Cycling '74 today announced Pluggo 3.1—a new version of its native audio processing plug-in software—that is compatible with Mac OS X and adds Audio Units to the list of supported plug-in formats. The new software is expected to ship in mid-November.
The introduction of Audio Units to the existing VST and RTAS support allows Pluggo to work with Emagic Logic Audio, MOTU Digital Performer 4, and Apple Final Cut Pro and Soundtrack. Pluggo 3.1 is also compatible with multiple processors.
Pluggo offers more than 100 creative and unusual real-time audio effects and includes the Essential Instruments collection, a set of elegant and immediately effective synthesizers and samplers. In addition, users can create their own custom plug-ins using Max/MSP; support for effects automation, parameter management, presets, host synchronization and undo is provided in the development environment. Pluggo effects include filtering, delay effects, distortion, granular synthesis, audio routing, sampling and synthesis, reverb and sound localization. In addition, Pluggo offers modulation, synchronization, and audio and control routing capabilities between plug-ins.
