Minimal Audio Releases Rift 2.0

Minimal Audio has released Rift 2.0, which they describe as their most significant update yet. They tell us that Rift now includes flexible multi-band effects, allowing you to send any combination of distortion feedback, and filters through the multi-band crossover. They say that they've listened to users' feedback and updated Rift's UI to include beautiful dark and light mode skins -- allowing users to switch between seamlessly. Here's more details in the company's own words...
