SoundHack VST, VST3 and Audio Unit plugins are now compatible with macOS Catalina. AAX plugins have yet to be tested thoroughly. When updating to the new Catalina plugins, make sure to delete the current plugins from /Library/Audio/Plug-ins first.
The classic SoundHack program from 1991 is not compatible with macOS Catalina. It was programmed initially on Mac OS 7, and subsequently updated with the CarbonLib to run on OS X and then macOS. CarbonLib is only available as 32-bit, so SoundHack cannot be updated to 64-bit. A replacement program is in process, but not everything in classic SoundHack will be recreated.
++spiralstretch has been updated for macOS and Windows to fix an incompatibility with Izotope RX Audio Editor. It is now compatible. No other changes have been made.
I have just released version 2.12 of ++binaural, ++spectralgate and ++phasemash. Several bug fixes including a startup crash that affected certain macOS users (windows users only need the new ++phasemash), and the ++phasemash bandshift control now works correctly. Registered users can download from their customer account (under the checkout menu).
++pitchsift and ++pvocloop have been updated to correct a bug which caused problems when loading the plugins in Ableton Live. ++pvocloop has also been updated to add glissando to the pitch control while being modulated. thanks to AB for reporting the bugs.
registered users will be able to download the updated plugins from “checkout:customer account”. windows users should uninstall the previous version before installing 2.12.
version 9.12 of the free soundhack delay kit is now available for macOS and Windows. the bundle contains: ++flipper, for synchronized reverse delay; ++bubbler – an extremely flexible and MIDI playable granular delay; ++pitchdelay for old school multitap delay-based pitch-shifting; and ++delay – a fully featured 10 second delay, with extensive modulation and feedback filtering. this version of the bundle features updated compression and saturation algorithms in the feedback patch for more variety in high feedback delay processing. enjoy!
bug fixes include a ++flipper AU authorization problem, and MIDI errors regarding octave recognition in ++bubbler and ++pitchdelay. thanks to ML for pointing out the MIDI bugs!
windows users should uninstall the previous version before installing 9.12.
the delay kit can be downloaded from the http://www.soundhack.com on the freeware page.
