What's new in MuLab

Version 8.5.4:
  • The filter sections in MuSynth, MuSampla and MultiSampla have been upgraded to a plug slot which gives many more creative options
  • The filter section in MuVerb has been upgraded to a plug slot which gives many more creative options, including using a MUX or VST plug-in as Pre-Reverb DSP
  • The MuEcho and MuVerb devices now are fully editable modular patches
  • New "Initial Event Generator" module. This module is practical for MUX patches that need a very first (note) event in order to work as expected, eg. to trigger a looped envelope
  • When playing notes via the Virtual MIDI Keyboard while also drawing a waveform could lead to hanging notes. Fixed
  • Fixed a recent new bug regarding sending MIDI Clock out
  • Misc. other improvements
Improved "Plug-In Slot" module:
  • Now also works polyphonically
  • Option to integrate the parameters into the Plug-In Slot editor, also on a front panel

this is not free software. The application downloaded is a demo without a key ( of payment) does not allow or save documents. Therefore, it has no free feature other than that of allowing the program to be tested. What is good to know, and decide your payment or not. But it is not a free program. Nor have I seen on your website, if previous versions were free or not.That could be interesting for those of us who continue to use "old" machines according to the norm imposed by the Apple market.

It just works, after the initial learning curve.

Not a lot of FREE programs that can host VST Instruments, eh? Well, this is one and does it better than I expected. It's not pretty, it's not easy, it's still pretty awesome though.

5.3.25 is the current version, with a creation date of December 19, 2013. You'll find this version number listed in the 'What's New' list above. I think it is well past time MacUpdate ditched the '3.0' listing on this page. *Please* Note that this application is NOT compliant with Apple's user experience guidelines. It looks like a Linux application, although it is only available for Mac and Windows. Therefore, it takes a bit of getting used to with ALL the controls/menus being inside the application window. There is nothing available via the Mac's menubar, which only lists the application name. It can be used with or without a MIDI device attached. It has a huge selection of personalization features. For free, it's terrific! But be prepared to climb the learning curve.

Even though I currently use purchased sequencers such as Live and ProTools I think it's great that a company is offering even a limited version for free. My only request for the free version would be to add rewire even in a stereo form. Prior to owning my current software i looked around endlessly for a free app that can do what luna does + rewire.
