Loomer String

Loomer has released version 1.3.0 of String, a virtual ensemble string synthesizer instrument for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

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 v1.3.0

  • 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.)
  • Integrated undo and redo, with unlimited history size.
  • Preset Browser is now maximized to fill the entire plug-in window.
  • Windows RTAS plug-in is now installed to the correct location on 64-bit Windows operating systems.
  • MIDI Program Changes are now multi-threaded, and so will no longer potentially stall the audio synthesis.
  • Fix for crash (on both Windows and Linux) that could occur when ‘space’ is pressed when confirming the overwrite preset dialog.
  • VU meters now automatically reset their overload status after a few seconds.
  • For Windows VST (32-bit and 64-bit), the preferences file can be placed alongside the DLL file to facilitate USB or portable installs.
  • Clearer font in PDF documentation.
  • Fix for rare issue that stopped presets from loading in Linux Renoise when LADSPA plug-in support is enabled.
  • Factory presets now load significantly faster.
  • Various host compatibility fixes.

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

Loomer updates Sequent effect plugin to v1.2.3

Loomer Sequent

Loomer has released version 1.2.3 of Sequent, a semi-modular sequenced beat looper multi effect for Linux, Mac, and Windows.

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 v1.2.3

  • Native 64-bit support for Linux VST plug-ins and Standalone application formats.
  • Integrated undo and redo, with unlimited history size.
  • Master Sequencer, to arrange effects along a time-line.
  • Random pattern generation functions.
  • Partial preset support for Routing configurations.
  • Thru switch for Delay Module, which if enabled allows the dry signal to be passed through when the delay effect is turned off.
  • Effects are now colour-coded for easy identification.
  • Category support in preset browser.
  • Windows VST 32-bit plug-ins and standalone applications no longer depend on additional runtime libraries. However, these libraries are still required – and installed – for the RTAS format plug-ins.
  • libjack is now weak-linked for standalone Linux. This means JACK is not required (but still recommended) for Linux users.
  • Windows RTAS plug-in is now installed to the correct location on 64-bit Windows operating systems.
  • MIDI Program Changes are now multi-threaded, and so will no longer potentially stall the audio synthesis.
  • Fix for rare issue that stopped presets from loading in Linux Renoise when LADSPA plug-in support is enabled.
  • Fixed crash that could occur when connecting Effects in the Routing Window whilst simultaneously changing Presets via MIDI.
  • Fix for crash (on both Windows and Linux) that could occur when ‘space’ is pressed when confirming the overwrite preset dialog.
  • Presets without Patterns are now considerably smaller when saved to disc.
  • Improved rendering speed of Router graphics.
  • Reduced CPU usage when switching or editing patterns.
  • Preset Browser is now maximized to fill the entire plug-in window.
  • For Windows VST (32-bit and 64-bit), the preferences file can be placed alongside the DLL file to facilitate USB or portable installs.
  • Additional presets.
  • Various host compatibility fixes.
  • PDF manual is now printer-friendly.

Sequent is available to purchase for £49 GBP excl. VAT.

  • Minor visual improvement to interface button controls.
  • All presets from Shift v1 are now included (and in many cases improved) in factory preset library.

Loomer updates Manifold and Resound to v1.5.0

Loomer has released version 1.5.0 of Manifold and Resound, two effect plug-ins for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Loomer Manifold

Manifold is a software audio effect processor that enhances an audio signal, producing a fuller, livelier, bigger sound. Input signals are split into as many as 20 individual voices, each of which are detuned, placed around the stereo panorama, and recombined with stunning results. Flexible controls mean Manifold is capable of producing a wide range of effects; from subtle modulations that add interest to lifeless sounds, to extreme detuning that fattens the weakest of input sources.

Resound is a software audio delay effect processor that emulates the sound and operation of vintage magnetic-tape echo units. Whilst not a direct copy of any one particular model, it takes features from several of the classic delay devices, and unites them into a convincing and pleasingly retro sounding effect.

Changes in Manifold / Resound v1.5.0

  • Native 64-bit support for Linux VST plugins and Standalone applications.
  • Integrated Preset Browser, with meta-data, tags, searching, and hot-swap support.
  • (Resound) Noise parameter is now scaled such that wow, flutter, and mechanical noise of the tape machine are completely absent at 0%. Older presets will still sound identical.
  • (Resound) Reversed delay tempo syncing has been improved with hosts that don’t provide accurate PPQ.
  • Reduced CPU usage.
  • Windows VST 32-bit plugins and standalone applications no longer depend on additional runtime libraries. However, these libraries are still required – and installed – for the RTAS format plugins.
  • Various host compatibility fixes.
  • Additional presets.

Manifold and Resound are available to purchase for £35 GBP + VAT each.
