As we mentioned in the news story on the release of the Plugin Alliance Instant Delay plug-in from Plugin Alliance partner Unfiltered Audio is the first plug-in developer to embrace Roli's Lightpad Block control surface.
Plugin Alliance Promotion Partnership With ROLI
In a six-month promotion running until November 25 2017, Instant Delay worth $49.00 USD will be free for ROLI BLOCKS product purchasers. Once they have registered their Roli Blocks they will be issued with a voucher code to redeem for a copy of Instant Delay at the Plugin Alliance webstore.
Upgrade To Unfiltered Audio Sandman Pro for $29
Plugin Alliance is also offering an upgrade path to all Instant Delay owners to the latest (v1.1) update of Sandman Pro (normal price $99) for $29
"A Match Made In Heaven" Says Plugin Alliance CEO Matt Ward
Plugin Alliance CEO Matt Ward sees the cutting-edge companies concerned as a match made in heaven, revealing,
ROLI is a true innovator in our industry, so we were really excited to be able to partner them up with arguably our most innovative Alliance member, Unfiltered Audio. Neither company is satisfied with redoing what’s already been done; rather, they strive for new ways to create music and sounds. We can’t wait to see what the world’s creative community will come up with by combining BLOCKS and Instant Delay.
ROLI Senior Director of Developer Products and Partnerships Jean-Baptiste Thiebaut agrees..
We are delighted to partner with Plugin Alliance and Unfiltered Audio on the release of the new Instant Delay and updated Sandman Pro. Their integration with BLOCKS shows both the cutting-edge quality of their plugin designs as well as the exciting potential of BLOCKS as an open platform for app development.
Unfiltered Audio’s Dr. Michael Hetrick clearly concurs:
When ROLI announced the Lightpad Block, we were blown away. The combination of portability and flexibility excited us so much that we reached out to ROLI with our design ideas. We think our performance-based modulation system demonstrates a future of plugins as real-time instruments — not just point-and-click studio tools. We cannot wait to hear what our users make with this creative combo!
It is great to see innovative companies teaming up to produce even greater creative opportunities. It is a clear case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. Well done ROLI and Plugin Alliance and lets hope this is the first in many partnerships.
