SynC Modular's future development has been officially "cancelled", except for bugfixes. It seems Dr Sync has got a job with Native Instruments and will be developing with them in the future. Read the full announcement HERE.
Version 2.0 of "VSTi Host" is now available. VSTi Host is a Mac application that allows VSTi's to be used as standalone synths. [Mac Host]
Muon Software are running a special promotion for tonight only, buy the Muon Electron for only $50 (£30) and if at least 50 people make a purchase before midnight they all get the Atom Pro thrown in for free (Usually $30 on its own!). Be quick though it's only on for another couple of hours!
This is part of a warez experiment, check out this post on the forum which explains the idea....
A0 DK1 has been given a bit of a makeover for v1.2, due out today. It's currently the most popular Drum Sampler available according to its current standing in our user ratings section so if you haven't tried it yet maybe its time to give the demo a go. [PC]
All the known pitch bend issues for samples spanned over multiple keys are solved
Restricted polyphony to 127 voices, because voice 128 is always used to preview samples in the file selection box (CTRL+Click)
Pad numeration in the swap and copy dialogue is now correct
The pad lighted with a short delay (<10ms) when clicking on it
MIDI Notes in the editor can now be entered by name (e.g. C3,A#4...)
We've introduced a user rating and reviewing system for the VSTi's. Each VSTi's page will now display an average rating, out of 5, compiled from users votes.
You can also add a review/comment, I'll try to keep an eye on these and delete anything that's just wasting space!
There is a full listing of all VSTi's and their user rating HERE. It's sorted by highest average first.
Note: The rating you give with your review is not included in the average totals, so if you review a VSTi you must actually rate the VSTi in the ratings section as well as in the review section.
