Fairlight Opens The Door To Even Greater Functionality

(September 21, 2001)
In a move that extends the functionality and versatility of Fairlight digital audio production systems to new levels, the company today announced the incorporation of VST Plug-ins into its Fairlight Plug-ins Manager. Now, the Fairlight user base worldwide will be able to easily access and safely avail of a wide variety of audio production tools including time stretching, pitch shifting and reverbs among hundreds of other effects. According to Per Larsen, COO, Steinberg Media Technologies AG, Fairlight now boasts more plug-ins than any other professional workstation available today. "Fairlight has a preeminent record of openness and cooperation with other manufacturers in its drive to make its customers the best equipped in the market," Larsen said today. "Today's announcement is a tremendous affirmation of corroboration among manufacturers and it's an equally strong endorsement of the VST developer forum."

Effective immediately, a wide selection of VST plug-ins may be accessed by Fairlight users at pro audio or MI retailers or on the Internet ( and loaded into Fairlight's recently introduced Plug-Ins Manager, an independent CPU that provides all of the plug-in functionality yet sidesteps the system integrity and reliability issues traditionally associated with third-party software integration. Today's announcement, says Fairlight ESP VP of Marketing, Karl Seglins, makes Fairlight an even more compelling choice in digital audio production systems.

"Now more than ever, Fairlight represents the professional's preference in digital audio production systems," Seglins said. "Our adoption of VST and other plug-in formats is a direct result of listening to our customers and bringing to them the highest levels of openness and system functionality we could without compromising the bullet-proof reliability for which we've become known and which our customers demand."
