Linplug Releases Maintenance Update 1.22 For Octopus Virtual Synthesizer
Linplug has released an special maintenance update for their Octopus virtual synth fixing the performance problem on PowerPC Macs. The new version 1.22 and is a recommended update for all Octopus users on a Mac with a G4 or G5 processor.
The Octopus is a Dual-Matrix synthesizer containing one Matrix for Oscillator/Filter frequency modulation synthesis and another Matrix for general modulation. The key component for building a sound is the instrumentâ€™s 8 oscillators, Sampler, 2 filters and 32 envelopes. These components are all it needs to create anything from classic â€œold schoolâ€ FM timbres to complex sounds far beyond those possible with conventional FM synthesis. Editing the Octopus is a breeze, because all controls are located on a single panel which is always on view, so you can see at a glance any synth parameter.
The update is free. The full version of Octopus costs $149 / €129. More information on the Linplug Octopus.
