High-end plug-in specialist Softube announces availability of version 2.3.76 of its plug-ins installer with a fix for Windows 10 users and a long line of minor bug fixes, as well as two new utility modules for their synthesizer plugin Modular. Dual X-Fade and Dual Pan, the two new additions to the plugin instrument, are available free of charge to existing and future Modular owners as of September 26, 2016.
Dual X-Fade is a two-channel, CV-controllable crossfade module that lets you create new and interesting textures by blending two separate mono signals. For example, patch in two different waveforms from an oscillator — such as sine or saw — and use the blend knob to set the level between the two signals. You can also morph seamlessly between them by manually adjusting the blend knob while the song is playing or control the knob with an LFO via CV.
A two-channel, CV-controllable panning module. Use Dual Pan to place one or two mono signals anywhere in the stereo mix panorama, such as two percussive sounds that the user wants to separate in the stereo image, for example. The 1+2 outputs can be used for a stereo sum of the two L and two R outputs. Dual Pan can also be used as an A/B switch to send a CV or audio signal to two different inputs.
Modular owners can simply download the new installer from http://softu.be/get_installer, run it, and the new modules will be available in the Module Selector window.
Furthermore, the 2.3.76 software includes a large number of bug fixes. Most importantly, the issues for Windows 10 users have been remedied, so Softube’s plug-ins are again fully compatible with Windows 10.
