Loomer String

Loomer has released version 1.14.5 of String, a string synthesizer instrument for Windows, Mac and Linux.

String is a virtual instrument that emulates the beautiful sound of the polyphonic string synthesizer.

String’s authentic tone comes from its accurate emulation of the divide-down oscillator technology behind the lush ensemble synths of the 70s.

Changes in String v1.14.5

  • (feature) Added “Tuning” parameter to modulation section. This enables String to be tuned up or down a half-semitone in either direction from standard concert pitch. Previously saved presets and projects will use A=440Hz by default.
  • (fix: Windows 64-bit VST) Fix for immediate VST crash which could occur on certain hosts when run in Windows XP 64-bit.
  • (feature: Linux) Added “Show Directory” to the preset browser, which will will reveal the selected preset directory in your window manager.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed issue which caused Reaper to host new instances of String FX as a mono plug-in.
  • (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.

String is available to purchase for £50 GBP + VAT.

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.

Loomer updates Aspect software synthesizer to v1.7.9

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 has updated the String virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows, Mac, and Linux to version 1.3.7.

String’s authentic tone comes from its accurate emulation of the divide-down oscillator technology behind the lush ensemble synths of the 70s.

Changes in String v1.3.7

  • (Windows) Fixed incredibly rare crash which may occur when first opening the plug-in on certain 32-bit VST Windows hosts.
  • (Mac) Workaround for issue that causes the preset browser to become invisible in Digital Performer 7 when the String FX Audio Unit plug-in UI is resized. This workaround, which forces this host to correctly use the Cocoa UI, can be enabled by adding the following line to the String.xml configuration file:
  • Massively improved speed and responsiveness of all UI controls.
  • Improved CPU usage when tweaking parameters from a hardware controller.
  • For the Windows VST plug-in, when using a relative path for the presets folder, the path is now relative to the plug-in’s DLL file and not the host’s executable file.
  • Standalone versions now support multiple simultaneous hardware controllers.
  • 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.
  • (Windows and Linux) Preset meta data (ie, author name, notes, tags) is now correctly displayed after loading an .FXP based preset or restoring a saved project.
  • Various minor compatibility fixes for certain hosts.

String is available to purchase for £50 GBP excl. VAT.
