Quantum FX 2 for OS X and Windows Released

db audioware has released version 2 of its flagship product, Quantum FX. Quantum FX is a software modular effects system that enables musicians and sound engineers to design, build and modify plug-in effects and audio tools. The system is supplied with over 50 ready-to-use effects and audio tools, with more available from the Quantum FX online effects library.

With the release of version 2, Quantum FX now supports Audio Units and VST on Mac OS X, as well as VST on PC Windows.

Major changes since version 1 include:

  • Audio Units and VST support for Mac OS X
  • Full sidechaining (for multi-track hosts) - control effects on one track using audio from a different track
  • MIDI Learn gives instant control of any QFX plug-in using an external MIDI control surface
  • Advanced MIDI control modules allow keyboard-driven effects to be built using the Workbench
  • Improved support for 3rd party DirectX-VST adapters
  • Completely new ready-to-use plug-ins: SideDyn: sidechain compressor & gate, eg for voice ducking between tracks, ChainSaw: sidechaining resonant filter for multi-track hosts, Trance Gate: 32 step rhythmic gate & filter, synchronises to host tempo, Q-Delay: tempo based 3 channel delay, filter & panner

In addition to the Workbench and 50+ Factory Effects, customers buying Quantum FX v2 will receive two bonus premium plug-ins:

  • Destination: a full mastering toolkit in one effect.
  • Aura: a virtual guitar amp loosely modelled on a classic British design but with a highly modified gain/EQ structure.
