Aspect 1.4.0 released

Aspect has been updated to 1.4.0. This release adds a few minor fixes and features:
  • Support for the sustain MIDI controller.
  • Lag Generator component now only filters audio rate modulation sources when the Lag is set to above 0%.
  • Lag Generator output can now be used as an audio source, as well as a modulation source.
Sustain MIDI controller support
The sustain MIDI controller acts in a similar fashion to a sustain pedal on a piano, allowing notes to be sustained indefinitely whilst the sustain is on and releasing when sustain is switched off.

Lag Generator
The Lag Generator can now be used as an audio source. To route the Lag Generator audio into the main Aspect audio stream, choose Lag Generator as the audio input for either Filter1 or Filter2. When used on an audio source, the Lag Generator acts as a very simple lowpass filter with the cutoff frequency dropping as the Lag parameter increases.

Aspect is available as a download for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux, in Audio Unit, RTAS, VST Plugin, and Standalone application format.
