Image-Line Groove Machine

Image-Line has updated Groove Machine, a virtual groove box instrument for Windows and Mac.

Changes in Groove Machine v1.0.1

  • CPU optimizations for low-latency audio.
  • Fixed stutter crash that occurred in some cases.
  • Fixed stutter freezes that occurred in some cases.
  • Sample loading now remembers recent folder and opens from there.
  • AIFF format waves now load.
  • Graphical glitch when opening the note editor fixed.
  • Note: Ctrl button not being captured under OSX (fix scheduled soon for 1.0.2).

Groove Machine for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD until November 2, 2011 (regular price $149 USD).

New Image-Line customers can get an additional 10% off their first order at the Image-Line online shop here.
