WaveMachine Labs introduces Auria multi-track recording app for iPad 2

WaveMachine Labs has introduced Auria, a new multi-track recording software for iPad 2.

With the ability to play 48 mono or stereo 24bit/44.1 kHz tracks simultaneously, record up to 24 of those tracks simultaneously (through any supported USB multichannel audio interface), and edit and mix with familiar tools and full parameter automation, it’s clear Auria sets a new standard for iPad multitracking.

WaveMachine Labs Auria

What’s more, Auria’s 64-bit Double Precision architecture ensures ample headroom for plug-in processing and mix summing, transforming your iPad into a recording and mixing system with sound quality that rivals most DAWs.

The depth is in the details. Like customizable pan laws. Like meters that are selectable between VU and RMS. Like full delay compensation for all tracks, including aux sends and subgroups. Complete with a vintage-inspired channel strip on every channel, a dedicated master channel strip, VST plug-ins engineered by renowned makers such as PSPaudioware, Overloud, Fab Filter and Drumagog, and support for Dropbox, Soundcloud, AAF, and MP3, Auria truly raises the bar for recording and mixing on the iPad.

Auria features

  • Up to 48 tracks of simultaneous playback.
  • Record up to 24 tracks at once.
  • VST plugin support (iOS format only).
  • AAF Import and Export.
  • Fully featured multitrack editor.
  • Includes optional plugins from PSPaudioware, Fabfilter, and more.

WaveMachine Labs is demonstrating Auria at the Winter NAMM, Booth 6905. The app will be available in the 1st quarter of 2012.

FabFilter updates all plug-ins incl. AAX support

FabFilter AAX suppor

FabFilter has released updates for all FabFilter plug-ins, introducing support for the new AAX plug-in format in Pro Tools 10.

The FabFilter Pro-L limiter now offers a new ‘Compact’ view, and the FabFilter Pro-Q EQ plug-in features spectrum analyzer and solo mode improvements. Furthermore, all FabFilter Pro plug-ins now support the most common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces. The updates are now available on all platforms: Windows and Mac OS X, 32-bit and 64-bit.

New features and bug fixes in FabFilter Pro-Q

  • Improved the real-time spectrum analyzer: it is now more responsive and has a smoother curve release, making it easier to visually follow the curves over time. In addition, the combined Pre+Post setting now compensates the plug-in latency correctly in Linear Phase mode.
  • Improved Solo mode to transparently limit its output volume to -6 dB, avoiding undesired volume spikes at all times.
  • Fixed bug that caused an artificial roll-off to 0 Hz in the real-time spectrum analyzer.
  • Fixed bug when dragging multiple bands in the EQ display that could cause small round-off errors in the frequency parameter values relative to each other.
  • Fixed bug that caused Solo mode to function incorrectly on per-channel bands as soon as you changed the frequency of the band while in Solo mode.

New features in FabFilter Pro-L

  • Added new Compact interface layout, which hides the animated level display. Instead, larger level meters and all advanced controls including a large Output knob are shown. To switch between interface layouts, click the resize button in the bottom-right corner of the interface.

Other new features and bug fixes

  • All FabFilter plug-ins: Added support for the new AAX plug-in format for Pro Tools 10. The AAX plug-in is 100% compatible with the RTAS plug-in: Pro Tools 10 will automatically use our new AAX plug-ins instead of the existing RTAS plug-ins when loading existing sessions.
  • All FabFilter plug-ins: Improved keyboard handling on Windows, fixing the “space key stealing” problem in Studio One and FL Studio.
  • All FabFilter plug-ins: Improved mouse handling behavior in Pro Tools when Cmd+Ctrl / Ctrl+Win – clicking a control to show the automation timeline.
  • FabFilter Pro-Q, Pro-L, Pro-C and Pro-G: Added support for the most important Pro Tools hardware control surfaces, such as Avid ICON D-Control and D-Command. In FabFilter Pro-Q, we have added a new Flat 7 Bands factory preset that can be used as your personal default preset in combination with a control surface.
  • FabFilter Pro-G and Pro-C: It is now possible to double-click the low-pass and high-pass sidechain filtering buttons to enter parameter values directly.
  • FabFilter Pro-Q, Timeless 2, Twin 2, Volcano 2 and Simplon: In the AU and VST3 plug-in formats, parameters are now grouped where possible to make automation easier to overview in the host.
  • FabFilter Timeless 2: Fixed a bug that caused incorrect side-chain handling in the mono-to-stereo RTAS version of the plug-in.
  • FabFilter Timeless 2: Fixed bug that caused the Dry Enabled parameter always to be re-enabled when loading a version 1 preset, such as Dubby 05 bM in the Best Of folder.

The updates are free for existing FabFilter customers. Updates and 30-day trial versions can be downloaded from FabFilter.

FabFilter has announced full support for Avid’s new AAX plug-in format, introduced in Pro Tools 10.

AAX versions of all plug-ins (FabFilter Pro-L, Pro-Q, Pro-G, Pro-C, Volcano 2, Twin 2, Timeless 2, One, Simplon and Micro) will be made available in November 2011. Of course, these updates will be free for existing FabFilter users.

Frederik Slijkerman, co-owner of FabFilter Software Instruments: “We always try to adapt to new standards and formats as soon as possible, because we know how important this is for our users. That’s why we’ve
also put serious effort into supporting 64-bit hosts and the VST3 format in the past. During the last months before the Pro Tools 10 release, we’ve worked closely together with Avid to be able to support the new AAX format right away, and we’re very happy to announce this now!”.

In the future, the new AAX format will replace Avid’s existing RTAS plug-in format. For now, both AAX and RTAS plug-ins can be used together in Pro Tools 10. The AAX and RTAS versions of all FabFilter plug-ins will be fully compatible with each other.

All FabFilter plug-ins support Windows and Mac OS X in 64-bit and 32-bit, VST and VST 3, Audio Units, RTAS and AudioSuite plug-in formats, with AAX support coming in November 2011.

FabFilter updates Pro-G to v1.01 (incl.Ducking style)

FabFilter Pro-G

FabFilter has updated the Pro-G gate/expander plug-in to version 1.01, adding a much requested ‘ducking’ style and various bug fixes and small improvements.

Originally released in May 2011, FabFilter Pro-G is a top-quality gate/expander plug-in with flexible side chain routing options and a streamlined, well-designed user interface. Equipped with linear-phase oversampling, mid/side processing and precise metering, Pro-G is an indispensable addition to any mixing and mastering tool kit.

Changes in Pro-G v1.01

  • Added new ‘Ducking’ style, implementing inverted gate/expander behavior. A typical application of ducking is to automatically lower the level of a musical background track when a voice-over starts, and to bring the level up again when the voice-over stops (in movies and on radio broadcasts). Ducking can also be used to achieve the well-known and very popular ‘pumping’ effect, much used in modern dance music.
  • Improved keyboard handling on Windows, fixing the “space key stealing” problem in Studio One and FL Studio.
  • Improved mouse handling behavior in Pro Tools when Cmd+Ctrl / Ctrl+Win -clicking a control to show the automation timeline.
  • Fixed crash in MOTU Digital Performer with the mono version of Pro-G.

FabFilter Pro-G for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) is available to purchase for 129 EUR / $174 USD / 114 GBP. The FabFilter Pro-G 1.01 update is available now.

FabFilter releases Pro-G gate/expander plug-in

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on May 09, 2011 - comment 0 comments

FabFilter has announced the release of Pro-G, a gate/expander effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Following the very well-received Pro-L limiter, Pro-Q equalizer and Pro-C compressor plug-ins, FabFilter now introduces FabFilter Pro-G: a top-quality gate/expander plug-in with flexible side chain routing options and a streamlined, well-designed user interface. Equipped with linear-phase oversampling, mid/side processing and precise metering, Pro-G is an indispensable addition to the FabFilter tool kit.

FabFilter Pro-G

FabFilter Pro-G offers five meticulously fine-tuned algorithms, including classic analog models and upward expansion, as well as specific designs for vocal and guitar processing. In combination with the adjustable threshold, ratio, range settings and attack, release, hold and look-ahead times, Pro-G will process your drum and vocal tracks smoothly and with character. At the same time, Pro-G is also the perfect tool to subtly and precisely restore lost dynamics while mastering.

As you would expect, the well-thought-out interface has been crafted with much attention to detail. FabFilter Pro-G’s prominent real-time level display and accurate meters smartly combine input, output and gain reduction levels, giving you immediate insight in the plug-in’s dynamic behavior. Together with the transfer curve and threshold level feedback, choosing the right settings at the right time couldn’t be easier.

A click on the Expert button will resize the interface to make space for additional external side-chain input and side-chain filtering controls. The expert panel contains wet/dry level and panning controls, and allows the side-chain path and linking to be set up in any way imaginable. The interface conveniently adapts its size to reveal the expert controls only when needed, making it just as easy to use FabFilter Pro-G as a straightforward gate, or as a full-featured creative expander.

Pro-G features

  • Five perfectly fine-tuned expander/gate algorithms: Classic, Clean, Vocal, Guitar and an upward expansion style.
  • Beautifully program-dependent attack and release curves.
  • Precise and helpful metering, including a real-time level display.
  • Low CPU usage.
  • Adjustable range, hold time and knee settings.
  • Optional look-ahead time up to 10 ms.
  • Expert mode that offers highly customizable side chain and level options, conveniently hidden in normal mode.
  • Mono, stereo or mid/side processing.
  • Up to four times linear-phase oversampling.
  • Zero-latency operation mode.
  • External side chain option.
  • MIDI triggering: open the gate/expander with your MIDI keyboard.
  • Separate dry/wet level settings.
  • Easy to set up for common gating/expansion situations with the included factory presets.
  • Stereo and mono plug-ins available.
  • All the usual FabFilter quality you’ve come to expect: perfectly fine-tuned knobs and controllers, interactive MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B switch, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample accurate automation, SSE optimization, and more.

Pro-G for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AudioSuite) is available to purchase for 129 EUR / $174 USD / £114 GBP. Bundles with FabFilter Pro-G and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available. Existing FabFilter customers can purchase Pro-G with great discounts by logging in to their online user account.
