Madrona Labs Aalto

Madrona Labs has released version 1.2.6 of Aalto, a virtual semi-modular synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Aalto’s sound engine lets you create sounds that have been difficult or impossible to make with softsynths before now. The heart of Aalto is a Buchla-inspired complex oscillator, with FM, timbre and waveshape controls that enable a wide range of expressive sounds. These sounds are uniquely malleable and alive, in part because they are made with dynamic calculation, not static wavetables.

Changes in Aalto v1.2.6

  • Improved performance.
  • Optimized patch loading.
  • Fixed Logic dropouts, improved Logic CPU spikes.
  • Fixed Live 7 UI hangs.
  • Fixed Sonar crash.
  • Fixed Maschine scan crash.
  • Fixed multislider parameter behavior.
  • Added debug diagnostics.
  • Smaller executable.

Aalto is available to purchase for $99 USD (Win VST & Mac VST/AU). The update is free for registered Aalto users.
