I love synthesisers, especially the hybrids that you can create deep rich sounds with based on samples and waveforms like Logic Pro X’s Alchemy. Hexeract is a bit like Alchemy in that it is a very powerful software synth, but it’s much easier and more intuitive to use and allows you to create sounds for any use, such as, of course, music, but also soundscapes, soundtracks and the creation of cinematic atmospheres.
Included with the Ultimate version are 115 plug-ins at no extra charge of which UVI Falcon 2, a virtual instrument that makes it easy to create real-world and out-of-this-world sounds and HEAT (Harmonically Enhanced Algorithm Technology), a software add-on that gives you the euphonic characteristics of prized analogue gear.
iZotope says Dialogue Match is the first product to combine brand-new machine learning with the reverb technology from Exponential Audio’s product line iZotope acquired in 2019. I was very curious to experience the process and the results, so here’s what happened.
The UNO Synth is a monophonic, true analogue synthesiser and IK Multimedia’s entry in the hardware synthesiser world. It’s a combination of IK Multimedia’s experience, the knowledge of synth expert Erik Norlander and the expertise of synth-maker Sound Machines.
SigMod is a NUGEN Audio plug-in that lets you modify stereo signals that you normally wouldn’t be able to change in the many different ways SigMod allows you to.

otope launched Dialogue Match, a tool to automatically learn and match the sonic character of dialogue recordings. It is also the first product to combine machine learning algorithms from iZotope with the reverb technology from Exponential Audio’s product line, which iZotope acquired earlier this year.
Ozone 9, iZotope’s audio mastering plug-in, builds further on its predecessor’s strengths. New features assist newcomers at the art and science of mastering while speeding up the workflow for experienced sound engineers. With services and products that automate the mastering process to a more or less acceptable result breathing down their neck, iZotope has chosen the path of assisted mastering with Ozone which does not exclude the real sound engineer’s personal touch.
As iZotope is preparing for its release of Ozone 9, you can now get Ozone 8 Elements for free until October 2!
Want to have a different sound volume for each app you use? Perhaps some more oomph when you’re in Safari and a reverb while listening to iTunes? In that case, SoundSource 4 is your friend. It’s Rogue Amoeba’s fourth version of this unobtrusive tool and it’s the most advanced Mac audio access and control panel on the market.
