Steinberg has announced that VST2 plug-ins will no longer be supported in its host applications. If you rely on legacy plug-ins, that could become a problem.
Celemony has made the ARA protocol available under an open source license. Does this mean that we'll soon see many more ARA-enabled plug-ins?
Under development is an analog/digital hybrid drum machine called Drumlogue with sampling, analog channels and customisable oscillators and effects.
Steinberg has released the VST 3.7 Software Developer Kit (SDK) with new features designed to facilitate VST3 plug-in development. It also includes support for Apple's ARM processors.
Sinevibes says its Groove custom engine for the Korg Logue SDK compatible synthesizers is the most complex and sophisticated yet - get yourself some multi-timbral bass and drum machine of grooviness!
The Korg Prologue's third oscillator just gets more and more interesting. Now someone's taken 6 synthesis models from the Mutable Instrument Plaits and ported it to the Prologue - nice!
The Multi Engine architecture of the Korg Prologue lets you code and design your own customised digital oscillators and effects to run alongside the VCOs. The SDK is now available for download.
Steinberg is calling it a day on the VST 2 Software Development Kit almost 20 years after it first arrived. The 10-year-old VST 3 SDK is the way of the future. What does this mean for you and your plug-ins?
Korg is opening up the Prologue so that you can design your own oscillators and modulation effects with an SDK software developers kit and open development API - wow.
