ADverb Updated...

by Chris Randall

Audio Damage ADverb, our "vintage digital" plate, has been updated to 1.1.0. This update includes 32/64-bit Windows VST and 32/64-bit OS X VST and AU. Any remaining vestiges of PPC support have been removed, so if you think you're getting the New Hotness for your old 'n' busted G4 tower, think again. Anyhow, hit the AD Store and you'll find the new ADverb in your account if you're already an owner. If not, I strongly suggest you buy it, because I'm of the considered opinion that the more you engage in commerce with the Audio Damage site, the more I'll like you, and I think we should put that theory to the test.

Kombinat Dva is next out the chute, then the 64-bit version of BS2, and so on and so forth...

Maybe someone that Chris pays attention to on a regular basis will second the motion above. Adam? This is standard practice in the world of software development, no?

I'm still rocking "reverence" as well.

Hey, this works in mono as an AU, too! NIIIIIIICE!!!!

Following up on my previous post, can some of that mono-magic make it back to the DubStation AU, too?

Ahh..i see -Thanks Chris..

Oh..btw.. Phosphor is a brilliant synth.. I love it...very characterful.. and a great service to synth history..as I have never used, and am never likely to use an Apple alphaSyntauri..

I would love to see more unusual Synths by you guys..

Keep up the awesome work!! :-)))

Oh I just stick w/ Reverence for the name, though ADverb does get +1 for the pun.

Ratshack: yeah, we'll fix it up. We're trying to do these updates based upon considerations of product popularity, perceived customer demand, estimated difficulty of the update, personal whim, phase of the moon, what our cats tell us, etc. Please understand that, unlike Windows, the OS X x64 updates take a considerable amount of work. (In the case of ADverb, it was three times as much work.) Ratshack caught us by surprise; we thought that we just needed to rev the installer, so I did that, but ran into some other unexpected issues. We decided to set it aside and do an overhaul of Kombinat, which has become nearly illegible as LCDs have grown. (I tried to tell him, I really did...)

Mono ADverb: thanks for noticing. Yes, the same thing could be done with Dubstation, and I think fairly easily. I will look into it.

Version numbers: Yes, it's an excellent idea. I agree. For some reason I keep forgetting about it. (I think it's because About boxes are CR's domain.) It is now under discussion as I type this.

And another thing...

Reverence, the name: I'll admit to being proud of that one; it's one of the better product names I've coined, if I may say so myself. It was eclipsed recently by a product name I thought of for one of our esteemed colleagues--a certain dynamics processor--which came to me out of the blue as I was scooping cat boxes one evening.

Adam, thanks for responding on the version thing!

One other general suggestion -- all the AD installers want to default to a (probably) hard coded default VST folder which I have to remember to change with every install & update. It would be great if the installer could pull this location from the Windows Registry (while still allowing the user to change it). Mine isn't even on C.

Finally some love for Phase Two. One of my faves. If there was anything I would change it would be to add blend functionality which allows "more" on the wet end of things. I know it's an emulation but it seems to me that it's "set" permanently at around 60-70%.
