Loomer has released version 1.7.0 of Aspect, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Changes in Aspect v1.7.0

  • Native 64-bit VST and Standalone application versions for Linux.
  • Integrated undo and redo, with unlimited history size.
  • Mono legato modes, with selectable low, high, and last note priority.
  • Mono unison: stack up to five unison voices in mono legato mode.
  • Independent trigger mode for each envelope: retrigger, reset, or legato.
  • Category support in preset browser.
  • Increased filter cutoff modulation range.
  • CPU usage is now consistent when using the Mac OS X RTAS plug-ins.
  • Windows VST 32-bit plug-ins and standalone applications no longer depend on additional runtime libraries. However, these libraries are still required – and installed – for the RTAS format plug-ins.
  • libjack is now weak-linked for standalone Linux. This means JACK is not required (but still recommended) for Linux users.
  • Windows RTAS plug-in is now installed to the correct location on 64-bit Windows operating systems.
  • MIDI Program Changes are now multi-threaded, and so will no longer potentially stall the audio synthesis.
  • Fix for rare issue that stopped presets from loading in Linux Renoise when LADSPA plug-in support is enabled.
  • Factory presets now load significantly faster.
  • Additional presets.
  • Various host compatibility fixes.

Aspect is available to purchase for £65 GBP + VAT.
