Good news! If you own (or are even just trying out) any Exponential Audio plug-ins including Phoenixverb, Phoenixverb Surround, R2, R2 Surround and their spectacular Excalibur multi-effects plugin, you're in luck. Michael Carnes and the team at Exponential Audio have just released updates for all their plug-ins.
Every one of the plug-ins features new presets. They also feature fixes specific to each one (which can be found documented in the new installers); however, there are some fixes common to all of them. They include:
- Improved Graphics Performance - OSX Yosemite brought several changes in graphics drivers that occasionally caused flashes when rendering plugins. This has been substantially improved in this new update. A few Windows graphics cards had similar issues, and they should also see improvements.
- New Characters In Preset Names - Many languages use diacriticals (accents, umlauts, etc) that are not part of the English character set. You can now use many of those characters in user preset names and keywords.
- Improved Installers - Common default choices are improved. Windows users no longer need to uninstall before installing new versions.
The best news is that these updates are FREE. Even if you're only using a trial version, you can download the update and try it out. So, go get them now!
