FabFilter has announced FabFilter One in the VST plug-in format for Mac OS X, in the addition to the existing Audio Units version. This makes it possible to use FabFilter One in VST-only hosts on OS X, such as Cubase or Tracktion.
Originally released in March 2004, FabFilter One focuses on the best possible sound and filter quality. The approach yields a pure and solid-sounding oscillator and a self-resonating cut-off filter that has been tuned carefully to achieve the character and warmth of a classic analog synthesizer. FabFilter One’s filter sounds raw but never cheap or ‘digital’, even at full resonance.
FabFilter is currently finishing its next product, FabFilter Volcano, an extensive filter effect plug-in building on the filter technology developed for FabFilter One. The release is planned for Spring 2005.
FabFilter One 3.0 is now available for $59 (US) as an Audio Units plug-in and a VST plug-in for Mac OS X and as a VST plug-in and stand-alone version for Windows on http://www.fabfilter.com. System requirements are either Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) or higher with an Audio Units or VST 2 host, or Windows XP, 2000, 98, Me, or 2003, with a VST 2 host.
