  • AU/VST support in FX section on OS X.
  • SYNC state of each Channel is now stored on exit of Quad and loaded back again when Quad restarts.
  • When SYNC button is off and the put on again, Quad “re-syncs” the Channel’s tempo.
  • When a USB-drive/stick is put into the USB-port while running Quad, the Browser will be updated so the drive is listed.
  • In THRU mode, the waveforms and cuepoints disappear.
  • Drag’n’drop from audio files into Quad2′s Channels is now possible from: Explorer (Windows), Finder & iTunes (Mac).
  • Pressing key U on keyboard in the Browser unmarks loaded files and files put into cases (press U twice for complete unmark).
  • Pressing F1/F2/F3/F4 activates/deactivates Cue2 for Channel 1/2/3/4.
  • In Search Box, using UP/DOWN/ENTER may be used to navigate through the songs without leaving Search Box.
  • Knobs are now greyed out when not used (when Filter X-Type is active, or EQ ISO-Type is active).
  • “Invert Phase” option for inverting Phono input phase for being able to use cartridges Shure M-44 and Stanton 500-II.
  • Various changes and fixes.

Quad 2.20 is available for Windows and Mac and costs 89 EUR.

Quad v2.0 features

  • Open architecture
    • Compatible with any soundcard (Windows: ASIO driver required).
    • Software RIAA Phono pre-amplification allows connecting turntables directly to Line Inputs on the soundcard.
    • Nearly every parameter is MIDI controllable.
    • Totally configurable audio routing.
    • Easy MIDI Learn.
    • Compatible with nearly all MIDI Controllers on the market (accepts CC & Note On/Off MIDI messages).
    • MIDI feedback for endless rotary MIDI controllers or motorized fader MIDI controllers.
    • Resizable and completely user-configurable GUI: Channels may be shown/hidden, EQ/Filter/asf. may be shown/hidden.
  • Total control
    • 1-4 decks may be used to control 1-4 tracks (MP3s/WAVs).
    • Custom Vinyl Tracking algorithm provides a near-analog scratch experience.
    • Perfect tempo-synchronization of up to 4 tracks using SYNC.
    • Powerful 1-deck support (one single turntable may be used to mix up to 4 tracks).
    • Virtual Zero Lock Range makes pitch 0 really 0 and virtually eliminates the “resting point” at pitch 0 on old turntables.
    • Recording the mix as .WAV during mixing is possible.
    • Keyboard shortcuts allow using Quad without touching the mouse.
    • Preview Player for fast pre-listening of tracks on Headphones.
  • Advanced sound processing
    • Fresh sounding filters (X-Filter, SVF).
    • 3-band Equalizers with parametric mids from 100Hz to 10kHz.
    • Tempo-matched FX (Flanger, Phaser, Echo, Delay, LFO Filter, …).
    • Tempo-matched Loop Samplers.
    • Any audio material (real Vinyl / CDs / Mic / …) may be routed from the soundcard’s inputs into Quad for mixing and FX-processing.
    • Crossfader with 3 curves.
    • Support for VST plugins (Windows only at the moment).
    • Look-ahead limiters on each ASIO output avoid audible audio distortions when signal becomes too hot.
  • Managing your tunes
    • New, improved browser.
    • ID3 Tags are editable.
    • Create cases of your favourite tunes and music styles.
    • 4 assignable Cue Points per track.

Schaak Audio releases Transient Shaper

Schaak Audio Transient Shaper

Schaak Audio has released Transient Shaper, a dynamic shaping plug-in.

Transient Shaper allows shaping the dynamics with 2 knobs only, making it uniquely easy and fast to use – yet its sonic manipulation scape ranges from gate-like to compressor-like.

  • Ideal for individual or summed drums/percussions shaping.
  • Unique two-knob manipulation characteristics, not obtainable with any other type of gear.

  • Processed sound ranges from gate-like to compression-like.
  • Resizable GUI (minimized by clicking in top left corner).
  • Low CPU Usage (typically less than 1% on half-decent systems).

Transient Shaper is available for Windows (Mac AU/VST coming soon) for 49 EUR.
