Happy holidays from Madrona Labs!

It's damp and chilly, and I hear the gray pitter patter of endless rain. Looking out my window I see gray sky, gray water, gray trees and gray clouds. That's right, it's Christmas in Seattle.

Because of your support of Aalto these past few months, I can now work full time to bring you more software and hardware to make music with. And that is something I am very thankful for. I am very excited about what we will have to offer this coming year: Aalto for Windows, the Soundplane A, and more software instruments that are even farther off the beaten path.

As a small way to say thanks, today I'm releasing Aaltoverb for Mac OS X. Aaltoverb is just the reverb section from Aalto, packaged up as its own plugin and with mix and brightness knobs added. It won't replace your ValhallaShimmer, but it is easy on the CPU and on the eyes, and I hope it makes a nice addition to your box of colors. Download it here: [Aaltoverb.dmg]

Aaltoverb is an Audio Unit plugin. It requires an Intel processor of speediness 1.6 GHz or higher, and Mac OS of versioniness 10.5 or higher.

Happy holidays and all best wishes for the new year!
