Sugar Bytes updates Turnado to v1.5 incl. AAX + Limited Time Deal

Sugar Bytes has announced version 1.5 of its Turnado multi-effect audio manipulation plugin, in collaboration with beat-boxer and vocalist Beardyman, who requested lots of useful improvements and features.

Sugar Bytes Turnado
Sugar Bytes celebrates the Turnado update with a limited time promotion.

Beardyman about the update:

“There is quite simply nothing like Turnado on the market, so when it came to developing a multi-effects solution for the ground-breakingly complex live-looping system I’ve just finished building for my live shows, I was relieved to discover that Turnado was exactly what I needed to produce music live, in real time. Turnado’s control methodology and super low CPU overhead make it the only viable solution, and luckily it sounds amazing! Preset changes happen in under 2 ms, meaning one instance of Turnado can provide a world of options. However, there were many small, subtle but important changes I needed to be made to Turnado, and fortunately the guys at Sugar Bytes were eager to enhance Turnado with my suggestions and fulfilled and elaborated on many of the features I requested. Features have been added, existing features have been extended or enhanced and there have been some and extra modes implemented deep within the engine which all make Turnado my all-round desert-island multi-effect.

The Tonalizers can now snap to a variety of scales, and keys, quantisation parameters have been extended, the knobs can now send midi to enable Turnado-style automation-lane based morphing of any plugin in your DAW, LFO’s can now be made to snap rigidly to the host’s alignment, extra rhythmic subdivisions have been added to loopers and the stutter module, new delay and reverb modes have been added to enhance their usability and new sync options have been optimised in the form of extra modes.

As a true Turnado power-user, I can safely say that version 1.5 is a notable leap forward for an already world-beating plugin. If you don’t have it in your arsenal then I’m guessing you simply don’t own a computer.

So, in return for their invaluable input in helping me build my dream live rig, I’ve agreed to share some of my precious presets with you, you lucky human!”

Changes in Turnado v1.5

  • AAX Support for ProTools.
  • Gain control.
  • New filter modes for Pitch Delay.
  • New ‘Beardyman’ Filterpattern mode.
  • New Filterpattern Sweep Range option.
  • New Pitch Delay input options.
  • Multi Mode Filter added to Reverb.
  • New LFO Speed Multiplier.
  • New LFO host sync option.
  • Tonalizer scales added.
  • Tonalizer rootnote option added.
  • New Guitar amp limiter.
  • Pan modes in Spectralizer.
  • New Sync options for several FX.
  • MIDI out option.

Turnado for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to purchase for only 99 EUR/$119 USD until July 31st, 2012 (regular 139 EUR/$179 USD).

Circular Labs releases Mobius 2.0

Jeff Larson Mobius

Circular Labs has updated the Mobius programmable looper software for Windows and Mac to version 2.0.

The focus of this release was a redesign of the synchronization engine, support for sample rates other than 44,100 and support for Audio Unit host sync.

Many, many architectural changes were made but few of these will be visible to most users. If you have been using Mobius, this will be one of the more complicated upgrades. Parameters related to synchronization will not be upgraded automatically, you will need to redesign your sync settings as track setups rather than presets. This is discussed in the release notes.

Changes in Mobius v2.0

  • Redesigned synchronization engine for improved sync.
  • Support for Audio Units host sync (Logic, Garageband).
  • Support for other sample rates besides 44100.
  • Redesigned UI button window that works like other binding windows.
  • Improved OSC support.

Mobius for Windows and Mac (Standalone/VST/AU) is available to download as freeware.
