Loomer updates Sequent to v1.3.11

Loomer Sequent

Loomer has updated the Sequent modular multi-effects unit to version 1.3.11.

Sequent has seven individual effect blocks: a Beat Looper; two Filters, both switchable between lowpass, bandpass, and highpass modes and capable of self oscillation even without an audio input; an oversampled Distortion unit; a Gate with variable depth and slew; a Panner; and a Delay unit capable of sub millisecond delay times, great for creating everything for from dub, slapback, and bouncing ball style echoes, to metallic comb filters or flanger effects.

Changes in Sequent v1.3.11

  • (fix: Mac OS X) Cables between effect modules can now be removed using a single button mouse.
  • (fix: Mac OS X) Fixed issue which could cause Sequent to be skipped by Kore or Maschine’s plug-in scan.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Space key-presses will now always be passed through to Logic, ensuring that Logic’s transport can be started and stopped.
  • (fix: Mac OS X) Gatekeeper signed installers now install correctly on Mac OS X 10.5.
  • (improvement: Windows) The 32-bit and 64-bit VST plug-ins are now installed as separate components. You can choose which one(s) to install, as well as selecting different install folders for each architecture.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed issue which caused Reaper to host new instances of Sequent as a mono plug-in.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed minor memory leak in parameter names.
  • (improvement) Clearer UI fonts in various places.
  • (improvement: Linux) Presets and configuration files are now located to comply with the XDG Base Directory Specification. Older installations will still use any existing preset library location to maintain backwards compatibility.

Sequent for Windows, Mac and Linux is available to purchase for £49 GBP.

Loomer updates Sequent to v1.3.3

Loomer has updated its Sequent effect plugin to version 1.3.3.

Sequent is a modular multi-effects unit, the ideal tool for mangling audio on stage or in the studio.

Loomer Sequent

Changes in Sequent v1.3.3

  • (feature) Keyboard entry of rotary parameter values. Rotary controls can now be typed directly into by clicking on the text value below the control.
  • (improvement:Mac OS X) Installer and all installed components are now signed in compliance with Mac OS X 10.8′s Gatekeeper system.
  • (improvement:Linux) When using the JACK audio system in standalone mode, the JACK Transport now syncs Sequent’s tempo, start/stop status, and playhead location.
  • (improvement) Step response on the filter, distortion, pan, and delay module parameters has been significantly reduced to allow for tighter control of sequenced automation.
  • (improvement) Changing sequencer patterns via MIDI keyboard can no longer cause audio glitches when using a realtime audio driver.
  • (fix) The Master sequencer will now correctly follow a host’s PPQ position, and restart in response to a host’s transport restarting.
  • (fix:RTAS) Fix for the right-channel muting when bypassing in Pro Tools when used on a mono to stereo track.
  • (improvement) Significantly improved UI response speed; reduced CPU usage when parameters are automated whilst the UI is open.
  • (improvement:Windows) Removed C++ runtime libraries redistributable requirement for RTAS plug-ins. The installer no longer installs the C++ runtime library redistributable components when installing the RTAS plug-ins.
  • (improvement) Routing and sequencing windows are now lighter and clearer.
  • (improvement) Factory presets now use a compressed pattern format, which are significantly smaller, and so improves preset loading and search times.

Sequent for Windows, Mac and Linux is available to purchase for £49 GBP.

Main changes in MusE 2.0

  • Moved to qt4, this affects the visuals and potentially improved portability.
  • Graphical automation in the arranger.
  • A new score editor.
  • MusE now defaults to using MIDI through Jack, -A enables native alsa support.
  • New style MDI GUI with a bunch of configuration options to satisfy all tastes.
  • Redone MIDI editing tool dialogs with lots of new functionality.

Loomer updates Aspect software synthesizer to v1.7.9

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 16, 2012 - comment 0 comments
Loomer Aspect

Loomer has released version 1.7.9 of Aspect, a synthesizer instrument for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Aspect is a 32-note polyphonic software instrument that combines a great-sounding, powerful synthesis engine, with a flexible semi-modular architecture and unparalleled ease of use. The core of Aspect’s superb sound are two analog modeled oscillators, each capable of producing a powerful selection of raw waveforms, and dual filters that can be routed in series, in parallel, or even blended into unique combinations.

Changes in Aspect v1.7.9

  • (Windows) Fixed incredibly rare crash which may occur when first opening the plug-in on certain 32-bit VST Windows hosts.
  • Massively improved speed and responsiveness of all UI controls.
  • Improved CPU usage when tweaking parameters from a hardware controller.
  • (Windows) For the Windows VST plug-in, when using a relative path of “.” for the presets folder, the path is now relative to the plug-in’s DLL file and not the host’s executable file. This makes it possible to easily create a portable or USB stick install of Aspect.
  • Standalone versions now support multiple simultaneous hardware controllers.
  • (Linux) User presets are now displayed in alphabetical order in the preset browser.
  • (Linux) Improved UI font selection means that a more appropriate font is often used in any Linux distributions which provide only a small selection of default fonts.
  • Fixed an issue where the OK button in the save preset browser would temporarily become disabled when switching from the Factory presets selection.
  • Various minor compatibility fixes for certain hosts.

Aspect is available to purchase for £65 + VAT.

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.
