Future Audio Workshop has launched an update for its Circle² software synthesizer instrument. Version 2.1.3 includes sample-accurate modulation, crisper fonts and various bug fixes.

Circle² now runs smoothly with FL Studio 20 on both macOS and Windows. We’ve also overhauled the font rendering for crisper text and improved legibility.

On the audio front, all modulations are now sample-accurate with your DAW timeline, meaning perfectly timed modulation that never misses a beat when you render out your tracks.

Changes in Circle² v2.1.3

  • Implemented new host timeline sync for modulations. This is enabled by turning on “host timeline sync” on the bottom bar “settings” page.
  • Fixed random crash in Live 10.
  • Defaults to “My Sounds” bank when saving a new preset.
  • Fixed automation not being recorded in Live and Pro Tools.
  • Fixed issue with host buffer sizes not being multiples of 32 causing crackles ( found in FL Studio 20 ).
  • Increased font size on preset display and other interface tweaks. Fonts now render crisper on macOS and Windows.
  • Fixed crash when sometimes adjusting the delay time in the bottom panel.
  • Fixed issue with a pitched hum coming from the noise channel of the mixer, this was apparent when the noise module was off, but the mixer channel volume for the noise was not set to zero.
  • Fixed timing display of arpeggiator, in previous versions the readout was incorrect when displaying BPM synced rates (eg. “2xbpm” was in reality “4xbpm” etc).
  • Fixed load error in Pro Tools 2018.

The update is now available to Circle² owners. New users can try the demo version or purchase a license for 99 EUR / $129 USD at FAW and distributor Plugin Boutique.

Circle² for Windows and Mac supports VST, AU and AAX plugin formats and also runs as a standalone software.
