Future Audio Workshop has announced an update to its Circle² synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Version 2.2.1 includes a resizable interface, and VST3 and openGL support.

Usability is at the heart of the design of Circle². With the affordance of the power of modern computer processors, many software synthesizers have become progressively more complex and difficult to use.

The aim of Circle is to step aside from this path and to instead focus on placing flow and intuitiveness at the core of the music-making process. Rather than burying a deluge of synthesis parameters in submenus and external windows, Circle² encourages experimentation by presenting parameters in an accessible and intuitive manner.

Circle² is available in VST/VST, AU and AAX plugin formats from FAW and distributor Plugin Boutique for $129 USD.
