Mystery Islands releases Virus|HC AudioUnit & VSTi Editor / Librarian Plug-in

Mystery Islands has announced the release of Virus|HC AudioUnit & VSTi Editor / Librarian Plug-in for Mac.

Mystery Islands Virus|HC Editor

Virus|HC Librarian Editor AudioUnit & VSTi plugin, our answer to your prays. (HC = Hardware Controller). After several years ago, Access Music introduced their Virus TI synth range, which was boosted up with massive features such as audio stream directly into your DAW via USB and also the Virus plugin. Due to these great features, the most loved editor & librarian program “SoundDiver” was forgotten and many Virus users instantly upgraded to Virus TI and perhaps forgot their Virus A, Virus B or Virus C synth.

Well, it is time to pick those synths up, connect the PSU, audio and MIDI cables! We created the Virus|HC plugin to meet the standards required for DAW-working environments: Edit your Access Virus hardware synth directly from your DAW without flipping thru different applications, organize patches within your plugin window to load, edit and save them directly to your HDD. You can run our plugin in Mac AudioUnit & VSTi format and PC VSTi format (both 32 & 64bit).

Virus|HC Editor plug-in is currently available for Mac (PC coming soon) from Producers Lunchbox, priced at 64.95 EUR.

Patchworks updates Conductr Ableton controller app with Claydr MIDI keyboard

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Patchworks has released version 1.3 of the Conductr Ableton Live controller app, which now includes CLAYDR, a smart & user friendly MIDI keyboard that makes sense on an iPad.

Conductr with Claydr

Until today, Conductr was best known as a live performing-oriented Ableton controller app. But the developers want to keep the app growing and expanding its possibilities as much as possible.
Now, Conductr gets into the production realm with the release of CLAYDR, a keyboard designed to improve every artist’s composition and performance with some unique features.

Claydr works as a MIDI keyboard that allows you to play with any instrument featured in Ableton Live. It will help you to transform your ideas into music, no matter how great or not so great your skills are: Claydr features an extremely versatile chord & scales generator and can even correct out of scale notes when linked to a MIDI hardware keyboard.

Claydr features

  • 4 rows onscreen: each row can contain a different octave and can be edited independently.
  • Each row’s settings include functions such as Add Note, Velocity (3 different modes), Spread, Random, Hold and Bend.
  • More parameters can be controlled using the Claydr Shift Mode: Scale Selection (58 different options), Key mode and Chromatic mode.

The Conductr free basic version includes a one row and one scale only version of Claydr. Users can purchase Claydr Premium to get 4 rows onscreen and 58 scales. All previous Conductr Premium Full Pack owners will get Claydr’s complete version for free.
