New AU Plug-in Eases Alesis Micron Programming



Retroware has introduced a new Mac-only plug-in that allows remote programming of the Alesis Micron. They can describe it better than I can, though, so here you go:

"micronAU is an audio unit that allows one to fully control and automate the Alesis Micron synthesizer. As anyone who owns one of these synths knows, it can generate some wicked sounds but it can be a real pain to program via its single knob. This audio unit provides an interface through which the entire sound generation engine of the Mircon can be controlled in real time. In addition, all parameter settings are saved when the track/DAW hosting micronAU is saved. When one reloads a track hosting mirconAU, the settings are restored, thus avoiding the "what patch did I use for this track" syndrome. Furthermore, if one's DAW supports automation of plugin parameters, all of the Micron's parameters can be automated and controlled by any of the DAW's supported control surfaces. "

Nice! The plug-in is donationware, so if you download it and find it useful, please throw some ducats this guy's way!

GO GET IT!

damn that mac only stuff...mac is almost forcing me to get one (not that i'll complain about having one...it's just getting to that point where i can buy one). this was (still might be) the first synth i was going to buy but at the time my life fell through and wasn't able to get it. so now i'm going the soft synth route since it's cheaper and even free at times.

It's a shame this software isn't available for windows. I would have looked into buying a copy. Oh well...
