Kilohearts has announced an update to its software, including exciting new features, a few improvements and a handful of bug fixes.

With this update the Snap Heap and Multipass hosts are now also available as Snapins.

This makes it possible to design very complex nested effects structures as well as essentially allowing you to build your own self-contained multiband, parallel or serial effects chains. All macros in the Snapins are made available for modulation by the host.

Kilohearts Phase Plant 1.8

This update includes many things but we’re most excited about the ability to load Multipass and Snap Heap as snapins in any host, the overhauled browsing system with search, favorites and multiple user folders for presets as well as samples, wavetables, and LFOs in Phase Plant. Yep, you can save and load LFOs now. We’ve also updated the LFO editing tool… and more!

The preset browsing system has been updated with search, favorites, multiple user folders and an improved save dialogue. Preset browsing has been updated in all snapins and effects plugins as well as the hosts.

Kilohearts has updated Phase Plant‘s sample and wavetable browsing to use the new system, with the same options to search, save and tag favorites. The LFO editor has been improved and the ability to load and save LFO shapes has been added. The Filter and Distortion generator and effects modules now have better visualization and extra options.

Furthermore, another 80+ factory presets from various artists have been added to Phase Plant. Search for “#new” in the preset browser to find them all.

Users can update to v1.8 by simply running the Kilohearts installer and clicking ‘update’. To ensure that everyone has an opportunity to try out the latest updates, Kilohearts has set up a ‘trial amnesty’ and has reset all expired trial periods.
