30th July 2012
Ross Bencina has updated AudioMulch, the creative software for live performance, audio processing, sound design and music composition, to version 2.2.
AudioMulch 2.2 delivers a solid line up of refinements targeted at live performance, including increased responsiveness and expanded MIDI control and routing capabilities. Additions include: lower audio latency, support for routing MIDI output to external devices, improved MIDI and network clock synchronization, and MIDI-controlled snapshot switching for AudioMulch's unique Metasurface control interface. A range of other enhancements and bug fixes are included.
This release also marks the launch of a new community patch sharing area at AudioMulch.com where AudioMulch users can share sound processing patches and compositions.
Performers processing live audio or playing virtual instrument plug-ins will benefit from the responsiveness of the overhauled low-latency sound processing engine. The engine now supports lower latency buffer settings with improved stability.
Musicians using AudioMulch in conjunction with MIDI synthesizers and outboard effects units can take advantage of extensions to AudioMulch's modular MIDI routing system. MIDI data can now be routed to external MIDI devices from sequencer and control generator plug-ins.
AudioMulch 2.2's new timing engine improves timing stability when chasing MIDI or network synchronization. A new "pattern mode" MIDI clock sync option provides compatibility with pattern-based hardware step sequencers.
Performers who control AudioMulch from a MIDI controller will welcome the ability to switch Metasurface parameter snapshots under MIDI control.
Mac users will appreciate AudioMulch 2.2's improved plug-in compatibility stemming from the switch to a Cocoa-based user interface framework. AudioMulch 2.2 is ready for OS X Mountain Lion today.
Other enhancements include:
- Unlimited contraption presets and improved preset workflow via a new streamlined header bar.
- Support for composing with musical pitch names when using frequency parameters usually expressed in Hertz.
- A versatile new stereo chorus contraption.
- A new Welcome Screen gives quick access to recent documents and common tasks.
- An updated help system with a clear, step-by-step tutorial format to bring users up to speed quickly.
