Hi everybody! I’m Evan of Aurchitect Audio Software.
This month’s newsletter is all about new toys! We all love new toys, right?
Myriad 4.2
Myriad is finally beginning its long-deserved section-by-section makeover. To do it all at once would take a bit too long and would be a bit of a shock for everyday users, so I decided to do it in steps...
First up? The Files List.
Completely re-written (in 100% Swift), fixes all known issues, allows for custom ordering, normalizes the controls, improves the UI, improves speed... in general, it’s just a better place to work with your content.
For more details about the new Files List, watch this video.
Myriad 4.2 is available now! You can download it here or update it from within the app.
Announcing Aura: the successor to Spectre
I’ve been working on this project for about a year now – I took nearly every user request into account when I started development. Aura takes advantage of a lot of new technologies and approaches, and I wanted to be sure the control, stability and beauty you expect from Spectre is here - and then some.
Here's a short list of what's coming: (some of these apply only to the Spectrograph)
  • All of the meters are planned to be AUv3 Audio Units which can be used inside Aura or inside your favorite DAW
  • 64-bit audio and analysis throughout for even more accuracy
  • Uses Metal for improved GPU use and speed
  • User-controllable markers
  • Free rotate and flip
  • Configurable rulers on all sides
  • Multiple colored grids
  • Colored overlays
Right now the Spectrograph is the only one I've completed, but I got halted in development as a result of macOS 10.13; Apple made a pretty serious and sudden change to the Audio Unit behavior and I'm not really sure if it's a bug or a feature. Hopefully this will get figured out soon and I can continue development (I'm hoping I don't have to dial back AUv3 support altogether), but I'm stuck for now. I'm anxious to get back on it as soon as I can.
I’m aiming to get Aura released in the first half of 2018.
