Patchworks updates Conductr controller app to v1.2

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Patchworks has released version 1.2 of the Conductr Ableton Live controller app for iPad app, featuring a new 4-dimensional XY pad.

Conductr with XY-4D pad

After its successful transition to a freemium model last June, Conductr takes a step further and launches a long awaited feature: the XY-4D pad.

Many Conductr users have been asking for an XY pad for months. But the Conductr developers didn’t want to release a XY just like any other. So they took their time to create the Conductr XY-4D pad.

A Conductr XY-4D pad can be created just like a User Module, and can contain 4 fx units. Each unit allows you to control up to 4 parameters: one horizontally (X), one vertically (Y), one by pinching (Z) and one on/off parameter when tapping (K). So you can control up to 16 parameters in a single module, and even have up to 64 parameters at your fingertips in the Playground with the 4 user modules view mode.

Last but not least: each XY-4D unit has a reset and a freeze mode. You can go as crazy as you want and never get lost.

Changes in Conductr v1.2

  • New: 4-dimensional XY pad:
    • Each XY-4D pad can contain up to 4 fx units.
    • Control up to 4 parameters in a single fx unit: one horizontally (X), one vertically (Y), one by pinching (Z) and one on/off parameter by tapping (K).
    • Each fx unit has a reset and a freeze mode.
    • Control 16 parameters in a single XY-4D pad.
    • Control up to 64 parameters with the Playground’s 4 User Modules view mode.
  • Bug fixes and improvements.

From now on, the Conductr free basic version will include one XY-4D fx unit. Users can purchase the Premium User Modules to get unlimited User Modules featuring a complete XY-4D pad on each module.

TC Electronic intros System 6000 Integrator plugin

Related: , , Posted in news on Aug 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

TC Electronic has launched System 6000 Integrator, a new audio & video software integration plug-in.

TC Electronic System 6000 Integrator

Today, virtually all music, film and post production is rooted in DAWs such as Pro Tools, Audition, Nuendo and Logic Pro or NLEs such as Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro and Media Composer. As DAW components change in three year cycles, many professionals use System 6000 to ensure their most precious audio effects. Before, this was a challenge when managing projects; and typically involved MIDI or custom solutions to synchronize data.

Now TC Electronic launches a complete integration solution for its System 6000. The System 6000 Integrator plug-in allows users to save and reload the complete settings of their System 6000 as part of virtually any DAW or NLE project just by using the ethernet connection which is already there.

Through standard automation it is also possible to automate preset changes during playback, which means that users are able to get more out of the four processing engines of System 6000 than ever before. For instance, one engine may apply subtle 8 channel reverb in one scene and extraordinary DXP dynamics processing or UnWrap HD in the next.

“We are very excited that users are now able to integrate their System 6000 with their DAWs and NLEs,” says TC Electronic’s Thomas Valter, VP of Business Management, Broadcast & Production. “What may seem like a minor and simple addition to the System 6000 platform is in fact a game-changing move that adds a whole new dimension to System 6000.”

Based on the Ethernet protocol, multiple System 6000s may be detected and used on the same network, allowing users to take advantage of powerful communication lines between their DAW/NLE and one or more System 6000 mainframes/TC Icon remote hardware or software.

The System 6000 Integrator supports the AAX, RTAS, VST and Audio Unit formats, covering all major DAWs and NLEs. To use the plug-in, users will need an iLok account, but they can choose whether they want to store the plug-in license on an iLok USB key or directly on their computer.

System 6000 Integrator is available for the introductory price of $299 USD until September 1st, 2014 (regular $499 USD). TC Electronic is also offering a free 14-day trial for all System 6000 users.
