Loomer Aspect

Loomer has released version 1.4.0 of Aspect, the semi-modular synthesizer for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Changes in Aspect v1.4

  • Support for the sustain MIDI controller.
  • Lag Generator component now only filters audio rate modulation sources when the Lag is set to above 0%.
  • Lag Generator output can now be used as an audio source, as well as a modulation source.

Aspect is available for Mac, Windows and Linux in various formats, for £65 GBP. A trial version can be downloaded from this page.

Renoise updated to v2.1

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on May 27, 2009 - comment 0 comments

Renoise, a complete music production environment for Windows, Mac and Linux, was updated to version 2.1.

The idea behind 2.1 is that until Renoise has features like a piano-roll, an arranger and audio file streaming, you should at least be able to use them externally. That is why we have added routing features to connect Renoise to other audio applications. With ReWire on Windows and MacOSX, and the Jack transport protocol on Linux, you can finally combine the best things about trackers and sequencers.

Changes in Renoise v2.1

  • Full ReWire Slave & Master support (on Windows & OSX).
  • Jack Transport Support (Linux only).
  • New Pattern Sequencer Features
    • Decoupled Sequencer Playback Now Possible.
    • Live Pattern Triggering.
  • New meta devices (Modulation / Automation Device fun)
    • Hydra Device, automate/change/broadcast multiple FX parameters with a single parameter.
    • Keytracking Device, modulates parameters depending on an instruments key (note) value.
    • MIDI Control Device, replaces the old “MIDI-CC Device”, finally offering Pitchbend, Channel Pressure, Program Change & regular controller (CC) in a single device.

Renoise 2.1 is available for purchase for 49 EUR. Demo versions can be found here.

Ardour version 2.8 released

Open source digital audio workstation Ardour has been updated to version 2.8, a mostly-bugfix version that also comes with a couple of significant features.

I am pleased to announce the release of Ardour 2.8. As has been previously announced, the 2.X series is now in a state of “feature freeze” so that we can try to concentrate on Ardour 3.0, but as a gesture of thanks to the community for the support during February, I wanted to release this mostly-bugfix version that also comes with a couple of significant features. These include much more reliable VST support on Linux, track/bus templates and, with some important qualifications, AudioUnit state and preset handling.

Changes in Ardour v2.8

  • Track/Bus Templates.
  • Distributable VST support.
  • VST preset handling.
  • VST chunk handling.
  • AudioUnit state & preset handling.
  • new playhead-to-{next,previous}-region-boundary variant commands that ignores track selection (on Linux, Windows-LeftArrow or Windows-RightArrow; on OS X, Ctrl-LeftArrow or Ctrl-RightArrow).
  • New, thoroughly edited Spanish translation.
  • New “accurate” crossfade icons.
  • Many fixes, details here.

Ardour is available as an executable for Mac and Linux (source code is available as well).
