Loomer releases Cumulus granular sampler (available with Computer Music 170)

Computer Magazine is featuring Cumulus by Loomer on the DVD of its latest edition.

Cumulus is a granular sampler which radically transforms sample content by breaking it into tiny slithers of audio called grains and reorganizing them to form new sounds.

Cumulus is capable of a wide ranges of timbres: from evolving atmospheric soundscapes; to organic physical textures.

Up to eight Scenes can be created; a Scene corresponding to a particular sample position and set of synthesis parameters. Scenes can be played in realtime via MIDI, or arranged internally using the built-in sequencer.

Cumulus for Windows, Mac and Linux (VST/AU/RTAS) is now available with Computer Music Magazine.

Loomer Aspect

Loomer has updated Aspect, a virtual 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 v1.7.6

  • 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.)
  • 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.
  • Preset meta data (ie, author name, notes, tags) is now correctly displayed after loading an .FXP based preset or restoring a saved project.
  • Vastly improved CPU usage when recalculating DSP graph as a result of realtime re-wiring of a modular preset.
  • Standalone application tempo can now be set to within two decimal places of accuracy.
  • Fix for GUI freeze that could occur in certain Mac OS X VST hosts.
  • Fix for LFOs being incorrectly reset every four bars when using the standalone application.
  • Fix for minor issue which caused a changed preset to temporarily be reverted to its original state when previewing presets via the browser.

Aspect 1.7.6 is available for immediate download from Loomer. A license is available to purchase for £65 + VAT.
