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.
