Apple : Apple Posts Soundtrack 1.2 - macmusicThe latest release of Apple's loop-based video scoring software adds MTC/MIDI beat clock sync, user customizable effect presets, improved support for large audio files, document compression, and enhancements to media manager and timeline.

Virtual Instrument : Battery Updated to v 1.3.2 - macmusicThis is a smaller update that enhances operation within Digital Performer (problems with controlling knobs and sliders in BATTERY are solved). Plus it includes some smaller optimizations for all Mac OS X users.

Known issues:
- Loading a kit in RTAS/OSX: After choosing a new kit in the open dialog the kit cannot be openend by means of the open button, without prior selection of a sample folder. Opening kits using double click works, though.

- Crash while load: BATTERY is likely to crash if you close the plugin battery window while BATTERY is loading a kit.
