Aalto is a new semi-modular software synthesizer with an innovative, patchable UI, distinctive sounds, and a charming personality. It is out now as an Audio Unit plugin for MacOS X. Madrona Labs have recently released an 1.1 version update.
Much faster: Aalto now runs 25 to 50% faster than version 1.0.
Installer: Easy install using Apple’s Installer puts Aalto’s bits where they belong.
New preset management UI: Load and save presets from the Aalto window.
Copy and paste presets: From the preset menu to and from the clipboard, for easy sharing, editing, and backup.
Host sync: Aalto’s sequencer now has rock-solid synchronization with your DAW’s clock.
Tuning tables: Load tunings from the Scala .scl file format. Over 100 different tunings categorized by musical tradition are included.
Sequencer modes: Key trigger and loop mode allow new uses of the sequencer.
Many minor bug fixes have also been implemented. See the bug tracker for a complete list.
