Cycling '74 announced Radial 1.1, an extensible loop-based composition and performance tool designed for Mac users who are looking to explode the boundaries between live performance, sound design and composition. Radial 1.1 takes advantage of Mac OS X's Core Audio and Core MIDI, which makes the use of multiple I/O audio interfaces straightforward and renders OMS and ASIO unnecessary. Radial 1.1 also includes several enhancements, including a convenient new file-grouping mechanism and improved sync capabilities.

Radial is a loop-based performance software with an interface that is optimized for playing live. The program is based on loop channels represented by circular displays, each with its own performable multifilter and pitch shifting/time scaling. Almost every aspect of the system can be configured for live performance, studio recording or sound exploration, controlled from a variety of sources (control surfaces, MIDI, keyboard or mouse). Radial features complete multichannel audio I/O support, audio and effects routing, and support for VST plug-ins.

Radial supports all major audio file formats and I/O standards. Users will also receive a dozen plug-in effects from the Pluggo collection, as well as a free library of loops. Pluggo 1.1 includes new plug-ins for live audio input, parameter automation and reverb.

Radial has a SRP of $199 and is expected to be available for purchase or download from at the beginning of November. Version 1.1 of Radial for OS X is available as a free upgrade to all registered Radial users.
