Flux has announced that they are starting to release the AAX (Native & DSP) and 64-bit compatible versions of their software, built on their latest 64-bit version 3 framework, hereafter called v3. First out is the free BitterSweet v3 Transient Designer, and the Elixir v3 True Peak Limiter.
They are aiming to have all their software ported and available within Q1 this year.
The v3 framework improves the performance dramatically (measured 500-1000 percent improvement for Elixir depending on host environment) and for the graphic rendering the v3 framework includes their GPU-efficient 2D/3D graphic engine, first introduced in the Pure Analyzer System, based on the OpenGL standard optimizing the audio-to-visual experience utilizing the GPU on the computer's built in graphics card.
The update to the 64-bit compatible and to the AAX Native version (AU/VST/AAX Native) is free of charge for all current owners of Elixir, and can be downloaded when logged in to the customer download area on their website. If you're not using Elixir yet, a dongle free trial version is available.
