Igor Vasiliev has published SoundSaw 1.3, a free update that turns its experimental distortion into a universal app with macOS AUv3 support
At the beginning of August, I reported on the free AltiSpace update, which gives Igor Vasiliev’s advanced convolution reverb app macOS support. A very welcome update as it adds this functionality at no additional cost.
Barely two weeks after this update, there is now another major update. Today the experimental distortion app SoundSaw got an update that makes it ready for macOS.
The new free update 1.3 turns SoundSaw into a universal application app for iOS and macOS. So it can not only work on iPhone/iPad but also macOS with M1 chips and later. It runs as a standalone app and AUv3 plugin in DAWs like Ableton Live, Logic Pro, GarageBand, Mainstage, Cockos Reaper…
SoundSaw 1.3 update also adds MIDI support with MIDI learn option and audio unit parameters. It now has a built-in detailed description of all parameters, available as a PDF file.
As a reminder, SoundSaw is a complex, experimental sound processor designed for unique sonic destruction, all made available with easy-to-use controls. Including different models of simulated signal processing electronic circuits, a maximizer, a unique distortion section with different sub-features, a filter with an envelope generator, and more. Further, the new update brings optimization to the audio engine and fixed minor bugs.
A very welcome update for a very exciting special sound effect processor app. I’m glad more iOS AUv3 apps are making it to macOS.
SoundSaw 1.3 update is available now as a free update for existing users. The app is available from the Apple AppStore for $5.99 USD and includes both versions.
