Subatomic Software Updates "Audulus" to v1.5
Audulus 1.5 has a refined UI
SAN FRANCISCO, July 16, 2012 - Subatomic Software has announced the release of Audulus 1.5, a major update for its modular synthesis app for OSX available on the Mac App Store.
"Your favorite software instruments can now run inside Audulus," explains W. Taylor Holliday, Founder of Subatomic Software. "Just like Audio Unit effects, Audio Unit instruments can now be processing nodes. This opens up new creative possibilities. Users can even run software instruments inside the plugin version of Audulus. Plugins in a plugin."
With Audulus, users can build synthesizers, design new sounds, or process audio. All with low latency, real-time processing suitable for live performance.
Audulus 1.5 has a refined UI. "We've improved the look and responsiveness of the UI," says Holliday. "Animation is smoother, it's easier to make connections, and nodes such as the Oscillator, ADSR, and Delay have new customized UI."
Version 1.5 also adds seven new example patches. "We want to provide enough examples so Audulus is approachable to modular synthesis newcomers," explains Holliday. "We've added new examples in every major release."
Audulus 1.5 adds three new processing nodes: reverb, 16-step sequencer, and sample-and-hold.
In addition, the file format has been changed for compatibility with the forthcoming iPad and 64-bit versions. Users should upgrade their patches by loading and re-saving them.
Audulus 1.5 Running as a Plug-in inside Logic
The Audulus user interface was inspired by analog guitar pedals: sounds are created or altered by connecting processing nodes. There are no hidden controls, no complex menus, and everything fits in a single window. The user begins with a blank canvas, rather than with daunting controls, and can build up to the desired level of complexity.
Audulus includes a diverse collection of processing nodes, with new nodes in constant development. Additionally, Audio Unit plugins can be hosted as processing nodes, greatly expanding the types of processing nodes at the user's disposal.
Audulus also integrates into a studio workflow through an Audio Unit plugin version, which is available for download at no extra cost.
New Features include:
- Added support for Audio Unit Software Instruments
- Added new audulus file format. (Users should update their patches to the new format.)
- Added 7 new examples
- Created circular Inputs and outputs to show their entire interaction region.
- Added New compact UI for the Osc node.
- Added Sample & Hold node.
- Added Reverb node.
- Improved Delay node: added mix and feedback knobs.
- Added Seq16, a 16-step sequencer node.
- Improved Filter node UI. Now shows cutoff frequency while dragging.
- Updated cutoff frequency response curve for better low-frequency accuracy. Hold shift while dragging to fine-tune the cutoff frequency.
- Now always show CPU load.
- Made bug fixes and performance improvements.
Audulus is available on the Mac App Store for $14.99
