Oct 10 - 05:40 PM, by Francois Déchery Music Software > The Wild Bits
Music Software : Ask The DJ 1.4 ! - macmusicNow solely disbributed by MacMusic, The Wild Bits released Ask The DJ version 1.4. This new version includes a new track browser, works with Unicode (Japanese script support) and includes a French version.

Ask The DJ is a $29 shareware which analyses beats to perform truly seamless transitions between tracks. Like a real DJ, it matches beats and adapts tempos whenever needed so the music always flows, even when cross-fading between tracks with different bpms. Ask The DJ also cuts unrhythmical intros and outros, and levels volume. Better yet, all this is done automatically. You just need to click Play and dance. You can also export Ask The DJ's mix art to audio files, suitable for burning audio CDs. AskTheDJ produces perfect transitions, even when mixing tracks with different tempos.

Plug-ins : Antares announces Filter, a Quad Rhythmic Multimode Filters - macmusicFilter is a multi-format plug-in that gives you everything you need to harmonically sculpt your tracks with surgical precision or animate them with a limitless variety of tempo-synced timbral variations.

Filter starts with four true stereo multimode filters that provide all the warmth and smoothness you'd expect from a meticulous model of classic analog filters. Add four individual delay lines, flexible routing options, powerful modulation capabilities, full MIDI control, two programmable rhythm generators and the ability to lock every time-based parameter to Filter's master tempo or external MIDI clock, and you have a tool that will allow you to create tracks (or entire mixes) that pulse with life and character.

Filter will be available around mid October for Mac RTAS (OS 9 and OS X), Mac VST (OS 9 and OS X), and MAS (OS 9 and OS X).
