u-he has released a public beta AAX for Mac version of the Podolski freeware instrument, a simple, CPU-efficient virtual analog synthesizer.

Here’s the normal Podolski 1.2 installer plus our first incarnation of an AAX plug-in:


We believe this to work, and while we’re adding AAX development into our development workflow, we hope that the brave among you out there will give this a spin. Please report any crashes with a crash.log here, and – if possible – compare whether or not this version behaves and sounds the same as its VST/AU counterpart.

If all goes well we’ll need only a few days to port it to Windows, we’ll have to buy 3 more iLoks to add to our build and testing servers and we might get to release AAX betas for everything shortly therafter.

Make sure to give some feedback at the KVR forum if you get a chance to check the AAX beta.
