug-in available exclusively with Computer Music 184).
Immediate handling of parameter changes before resuming a suspended plug-in. This should improve coherency of results in the context of hosts which do not “process silence”.
Fixes a rare “distortion” issue that can potentially affect the VST version of PR-EQUA87 and CS-STRIP87 on Mac OS X.
The ANALOG87 Series for Windows and Mac (VST) is available to purchase for 99 EUR. CM-EQUA87, the slightly cut down version of PR-EQUA87 is currently available with Computer Music magazine (issue 184).

Dmitry Sches has released DiversionFX Computer Music Edition, a free multi-effect plugin based on the Diversion synthesizer.
DiversionFX Computer Music Edition
DiversionFX CM Edition features
Input processing – DiversionFX offers two bus processors to transform the incoming audio into a wide variety of possible sounds. Each bus processor consists of a stereo filter with a lot of different modes, distortion and LO-FI section. We have implemented many filter modes and types of saturation stages to bring you a great armoury for creating almost any sound you need.
Effects matrix – The output of buses is processed by the effects matrix. DiversionFX uses two flexible FX lines for a separated processing of each bus processor?s output. With the separated FX processing you can make a lot of layered sounds, even which has two parts located in two fully independent sound spaces. Up to 8 effect instances can be stacked in one FX line, which is enough to create any desired processing chain.
Modulation – Many parameters in DiversionFX can be modulated by 4 LFOs, 4 MSEGs and one XY-controller, called Master Morph. These options, along with use of the Modulation Matrix, can really breathe life into a sound. Of course, automation and midi controllers are supported.
Oversampling – Typically, after a non-linear processing of the waveform inside the bus processors, digital aliasing can occur. DiversionFX takes care of this by using internal oversampling. This allows DiversionFX to achieve a perfect sound quality with an insignificant level of aliasing.
Trancegate – Finally, DiversionFX features a 32-step Trance Gate module, which turns the plugin into a monsterous multi-effect.
DiversionFX Computer Music Edition (Windows VST) is included on the CM176 DVD, and will be included with future issues of the Computer Music magazine.
