Sonic Charge Bitspeek

Sonic Charge has updated Bitspeek, a real-time pitch-excited linear prediction codec effect for Windows and Mac.

We have just uploaded a minor but important upgrade to Bitspeek. It is minor because it brings no new features to the table, but it is important because:

1) It is our first venture into the great wild yonder of 64-bit.

2) It makes Bitspeek compatible with a bunch of hosts that will not play nicely, or not at all with monophonic plug-ins, e.g. GarageBand and Sonar.

To clarify the latter point, Bitspeek 1.0.2 still runs monaural processing under the hood but it is configured for stereo I/O and will simply mix the two input channels and produce identical output for left and right channels. This is an unfortunate necessity in order to improve compatibility.

There is also a slight name change on the Windows DLL from BitspeekVST.dll to Bitspeek.dll.

We have made thorough tests with all major hosts to assure that these changes will not cause any problems when you upgrade, but there are some minor exceptions. Notably, in Reaper you will need to reconfigure the plug-in outputs if you open projects created with Bitspeek 1.0, and in FL Studio you will need to replace the plug-in due to the .dll name change.

Bitspeek for PC and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $29 USD (+ VAT). The update is a free download for current users.
