The main changes are a new VST Host, a New Mixer, much faster application start/plugin check, wave in machine, new render to wav dialog with dither and lots of other small additions. New tutorial songs which demonstrate some of these features are included.

Changes in v1.8.5

  • Finished the reimplementation of the VSTHost (Internal and UI).
  • Extended and finished the Mixer machine. 12 inserts, 12 sends/returns, with routing abilities.
  • Improved Sampulse partially, can load instruments and be used in a song (still incomplete).
  • Improvements in the new Interpolate Curve Dialog.
  • Changes in the Sequencer toolbar. Now it can show names of patterns and change them.
  • Improvements in source code (partially from 1.9 alpha).
  • Several new native plugins (most developed during the 1.9 alpha period). The total number is now 70.
  • Wave In machine that allows input from external sources. Only works with directsound and ASIO for now.
  • Sinc interpolation for sampler. Should offer better quality, but it’s quite much slower.
  • Record to clipboard added to Record to Wave dialog box. (Works only with psycle for now).
  • Blocks in patterns can be moved by dragging them, as well as via popup menu.
  • Volume, panning and portamento commands for VST’s (volume does channel aftertouch for now).
  • Yannis midi native plugin nearly usable now (doesn’t sync too well if used in a pattern).
  • Fixes in several native plugins ( arguru synth, ayeternal delay, …).
  • Bugfixes and other smaller additions.

Arguru Software sets Aodix v4 free

Last month Arguru (Juan Antonio Argüelles Rius) had confirmed that Aodix, a tickless tracker-interface based sequencer and VST2 host with ASIO2 support, would soon become free. Arguru did not plan to continue support for Aodix because his work at Image-Line took up most of his time.

Sadly, Arguru passed away in a car accident on June 3rd. The talented and well respected plug-in developer made fame in the early days of the tracker scene. His work includes Psycle, Renoise, discoDSP plug-ins and various Image-Line products (Fl Studio 7, DirectWave, Deckadance…)

Keeping true to Arguru’s plans, Zaf (Aguru’s partner in Arguru Software) has now released Aodix v4.2.0.1 for free.

Arguru Aodix v4

Features

  • Full modular audio and MIDI routing
  • 256 tracks, 256 patterns
  • pattern markers and pattern calls, patterns being of virtually unlimited length
  • 32-bit float sample precision
  • Up to 960 PPQN (Pulses Per Quarter-Note) timestamp precision
  • real-time record and automation
  • piano-roll track split view
  • real-time performance with very low latencies

Support for Aodix will only be available for registered users.
