Loomer has released version 1.5.0 of Manifold and Resound, two effect plug-ins for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
Manifold is a software audio effect processor that enhances an audio signal, producing a fuller, livelier, bigger sound. Input signals are split into as many as 20 individual voices, each of which are detuned, placed around the stereo panorama, and recombined with stunning results. Flexible controls mean Manifold is capable of producing a wide range of effects; from subtle modulations that add interest to lifeless sounds, to extreme detuning that fattens the weakest of input sources.
Resound is a software audio delay effect processor that emulates the sound and operation of vintage magnetic-tape echo units. Whilst not a direct copy of any one particular model, it takes features from several of the classic delay devices, and unites them into a convincing and pleasingly retro sounding effect.
Changes in Manifold / Resound v1.5.0
- Native 64-bit support for Linux VST plugins and Standalone applications.
- Integrated Preset Browser, with meta-data, tags, searching, and hot-swap support.
- (Resound) Noise parameter is now scaled such that wow, flutter, and mechanical noise of the tape machine are completely absent at 0%. Older presets will still sound identical.
- (Resound) Reversed delay tempo syncing has been improved with hosts that don’t provide accurate PPQ.
- Reduced CPU usage.
- Windows VST 32-bit plugins and standalone applications no longer depend on additional runtime libraries. However, these libraries are still required – and installed – for the RTAS format plugins.
- Various host compatibility fixes.
- Additional presets.
Manifold and Resound are available to purchase for £35 GBP + VAT each.
