Faber Acoustical Upgrades SignalSuite To Version 3
Faber Acoustical has upgraded its SignalSuite audio test signal software to version 3. The major upgrade gives SignalSuite new features similar to those found in the recently released SignalScope Pro, including advanced audio device configuration, project files, and Audio Unit plug-in support.
Support for Audio Unit generator plug-ins opens up numerous new possibilities for SignalSuite. The AUAudioFilePlayer plug-in, included with Mac OS X, enables SignalSuite to play back signals stored in audio files. Portions of the audio file may be selected and looped for playback. Plug-in support also allows end users or third parties to develop additional signal types to expand SignalSuite’s capabilities. SignalSuite’s new project-based approach means users can save complex configurations in project files. This makes it easy to keep a number of different signal generator configurations on hand, any of which can be applied by opening its corresponding project file.

â€¢ Select any two output channels on multi-channel audio devices
