Cycling '74 announce Pluggo for Windows. This package of native audio processing plug-ins will be available for Windows XP host applications supporting the VST and RTAS formats.
Pluggo offers over 100 creative and unusual real-time audio effects and includes the Essential Instruments collection, a set of synthesizers and samplers. In addition, users can create their own custom plug-ins using Max/MSP, Cycling '74's DSP authoring software. Pluggo effects include filtering, delay effects, distortion, granular synthesis, audio routing, sampling and synthesis, reverb, and sound localization. In addition, Pluggo offers modulation, synchronization, and audio and control routing capabilities between plug-ins.
The Windows release improves upon several of the venerable Pluggo effects with audio quality enhancements and efficiency improvements.
Pluggo users who want to build their own plug-ins entirely from scratch can create them using Cycling '74's Max/MSP software. Support for effects automation, parameter management, presets, host synchronization, and undo is provided in the development environment. Pluggo lets you develop a single plug-in that works in both the RTAS and VST host environments. A free runtime plug-in environmentinstaller will be available free from the Cycling '74 web site.
Pluggo for Windows should be available by the end of the year.
