Rax AudioUnit Host Updated to Version 1.1
August 17, 2004
Granted Software announced the immediate availability of Rax 1.1 for Mac OS X, which is a free update for registered users.
Rax turns your Mac into a virtual rig for live performance, slaving instruments and effects from another app or offloading DSP to a second computer. One-touch record lets you capture a great riff without delay.
Rax comes with many features such as support for multiple synths per rack, flexible effect routing including insert, send and master effects, a 16 channel mixer, and support for live audio inputs.
MIDI features include layering , keyboard and velocity splits, multiple inputs, host based MIDI learn for AudioUnit controls and external MIDI clock sync.
New features in version 1.1 include MIDI control of the Rax mixer, 24 bit audio recording and native sample rate recording. 1.1 also includes the following bug fixes (among others):
- Fixed sample rate handling. Sample rate changes now need to be done in Audio MIDI Setup.
- Fixed multi-channel handling. All available audio channels should now be usable.
The product is available as a download directly from Granted Software for USD $29.95. Until a license is purchased users are limited to a single instrument and audio input per rack and recording is disabled.
