Updates and Upgrades

  • Native Instruments has released B4 II 2.0.3, an update to its popular tonewheel organ software instrument. The new version, which is for both Windows and Mac OS X, adds Universal Binary support for owners of Intel-based Macintosh computers. The update is now available as a free download for all registered users of B4 II on the NI website. For installation on a Intel-based Macintosh computer, a Universal Binary license code can be purchased for $29 in the NI Online Shop, however Intel-Mac customers who registered B4 II after September 12th, 2006, are eligible for a free Universal Binary license code.
  • Arturia has released version 2.2 of its popular Moog Modular V virtual instrument. This update is free to all registered users and does not require the previous Moog Modular V updates to be installed on your computer. Arturia notes that this update is not compatible with the demo version. The update adds Universal Binary support and is also VST 2.4/Cubase 4 ready. Version 2.2 does include a new installer, regrouping all previous updates. To install, you will need to insert the original installation CD into your CD-ROM drive. The update does not automatically replace every instance of the VST plug-in installed on your computer so you should check (and if required, update manually) the VST plug-ins directory associated with your host applications (PC only).
  • Native Instruments has released TRAKTOR Beatport Player, a unique MP3 and Audio-CD Player that lets you interact with your music. The player is based on the company’s award-winning TRAKTOR DJ STUDIO and features two decks with waveform displays, pitch control and a crossfader. The best part? It can be downloaded completely free of charge! Features include Dual Multi-Band Waveform Displays, DJ Style Audio Scrubbing, Pitch Control, Automatic Tempo Detection and much more. Supported Audio and File Formats: MP3, AAC, WMA, AIFF, FLAC, OGG and CDs.
  • M-Audio has announced that Torq 1.02 (included with the Conectiv audio interface) is now available on the M-Audio website for immediate download. This is the first update to the award-winning DJ software and is meant to enhance both the features and performance of Torq. For example, it fixes all pops and clicks in Torq’s outputs. Database performance is now significantly improved and M-Audio increased the audio buffer for the Master Recorder to prevent glitches in recordings. This is a free update.
