Satin goes NKS FX

May 31, 2018

Along with numerous minor bugfixes and improvements, Satin now comes with NKS compatibility and our new preset browser, which includes preset tagging and powerful search functions. We've also worked hard on the UHX compander subsystem so that the original behaviour is more faithfully reproduced. Alas, this meant adding a legacy button for the sake of backwards compatibility, but we're sure it was worth it.

This is a free update for existing users of Satin - simply download and install!

Hotfixes for Diva and Zebra2 now available

May 31, 2018

Typical! After releasing the new versions we immediately found some minor annoyances that needed to be fixed pronto…

For the Mac version of Diva 1.4.3 as well as Zebra 2.8 (rev 7422) we fixed the cause of a crash due to missing write permissions as well as another that happened if a symbolic link pointed to an external drive. This hotfix also solves a few preset browser problems (in all platforms) that arise while creating or duplicating folders.

This free update is recommended for all users of Diva and Zebra2 - simply download and install!


New Bazille soundset Vectors by Aiyn Zahev

May 31, 2018

We proudly present 60 new action-packed presets that transcend EDM: Pulsing arpeggios, glassy cityscapes, yearning synth leads and dark, grimy basses - all driven via modulation wheel, aftertouch and breath (MIDI CC 2). Vectors will have you racing along gleaming futuristic highways, accompanied by breathtaking vistas of high-tech cyberpunk cities that hide their dark side behind a veneer of neon lights…

Our New Newsletter

May 31, 2018

Like so many companies, we took part in the grand GDPR clean-up and asked our newsletter subscribers to re-subscribe to our newsletter, this time not only asking for double opt-in but also explaining purpose and storage - all wrapped nicely into a slightly more complicated-but-compliant signup form.

About a quarter of our subscribers came back so far. So of you missed it and you're among those 75% we have lost and you wonder why you don't get any newsletter from us anymore, this is it - and it's easily fixed!

That said, we'll continue with our newsletter just like we did, which we think is a good balance between nice information and marketing.
