TC Works has announced that Spark 2.5, the new version of its audio processing application, is now shipping with Mac OS X support.

The new version contains numerous speed enhancements, according to TC Works, as a result of feedback from audio professionals about their workflow. Among the new features:

  • New cursor behavior makes locating edit points and creating regions faster and more precise

  • Improved file handling allows direct access to MP3 and QuickTime files

  • A new visual scrub tool enables tape-style acoustic navigation through a file, and the waveform overview and zoom handling have been streamlined for speed and efficienc.

  • Large projects will open up to 10 times faster in Spark 2.5, thanks to a greatly enhanced file handling

  • Master View includes instantly definable effect matrix resizing and a Mono Audition function for monitoring.

  • Full multi-processing support allows users of dual-CPU Mac

  • Also, movies and files in QuickTime format can now be loaded directly into Sparks main browser window. The Mac OS X version supports Apples Core Audio for extremely low latencies and Apples Core MIDI, so the modular synthesizer is playable directly from any connected MIDI device.

    Spark 2.5 has a suggested list price of U.S. $399 (360 ex. VAT/ 299 incl. VAT). For Spark XL 2.5 the suggested list price is U.S. $699 ( 650 ex. VAT / 499 incl. VAT-- includes TC Native Bundle).
