Burbank, CA (February 23, 2007)–Spectrasonics has officially released the Apple Intel-Mac compatible Universal Binary version of its Stylus RMX – Realtime Groove Module. The new version 1.6 of Stylus RMX is a free downloadable compatibility update and is recommended for Intel-Mac users only.
This update supports all Mac OS X Universal Binary Audio Unit, VST and RTAS hosts–including Logic Pro 7.2, Digital Performer 5.1, Cubase 4, Garageband 3, Ableton Live 6, Digidesign Pro Tools 7.1.1 and others. Stylus RMX is a groove-based virtual instrument plug-in that combines the power of Groove Control with Spectrasonics’ Advanced Groove Engine (S.A.G.E.) technology.
Spectrasonics was one of the first plug-in companies to support the new Universal Binary format with a public beta of Stylus RMX in early 2006. The official Stylus RMX version 1.6 can now be downloaded at www.spectrasonics.net/updates/index.php.
All of the Spectrasonics SAGE Xpanders for Stylus RMX are also fully compatible with the new version 1.6 and Intel-Macs including Backbeat, Retro Funk, Liquid Grooves, Metamorphosis, and Burning Grooves. Ilio’s SAGE Xpanders are also compatible: Stark Raving Beats, Ethno Techno, Skippy’s Noizbox, and Skippy’s Big Bad Beats.
Spectrasonics president, Eric Persing, talked about the release, “The transition to Intel-Mac Universal Binary plug-ins is an important one for our customers. The new UB version of Stylus RMX shows our commitment to supporting our customers’ needs, as we will continue to do in the future with our whole line of virtual instruments. We especially appreciate all the feedback we got from early adopters of the Intel-Mac during the public beta period of Stylus RMX.”
The company has also posted an Intel-Mac information webpage at: www.spectrasonics.net/news/intel_mac-spectrasonics.html.
