Manifold 1.6.0 and Resound 1.6.0 for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux are now available. Download the updated versions here.

Manifold
Manifold is a software audio effect processor that enhances an audio signal, producing a fuller, livelier, bigger sound. Input signals are split into as many as 20 individual voices, each of which are detuned, placed around the stereo panorama, and recombined with stunning results. Flexible controls mean Manifold is capable of producing a wide range of effects; from subtle modulations that add interest to lifeless sounds, to extreme detuning that fattens the weakest of input sources.

Resound
Resound is a software audio delay effect processor that emulates the sound and operation of vintage magnetic-tape echo units. Whilst not a direct copy of any one particular model, it takes features from several of the classic delay devices, and unites them into a convincing and pleasingly retro sounding effect.

Fixes and features in these release are as follows:
  • Native 64-bit VST plug-in for Mac OS X (64-bit VST support requires Mac OS X 10.6 or greater; 64-bit Audio Unit requires Mac OS X 10.5 or greater; all other formats require Mac OS X 10.4 or greater. )
  • Integrated undo and redo, with unlimited history size.
  • [Resound] Split mechanical tape emulation controls into separate Noise and Flutter parameters.
  • Category support in preset browser.
  • MIDI Program Changes are now multi-threaded, and so will no longer potentially stall the audio synthesis.
  • Fix for GUI freeze that could occur in certain Mac OS X VST hosts.
  • Slightly reduced CPU usage and removed potential audio thread stall that could rarely occur when editing parameters.
  • Windows RTAS plug-in is now installed to the correct location on 64-bit Windows operating systems.
  • Fix for rare issue that stopped presets from loading in Linux Renoise when LADSPA plug-in support is enabled.
  • Fix for issue that could cause some presets to be instantly marked as changed after opening them in Pro Tools or Maschine on Mac OS X.
  • Factory presets now load significantly faster.
  • Fix for crash (on both Windows and Linux) that could occur when 'space' is pressed when confirming the overwrite preset dialog.
  • For Windows VST (32-bit and 64-bit), the preferences file can be placed alongside the DLL file to facilitate USB or portable installs.
  • Preset meta data (ie, author name, notes, tags) is now correctly displayed after loading an .FXP based preset or restoring a saved project.
  • VU meters now automatically reset their overload status after a few seconds.
  • Various host compatibility fixes.
  • PDF manual is now printer-friendly.
Thanks!

Manifold and Resound for Mac OS X have been updated to 1.6.1. These releases add a fix for an issue that causes the preset browser to become invisible when either Audio Unit plug-in is hosted by Digital Performer.

This is due to an incompatibility with Digital Performer's Carbon Audio Unit UI implementation. In these release, to force Digital Performer to use the plug-in's Cocoa Audio Unit UI :
  • Open the corresponding configuration file, ~/Library/Preferences/Loomer/Resound.xml or ~/Library/Preferences/Loomer/Manifold.xml .
  • Add the following line to the file: <value name="CarbonAUInterface" val="0">
  • Save and close the configuration file.
All new instances of the Audio Unit plug-in will hide the legacy Carbon UI, forcing Digital Performer to use the more compatibile Cocoa UI.

Download Manifold and Resound 1.6.1 for Mac OS X here.

Manifold and Resound for Windows have just been updated to version 1.6.3, with a few minor (and one potentially major) fixes :
  • Fixed crash which could occur rarely (although repeatedly) on certain systems when starting up the 32-bit standalone application, or when particular hosts first scan the 32-bit VST plug-in.
  • Removed C++ runtime libraries redistributable requirement for RTAS plug-ins. The installers also no longer install the C++ runtime library redistributable components when installing the RTAS plug-ins.
  • Clearer font rendering on preset browser.
  • Various minor host compatibility tweaks.
Download the updates here.

(If you're not being troubled by the plug-in scan crash, which is likely: I think so far it's only affected a single user, I wouldn't feel obliged to upgrade if your DAW environment is stable running the previous 1.6 releases.)
