Pluggo 3 Supports RTAS

New release includes Essential Instruments collection By Dave Nagel
Cycling '74 has released pluggo 3.0. Pluggo is an audio processing plugin for VST and MAS systems, and version 3.0 adds support for Digidesign's Real-Time Audio Suite format (RTAS).

Pluggo includes more than 100 real-time audio effects and virtual instruments. It also allows users to create their own custom plug-ins using Max/MSP, Cycling '74's companion authoring software. Pluggo 3 also makes use of the new Max4/MSP2 audio programming environment and includes the Essential Instruments collection, a set of instruments initially developed by eowave.

Pluggo effects include filtering, delay effects, distortion, granular synthesis, audio routing, sampling and synthesis, reverb and sound localization. The software also offers modulation, synchronization and audio and control routing capabilities between plugins. The synths and samplers in the Essential Instruments collection range from additive synths and analog-modeling drum and percussion synths to granular, FM and wavetable synthesis.

Pluggo 3 is available today for $199 for the full version or $59 for registered owners of earlier versions of Pluggo or Max/MSP. Max4/MSP2 is available now for $495. Max/MSP requires a Power Mac running Mac OS 8.1 or later. Pluggo requires Mac OS 7.5.5 or later. Neither supports Mac OS X. For more information, visit
