BitHeadz has released version 2.1 of Retro AS-1, its virtual analog synthesizer for Mac. The new version offers support for dual processors in the new G4 lineup. This support includes a doubling of the maximum number of voices and the use of the second CPU for background operations for overall speedier performance. Retro AS-1 will achieve up to 128 stereo voices.

BitHeadz says it expects to release a 2.1 update for Unity DS-1, it's digital sampler, soon. Unity will gain similar performance enhancements, including speedier performance and polyphony reaching 256 stereo voices.

The new version of Retro AS-1 and the forthcoming version of Unity DS-1 are both free updates available from the BitHeadz Web site. For more information, visit
