Loomer Aspect

Loomer has released version 1.7.4 of Aspect, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Mac, Windows, 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 v1.7.4

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Clearer font in PDF documentation.

Aspect 1.7.4 is available for immediate download from Loomer.

Loomer Aspect

Loomer has released version 1.7.0 of Aspect, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Changes in Aspect v1.7.0

  • Native 64-bit VST and Standalone application versions for Linux.
  • Integrated undo and redo, with unlimited history size.
  • Mono legato modes, with selectable low, high, and last note priority.
  • Mono unison: stack up to five unison voices in mono legato mode.

  • Factory presets now load significantly faster.
  • Additional presets.
  • Various host compatibility fixes.

Aspect is available to purchase for £65 GBP + VAT.

Loomer String

Loomer has released version 1.2.3 of String, a string ensemble synthesizer instrument for Linux, Mac and Windows.

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 v1.2.3

  • Native 64-bit VST plugin and standalone application for Linux.
  • Integrated Preset Browser, with meta-data, tags, searching, and hot-swap support.
  • Additional presets. All presets now tagged and annotated.
  • Presets can now be sorted using auto categorization.
  • String Instrument and FX now have their own individual default preset.
  • Reduced CPU usage.
  • CPU usage is now consistent when using the Mac OS X RTAS Plugins.
  • 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.
  • libjack is now weak-linked for standalone Linux. This means JACK is not required (but still recommended).
  • Fixed slight pitch shifting timbre that would rarely occur when quickly swapping between presets using different delay time settings.
  • PDF manual is now printer-friendly.

String is available to purchase for £50 GBP (+VAT if applicable).

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.

Loomer releases Shift 2.0.0, granular pitch shifting delay

Loomer Shift

Loomer has announced version 2.0.0 of Shift, a diatonic granular pitch shifting delay effect for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Shift combines an intuitive and beautiful user interface, with a great sounding granular synthesis engine. Shift’s flexibility allows a palette of timbres ranging from basic echo effects, through intelligent harmonies, to exotic evolving ambient soundscapes.

Shift features

  • Five independent true stereo delay lines, with discrete delay, feedback, pitch shifting, filters, pan, and volume.
  • Pitch shifting comes courtesy of a powerful granular synthesis engine: with a few simple grain parameters, you can create the perfect granular sound, be it for guitar, synth, drums, loops, or anything else.
  • Fast and accurate monophonic audio analysis component extracts pitch information, in real-time, for intelligent in-scale pitch shifting and harmonies. Calibrate the tracker to your sound and style using the built-in tuner.
  • Perfect your preset design: use the XY grid to maneuver the seven main delay line parameters in real-time or to get at-a-glance feedback on the overall preset shape.
  • A comprehensive modulation matrix allows each delay voice parameter to be individual contoured. Modulation sources come in the form of four tempo-syncable LFOs, each producing five modulation shapes: sawtooth, sinus, triangle, square, or stepped random noise.
  • Over 100 presets included, from the simple to the exotic, each tagged ready for searching, and annotated with playing suggestions. Listen to a preset in context with ‘hot-swap previewing’. Create partial presets to build up a library of delay voices, grain engine, and diatonic tracker settings.

Shift is available to purchase for £45 GBP (+ VAT). Registered owners of Shift 1 are eligible for a free upgrade.

An evaluation is available for free download, with the following limitations:

  • User created Program and Bank configurations can be saved, but not loaded.
  • Output will be periodically interrupted, approximately every minute, by a short moment of silence.
  • Audio output will stop after 30 minutes of continuous use. The only way to continue using Shift is to restart the application.
