Backline is our new utility for Mac OS X. Think of it as Cocktail or OnyX for audio geeks. What does it do?
  • Audio File First Aid: repair malformed audio files
  • Effect Manager: manages Audio Units and VST plug-ins including SmartGroups
  • Effect Update: Effect Manager integrates with our forthcoming online plug-in database and tells you when updates to your plug-ins have posted (think MacUpdate + software update for plug-ins)
  • Effect Audition: load any Audio Units or VST effect and see how it sounds using our built-in sound files or your own
  • MIDI Tools: MIDI Monitor, MIDI Clock, MIDI Timecode Generator
