Spectrasonics has released new updates to its virtual instrument plug-ins Trilogy (shown), Stylus and Atmosphere. The updates add enhanced compatibility for the Apple Macintosh G5 and OS X Version 10.3, Panther. All Mac OS X plug-in platforms have been updated, including Steinberg VST, Digidesign RTAS and Apple's new Audio Units plug-in format. The updates also support the previous OS X version, Jaguar V. 10.2. The plug-ins are available for registered owners as a free download from the Spectrasonics Website.

Spectrasonics' Trilogy Total Bass Module plug-in is a virtual instrument plug-in kind that specializes in powerful realizations of all three categories of bass sounds: acoustic bass, electric bass guitar and synthesizer bass. Unique features include True Staccato, Release Triggering and Trilogy's dual-layer architecture. The company's Atmosphere Dream Synth Module plug-in is a sample-based, dual-layer synthesizer module with more than 1,000 unique sounds and layer elements that can be manipulated with its interface to shape new textures. More than 1 million layer combinations are available for a range of sonic colors.

The Stylus Vinyl Groove Module plug-in integrates a massive core library of thousands of cutting-edge groove elements, loops and samples, with a powerful user interface to create completely new grooves. Stylus uses Spectrasonics' "Groove Control" feature, which offers dynamic pitch, tempo and feel changes to mix and match grooves.

All three 32-bit plug-ins offer massive 3GB core libraries and have powerful and intuitive interfaces to customize sounds with onboard multimode resonant filters; envelopes for pitch, filter and amplitude; matrix-style modulation routing; multiple LFOs; parameter automation; and more. Each plug-in has total recall of all settings using a host sequencing program.
