Granted Software has announced the availability of Rax 1.0 for Mac
OS X. Rax turns your Mac into a virtual rig for live performance, slaving
instruments and effects from another app or offloading DSP to a second computer.
With its streamlined UI, it's easy to play AudioUnit instruments and process
live audio through your AudioUnit effects. One-touch record lets you capture
a great riff without delay.
Rax comes with many features such as multiple synths per rack, flexible effect
routing including insert, send and master effects, a 16 channel mixer, and
support for live audio inputs.
MIDI features include layering , keyboard and velocity splits, multiple inputs,
host based MIDI learn for AudioUnit controls and external MIDI clock sync.
The product is available as a download directly from Granted Software for
USD $29.95. Until a license is purchased users are limited to a single instrument
and audio input per rack and recording is disabled.
