Sensomusic has released version 5.70 of Usine, which contains many major improvements.
A new product called Usine Stage has been created. See Products comparison. Usine Stage is a reduced version of Usine Pro for advanced users. Some features are absent (like VST exportation, sequencer) and the number of tracks is a little bit limited but Usine Stage is a good starting point to experience all the power of this software.
- 8 tracks and 8 patches per track.
- 8 audio in/out.
- 8 MIDI in/out.
- OSC, sub patches edition.

Now you have the capability to define a track as a master. All the tracks will be routed to this track input, you can then easily add master effects that will be accordingly applied to all actives patches. Also up to 4 master tracks can be active at the same time (4 in Usine Pro, 2 in Usine Stage).

With this version you can export your workspace into a stand alone application or a VST (a DLL), so you can share a redistributable and royalty-free package of your creations.
