Now we have the all singing and dancing Apple super-computer and latest OS, but what can you run on it eh? One thing's for sure you can run the Spectrasonics virtual instrument plug-ins Trilogy, Stylus and Atmosphere. Their new updates add enhanced compatibility for Apple's powerful new Macintosh G5 and the latest OS X version 10.3, code named Panther. All Mac OSX plug-in platforms have been updated, including Steinberg VST, Digidesign RTAS and Apple's new Audio Units plug-in format. The updates also support the previous OS X version, Jaguar v10.2. The plug-ins are available for registered owners as a free download from the Spectrasonics website.
The plug-ins now support the key OSX plug-in platforms, creating wide compatibility for all popular Mac host programs including Emagic Logic Audio 6, Digidesign Pro Tools 6, Steinberg Cubase SX2 and Nuendo 2, and Mark of the Unicorn Digital Performer 4.1. All three Spectrasonics products are also fully compatible with Microsoft Windows VST host applications.
Spectrasonics' Trilogy Total Bass Module plug-in is the only virtual instrument plug-in of its kind that specializes in powerful realizations of all three categories of bass sounds: acoustic bass, electric bass guitar and synthesizer bass.
