Apple M1/Big Sur compatibility

All current Expert Sleepers plug-ins are supported and working on macOS 11 Big Sur, natively on Intel macs and under Rosetta on M1 macs.

We have started on native M1 builds. However the main limiting factor here is the lack of availability of a version of the PACE (iLok) tools with support for M1 builds. We anticipate that by the time the PACE tools are available, we will be ready with the native M1 plug-ins and will be able to release updates fairly swiftly.

All plug-ins updated for Logic 10.5 compatibility

The AU versions of all Expert Sleepers plug-ins have been updated for compatibility with the recently-released Logic 10.5.

All Mac OS X plug-ins updated

All Mac OS X versions of Expert Sleepers plug-ins have today been updated. This is primarily a maintenance update to allow an update to the Licence Manager, but there are new additions too.

The Licence Manager is updated to v1.1.0, with changes for compatibility with recent OS X releases. With this Licence Manager, please use the versions of the plug-ins listed below (or later). If you update any of your plug-ins to these new versions, please be sure to update all of them, and the Licence Manager. If you subsequently have activation issues, please work through the suggestions on the Licence Manager page before contacting us.

Silent Way is updated to v2.4.3. Changes in this version:
• Added support for MIDI output of Song Position Pointer.
• Added support for MIDI output of sysex data to the AAX version.
• Fixed a possible crash when using the OSC browse dialog in 64 bit hosts.
• Added ‘Match Note Offs’ feature to Silent Way ES-4 Controller and Silent Way ES-5 Controller.

Minky Starshine is updated to v1.1.0 and Warbler is updated to v1.2.0. These are the first 64 bit releases of these two plug-ins (happily bringing the full Expert Sleepers line to 64 bit; adding AAX compatibility for everything is next on the list).

The following releases are for Licence Manager compatibility only, and add no new features:
Augustus Loop v2.4.2
Crossfade Loop Synth v3.2.5
Little Spacey v1.1.1

Oomingmak audio demos posted

I've been sitting on these for some time, and now I don't remember why, so I've posted them on the Oomingmak page.

Oomingmak v1.0.0 released - new plug-in!




We're proud to announce the release of Oomingmak, a new plug-in for Mac OS X (AU/VST) and Windows (VST).

Oomingmak is a pitch- and envelope-tracking (re)synthesis effect. Or, to put it another way, if you feed a sound source (e.g. a guitar) into Oomingmak it will come out sounding like you're playing an analogue monosynth. Or maybe something else entirely.

To celebrate the release of our first all-new product for quite some time, we're offering $10 off any other Expert Sleepers product when purchased at the same time as Oomingmak. Simply enter this coupon code at the checkout: CPN3866168290

Please note that to take advantage of this offer you'll need to make your purchase via the online store, as the Licence Manager doesn't allow you to buy more than one thing at once.

New plug-in coming soon

Some time in the next week or so we'll be releasing a new product, the first all-new (non-free) plug-in since Warbler was released in May 2007.

It's called Oomingmak, and it's going to be particularly cool for guitarists.
