Now available for all registered users!
Version 1.0.4 contains both new powerful features and several improvements. Independence is now compatible with Logic 7.2, Digital Performer and ProTools 7.x, and is also specially optimized for live performances: To accelerate loading times and thus your work, we integrated the powerful “pre-cache” option. You can pre-load Layers into Independence which are available immediately when you activate them - without any additional loading time and no additionally required RAM (like streaming) or other system resources. Combined with the new "MIDI program change" feature you can switch between the currently loaded Layer patches directly with your MIDI keyboard in real time.
Also improved is the entire "Slice Mode" with an automatic BPM calculation. For a better overview and control also a MIDI indicator and a MIDI panic button is now included.
This update is recommended to all users of prior versions.
Together with the Update also the german Independence 1.0.4 manual and the Independence brochure is available for download on the product pages.
