Amsterdam, The Netherlands (March 2, 2006)–FabFilter Software Instruments has released FabFilter Twin version 1.10, a major update to the FabFilter Twin synthesizer plug-in with many improvements and bug fixes. The update is free for existing FabFilter Twin users. For those who don’t have FabFilter Twin, version 1.10 grants a new evaluation period to be able to try the new features.
Fab Filter TwinOriginally released on December 21, 2005, FabFilter Twin is a synthesizer plug-in for Windows and Mac OS X. According to the company, FabFilter Twin stands out because of its high-quality oscillators, smooth and analog-sounding filters, and a drag-and-drop modulation system that makes complex sounds easy to design.
FabFilter Twin 1.10 is now available on www.fabfilter.com for $129 as a Windows VST-plugin and as an Audio Units plug-in and a VST plug-in for Mac OS X. Packages with FabFilter Volcano and One are also available. See www.fabfilter.com/shop/.
System requirements for FabFilter Twin are either Windows XP, 2000, 98, Me,
or 2003, SSE-capable processor, and a VST 2 host, or Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther)
or higher, G4 or better with AltiVec, and an Audio Units or VST 2 host.
New features included in Version 1.10 are:
– New optimizations that work well with unison voices. CPU usage has now been reduced by more than 50 percent when using a high number of unison voices.
– A floating parameter value display to the interface for all knobs.
– An optional filter display view, in which the filter curves can be dragged separately or together. Using Ctrl-click or Shift-click, slope and responses can be set directly in the filter display. Use the small toggle button in the lower-left corner of the filter area to toggle between the filter display view and the normal knobs view.
– Three new filter characteristics, especially designed for FabFilter Twin.
– Support for viewing modulation connections for a specific target, in addition to the existing possibility to show the connections for a specific modulation source. Connections for a source or target can now be shown by double-clicking a source icon or a target knob.
– Increased the maximum number of voices to 32 and the maximum unison frequency detune to 5 times the previous maximum, which makes unison sound much better when using a high number of unison voices.
– ASIO support to the Windows stand-alone version.
– Fixed some bugs concerning LFO sync, slots being marked as ‘invalid’ when this was not the case, license validation failing on the Receptor and problems with the ‘next/previous preset’ button when using the plug-in in Cubase.
