The guys at U-He are offeringa FREE AAX synth for those who in their words “brave enough to test our first AAX pluggie on Mac?”
Podolski is a simple, CPU-efficient virtual analogue synthesizer. Basically a cut down version of FilterscapeVA with just one oscillator, one filter, one envelope and two LFOs, it also features a Zebra-style arpeggiator/sequencer plus chorus and delay effects.
Podolski’s specialities are the Click parameter (emphasizes the filter attack) and its ability to seamlessly morph between three waveforms (WaveWarp).
Windows users do not despair as they write;
“We believe this to work, and while we’re adding AAX development into our development workflow, we hope that the brave among you out there will give this a spin. Please report any crashes with a crash.log here, and - if possible - compare whether or not this version behaves and sounds the same as its VST/AU counterpart.
If all goes well we’ll need only a few days to port it to Windows, we’ll have to buy 3 more iLoks to add to our build and testing servers and we might get to release AAX betas for everything shortly thereafter.”
Go to their forum here for more information and follow the instructions carefully regarding installation - we do not offer any support on this.
