WaveDNA has released version 1.3.1 of Liquid Rhythm and Liquid Rhythm Intro, the MIDI sequencer and beat creation software for Windows and Mac.
We haven’t had an update to Liquid Rhythm in a while. Our release cycles are generally short, but the winter season has been very busy for us. Christmas was fun, NAMM was exciting, the snow… My goodness, so much snow. We’re finally releasing an update to our last major release.
It contains many bugfixes, a few enhancements to features, and most notably, the ability to control Liquid Rhythm using the Novation Launchpad S through the MaxForLive Clips Mode via Ableton Live.
We’ve had Launchpad support for standalone, and now we have support for Ableton Live users with the MaxForLive Clip mode for Liquid Rhythm. We’re also working on bringing MIDI scripting support to Ableton’s Push controller. This release features a beta version of that implementation – it’s a lot of fun! (Though we’re still ironing out the kinks.)
Details on what’s new in version 1.3.1 can be found here.
Liquid Rhythm is available to purchase for $129 USD/$49 USD (Intro).

Expert Sleepers has released version 2.4.0 of its Silent Way suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesisers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system.
Silent Way Step LFO 2.4.0 now includes manual DAC.
The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound – rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs etc. of an analogue system.
Also, with the addition of the CV Input plug-in, it is possible to bring CVs from the synth into the computer, for recording or processing.
Changes in Silent Way v2.4.0
- Added new Run modes and a periodic reset feature to Silent Way Sync.
- Added virtual MIDI input ports to Silent Way ES-4 Controller and ES-5 Controller.
- Added ‘Manual DAC’ feature to Silent Way Step LFO.
- The Audio Unit version now implements Apple’s newer Audio Component API, allowing usage in modern (post-OS X 10.6) hosts that do not support the older Component Manager API.
- Updated Silent Way Soundplane’s OSC support for the new t3d format in the Soundplane Client v1.0 and above.
Silent Way for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $59 (USD, plus VAT if applicable).
