Development of Camel Audio's Cameleon 5000 continues with the release of version 1.5. Cameleon 1.5 can be run as a standalone application, provides RTAS support for ProTools users, and boasts a substantially revised manual, including new tutorials and tips. All this, plus a whole range of smaller improvements and optimisations. The upgrade is free to all registered users.
Cameleon's PDF-format manual is now also available on paper. The official, professionally-bound, 90-page manual can be bought for $24.95/€19.95/£12.95. Cameleon itself (usually sold as a download) can also be ordered on CD, for an extra $10.95.
In addition, Camel Audio recently announced an educational discount of 50% for all students and staff -- details are available on the Camel Audio online shop.
More and more free preset banks are being added to the Camel Audio website every month, adding to a free sound library currently numbering over 1500 patches, and covering a wide variety of styles.
The first of a new set of commercial sound packs has also been released, courtesy of top sound designer Tim Conrardy. These are priced at $24.95/€19.95/£12.95, with free MP3 demos and example patches available online.
In other Cameleon 5000 news, a free program called MorphMaker has been released by Cameleon enthusiast Glen Berry, which allows users to create even the most complex Cameleon morph timeline patterns with a minimum of effort. MorphMaker 1.1 even features a step sequencer, opening the door to all kinds of outlandish wave-sequencing experiments.
Camel Audio are running an exciting competition until the end of the year, and the rules couldn't be simpler. Tell them the name of your three favourite Cameleon presets in the latest demo version, and you could win your own copy.
