New Sonic Arts has introduced Freestyle, a VST host for stage and studio.
Freestyle is described as ‘a modular sound design and performance environment’. It lets you combine, split, layer and chain VST instruments and FX.
‘Rack View’ is intended for quickly building patches, while ‘Structure View’ provides complete access to the modular architecture, allowing manual ‘wiring’ between any input and output pins.
Here’s the official video demo:
Freestyle’s Plugin Browser provides access to all a user’s VSTs, and includes full text search plus Favorites organization.
Macro Controls and Performance Snapshots allow the user to take their patches on stage, transforming a laptop into a live-rig / keyboard workstation.
Pricing and Availability
Freestyle is available now for € 99.00 (normally € 129.00).
