Rob Papen has updated BLUE to v1.6.3 and released the first 3rd party soundset for BLUE, by Rsmus7 and TC (Tim Conrardy).
Changes in v1.6.3:
- 128 new presets: 3 new preset banks have been added: "Analog Bass 04", "Digital Bass 04" and a new "Pads 04" bank. The new "Pads 04" bank is recommended for movie work.
- Tempo changes while using BLUE FX (Delays): Added a kind of smoothing to avoid "crackles" if you use tempo changes in your sequencer and use one of the BLUE delay FX. You will still hear (with big abrupt changes) a kind of pitch glide like traditional hardware delays do (that is hard to avoid because the time of the delay changes).
- French manual added.
- Minor bugs fixed.
3rd party soundset released
The first 3rd party soundset collection for BLUE, made by Rsmus7 and TC (Tim Conrardy) is also now available. This soundset holds 256 presets (8 banks) with the focus on ambient sounds of which TC (Tim Conrardy) and Rsmus7 are well-known for. Rsmus7 also added edgy arpeggiator, sequence, fx and synth sounds.
The soundset costs €25 / $25; a demo bank is available.
